I have a mbp that takes over 50 seconds to go to sleep. I have a friend whose g4 ibook takes about 3 seconds. i looked into the issue, and saw that my mbp is configured for safe sleep mode. i found this set of command to disable the safe sleep feature, and enable quick sleep: $ sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 $ sudo nvram "use-nvramrc?"=false unfortunately, this does not help at all. i did restart the computer, but it still takes over 50 seconds to go to sleep, and about 10 seconds to wake up. Can anyone please tell me how I can configure my computer to go to quick sleep- within 5 seconds? thanks.
