I just upgraded to Mac OS X Yosemite Beta 3, and sure enough, Apple has once again broken my time-to-deep-sleep setting. After I upgraded, I noticed that my computer took a few seconds to wake from sleep, rather than the usual instant-on that defined OS X for so long. I checked
pmset, Mac’s power management command-line utility:
$ pmset -g Active Profiles: Battery Power -1* AC Power -1 Currently in use: standbydelay 4200 standby 1 halfdim 1 hibernatefile /var/vm/sleepimage gpuswitch 2 darkwakes 0 disksleep 10 sleep 0 autopoweroffdelay 14400 hibernatemode 3 autopoweroff 1 ttyskeepawake 1 displaysleep 10 acwake 0 lidwake 1
Sure enough, the
standbydelay setting, the time until the computer switches from “sleep” to “deep sleep”, is back to 4,200 seconds (1 hour 10 minutes), not the 24 hours that I had set it to last year.
So, as before, if you want to speed up your wake up time in everyday use of your laptop, run the following command in the Terminal:
sudo pmset -a standbydelay 86400
