I got my 2.7 16gb 512 mbpr not to long ago, and everything seemed fine but recently I found that sleeping the computer takes more than a few seconds, than opening it up it will take a while to power up the screen.

A shut down will take anywhere from 2 secs to 20 seconds, mostly 20 seconds.
power up usually is quick but I also do automatic login as suggested on the net.

Now, I did think it was software related so I went ahead and did a erase and install..twice. While fixing permissions and reseting pram and SMC.

Yet, it still happens on a bare bone Mountain lion with nothing installed.
(I also had graphic tearing)

If anyone else is experiencing these problems post in this thread, I think this is a more wide spread problem and we could probably find a solution in one thread.

Normal. It's not instant and it does take a few seconds.

A shut down will take anywhere from 2 secs to 20 seconds, mostly 20 seconds.

Power up for me is around 5-10 seconds. Shutdown can be anywhere from 2-20 for me. This is a Mountain Lion issue as Snow Leopard took only seconds to shut down.

For waking up from sleep, check your hibernate mode. I set mine to 0, but your mileage may vary.

To check what yours is:

pmset -g | grep hibernatemode

To change to hibernatemode 0:

sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0

But be sure to read up on the different modes first.

Sometimes when I log into my account, the entire screen becomes black and I have to force shutdown my rMBP.

Can you explain what hibernate mode does? Also, can anybody confirm that setting it to zero improves the problem?

Hibernatemode basically just changes how your mac sleeps.

Depending on the mode, it keeps RAM on (0), saves the contents of RAM to HDD in case of power failure (I think that's 1), or saves contents and keeps RAM on (3).

0 is the fastest, followed by 3 then 1.

Update: Called Applecare and told them what was going one, long story short. I will be getting a replacement unit, I will have to ship out my Retina and they will expedite me the new one.

Solution: Call Apple care get your Retina swapped if problem persist.:(

I guarantee you this problem is not hardware related. I would never go through a time intensive replacement in the moot hope that it would fix the issue. If you're unlucky you get a crappy LG display. Just my two cents.

I am having issues when waking my rMBP from ‘Sleep’ , The screen powers on instantly (like it should) however I cannot move the cursor or type in my PW for a few seconds after, like a lag if you will.

Anyone else have that issue?

That def. dose not look normal! Glad to hear that Applecare has you covered! However, I noticed you had some sort of decal/protector on it... would Applecare cover that as well? Or are you going to have to buy it again because that would suck if you did.

Yeah, I decided to contact bestskinever and they are sending me a complementary skin because of the situation.. Awesome =]

I had a lg screen and I was happy with it but this issue I think was hardware because shortly after I had a couple kernel panics and slow all around.

Replacement unit will be here before sept 4th. So no biggie.

I also think it might be software but apple care suggested replacing it .

What is your state of your new Retina MBP now?

I'm a Taiwan user . I had a same problem.


This really is a very annoying problem.....
