    Calendar notifications disappear due to sleep

    This is new. My Calendar alerts are gone whenever I wake the Mac from sleep. This is pretty bad for me since I often set Calendar (all day) alerts for my most important to-dos of the day as well as appointments. Has anyone seen that behaviour before? Settings are set to alerts and I'm on 12.5.1.

    2019 16 inch MBP battery drain in 2 days during sleep

    I'm not sure what the exact day is when the battery died but I closed the lid on my computer for like a day I'm estimating and I still have mostly full charge. But then I leave the lid closed for 2-3 days and when I wake the computer, the battery is completely empty. It's drained to the point...

    Shutdown, or not?

    Seen a few conversations about this. Alas, I have my own question. If traveling back and forth to work, from home with a MacBook, running the latest OS, is it worth it to shutdown the MacBook, or just use Sleep mode? PS: Windows user, slowly moving over to macOS. Hence, the question.

    2015 15 Mac never wakes from safe sleep when battery is drained

    This might be a strange question but here goes. When I use my Mac, it sometimes just cuts power when the battery is at high percentages like 90 percent. I've been able to solve this by calibrating the battery but now I have a new issue. When I get the battery to zero and plug in the charger, my...

    SLEEP APS - any show sleep total throughout the night?

    Do any sleep tracking apps allow you to see how much sleep you’ve gotten in the middle of the night when you wake up? It seems the Apple sleep tracking in the health app only shows a total once you’ve ended the sleep session. If I wake up at 5am I’d love to see how much sleep I’ve actually...

    Resolved Monterey 12.3.1 - return from sleep not working by pressing any key

    After updating Macbook Pro 16" 2019 to Monterey 12.3.1, return from sleep stopped working by pressing any key. Now it resumes only by pressing the Touch ID button. I'm not complaining about this behavior, but I'm curious if it's just my machine or it's a change coming with 12.3.1:) Thanks!

    Other Have you fallen asleep on TOP of your iPhone, or put it under your pillow when you sleep?

    I have an iPhone 13, this crossed my mind recently. I have a habit of falling asleep with the phone in my hands, while I'm watching something or grab it to turn the alarm off, and invariably I wake up with it under me (usually on my side). Although I'm light, I wonder if the pressure of the...
