Ah, Apple. They’re doing their best to make me switch from the “it rocks!” department to the cynic “well, it just sucks less” party. The latest news is that my Mac doesn’t like being put to sleep: on a regular and worrisome basis, when I open the lid on my MBP, the system is clearly being sleepless, with a glowing screen, some weird messages from airport asking me to join some unknown network from places I have been through, a box hot as if it has been crunching numbers all the way and an almost dead battery.
This is getting increasingly annoying. I started to blame my habit of using the lid to narcotize my computer, but it seems that even using the apple menu and waiting/double checking that the machine is sneezing before packing doesn’t quite help. Somewhat, when I’m carrying the computer around, the silver box awakes from sleep and starts working, which means both draining battery power and using the disk in a bumpy situation, something I don’t really fancy. Is it only my unfortunate machine, or is this a known issue?
