Mac OSX: Sleep/Wake Issue

In Apple, OS X, Technology on May 3, 2012 at 10:22 am

Having trouble waking your Mac up after you put it to sleep?  Fear not!  I suspected hardware issues were causing my 13″ Macbook Pro’s drowsiness, but it seems Apple has a simple fix available that has worked well for me so far.

  1. Shut down your Mac and plug-in your AC adapter
  2. Press CTRL+OPTION+SHIFT and the Power button simultaneously
    • You will likely notice the light on your Magsafe AC adapter change colors
  3. Release all keys and power your Mac back on
  4. Viola!

If you prefer your fixes to come straight from the mouth of the beast, head on over to for the details.

NOTE: I tested this on an early 13″ Macbook Pro with OS X Snow Leopard – I cannot prove that it will work with other versions, though apple’s KB article has directions for various versions and hardware.
