I have solved this indirectly in the past several times like this: One Mac (the one that is supposed to never sleep) has a Energy Saver schedule to wake up or power on every morning at 2:55 AM. It's set to not sleep, but it also has launchd jobs (cron is fine too if you want to maintain that older scheduling method) that SSH in to the client Macs. The ...

So I figured it out. It was the Logitech Control Center for Marble Trackball. It doesn't leave anything in the system log. The watchdogd complains every time I close the lid, and it is independent of the input hang phenomenon. I uninstalled LCC 3.9.2.

I had the same problem where my fan was running on high virtually the entire time I was using my Macbook Pro (mid-2014), and found this site. After looking at the posts here I decided to check the Activity Monitor, and for me, it wound up being Google Chrome. The Chrome Helper processes were many, and multiple instances running at the same time. After ...

If you are playing a playlist or album you have to play the whole thing to the end or just fast forward. Then the player shuts down and reverts back to the clock.

Reading your logs shows: You are connecting to a server named FUTCHERIMAGER to get your Internet which seems to have some problems with your connection. Your Bluetooth and your WiFi should be turned off if you do not use them. It looks like you are using the Airplay, so you might need to turn them on back again.

You can try "Lock Me Now" app from the app store. It gives a pretty neat way to lock the mac.

I had this issue with my new MacBook Pro once. I found that I had NoSleep enabled (even with the app closed). If you have NoSleep installed make sure you turn it off.

When any computer is asleep it still uses power to keep the ram fresh. Another thing that macs do is to occasionally check for new emails and notifications even while asleep. This feature is called power nap. To turn that off, visit https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204032 for information. Leslie's advice will help even more with using hibernate instead ...

I had the same problem with my MacBook Air. Tried different settings etc, didnt work. Then I noticed one pattern - If I had Chrome running, then this happens, but if I had quit chrome before closing the lid, then battery remains. So, thats what I am doing now. Making sure Chrome is not running when I close the lid.

Its possible that a USB device (keyboard, mouse, external USB hard drive, etc) is not behaving. If you have other USB-connected devices, does this still occur when they are disconnected? You don't mention any additional USB devices being connected, so I'm assuming only a keyboard/mouse combo. Disconnect all USB devices but the keyboard/mouse then type the ...

I have the same issues with my mid-2010 mac 13" too.. i am guessing its the logic board and perhaps have it cleaned up and put some thermal paste too.. as well as cleanin the fan. A computer technician friend gave me this hint

I set a 24-hour delay before the SSD goes into standby mode: sudo pmset -a standbydelay 86400 and my MBP now unlocks just fine after waking up.

Fan function is regulated by temperature sensors. As long the temperature is to high the fan keeps working regardless if you are in sleep mode or not. Since you turned off the heat source that action is usually very short. Somewhat like you car fan, that continues to spin even if you turn off the engine if the temperature is to high.

as far as i know thats a result of a design. if i am to assume you're using wifi while connected to vpn iphones usually puts the wifi chip on sleep while the screen is locked. to preserve battery life if the module is not being used. that being said, it might as well be due to your vpn, I've used different types of vpn some loose connection sporadicly after ...

Hadn't seen this solution anywhere which worked for me and a coworker. Check to see if there are any updates for your mac. I had a security update that I was not aware of so I updated and restarted without my monitor connected and it started up just fine.

I used to have the same problem, but since installed an app called "Mountain". It allows me to customize which volumes to eject and also re-connect for me on wake. It is not a free app, but it's worth the $5.99 (as of the time I write this). http://appgineers.de/mountain/ Note, I don't work for them nor am I connected to them in any way. I just like the ...

Oh man - that's a bad situation. All is certainly not lost. I would start by calling one or two data recovery services to get a quote from them. Once you have that, consider you could pay $99 for software that would look over the drive and offer to recover files. With those estimates, you can decide if your time and photos are worth further efforts to ...

I have had the same problem with Maverick (in clamshell mode) / external monitor (Samsung SyncMaster 2443) when I lock my screen and use my bluetooth mouse or keyboard to wake up the computer. I was able to fix the problem in 2 ways: open the lid, login and unplu, replug the external monitor (pretty annoying) when the multicolor static shows, press ...

@bayindirh Yes, the save to disk is when the battery runs down. (I wonder whether that's what the Sleepimage file is for, since it wouldn't be a regular shutdown). That feature is available with all portables, even older once, including your 2008. The newer models can do suspend to disk which is apparently (?) using the same Sleepimage file to save copy of ...

Mac portables will go to sleep when their lids are closed but, story doesn't end here. If you leave your mac for prolonged in standby mode and its batters run downs, mac will suspend to disk and will shutdown completely. My early 2008 MacBook Pro does it all the time, so I can assume that new macs are also doing it.

I am wondering whether MacBook Pro 2010 is capable of Standby (suspend to disk) or not at all? Suspend to disk works fine on Mac Air, that's why the Standby lasts long, but I can't get it working on MBP 2010. I tried the settings with "1", "3" or "25" but I see no difference. The "Sleepimage" file is created but it's never touched and never changes date ...

MacBook Air can easily last up to 30 days (I believe it's close to 25-28 days) in stand-by/hibernation, not sure where the 3 and 9 days come from.

I got this issue when I updated my MacBook to 10.10.3. There was no backlight on Apple Logo. The screen was showing blank. On reading above posts, It was cleared that there is an issue with screen light. I tried my iPhone Flash on back of Macbook Screen on Apple logo and found very blurred Login Page, where I entered password and hit enter. After some time ...

As of OS X Mountain Lion (10.8), there has been a feature called "Power Nap" that allows the Mac to periodically wake from sleep while connected to a power adapter to retrieve emails, calendar updates, iCloud syncing, or to back up to Time Machine. This would be my guess for the reason why your Mac is waking up and running during the night and not an ...

I had the same issue. I got my MacBook to sleep again when I disabled automatic backups with Time Machine.
