I may just be venting a bad experience but i think others would agree Apple "geniuses" are just glorified sales people. They have a couple basic things to check for but it always comes down to a stupid problem or a complete rebuild. Basically a keyboard spill on my macbook pro is causing the hardware to malfunction in a way that keeps it from going into sleep mode. 2 Geniuses and a authorized repair shop later and all agree I need a complete rebuild not covered under warranty, 1200 dollars. Kept digging around online and discovered there are actually 5 different sleep modes and that they can be activated with terminal. I'm now using "hibernation" mode which works fine and I'm preferring anyways because while in this sleep mode it uses zero battery. None of those guys even came close to actually trying to solve my problem. I've been using apple for 10 years now and never needed tech support which I love, but I got to say this was an awful experience all along the way. Applecare is not worth it.
