comment Mountain Lion aggressively hibernates
I am plugged in. I think PowerNap is not applicable, per support.apple.com/kb/ht5394 it is only on retina MacBook Pros (and Airs).

It's a relatively new MacBook (2 months, more or less). The battery has 20 cycles, and I'm getting the behavior when it is plugged in. So battery seems to be unlikely to be the culprit.

womp is 1, darkwake is not shown. I do have the SSD option. I'm not sure about PowerNap.

comment Mountain Lion aggressively hibernates
But right now, standby is 0 so I should never be entering standby mode. I think it's doing "auto power off", but I don't understand why. And I don't know what is the downside of changing "autopoweroff" to 0, which might stop that behavior.

2. I don't want it to hibernate unless (1) I explicitly tell it to or (2) the battery is about to be exhausted. In other words, I want the old behavior back.

1. I want to understand what is actually happening and how to control it.
