I started experiencing this issue (on MacBook Air 13-inch, Mid 2013) after upgrading the SSD (OWC Aura pro). It turns out it was only happening when waking from deep sleep/hibernation, and only when it hibernated on battery. Weird eh? Welcome to the apple/unix command line utility pmset, complete with its own man page. I used pmset to turn off disksleep ...

You can use a Hot Corner to sleep just the display. Go to the Mission Control prefpane and click the 'Hot Corners…' button. Choose a corner and select 'Put Display to sleep'. Now, when you move the mouse-pointer into that corner of your primary display, the display(s) will turn off, leaving the rest of the machine active. I'm not sure if you can assign a ...

I could be missing something in your post, but you should be able to set your Energy Saver preferences so that your display goes to sleep, but your computer doesn't. Since you haven't specified the exact version of macOS you're running I can't give you step by step instructions or include a screenshot, but essentially you need to go to Apple > System ...

shell script wrapper launchd has no built-in method for limiting tasks that missed their start time. Your idea to use a shell script wrapper to evaluate the desired time and actual time is a reasonable approach. For Power Manager, we provided a drift duration for exactly this purpose. Drift lets the user state how long after a missed trigger time the event ...

It does it because the external display isn't waking up fast enough to register with the Mac. Not sure there's any way to fix that unless you can try wake it manually first.

That can happen with non-Apple SSD-sticks, even Apple ones from the wrong year's model can cause those exact symptoms. You can't take one from a 2015 MBP 15 and attempt to use it in a 2013 model, although it will work in the 2014. You'l just have to find the right one for your exact model; Transcend's JetDrive line of SSD-sticks for Macs are well delineated ...

In SystemPreferences->Energy Saver->PowerAdapter: uncheck "put harddisks to sleep when possible" (this is/was meant for HDD not SSD) uncheck "Wake for network access" !! in "schedule..." bottom right side: uncheck the two possibilities. Restart after that to be sure. That should do it.

He's right; clamshell mode will not work unless the Mac-top is on external power. Wake-on-mouse was last seen in Snow Leopard, it's been keyboard-only for some years now. If your Mac-top is one of the New Breed (ie. it has a T2 chip) you can only wake a sleeping clam-book with a directly-connected (can't be in a hub) USB keyboard or a previously-paired ...

Considering it is an eleven year old machine, I can quite safely say (from three decades as a hardware tech) that either the power supply is starting to play up, or one of the voltage-regulator blocks that keep its Xeon(s) well fed are starting to get constipated with age. Either scenariou is equally plausble. When was the last time the ol' cheesegrater had ...

If, like me, you have that problem, you might want to check that googleapis.com and other google domains aren't blocked by a firewall (if you are using little snitch, double check that accountsd can access google apis. Once I allowed accountsd outgoing internet access to googleapis.com, as shown in the attached screenshot, the mac no longer complained when ...

Ive been struggling with this for two days and I found the resolution for 10.13.6 You will find this problem ONLY happens when your MacBook Pro is plugged in and it relates to log out after x amount of time. My Fix: Go to System Preferences / Security & Privacy / Advanced... then turn OFF Log out after x minutes of inactivity. Fixed.

According to Apple this is expected behavior on the newest SSD MacBook Pros (mine is an all SSD 2Tb 2018 model, 2.9 GHz Intel Core i9), so don't fight it. By according to Apple I mean during an Apple Care call I had with them where they eventually put a Senior Tech on the line who explained all this and the below to me. The only "behavior" you may change ...

There is a known issue with the Macbook Pro Mid 2015 waking from sleep. There isn't a single solution, but there is an Apple article about it. The short version is to disable power nap on the "On Battery" and "Plugged in" power save settings in System Preferences.
