    Hi everyone, I have a little question:

    When I sleep my MacBook Pro, does it matter if no apps are running or a bunch of them are opened? Will my battery drain faster the more apps I leave opened?

    Thanks,
    Guido

    It doesn't matter, as during sleep only the RAM is powered, thus if the RAM is filled to 75% or 25%, it takes the same amount of power.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I'm glad it doesn't drain faster :)
    Have a nice day.
