    I'm completely new to Mac and have never used Time Machine before, so forgive me if this a silly question. How does the MacBook Pro handle the hourly backup when it's sleeping? Does it wake up every hour to perform the backup or does it skip those backups while it's sleeping and simply perform a backup the next time it's awake?

    That's what I was hoping to hear. Thank you for the info.
