it cant harm my mac from say I go down stairs after its gone to sleep from the 10 minute timer ive set then I wake it up and then say I have to go back downstairs and goes back to sleep ? is it ok for it to keep going into sleep if im busy round the house but i wake it up to check things? thanks for your other reply
basically what I am saying is it ok to keep going into sleep and I only wake it up to check things? I shut it down though when I am completely done with it

That is no problem, I have different MBP's and they wake/sleep many times a day. Never caused a problem at all.
You should have no concern about it.

Thanks for your help mate it's my first mac
So it's definitely 100 percent fine for my mac to take
5-10 seconds to wake up from sleep sometimes? I spent 1700 for the 15 inch retina so I'm proper paranoid with it but yeah is it perfectly normal and fine to take that long sometimes ?

Yes, all of mine take a few seconds to wake, it is not instantaneous.
So no worries there.
Yeah they are expensive, but I think that they are worth it, I prefer OSX to Windows. You will get accustomed to the OS rapidly, it is much more intuitive, and not dropdown after dropdown, window after window to get where you want to go.
Just a tip, in your profile you should also include the year, model/size, and OSX version you are using this will help anyone who reads a question you post if you have a need to in the future. Some of the advice/suggestions can be based on that info.
Thanks for using Apple Support Communities

so just to clarify your macbook has not woken up for 5-10 seconds before? I am well happy mine is fine I had a lot of problems on my old mac 13 inch after the second day with track pad and keyboard hanging

Always takes 5s minimum sometimes a little longer, as long as it works OK, I would put this out of my mind. Best

yeah cool so I was worrying about absoloutely nothing thats fine then
last thing though how often do you have to charge your mac?
Currently Being ModeratedNov 4, 2013 6:16 AM (in response to marcus hamilton)
You can leave on the charger for most of the time, you should let it run down to about 20-30% charge monthly, then let it fully recharge. The Mac will not "over charge" but it is good to a cycle on anout once a month. You do not want to let it run all the way down (much less than 20%) as this puts strain on it)

hey sorry for all the questions but I was on f1 racing 2012 and it just stuck on the loading I had to force quit but bioshock infinite works on highest settings do games just sometimes stop responding sometimes? is this the mac or just the game that messes up sometimes? sorry I have just bought my first mac so sorry for bombarding you but yeah is this just the game messing up
thanks again you are a real help

Sometimes, anything can stop.(rarely) To be honest, I'm not a gamer, I will mess around with something, rarely, so I can not be of much help with that sort of thing, being not familiar with them. Did your F1 load after a re-try?
I do know that it's best to max out the ram for smoother gaming and they are GPU hogs in terms of compute cycles.
Make sure the disc you are loading is clean,(or scratched) that can sometimes cause an issue, as for saying with any certainty, I can not.
I don't mind the questions at all, that's why we do this here, but I will not try to comment on something that I don't have any experience with.
If Bioshock seems to work fine at the highest settings, it would lead me to beleive that it is the F1 game, but this is only a guess.
You may check on the F1 site for user threads that may offer some info on this
Also maybe some useful info in this thread:

well my laptop is the brand new out i7 15 inch quad core processor also it has no disc drive but the game does ask for 8gb of ram which is all I have my laptop just has 8gb and it says it will work on hd 4000 graphics which is mine and it said that if I have that graphics its recommened to use it with 8gb ram which is all I got but yeah it worked before that and after I force quit it so I think it was just the game that messed up right?
