Hey all! So I've searched the forum and found a bunch of sleep issues/resolutions, but haven't come across the same issue I'm experiencing. Basically, my MBP works like a champ with the only issue being that sometimes when I disconnect the magsafe connector, the machine will go to sleep about 15-20 seconds later. Even if I'm actively using it. It's not every time though. :confused: Any thoughts? All other sleep/wake functions are normal. Thanks!

Check your Energy Saver settings in System Preferences. You may have it set to sleep sooner on battery than when on power adapter.

I'm a rolling stone.
Haha, was just a suggestion.

Was thinking about it for a while, can't tell anything else, you said it happens sometimes, not always, otherwise I would have suggested GGJStudio's solution but then it wouldn't have this behaviour since the minimum is 1 minute I think and it would always sleep.

Probably a bug in the OS, might get solved in an update.

Because it's tired? :D

Seriously, if everything is up to date, then the old re-install OS from scratch thing.
