I'm having issues with my MacBook Air 2013 waking from sleep into Dark Wake every minute since I upgraded to Mavericks. Whenever it's been to sleep and goes into standby it keeps waking up. This is what pmset -g log looks like:

And so on throughout the entire night. The console says 2013-10-25 06:41:20,000 kernel[0]: Wake reason: ? for every wake, so I guess my only shot is trying to figure out what DarkWake [CDN] means which there doesn't seem to be any info on. Also, this is while the Mac is on battery and with pmset -g darkwakes 0 (I.e. Power Nap turned off for battery).

  • Have you attempted to reset the SMC or zap the PRAM to see if that helps? Do you have all external devices or other media (DVD/SD card) disconnected when testing (Created InternalPreventSleep "PM configd - Wait for device enumeration")? "InternalPreventSleep" may be an assertion that is preventing sleep? – Eddie Kelley Oct 25 '13 at 21:24
  • Did both of those, no dice. Nope, no external devices connected. – Rick Oct 26 '13 at 15:26
  • Rick, do you happen to be running a virtual machine of any kind in the background? I'm seeing the same issue as you and wondering whether that could be a culprit... – benilov Oct 31 '13 at 11:15
  • Nope, I hade no VMs. – Rick Nov 4 '13 at 10:17
  • Is System Preferences / Energy Saver / Wake for network access checked? Maybe something pings your machine regularly or something similar is happening? – user188421 Feb 2 '14 at 13:16

My workaround was to disable sleep using sudo pmset -b standby 0. Not really a fix but a temporary workaround until I revisit the issue.

  • I solved similar issue with setting MBP to always hibernate. – krtek Dec 19 '15 at 19:00

I am having the same issue with my Macbook Air 2013 since upgrading to Mavericks

SMC and PRAM reset did not solve the problem.

After 3 hours sleeping on battery, Mac tries to change from sleep to DeepSleep (hibernate) mode. Then, constantly waking itself back up each minute afterwards until the battery drains to <1%.

It has to be a bug on Apple side.

  • My workaround was to disable sleep using sudo pmset -b standby 0. I thought it might be related to Better Touch Tool since it's gotten a bunch of "Mavericks compatibility" updates but I haven't tried re-enabling hibernate since those, the battery life is still great even without that. – Rick Oct 31 '13 at 10:10
  • @Rick Can you post this as an answer? – nohillside Nov 3 '13 at 13:24
  • Sure, but it's not really an answer as much as a temporary workaround. – Rick Nov 3 '13 at 17:00
