    Specs:
    MBP 2.9GHz i7, 16GB DDR, 512GB, OSX 10.11.5
    Macbook slow to sleep
    Hello again,

    Am now a committed Apple guy. In the four years since I got my Macbook, never had a problem.

    I tend to sleep it, rather than shut it down, although will shut it down every so often, if I'm going away etc.

    One of the joys of coming from Windows was the faster start up time and the very fast shut down or sleep time.

    But now, it's starting to hang, before it shuts down. Sleep is usually pretty instant, but it sometimes hangs, too.

    The desktop icons all disappear, but the desktop picture stays on for - (it varies) - but can be a couple of minutes.

    I haven't added any new stuff recently and I always quit programs before shutting down.

    My question is - where should I start looking for the cause of this issue?

    (It's a back-handed compliment to Apple, that I have no idea where to look or what to do. With Windows I knew the system back to front. I had to because it had problems SO often)

    All advice welcomed.
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks.
    Here it is:

    Usage: pmset [-b | -c | -u | -a] <action> <minutes> [<action> <minutes>...]
    pmset -g [disk | cap | live | sched | ups | batt]
    -c adjust settings used while connected to a charger
    -b adjust settings used when running off a battery
    -u adjust settings used while running off a UPS
    -a (default) adjust settings for both
    <action> is one of: displaysleep, sleep, disksleep (minutes argument)
    or: reduce, dps, womp, ring, autorestart, powerbutton, halfdim,
    lidwake, acwake, lessbright (with a 1 or 0 argument)
    or for UPS only: haltlevel (with a percentage argument)
    haltafter, haltremain (with a minutes argument)
    or: hibernatefile <path> hibernatemode <integer>
    hibernatefreeratio <integer percent>
    hibernatefreetime <integer ms>
    eg. pmset -c dim 5 sleep 15 spindown 10 autorestart 1 womp 1
    pmset schedule [cancel] <type> <date/time> [owner]
    pmset repeat cancel
    pmset repeat <type> <days of week> <time>
    <type> is one of: sleep, wake, poweron, shutdown, wakeorpoweron
    <date/time> is in "MM/dd/yy HH:mm:ss" format
    <time> is in "HH:mm:ss" format
    <days of week> is a subset of MTWRFSU
    [owner] optionally describes the event creator

    I won't be able to reply again until tomorrow evening. Work and sleep beckon.
    I just tested things and it went to sleep instantly this time!
    Hope I'm not wasting your time, but have already learned something.
    Thanks again.

    somehow that isn't right.

    Did you do pmset -g log ?


    or just pmset ?

    it should look something like this.

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    It looks like he typed pmset -g, rather than pmset<space>-g<space>log as instructed.

    Oh. That's odd.

    I definitely typed in pmset (space) -g (space) log

    Just tried it again and got a similar result, unlike the list shown in Dysfunction's example.

    However, since I started this thread, sleep has been working very well indeed, with an instant sleep as soon as triggered.
    Although last night the OSX quit unexpectedly (report sent to Apple)
    Started it up and all seems well again.

    Mysterious!
    Thanks for help and replies.
