I have a MacBook Air 13" 2012. With Mountain Lion the Power Nap feature is nowhere to be found. The checkbox is missing in the Energy Settings Pref Pane.

 

Am I the only one?

This requires a firmware update. Just be patient. You should see one appear in Updates shortly.

ClayG,

Where did you hear about a firmware update? I have the new (mid-2012) MacBook Air (11") and I do not have the Power Nap setting either. I purchased Mountain Lion on my 2010 MacBook Pro and copied it to my Air to avoid a double download. I was wondering if the original download recognized the MacBook Pro was not compatible with Power Nap and a specific version of the OS was downloaded (seems pretty unlikely to me). However, the MacWorld OS review showed this feature and didn't mention a firmware update. How did they get this feature to work.

 

Thanks for any insights.

Dave

    David,

     

    Some models require a firmware update and some don't. Those that don't already have Power Nap enabled. This is a footnote from Apple's website:

     

    3   Power Nap requires a Mac notebook with built-in flash storage. May require a firmware update.

    In the last Developer Release (not GM) it was enabled, now it's not available. For the mid 2012 Air a Firmware Upgrade should not be rquired. I think it's a bug

    I am using the GM which should be identical to the Final Release (same build number). Is everybody with the same problem on the GM or also Mac users which bought Mountain Lion today on the App Store?

    I purchased Mountain Lion through the App Store this morning and also don't see the option for Power Nap in Energy Saver.  I have a mid 2011 macbook air which should be compatible.
