    Hello everyone,
    got a new mbp- but I cant seem to get it to sleep unless I go and select the sleep option- I want the computer after a period of inactivity to go to sleep on its own, any help?

    Also when I turn the computer on it doesnt make that typical noise I've heard on MBP but rather a quick buip noise.... Is that normal or sign for trouble to come

    Im just not too familiar and I think its best to ask people with more knowledge on the subject
    I'd appreciate it
    thanks again :)

    I assume you have gone into the Energy Saver settings to fiddle with things and still are having issues?

    the noise you hear when you startup is the optical drive checking for a disc on startup. to hear you startup "DUNG!" make sure you havent muted your speakers before you shut down.

    the macbook not sleeping after a certain amount of time isnt an issue! just check out the energy saver in system preferences. i have my MBP to never sleep while on the power adapter and sleep after 10 min when running on battery.
