How do I prevent this? I know this is a rampant problem but is there a solution to this yet?
Did you reset the SMC and PRAM?
How do I do that? I forgot. But I don't think this is the solution to my problem.
I rarely remember things like that, so I search for them.
Resetting the SMC
Resetting the PRAM
I don't want to be removing any batteries man.
If you read the article that GSpice linked, you'll see that it says remove the battery "(if it's removable)", and yours, in an rMBP, is not considered user-removable.
Read the rest of the article, particularly where it lists steps to follow "Resetting the SMC on portables with a battery you should not remove on your own"
If you have a unibody you don't have to.
"Note: Portable computers that have a battery you should not remove on your own include MacBook Pro (Early 2009) and later, all models of MacBook Air, and MacBook (Late 2009).
1. Shut down the computer.
2. Plug in the MagSafe power adapter to a power source, connecting it to the Mac if its not already connected.
3. On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time.
4. Release all the keys and the power button at the same time.
5. Press the power button to turn on the computer.
Note: The LED on the MagSafe power adapter may change states or temporarily turn off when you reset the SMC."
Thanks, I followed the direction.
But, how do I know if I did it correctly or not? The MacBook turns on as normal.
If you follow those simple steps, then the reset completes.
Only you can know if the reset helps anything.
It's just a troubleshooting step that you try, and then if you need further help (because your problem continues), you can say you already tried that reset.
It didn't solve it. Anyone know of any more solutions?
Maybe you did not follow the steps correctly? TRY AGAIN!
