    "When the screen comes up it is a transparent grey, you can see the desktop behind it.  No spinning icon, but a segmented progress bar which I had never seen before.  After the progress bar completes, maybe 10 seconds, then the grey goes away and the desktop is clearly visible but can't move mouse and keyboard is not responsive.  20-30 seconds go by then the keyboard backlighting flashes and then it is fully awake.

     

    I'm thinking about doing the clean install to see if that fixes it, otherwise I'm done with it."

     

    this is what mine is doing. i know this is the safe sleep thing. i have checked my hibernate state and it is the default 3 but my battey is no where near low. it will do this if my 2011 13 mbp is closed for alittle over an hour no matter the battery life. i did not do this on lion. well i at least didnt notice it. i suspect that since ML uses so much more ram to just run that is why its taking so much long to come out of hibernate. my question is though as i understand it that it should not do what mine is doing unless more is removed from the ram and it obviously isnt. i dont want to completely disable safesleep but if i cant make it work as its supposed to i will be forced to. the rediculously long wake time is simply not acceptable when the last OS version didnt have this problem. OS new releases are supposed to improve things not make them worse. so why is my machine dumping the ram and holding it after that hour-ish mark? is there a way i can extend this time.

    ** This solved the issue for me **

     

    Hey, I HAD this issue on both my MBPro's (Early and Late 2011).

     

    Flurry screen saver active for about 10-15 minutes and took nearly 2 minutes to get machine back to working... and then they were slow to respond.

     

    My screen saver engages at 5 minute mark.

    Power saver sleeps screen in 1.5 hours and HDD@ 2hour mark.

     

    I performed the following on both Macs.

    • Recovery partition Disk Util Permission repair and Disk verify = nothing found (but I had done tis numerous times but did not help).
    • I created a test admin user account with the Arabesque screen saver. Could not reproduce.
    • I booted in Safe Boot and changed screen saver to Arabesque.  Could not reproduce.
    • I logged into my account and I deleted test user account and changed my screen saver to any screen saver except Flurry and the problem is gone.  And the machines are as fast as they have ever been.

     

    It appears the Flurry screen saver was my issue!

     

    Hope this helps.

    My retina wake up used to take about 3-5 sec and I didn't like it at all.

    I had me as an administrator and a guest profile.

    This was the default setup that came with the machine.

    So I decide to disable the user guest and without changing anything else the machine start to wake up

    in less than a 1sec!

    I guest there is something to do with multiple profiles.

    Maybe the machine saves something for both of them ?!?!?

    Maybe someone with better OSX knowlege can help.

    So I can say that I'm pretty happy now

    Changed the screensaver to something else than Flurry, disabled guest account, deleted another user account and yet no solution for me. Still doesn't want to wake up from sleep..

    I am still having this issue as well with a 15'' MBPR 2.3ghz/i7/16GB RAM

    Given the specs, it should not be happening. I have tried disabling things, resetting, everything with no luck. I also am not using the Flurry saver.

    Just an update from my post on 13-Oct-2012: All is well. I think the extra admin accounts and running the screen saver under the new accounts/save boot repaired some corrupt screen saver files. 

     

    I did notice in my system log (when I was having issues) this entry:  "Oct 11 22:21:51 MachineName.local ScreenSaverEngine[219]: <QCScreenSaverView: 0x7ff11aa38130>: Unsupported configuration"

     

    Not sure what it means, becuase I was using a standard OS X screen saver config.

     

     

    Again, here's the nuts and bolts of what did:

    Hi there,

    I've been wondering about the same issue I had on my MBPR, and I think I found some articles that would explain it all. Actually there's also an article about this on Apple suport website, and as you'll see it is not an issue but a functionnality called "Standby Mode".

    It is a state a macbook air or a macbook pro retina goes into after an hour being in sleep mode to preserve battery life.

    For more info about it you can read an interesting post here, with how you can optionnaly disable that mode :

    http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/57175/is-a-3-5-second-delay-normal-for- a-retina-macbook-pro-to-wake-up-from-sleep

    And here's the "official" explanation onAapple support website : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4392?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

    Hope it helps !

    Cheers !

    I am having the same issue. The local Apple store said that they are aware of the issues and the engineering team is working on it. I am frustrated with Apple. You spend $3,000 on a laptop and it doesn't even preform the way it should. I really hope they fix it soon. Waiting 10-20 seconds for a laptop with "flash" is unacceptable.

    The slow wake up is not a bug. Why the slow wake up appears and how to fix it can you read here..

    This is news to me. I guess that is why the local Apple store didn't give me any documentation on this "bug". I guess you can never trust the "Genius".

    So I fixed the slow startup when my laptop goes to sleep.  I changed the hybernate mode in Terminal.  My setting was 25.  I changed it to 3 but also could have done 0.

     

    Check to see what your setting is: pmset -g | grep hibernatemode

     

    To change the setting: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode X

     

    Make sure X is either 0, 3, or 25.

     

    Here is the explanation on what each number is:

     

    hibernatemode = 0 (binary 0000) by default on supported desktops.

    The system will not back memory up to persistent storage.

    The system must wake from the contents of memory; the system will lose context on power loss.

    This is, historically, plain old sleep. 


    hibernatemode = 3 (binary 0011) by default on supported portables.

    The system will store a copy of mem-ory memory ory to persistent storage

    (the disk), and will power memory during sleep. The system will wake from memory,

    unless a power loss forces it to restore from disk image. 


    hibernatemode = 25 (binary 0001 1001) is only settable via pmset.

    The system will store a copy of mem-ory memory ory to persistent storage

    (the disk), and will remove power to memory. The system will restore from

    disk image. If you want "hibernation" - slower sleeps, slower wakes, and

    better battery life, you should use this setting.

    SOLVED FOR ME AFTER TALKING TO APPLE SUPPORT !

     

    My Retina model had slow startup after sleeping. Screen would freeze about 10-15 seconds before I could do anything.

     

    If you have the same, you have to reset your SMC - see this Apple help for details.

    Very EASY fix that does not require Terminal or command lines or anything that could break your Mac.

    I'm having exactly the same issue as described by jessatd75 but it just started this week (although I've owned this laptop for a month already).  My other laptop, which is pretty much like this one but runs on Snow Leopard does not show the problem.  Most of the potential solutions apply to Retina laptops (which have the Stand-by or Power nap options) but not to regular ones.  Any suggestions?

    This very simple thing worked for me on both my '09 MacPro, and my '10 MBP - both machines got completely bogged down by Mountain Lion - wouldn't wake from sleep without a hard restart, and were SLOW at everything else.  This fixed both!

     

    Locate any files in user: library: preferences that contain "com.apple.systemuiserver" and drag them to the desktop (or trash them - I'm just never that brave).  Restart.  It worked for me.

     

    These are the files that I trashed on the desktop:

     

    com.apple.systemuiserver.plist

    com.apple.systemuiserver.plist.lockfile

     

    The laptop had those two plus one additional, sinister looking file:

     

    com.apple.systemuiserver.plist.arTIJ4d
