    I've been very happy with my new MBA so far, its a very snappy and lightweight device. However, as of a few minutes ago, my MBA is taking quite long to wake up from sleep. I have no idea what I did, just a while ago it was taking less than a second. Any ideas?

    I've rebooted countless times, done a SMC reset - no dice.

    Good thing I didn't hesitate when I bought a 2012 MBA in October.

    Assuming you haven't installed any software or made any other system changes that may have caused this, it is hard to guess what could have happened.

    You may want to experiment messing around with changing the sleep/hibernation mode.

    Mine runs like a dream - best laptop I've ever owned! Lightweight, fast, hell it evens runs SWTOR at medium settings no problem.

    The thing is fantastic.

    Awesome! Great to hear. I disabled my hibernation mode to avoid having an 8GB file being created and chewing up valuable SSD space. Check that article I linked to even if just for the entertainment value.

    About 3rd party apps, I think I may know what caused the problem. I installed both Caffeine and NoSleep, both which probably messed with my sleep settings. I'm uninstalling NoSleep now.

    Were you waking it up after the laptop was asleep for more than 3 hours? If so, it likely went into standby mode which can take a few seconds longer to wake up.

    Just the opposite...

    For example, if I were to move rooms, I would close the lid and plop it down somewhere else. When opening the lid again, it would take 6-7 seconds to show the login screen.
