Hi Friends

So im using macbook air latest model.. my battery is draining unnecessarily when my macbook goes in to a sleep mode. I do understand that when it's in "Safe Sleep mode" USB ports will be powered up.. so i thought of changing this sleep mode. my current config :

pmset -g | grep hibernatemode
hibernatemode 3

I can run this command : sudo pmset -a hibernatemode X and change this mode to hibernate mode.. but I just wanted to know if which setting i should use.

This is what i want to do. When i close the lid/click apple logo > sleep option I want my macbook to go in to sleep/safe sleep mode for 60 minutes, and then after that, go into hibernation mode. In other words, lets say if i close the lid of my mac i will have 60 minutes to quickly resume my work because the mac will be in sleep mode. but lets say if im done for the day i want my macbook to go into hibernation mode so that it wont power up USB ports ect I want that to happen after a 60min delay. I was reading something about "standbydelay" parameter but i dont see that in my system.

This is the guide im following : Understanding and choosing between Mac sleep, standby or hibernate

pmset -g | grep standbydelay
standbydelaylow 10800
standbydelayhigh 86400

As you can see i have these 2 only. Any idea how to achieve this? 60min standby time in sleep mode, after that hibernation mode.

Thanks in advance.

Can you post the complete result of pmset -g custom?

You can find a lot more information on the manual page of pmset: man pmset

Are you running macOS Catalina 10.15.2? Because I’m having the same problem - MacBook Pro will not go into Standby/Safe Sleep mode. Changing pmset values does not fix the problem unfortunately.
No problems with Mojave.

Yes, I am running Catalina 10.15.2. I had this same issue with Mojave to be honest.. its not an issue, but a config change.
