Hey, I have retina base model. When I wake up from sleep after few hours of sleep the screen opens right away but it takes 3-5 seconds until I can see the mouse pointer and use it using the trackpad. In Lion I remember I could use the trackpad instantly, however if I'm not mistaken after I opened up the lid I had to press a button in order to wake up the machine and it took 2 seconds until the screen was on(maybe it's just a trade off). How much time does it take you from wake time until you can move your mouse pointer using the trackpad? Please copy here your comment and also add your hibernation mode number using the following command: pmset -g | grep hibernate Mine is in hibernatemode 3. P.S: I'm already updated with the latest SMC version 2.3f32. I'm running ML after formatting my partition and freshly installing ML. In addition, if I enter sleep mode for not so long, let's say 15 minutes, everything is instant. I closed all apps before entering to sleep, and even did a reboot and immediately enetered sleep mode - no help.
