    I was wondering if anyone had similar problems with their MacBook Pro Retinas, I have the 2.3Ghz config. Since using it for two months, I have gotten a random screen shutoff three times. I had to do a hard reset in every case. Also when waking up from sleep, the keyboard and mouse would not respond for about 20-30 seconds and finally it will start working. Yes I did install the SMC update, anyone know what's going on here? :confused:

    It's actually because of the SMC update that your rMBP does that. It was actually completely powered off and was reloading the data into memory. This sleep mode was enabled in the SMC update. More information and disabling instructions

    ^^^ don't rely on a 6-year old article to provide you with any useful instructions on how to do anything with today's Mac OS. Seriously playing with fire given the number of OS updates since 2006...
