    I have a late 2010 11-inch MBA running 10.9.3. It used to wake up from sleep immediately after opening the lid. But starting very recently, often when I open the lid the screen remains black. To wake the screen I also have to press the space bar. This happens (almost) always if the computer has not been used for several hours. If it was asleep for not too long, opening the lid is enough.

    Have they changed something recently? Is it a normal behaviour or something went wrong with my computer's hardware or software?

    On my 2012 MBA with 10.9.4, I open the lid, wait for a second and the desktop pops up. Don't have to touch the spacebar.

    It's funny I'm having the same issue. I wasn't sure what it was though. I have a 2014 13" MBA.
