I have a MacBook Pro early 2013, running OSX mavericks and filevault(encryption) is enabled.
After a (I suspect) update, the locking behavior has been different. When the screen gets locked (manually or automatically) all running programs die. Including but not limited to spotify(while playing music), Time Machine(while in the middle of a backup, getting interrupted), Transmission(while downloading torrents).
It is not suspend-to-disk either, because all programs reinitialize when I unlock the macbook. Some programs do not properly save state, so this is really annoying.
The previous behavior was regular lock screen with a screensaver, suspend to RAM after a certain time has passed. Which worked fine for me. I do realize that Apple probably tries to prevent DMA attacks this way, but for me it is really an overkill at the cost of usability. The main reason for enabling filevault is burglary. burglars do not have the expertise to extract the encryption key from RAM anyway.
Is there a way to re-enable the old behavior(suspend-to-ram) without disabling filevault?
ps: I am assuming this new behavior is because of filevault, I have not been able to test this, because disabling filevault is not an option for me.
