    I would like to know if Powernap does still work if i have Filevault 2 enabled?
    I think when my drive is encrypted, then it should not be possible to update data during sleep mode.

    If I set it to not log out when in sleep mode, then yes, but not if it's set to log out directly when going to sleep. Is this correct?
    Thank you!

    If you do not logout and just let it sleep or close the lid, Powernap will still work. But if you logout it will not work whether it is asleep or not.

    It works like this with Filevault or not.
