I have read many articles today and I remain a little confused. I have seen the Apple discussion at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4392 regarding "Standby Mode", but I appear to have limited progress.
Can the community verify if "Standby Mode" (controlled by pmset) be used on a late 2012 MacBook Pro. This is a model without the Retina display, however, when I do pmset -g... I do see standby in the display (as seen below) which implies it should be active.
When I look at pmset -g I do see the standby line item, but if I set to "1", the unit still appears to not want to enter true hibernation. I have hibernationmode set to 3 so that true hibernation only enables after the standbydelay period that is defined. Obviously, if I set hibernationmode to 25, a true hibernate starts immediately, but I don't really want that, I am looking for the delay function that standby enables.
I have reset the SMC and currently have the following pmset conditions (modified for testing)
Also, an auxilary question. Can anyone explain the autopoweroff and autopoweroffdelay settings? They appear to undocumented in manpages and can not locate any info on the web.
