    Is it normal for mavericks that when you go to sleep it takes 10-15 seconds?

    When I was on snow leopard when I would put the mac pro to sleep it would go to sleep within 2 seconds. But every since getting mavericks when I click on sleep, the monitor will go to sleep like normal, but it takes the HD 15-20 seconds to go to sleep Is this normal?

    Do you use an HDD or SSD? It makes an huge difference.

    It takes like 2 seconds to wake up on my macbook air. However, if I leave it on sleep over night, it takes around 8-10 seconds to wake up the next day.

    I have a HDD and I don't mean for it to wake up.

    I mean when I click on sleep, the monitor goes to sleep but the HDD takes much longer to go to sleep where as before it would go to sleep at the same time as the monitor.

    Yeah it's totally normal. I'm on a 2010 MacBook Pro with a hybrid drive from Seagate and it takes about 5-10 seconds for the hybrid drive to stop spinning.

    Ok thanks, its just odd coming from snow leopard when it would only take a few seconds to go to sleep. Just want to make sure my other board isn't going.

    If your Mac writes a sleepimage file, then yes. You can disable this, if you have reliable RAM. In that case OS X does not write the large sleepimage file.

    This Problem has nothing to do with the sleepimage.
    It's a new Bug in 10.9 and hasn't been fixed in 10.9.1.

    So 10.8 brings slow shutdown
    and 10.9 brings slow sleep :mad:
