Takes a long time to wake from full sleep

Does anyone else's MBA take a long time to wake from full sleep? As in... when it goes into that deep-sleep mode, opening the lid and being able to punch in the password takes anywhere from 4-6 seconds long. I feel this is slower than even before. I'm on the latest ML on a 2011 Air.


What gives? I thought the advantage of having SDDs was that it wakes super fast. My partner's MBP 15" (2011) wakes faster from full sleep I noticed.


Anyone else?

The MPB doesn't drop down into the same "full sleep." The advantage of the MacBook Air is that it will keep a charge up to 30 days in deep sleep. The MacBook Pro will lose about 10-20% battery each day. If you keep the MacBook Air plugged in, or insert something into the USB port, it won't drop down into deep sleep and you should have the near instantaneous wakes.

Seems to me to be an unfortunate side effect of 10.8.2. I downgraded to Lion and this extra lag isn't apparent. I too have a 2011 MBA.

Odd. I recall on my 2011 in Lion that wake from deep sleep took about 6-7 seconds and even wake from normal sleep took about 3 seconds. I had heard that Mountain Lion made it quicker. I have a 2012 now so I can't test it. On the 2012s, regular wake is nearly instantaneous, and wake from deep sleep takes about 3-4 seconds on average.

I'd love 4-6 seconds. I generally get 6-8 seconds before the mouse even appears, and then another ~5 seconds after that before I can begin typing in my password.

Wish this wasn't the case. It's kind of false advertising on their website when they say "instant wake".

2012 MBA 13" running 10.8.2. Definitely takes about ~5 seconds before the mouse cursor becomes active.
