Here is the details for the latest ML update (10.8.3) http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5612:
- "A fix for an issue that may cause the screen to display incorrectly after waking from sleep"
Hopefully, that will resolve the issue!
with 10.8.3 my MBP still is not able to wake from deep sleep.
The greyed Desktop is shown for a view seconds while trying to restore. After that a complete reboot is done by the system. Very time-robbing.
After the hidden catch with the not working airplay feature I can say that 10.8 is the most disappointing OS X ever seen.
my mac: MBP 5,1 (early Unibody)
UPDATE- 10.8.3. has NOT solved my sleep-wake issue
I have set the sleep to never and have been shutting down every night now.
Although it's a temporary fix, it's extremely inconvenient and damaging in the long-term for display and battery health. What an extremely pathetic bug.
Any tips on how to downgrade to 10.8.1 before i reinstall snow leopard...?
For the moment 10.8.3 has been correct and the issue did not came back, BUT I'm still not relax about it and keep to charge my iPhone directly on a wall charger. Because if it happens again I will be able to wake up my MacPro just by pluging my iPhone in one of the USB port of the hub.
Until now every time the mac would not wake up after pressing a key on the keyboard, plugging the iPhone would switch on the lights of the hub and MacPro then wakes up. Does not work if the iPhone was charged through MacPro USB, disconnected and reconnected, it has to be disconnected before the machine goes sleeping.
Just in case it would help others ..
Setting sleep to 'never' won't harm your battery in a macbook pro.
Since you can attach your power supply to it.
And because this battery has intelligent chips on board, he knows when to load, or not.
If you have your screensaver on, set it to 5 or 10 minutes and choose your computername,
your display won't damage. And set the backlite (F1 & F2) NOT to maximum, but let's say to 70 or 80%.
Restarting your mac, ipad or iphone regularly is important.
It helps - in simple words - cleaning up, regenerating and repairing several things.
Downgrading to an incomplete 10.8.1 won't be my advise.
Downgrade for just this sleep issue, although annoying, is a bit over-the-top,
but you have to decide yourself. Tips and tricks how to do downgrade can be found in another topic.
Make sure you back-up all your personal data before doing so...
Don't rejoice prematurely, me too thought I was rid of this wake from sleep issue after nearly a week without any troubles. BUT it occurred again after 6 days :
Mar 15 19:03:19 localhost bootlog: BOOT_TIME 1363370599 0 Was the reboot after install
Mar 21 14:02:54 localhost bootlog: BOOT_TIME 1363870974 0 Was the reboot after wake from sleep issue.
It occurred in the afternoon, after I came back from lunch, while before it used to be in the morning (I never switch off the machine for the night).
The trick that used to work, plug the iPhone, did failed this time.
So you have to be careful on your assumption that 10.8.3 did fix the problem, alas ..
Mine is solved! Updated the driver for my video card, and that took care of it. I found the solution here.... although I don't know where. (Sorry) But I can tell you that someone checked the log and discovered his machine was erring out on on a video card driver issue, and discovered that was the issue, then found out that NVIDIA had recognized the problem and issued a new driver. is card - and mine: NVIDIA GeForce GT 120. But there may be similar issues with others.
I'll go see if I can find the thread. brb.
Hope this helps! (It definitely did for me.)
