    Hi!
    I've noticed my macbook pro mid 2012, non-retina, is not hibernating when I stored it on a nice little sleeve.

    I didn't want to worry about turning it off, I just wanted to close the lid and if I didn't open it after 1 hour, it should hibernate to save power.

    Here's my pmset:

    What's going on? What am I doing wrong?

    Is it because I set my SSD to never sleep, on power management?

    As far as I know on my 2012 w/Western Digital Scorpio Black HDD, hibernate will kick in after 3 hours. Only learned of that when I made a long travel and my MBP took ~3 minutes to unhibernate :eek:

    Yeah I know. Mine is not doing that. Don't know if it's a wrong pmset or wrong drive setting, as I'm using ssds.

    Never sleep shouldn't prevent hibernate unless you have a program running when you go into sleep mode.

    I use that setting on both battery/plugged-in as I use software which suffer audio clipping if the drive spins down.

    Great, one less variable to work with.

    So DOES ANYONE know what the hell is wrong with my pmset?

    Or maybe if there's a way to completely reset it so I can start from scratch, see if works then?
