Diablo 3 low fps on rMBP, resetting SMC

Im having a returning problem with low fps (~13) in D3 on my retina macbook pro. After searching around I found that resetting the SMC could solve the problem, and it did...for a while at least. But after some time the problem is back and I have to reset the SMC again to solve it.

I think it is triggered when i open D3 after the mbp has been in sleep mode. If I refrain from sleeping the mbp the problem doesn't seem to return.

Anyone having the same issues and/or knows how to fix it?

There was a similar thread where somebody was asking about slowdown in Skyrim FPS. The solution that worked in that case was resetting the PRAM in addition to the SMC. I'll quote the original solution written by Moriarty:

Worked for me when I had framerate issues in every game I had. If the issue is only with Skyrim and other games perform as they should then it's probably something else.
