I have a MacBookAir3,2 (late 2010) running 10.9.3.
I want to be able to force the machine to immediately go into "hibernation" mode, but it seems impossible.
The usual answer that I have seen is
sudo pmset -a destroyfvkeyonstandby 1 hibernatemode 25 but when I sleep/wake my Mac with those settings, I am not asked for my FileVault password.
- Power Nap is disabled for Battery and A/C power
- Fast User Switching is disabled
- Preferences » Security & Privacy » General » Require Password is set to “immediately”
I have run
sudo pmset -a destroyfvkeyonstandby 1 hibernatemode 25 autopoweroff 1 autopoweroffdelay 14400 standby 1 but note that 'autopoweroff' and 'autopoweroffdelay' are both absent from my

Putting the computer to sleep, either by closing the lid or
sudo shutdown -s now and then waking it back up within a minutes or two does not require me to enter my FileVault password, just my regular account password.
Is there a way for me to force the Mac to hibernate?
