I'm on Macmini6,2 with current firmware and 10.8.4. When I send it to sleep it starts its on and off fading status LED thing to indicate it is now asleep.

When I come back a few hours later, it is dark, but the computer is still asleep and enters wake mode when I touch any key.

What's wrong there? Isn't the indicator LED supposed to blink all the time?


I am not sure if it is only with the most recent model, but apparently by default it is set to go into deep sleep after a few hours, and this turns the power light off entirely.

This thread on AVForums provides a command that should disable deep sleep, if that is what you want.

pmset -g
sudo pmset -a autopoweroff 0

After entering this it will prompt you for your password.
