My macbook pro has been slow on waking up. I noticed because it sometimes “hibernated” (borrowed from window). After a little googling I found out that the time-to-hibernate time on my system was only 70 mins. So if I close my lid for longer than 70 mins, the deep sleep will occur.
To verify, issue the following command on a terminal.
You will see something like the following
Active Profiles: Battery Power -1 AC Power -1* Currently in use: standbydelay 4200 standby 0 womp 1 halfdim 1 hibernatefile /var/vm/sleepimage gpuswitch 2 sms 1 networkoversleep 0 disksleep 10 sleep 90 autopoweroffdelay 14400 hibernatemode 3 autopoweroff 1 ttyskeepawake 1 displaysleep 60 acwake 0 lidwake 1
Notice standbydelay is 4200. That’s 4200 seconds, so 70 mins.
To increase that to, say 1 day, which is 60*60*24 = 86400 seconds, issue the following command.
sudo pmset -a standbydelay 86400
Then run pmset -g to confirm standbydelay is indeed set to 86400.
Then you are done! I bet most of the time you open up your laptop at least once a day, so 86400 is probably a good value to set. But feel free to set it to any value you see fit.
