    I think he means the notification in the top right corner.

    For the OP: You haven't posted anything of relevance. Nothing about what hardware you're using, if you're having problems with HS, etc.

    If you have backups, then yes I'd consider it. I did a clean install of Mojave and while the sleep function is broken, it's been rock solid. I found HS very unstable compared to Sierra and to Mojave. Sleep was also broken in HS in my experience too. So for me, Mojave is a substantial improvement. And hey, if you have a backup you can always go back.


    If you don't have backups then you need to stop worrying about OS updates and start worrying about sensible computing practices. :)

    Are you saying your computer does not sleep in Mojave? That's strange. I have no problems with Mojave except for the bluetooth keyboard on startup. It does not recognize the bluetooth keyboard when I first turn the MBP on. Once it starts, then I have no problem with it. This happened on 10.14.0 and is happening again with 10.14.2, but strangely, it got solved with 10.14.1. When I've upgraded to 10.14.2, the problem came back.

    Gotcha. I thought he had an error message of some kind :)

    I have that problem with my iMac as well. It doesn't always recognize the bluetooth keyboard or mouse on startup. If I have my watch on and it uses that to open it will eventually find them or sometimes I can get them to work by turning the devices off and on again. Sometimes I have restart reset PRAM before it will find them again.

    Otherwise, I like Mojave, but I keep hoping that issue will be resolved.

    Edit: Now that I think about it though I do seem to recall it not being an issue with 10.14.1, but also had it return with 10.14.2

    Yeah, it does seem very strange that bluetooth worked without any problems on startup with 10.14.1 only.
    I hope they get that fixed again on the next update.

    It pretends to sleep, but it doesn't properly sleep. With Sierra if I put it into sleep at 6pm and woke it at 8am I'd lose 4% to 5%. With HS that jumped to 15% to 20%. With Mojave (10.14.0) it went to 30%. With 10.14.2 in the three times I've tried it's been around 15%, then around 5%, then around 15%. So it's better, but no, it's not sleeping properly.

    This was a clean install of Mojave.

    Do not upgrade to Mojave if you use non-retina external displays. Mojave removed sub pixel antialiasing. Text looks awful.

    You can enable some antialiasing via terminal and tweak it a little bit. But I believe it is just gray scale antialiasing. It doesn't look anywhere near text on High Sierra. From what I gathered, they remove sub pixel antialiasing entirely.

    Totally wrong. Enable via terminal. Looks perfectly fine.
