    Hello,

    like the title says, my machine is pretty slow to wake up from sleep (when I open the lid). I have a MacBook Pro 2.53 i5 128 SSD and I use "SmartSleep" prefpane (set up not to write anything on SSD unless low on battery, so all info is just stored in RAM).

    All was working well up until few weeks back when I noticed that my machine is taking 3-6 seconds to wake up. I have usually Mail and Adium app open, so waking up should be instantaneous (like it used to be).
    This is not my first MacBook Pro, so from experience I know that this should be faster (at least on SSD).



    Thanks in advance,
    Milan

    I love how you're being sarcastic even tho it's only supposed to be around 2 seconds.

    2 seconds vs 3-6 seconds...really?

    This is what we're talking about?

    Well as soon as we solve this dilemma, we can move on to world hunger and terrorism.

    6 seconds just for your computer to wake up? And if you wanna talk about problems as big as that then you're on the wrong site.

    For the computer just to wake up obviously. This isn't hard to understand. If you didn't want to help then you shouldn't of even posted.

    "shouldn't of posted"? Is that kinda like "shouldn't HAVE posted"?

    This isn't that big of a deal. Your computer crashing is a big deal. A virus is a big deal. Having to wait SIX ENTIRE SECONDS is not a big deal.

    Wow, sorry, MY BAD. Have posted.
    So you think that you should only make a topic if you're having a HUGE problem? For a brand new computer, 6 seconds is a long time to simply wake up from sleep. Time yours, I'm sure it isn't nearly as long.

    So you wouldn't care if your fancy brand new i7 MBP took 6 seconds to simply wake up?

    What's with everyone's attitude here? My MBP wakes up in 1-2 seconds. In the time it takes to move my hand back form the lid and down to the keyboard again it's up and running. I'd be very annoyed if this took 10 seconds instead, there definitely is a problem somewhere. I'd check the above mentioned things, pending HD failure or a CD in the drive bay. You can also check the system logs, it saves quite a bit of information about what it's doing when it goes into sleep mode and wakes up again. Maybe that can give you a clue.

    Thanks for the info. I don't have a CD in the superdrive, so I'll check the logs and see what I can come up with.

    I have just moved to new MBP i5 and I have also noticed this issue. It doesn't bother me much except the thoughts that something may be wrong with software. I have just swapped hdd. But I am courious what may be causing it. Previously I didn't notice the time when system did wake from sleep.

    My 2.53 Core 2 Duo is now taking 30 seconds to wake up, even without any apps running. I've deleted Norton anit virus, rebooted the macbook pro, run disk utilities, but no improvements.

    Arrrrgh!!!

    I've done this like three separate times. I set my mac on top of another, and the magnets from the bottom one won't allow the top one to wake up. I swear, I've wasted at least 30 minutes of my life fighting with this.

    I was having this problem on my brand new 2011 13" MBA i7/256/4 w/Lion 10.7.1.

    Someone on another forum suggested resetting PRAM, so I tried it and all seems fine now. Wakes up instantly even after lid close sleep for a long period of time. :D

    Might be worth a try for anyone still having this problem on an MBA or MBP.

    MBP slow to wake

    I was having a similar issue on my 17" Mid 2010 MBP running 10.6.8. It would wake the screen but not be responsive for around 30 sec or allow me to launch apps for about 30 seconds. I traced it down to an obscure airport issue. So see if you still have sleep lag if you turn off airport.
