After rMBP has slept for awhile, it lags for a few seconds after I wake it.. Normal?

    This isn't really a major problem, but I'm just wondering if it's normal? It only happens when my rMBP has been asleep for a little while. The cursor is really choppy and it runs slow for like 5 seconds. It always fixes itself though. Is this normal?

    I believe that both the Air and the RMBP go into a "deep sleep" mode after being in sleep mode for a while. Rather than keeping information in memory, it stores it all to the SSD and then goes into a super low power mode.

    That big of lag is most likely while your MBP is pulling the data back off the SSD and into RAM when you wake it up.

    Edit: Here's Apple's article on the subject with some more information:
