    Hey anyone else having a problem when they open there new Air from clam shell sleep and it takes about 5-10 secs for you to be able to move the cursor or the time to change. Its like frozen for 5-10secs before I can use it! Super annoying....anyone else have this? Or anyone know how to fix this....


    Thanks!

    If the lid has been closed for more than an hour, it goes into deep sleep and taxes a few seconds longer to start up. That's how it can stay in standby mode for 30 days.

    Makes sense. But its not always after an hour in sleep that it freezes. If its been like 15 mins....it still freezes just not as long. Maybe 3 -4 secs before I can move mouse cursor. I thought with the new Air you can open and use immediately because of the flash memory?!

    It's going into Hibernate Mode which I also find quite annoying.

    You can disable and/or check the Hibernate mode with the following commands:


    Paste this in a Terminal window:

    To change mode:

    sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0

    To check mode:

    pmset -g | grep hibernatemode


    I have mine set to 0 and it wakes instantly now - no wait time at all.

    but then why would you want to do that? it will kill your battery life. I rather wait 5-10 sec extra

    I think the main thing is that normally, a "regular" Mac notebook eventually goes into Deep Sleep when the battery gets below 20% to prevent loss of program information. The Air goes into that mode more quickly, so if you disable it, the battery might completely drain.

    Alright then... I did set hibernate to 0 just to try it out. Standard is 3, so I can set it back to 'normal' any time in the future, right?

    I set hibernate mode at 3 and the deep sleep timer at 10 hours.

    sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 3
    sudo pmset -a standbydelay 36000 (seconds, 60x60x10 for 10 hours)

    So I get the 'normal' delay when waking up and the 'much longer' delay almost never due to the 10 hour timer. Still not instant, but better this way.
