This has been happening for several months and I had MacBook checked out at Genius Bar - no problems found. It goes to sleep while I am reading email or an article and won't wake up for 20-30 seconds. Nothing on screen except arrow that doesn't respond to keyboard or touchpad. Very annoying for impatient users. Anyone else having this problem? I am up to date on OSX 10.9.4. It eventually wakes up without a restart.

There is a known issue with the MB AIr 2013. Here is a link to a discussion that is similar to what you are describing.

If you read the whole post you will find other links with more information. It seems there is a wide variety of symptoms that ultimately result in a black screen and failure to wake up for varying lengths of time - or not at all.

Hope this helps!
