Apple's warranties are world wide however you may give up walk-in service by some authorized repair centers if they don't want to take that repair. You can arrange service in the US (since your original purchase was from the US) over the web or by phone. The mail in procedure is clearly explained at https://ssl.apple.com/support/iphone5-sleepwakebutton/ ...

Have you actually tried the ever-hopeful trick of just playing dumb & taking it along to an Apple Store? Face to face might just get you the sympathy required for them to just do the fix anyway.

Close System Preferences In Finder, go to folder /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration Delete all network related files, namely: com.apple.airport.preferences.plist com.apple.network.identification.plist ...

Go to System Preferences -> Energy Saver and uncheck the 'Wake for Wi-Fi network access' option This fixed the network-not-connecting-after-sleep issue on my brand new MBP 10.9.4, but I wasn't using an Airport Extreme... so maybe that part of the equation is just coincidence in your case.

To keep wireless printing available, you need to stop your Mac from sleeping. To disable sleep on Mac OS X: Launch System Preferences.app from the Applications folder. Select Energy Saver Move the Computer sleep: slider to far left.

Your full hard drive could be a reason. Some space is needed for swap and sleepimages and whatnot, and OS X has difficulties operating when it only has so little space free for those tasks. Try freeing some space (at least 5GB is recommended by Apple if I recall, I'd try to free more just to try).

One workaround is to get Seil, which is mainly used for remapping the Caps Lock key. Check the first box, Change Caps Lock, and change the "keycode" on the right to 59 (the code for left control).

It turns out the cause is Spotify. It seems to be a bug with the Spotify app. Yet no bug fix has been released. If you have spotify running, kill it and see if you get this issue still.

Had similar problem, so took it to Genius Bar for investigation. Turned out to be the battery charger sensor module, which is built into the battery level indicator on the side of the Macbook (the 5 green light thing). It was malfunctioning, basically telling the Macbook that any battery was dead, even if the battery was good. YMMV.

Per the pmset man page: sleep - system sleep timer (value in minutes, or 0 to disable) So, your computer (Mac Pro, I'm assuming by the question tag) is set to sleep the system after one minute, but other sleep functions that depend on the system (putting the display to sleep, putting the disk to sleep, etc.) are set to run after the system is supposed ...

I have the same behaviour with exception of the Automatic reboot (it does not do that). I explain it this way. When going to sleep mode Mac will create a Sleep image of the system status/configuration. It is not monitoring the external devices during the sleep. If you disconnect the monitor during the sleep it will not know that. When it wakes up it ...

I had the same problem in Mavericks with a brand new Macbook Pro Retina (Late 2013). When I closed the lid and left the laptop closed overnight it never went to sleep. In the morning, the battery would be dead or very low. As it turns out... my problem was due to a piece of software installed by my company's IT: Symantec Encryption Desktop (SED) As ...

Actually you have Kernel Problems, which is bit more serious. You can try repairing the Kernel (Operating system) , or reinstall it. On top of already recommended Graphics fix (off) try following: Reset your NVRAM/PRAM.

Seems to me like GPU failure. If the descrete GPU is dead, the these kinds of symptoms appear. If you try to connect an external monitor or use GPU dependent applications, the system will freeze and/or the screen will go black. You have to force shutdown it.

These 2 lines of network initialization look suspicious: 4/10/14 12:28:54.000 kernel[0]: en1: promiscuous mode enable succeeded 4/10/14 12:28:54.000 kernel[0]: en2: promiscuous mode enable succeeded This mode may cause your network interfaces to drain your battery when on this mode of power supply.

To service the battery yourself. You have 2 options. One is to completely discharge the battery (to reset the indicators), by letting the computer run until it shuts off. The other is to reset your SMC, because that reports the battery state to the system. Last, but not least, your battery seems to be EOL anyway (after 4 Years)

Caffeine is a small free app that can be used to temporarily override Mac settings such as sleep, screen dimming, and screen savers. The app lives in your menu dock, where you can click to turn it on (fill up the coffee cup) before your presentation, and then turn it back off (empty the coffee cup) after your presentation to set your settings back to normal. ...
