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 ...

No. You'll need to unplug USB devices that wake your Mac prematurely. This is a firmware level task which would require significant training to pull off. Nothing is impossible, but this isn't an easy setting to simply change. Hopefully the vendor has a way to make it more like other USB mice that only wake their host when they are physically moved and ...

This is an often reported problem (with Yosemite) that has been fixed recently. As of OS X 10.10.4, released yesterday, Apple reinstated mDNSResponder to handle DNS processes previously assigned to discoveryd since the debut of OS X 10.10 Yosemite. For more information see: ...

If you run following command in the Terminal app it will show you what keep it from sleeping. pmset -g assertions Then based on the result you can take a action. Here is a example: pid 251(coreaudiod): [0x0000000100000d01] 00:17:27 NoIdleSleepAssertion named: "com.apple.audio.'AppleHDAEngineOutput:1B,0,1,1:0'.noidlesleep" pid 251(coreaudiod): ...

You need to reset your SMC: MacBook: Shut down your Mac, press shift+ctrl+alt first and then press the power button. It should not start. Take a look at the LED from your power cord and it should just change for few seconds. Then, release the shift+ctrl+alt and start your Mac. Mac mini, iMac, Mac Pro: Shut down your Mac, unplug the power chord, wait for ...

After trying to run the scripts suggested by other answers, unloading and reloading both the kext and the bluetooth daemon, my bluetooth still wasn't responding. However, I have discovered that if Yosemite sleeps with VMWare running and bluetooth doesn't work when the OS is woken up, closing VMWare rectifies the issue. It seems that the drivers in VMWare ...

here is a solution, with mouse movements (not keyboard shortcuts). FOR THE FIRST PART Go to user & groups Enable fast switching. Whenever you need to activate the login screen click login screen on top right. It will need the login password to open again. (If you still need to define keyboard shortcut, please look this link, though I didn't ...

There are a number of posts (here and here) on superuser.sx. To lock the screen (actually invoking the "Login Window…" action from the User menu, and a direct analog to the Win+L shortcut in Windows): /System/Library/CoreServices/Menu\ Extras/User.menu/Contents/Resources/CGSession -suspend To sleep the display (I use this all the time as part of my last ...

I've just had a similar issue with all open tabs jointly consuming 100% of the CPU, no matter how many or few I had open. Other processes were barely getting a look in, and Safari was still completely unusable. Closing & opening pages, relaunches and restarts didn't help. I ran AdwareMedic. It found and facilitated removal of some scummy malware that ...

The Mac registers with a Bonjour Sleep Proxy when it goes to sleep. The Bonjour Sleep Proxy (BSP) can be an AppleTV, Apple router, or built into the ethernet stacks of recent Macs. The BSP will pretend to be the Mac and continue to advertise services. If another machine tries to connect to one of those advertised services, the BSP will send the magic packet ...

My understanding from the Debian wiki: Quote: I found that I didn't want any of the Wake On LAN settings except Wake on "Magic Packet" (g). I only wanted my machine to turn on when I specifically told it to, not on unicast messages (u), broadcast messages (b) or multicast messages (m). Instead of Wake on "Magic Packet" (g), you would want Wake on ...

The best idea is to pay for (or set up) server side junk mail filtering. That allows all the clients to only spend time downloading non-junk. Have a look at Mail Route (10 percent off link from the podcast where I heard about it sponsoring most recently) - http://mailroute.net/thetalkshow.html You probably will spend more on the service than the cost to ...

I only address uninstalling Jack Audio. You can uninstall Jack by looking here: http://www.jackosx.com/Documentation.pdf Uninstalling Jack OS X To uninstall Jack OS X, double click the “Uninstall JackOSX” file located in the Jack folder, in your main Applications folder. A Terminal window will be displayed, and it will prompt you for your Mac’s ...

I think my problems are solved. I opened my cover on the MBP and saw 2 screws that were loose. They were supposed to hold the WIFI antenna. I tightened them up and now it seems to work... Strange that they opened themselves?

This seems not to be possible. I solved the situation now with the help of my dell external displyay. The USB-Hub there can be configured to shut down as soon as the display ist switched off. So the second display and the active speakers are connected to the power plug that can be switched off/on by USB power. This will allow with the klick of one button to ...

That preference slider seems to be missing in Energy Saver for some Mac portables, and newer Mac portables seem to combine both settings if "Power Nap" is enabled: http://www.extensions.in.th/amitiae/2014/prefs/energy.html http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/no-computer-sleep-setting-in-energy-saver-for-nmp.1692340/

You should be able to use Ctrl + Shift + Eject, this puts the mac to sleep. On a Macbook you need to use Ctrl + Shift + Power since there is no eject button (unless you are using an external keyboard).

I just ran into this new addition -- the caffeinate command is built into OS X now, no app needed. http://osxdaily.com/2014/06/16/caffeinate-prevent-sleep-while-command-active-mac-os-x/

Yes with time you can do like Ender says, or simply do it directly by clicking on the Apple on the top-left corner and click Suspend Activity (Go in sleeping mode)

You can find these options in System Preferences > Energy Saver. Drag the "Computer Sleep:" slider to the left. Note that for newer Apple portables, Yosemite combines the sleep and display sleep option: http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/2013-mba-no-computer-sleep-setting-wtf-heres-why.1598329/

Thanks to Tyilo from the comments on the accepted answer, I have modified his script to install sleepwatcher and append to the script some code that will not only unload the Bluetooth driver (com.apple.iokit.BroadcomBluetoothHostControllerUSBTransport), but also restart blued, Apple's Bluetooth daemon. The script can be found here: ...

There's a lot going on here. You've got a daemon called SleepWatcher 2.2 which is being kept alive by launchd. It supposedly runs your /etc/wakeup.rc script on computer wake. Your script then calls the program imagesnap. Your script is being executed twice. I'd first look at launchctl list and then ps to see if SleepWatcher is running two instances. If ...
