    i ahve a 2012 retina macbook 15".

    ever since i updated to mavricks i thoguht the sleep mode went quicker

    i.e. display immediately shuts off.

    then i realized one quiet morning when i hit sleep the fans were still going...and going...and going for like half a minute before they shut off. the display instantly shut off but obviously if the fans are running th computer hasnt actualyl went to sleep yet.

    is this normal?

    I'm having the same issues with my first-gen Unibody 15". Takes about 60 seconds to sleep after closing lid; I have no idea what it is, haven't reviewed logs yet etc.

    Doesn't seem to be a huge issue as it is reliably sleeping, just taking longer to do so.

    No such issues with my 13" rMBP. It sleeps faster and shuts down way quicker than it did under ML.

    I have the same problem here with MBP 15" mid 2012 non retina

    Does any one knows how to solve this problem.

    Before the upgrade to Mavericks I was using Mountain Lion and when closing the lid it was taking 20 seconds to sleep. But now taking over 1 minute.

    It's definitely normal. Mavericks is heavily compressing the RAM before it saves it to permanent storage.

    I'm having the same issue with a late-2013 13" rMBP. I usually close the lid rather than :apple: --> Sleep, so I'm not sure if that makes any difference. Hope this is resolved with 10.9.1!

    If this is normal. Why did Mountain lion only took only 20 seconds to fall asleep when closing the lid?

    There must be something wrong with this for sure.
