    I received my new rmbp yesterday and i can't make the power nap to work.
    the option for power nap under energy saver is checked but the mac don't receive mail, don't do time machine backup and i can't locate the mac when he in sleep mode.
    i tried to restart the computer several times and tried to do smc rest but nothing helped.

    what else i can do to make power nap to work?

    Are you plugged in/charging?

    I have a 13" and was able to backup to a hard drive connected to an Airport Extreme.

    Yes, the computer is plugged in but he don't perform any of the power nap task and can't located when sleeping...

    To discover your Mac while in sleep, you will need 2 things:
    1) wake on lan activated in energy saver prefs.
    2) bonjour sleep proxy present on your lan. That is AirPort, TimeCapsule or AppleTV.
