    New 21" iMac Retina: Update:
    I received my first computer but the monitor was unevenly lite and blotchy and had a slight tint .. I was not happy.
    I ordered a second one which arrived in a damaged box but had a better monitor but has an issue waking up using the mouse or keyboard .. I mean it will not if left for too long .. And so I wonder how bad an issue that might be ??

    System Preferences -> Bluetooth -> Advanced

    Allow Bluetooth devices to wake this computer

    Thank you for the link .. I am not sure how zapping the parameters of the memory would help especially given that it has never used any other type of keyboard .. I am especially concerned because it is a new computer and I wonder if I should return it .. Thank you.

    One of them controls power management, so sometimes can do the trick!
