    Hey,
    I just woke up and found out that my macbook has been downloading something for like 30 minutes 3 hours ago and battery went down from 100% to 95%, how do I stop that? Powernap is off. Not the first time it happened.

    Disabling Power Nap on Battery should also do it.

    Downloading software updates? Turn it off at Settings->AppStore. Or just turn WiFi off.

    No need to be snippy.

    Did you check power nap was off on battery *and* on AC power?

    I leave my MacBook plugged in overnight. Great time to charge it.

    And they are listening to your phone calls, reading your email, peering through your laptop camera, auditing your taxes in 3.....2.....1.....
