I have MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2014) and OS: 10.13.6

My pmset outputs:

$ pmset -g
System-wide power settings:
Currently in use:
 standbydelay         10800
 standby              1
 womp                 1
 halfdim              1
 hibernatefile        /var/vm/sleepimage
 powernap             1
 gpuswitch            2
 networkoversleep     0
 disksleep            0
 sleep                0 (sleep prevented by coreaudiod, Google Chrome)
 autopoweroffdelay    28800
 hibernatemode        3
 autopoweroff         1
 ttyskeepawake        1
 displaysleep         20
 acwake               0
 lidwake              0

You can see that I have set the disksleep to 0 somehow (not sure when I did that), will my disk go to sleep when I close the lid?

    If this Mac (you don't specify which model) has an SSD, the disksleep command is meaningless as it applies to HDDs. – IconDaemon Nov 27 '18 at 14:02
  • @IconDaemon thanks a lot for the reply. I have MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2014) and OS: 10.13.6. – sgon00 Nov 27 '18 at 14:08
  • This MBP came equipped with a 128, 256, 515 GB or 1 TB SSD, so disksleep has no effect. – IconDaemon Nov 27 '18 at 14:59
  • @IconDaemon thanks a lot for the reply. so do you mean that ssd does not need to sleep? Even if I travel with a running ssd, there is no problem at all? Only the system needs to be in a sleep mode, ssd does not need to sleep? thanks. – sgon00 Nov 28 '18 at 4:54
  • I would assume the SSD is powered down while in sleep. An energized SSD does generate some heat, after all. – IconDaemon Nov 28 '18 at 11:27
