    Hello!
    I heard that if you have a micro sd card in the macbook, once it goes to sleep and comes back awake, It won't detect the sd card anymore and to solve the situation you need to reboot the system... I don't wanna have to reboot every time this problem happens... Have apple solved the situation or is there a fix for it?

    Thanks in advance!

    PS: In this thread they talked about that problem in the end: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1569779

    That thread that you linked is more than 2 years old.
    Maybe some one else will report if that is still a problem.
    But, you didn't say - Did you test it yourself? It may be an issue that only affects a few users (if it still affects anyone)

    I can test it, but how? How can I know if my macbook were in deep sleep mode with the sd card inserted? There is an app for that or what?

    Are you having problems with an SD card now?

    I can't tell you if you have deep sleep enabled (and you would know if you have software that enables that mode). It's not a default power setting.

    But, I would simply insert an mSD card, make sure that the card is mounted.
    Put your MBP to sleep.
    Leave it for at least 30 minutes - maybe overnight.
    Wake your MBPro, then check that you can access the SD card.

    If it works (you can access the card), then nothing to worry about.

    It's not a default? It should come by default, when I leave the macbook sleeping for a long period of time... How do I enable it then? So I can try that with the sd card?

    All YOU have now is a story that is more than two years old, which may or may not be valid now.

    I guess you are talking about the lowest power mode that Apple calls standby.

    And, I ** apologize **, it's a mode that I personally haven't kept up with.
    And, I always have external storage connected, so standby is not available on my Mac.

    Here's an Apple support article describing standby mode.
    https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202824
    You have to disconnect any external connections, which would include the SD card slot - Your MBPro will sleep, but it won't enter the low power standby mode with an SD card inserted.

    I think it would be perfectly testable. You can eject the SD card. Put your MBPro to sleep for long enough to go into standby (2 or 3 hours - or overnight). Wake up your MBPro. Insert SD card. Does it mount, or not?
    That should answer your question.
