The next time you have an issue, run sysdiagnose by pressing the key chord for it or manually from terminal and then open a support ticket with Apple. Much of the diagnostic information in console.app requires one of two things to be useful: Access to Apple's source code and internal support documents Access to a large volume of logs from dozens (or ...

This happens on my iMac running OS X 10.10 So think it's a long standing bug. VLC will keep playing but Google hangouts will drop my call.

For 10.9 and earlier, you could use the application Sleep Monitor. Sleep Monitor is an application I wrote that produces logs and graphs of power on/off, sleep, wake, and battery levels:

As far as I know there is no simple command executed in Terminal to get your desired result. Here is an example for a workaround to get the uptime and the sleep time(s): uptime && pmset -g log|grep 'date'|grep -E ' Wake | Sleep '|grep -v 'Dark Wake' with date: dd/mm/yy (example: 23/07/15) Example (10.9.5 Virtual Machine): machinename:~ user$ ...

You can setup an alarm in the clock app and add a custom label to it. You can also setup a scheduled task in the Reminders app which can be repeated. It can be setup that if you leave a location without checking the box that the reminder is complete you will get a notification. It can also be setup with an alarm for a specific time.

Works for me. Increase as needed. alias myDate='date -v+7S ...

The purpose of the sleepimage is to store the contents of RAM if your Macbook's battery is low and is about to turn off completely (what Apple call "hibernate"). As such it can be equal in size to the amount of RAM in your Mac. So on your Macbook with 16GB of RAM it could be 16GB in size, which would go a long way to explaining how your Mac with 20GB of free ...

Yes, I think keeping the power on here is the key. When I remove the magsafe from my MBP it automatically goes to sleep and turns off the external display. If you really want to keep it from sleeping even when you are not connected to an external power source, you can use InsomniaX or Caffeine.

Yes, its called "closed clamshell" mode. In short, you'll need to attach your MBA to a mouse, a keyboard and power: https://support.apple.com/HT201834

Chaining CRON jobs to power-on like user66309 suggested would be the best solution. But to ensure that the first CRON job actually runs, you need to add an @reboot CRON job to schedule the first wakeorpoweron event. # the first wake or power on event is scheduled just before midnight @reboot pmset repeat wakeorpoweron MTWRFSU 23:59:00 # schedule script1 for ...

I get the same symptoms/failure. The following Terminal command fixes it for me: killall Dock But before you do that, run killall -s Dock to make sure it's only going to directly kill the one "Dock" process. Dock will restart and then mission control is working again - for me anyway. You can verify that the restart happened by looking at the process ID of ...

This may not answer your question directly, but it is a solution.... I am not a fan of doing dev work on my production Mac. I also don't see any value in setting up a MAMP server because it will be a very rare occurrence that you get a hosting provider with MAMP setup. Chances are it will be LAMP and by a very small margin, WAMP. Why not set up a LAMP ...

When this happens, you can gather detailed logs and submit it to Apple for a bug fix or for specific support if you wish. Open Activity Monitor, select Safari and then use the gear to "Run System Diagnostic" on the safari process. This will make a comprehensive system snapshot that you can pick apart if you wish or keep it around until you have 10 ...

I don't think these laptops are quite capable of just 'failing to go to sleep' (it's not a problem I've ever read about before at least). If the lid is closed, it will go into that state, and it'll be safe to put in a bag. One thing that might be worth a try is hunting around the system preferences to see if anything has the ability to take a laptop out of ...
