    Hello, world!
    I bought my new MBP 13 (1.4/256) 2 weeks ago and faced with a problem.
    Battery draining at sleep mode. I found many information about this problem at forums and already know how to temporary fix it (switch off TCPKEEPALIVE). It helps, but!
    Most of topics was about MBP 2015-2017 and nothing about 2018-2019. Is it still a problem?
    I saw here that people discuss their new MBP but no words about battery.

    Unless you believe that your computer is unique among the millions of machines Apples sells, then it's normal. You should expect your battery level to decrease during sleep because the machine is in a very low power state that maintains memory and makes occasional network connections. Apple calls this network activity "Power Nap", it's a user convenience, and the setting for it is in the Energy Saver preference pane.

    this is not a new problem. and draining for 1-3% per night is ok, but not 30-40%!

    here is my log before:

    23:17:00.574725 +0300 powerd WakeTime: 2.695 sec


    and so all the time. Until I turn off TCPKeepAlive=active function.
    Of course before I goes deep to Terminal functions I tried to on/off all regular settings, resets and install macOS from 0

    My question: is anyone who faced with the same problem with Macbook 2019

    Yes

    “I found many information about this problem at forums and already know how to temporary fix it (switch off TCPKEEPALIVE)”

    And after reinstalling MacOS without any add-ons the problem is still there. This “something” is MacOS

    It’s interesting because most topics is about older models. Not about new )

    It must be a setting of some kind. So if you do a normal reinstall of the OS, the setting will be maintained. Have you done a clean install? I know it's extra work but it might be successful. I would suggest:

    1. Do a full backup of your drive, preferable a clone.
    2. Boot to the recovery partition, erase and reinstall the OS from scratch.
    3. Reinstall all of your apps from scratch so nothing bad is copied from your clone.
    4. Copy your home folder data from the clone to the new installation (do NOT copy your Library folder because your problem might be in there).

    Yes, I did it.
    -Erase ssd and reinstall macOS.

    I did not install anything, I try to catch the problem on clean OS and found the same issue.

    That is strange. I'm afraid I cannot help then. Hopefully someone else will know something. Then too, we ought to get Catalina soon. That might change something.

    Yes, thank you. Apple support told me the same. If they don’t lie they know about problem and ask me to wait for the next big update. ‍♂️

    My Mbp 2013 doesn’t have same issue.

    Do you have any Bluetooth devices or even any connected peripherals that might wake up your computer? I have one Bluetooth device that always wakes up my MBP every few minutes if I don't turn the Bluetooth device off.

    Have you reviewed Activity Monitor for apps that are preventing sleep?

    I have the exact same machine as you have. I don't have your problem but sluggish UI. Whenever I try to resize the browser with Facebook/ YouTube/ gmail/ heavy sites as current tab, the whole resize animation looks choppy as hell. Do you have the same problem?

    That's exactly what Apple told to do so. Tried, but not helping. I am now trying clean install. I have also tried to run heavier task like running multiple emulator at the same time, it does not lag however. What I can confirm is the hardware should be fine.

    agree, the hardware works fine in my case too. and in the case with display artefacts... this is a new apple. =(

    This is my first Mac, and the experience is basically straight up trash. I thought paying such high price product what I get in return is a plug and play for a buttery smooth experience (FYI, this is not the only problem I have in my MacBook). Turns out, worst than lower price windows laptop.

    Sigh...

    well it wouldnt be a problem if a bunch of people were not having the same issues . several threads here and post on reddit seem to collaborate OPs issue as a defect . inb4 "BatteryGate"


    i dont think there is anything that op can do other than return it or wait till apple sends out a software update to patch the battery drain . From the looks of it, this issue is at its infancy stage for apple to take urgency to fix

    Apple's graphics drivers are very bad, it happens on all Retina Macs. It could be that some people just don't notice or pay attention to it.
