    So one day I activated deep sleep from this widget like I always do when I want to keep my 100% charge and i'm traveling with my macbook and keep my stuff saved.

    It didn't work. So I kept clicking. clicking. clicking. Nothing.

    So I slept my mac, and woke it again and it worked.

    However when I went to wake it, I just got a grey screen. I held down the power button to cold boot, and when I rebooted it booted from the RAM file like it would normally when waking from deep sleep.

    But now every-time I close the laptop it goes into deep sleep. Very frustrating!

    Sorry to bump, but nobody has an answer?

    Would resetting the SMC fix this?

    Nope.

    I just followed the instructions in the article... and terminal says its on mode 3. Basically goes into sleep mode, but also saves contents to HD just incase of powerfailure. This is what I want. However, it doesn't boot from RAM...it always boots from HD grrr...

    That happened to me before with a white Macbook. I think it ended up being a faulty logic board. The battery also was not charging.
