After installing Yosemite, cannot login after wake from sleep mode

After upgrading to Yosemite this morning, I've had the problem that after the computer goes into sleep mode, I cannot log back in to use the computer because I can't enter my user password.  The screen looks fine after I press a key on the keyboard or move the mouse (I see the users and where I would type my password), but mouse clicks do not allow me to activate the password box (however, I do see the mouse pointer and can move it), and any buttons pressed on the keyboard have no effect.  If I shut the computer down, I can login without problem.  Any thoughts on how to resolve this?  I'd hate to have to turn the computer off every time I step away for 10 minutes...

  • Helix 20CG won't wake from sleep mode

    After doing all updates (windows/lenovo) and ensuring latest lenovo power managers are installed, my Helix 20CG will still not wake from sleep mode. This problem has been persistant since the second day I had the computer.
    If the Helix is in sleep mode for more than 2 hours and you press the power button, the screen will not turn on. However if the tablet is docked on the ultrabook keyboard the green light on the Fn key will briefly flicker. Also if you press the power button and then immediately hit the windows button on the bottom of the tablet it will vibrate a bit, but in both cases the screen does not turn on.
    After continuously hitting the power button for ~5-10 minutes the screen will eventually turn on.
    Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    For the past week, I've been using the Helix and just shutting it down every time I walk away from it. This morning I put it in sleep mode walked away for an hour or so and when I went to wake it up, by pressing the power button, the green light on the Fn key flashed but it would not wake up. I held the power button down for 4 seconds to do a hard reboot. I checked the system log, and when the computer was "asleep" the following warnings were recorded:

  • IPhone 1.1.4 will not wake from sleep mode

    Hi all,
    I have an iPhone with 1.1.4 firmware. The problem that I have is that the phone will not wake from sleep mode by pressing the "home" button. I have to press both the "home" and "sleep/power" buttons and hold them for 6 seconds for the phone to restart. I did restore the phone twice - did not solve the problem. Then, one day, I left it charging for about 3 days and when I came back it started working fine. Not for long though( After about a week of normal usage the wake up problem came back. I don't know what to do. I don't think it's the software problem, since I did complete restoration 2 times.
    If the phone is connected to a charger or computer - it wakes up fine.
    Thanks, Gene K

    When you've restored the iPhone, have you tried setting it up as a new phone? This would truly eliminate software as a possibility.
    If setting it up as a new phone doesn't correct the issue, it's probably time for service:
    Hope this helps,

  • PowerBook won't wake from sleep mode

    My PowerBook G4 won't wake from sleep mode. I open the lid and nothing happens. I hold down the power button and nothing happens. I resetted the PMU and it will wake up and I am able to login and then it goes back to sleep mode. What should I do please help? And if my computer is dead, is there any way to retrieve my information saved on the hard drive?

    this would happen to me when my battery was dead. you test the battery life? (little button on bottom near battery)
    I'd make sure it was plugged in and let it charge for 10 minutes or so. then try restarting it if it doesnt wake up by itself.

  • Compter won't wake from sleep mode

    My Pavilion 17 notebook computer, purchased in Oct. '13, won't wake from sleep mode; I must shut down and reboot each time.  I know this is not due to Windows 8, as I have another Win 8 computer that works normally.

    I've done some more experimentation and found a workaround. I had Sleep and the Screensaver both set to Never, and by activating the Screensaver the wake up issue has gone away. This doesn't change the fact that there is an issue with my ATV sleeping when it shouldn't and failing to wake up, but having the screensaver active stops it sleeping in the first place I guess.
    It's slightly annoying because I like to have music playing with the description and album art running, and this disappears when the screensaver comes on, but it is better than unplugging the thing every time I use it. Hopefully this will be fixed in the next update, because it only appeared in the last one.

  • Battery wakes from sleep mode

    I have a user who's laptop wakes from sleep mode while the laptop is closed. We changed the battery, checked all settings for sleep mode (wake on LAN, etc) and it still wakes up while the lid is closed. Also, the laptop gets really hot on the left-hand side by the fans, below the screen.
    Any other suggestions of what it could be? I'm not sure where else to go.
    Go to Solution.

    Hi again, itjedi
    I did some research and found that there are some driver updates available for the machine that may be of some assistance. I would definitely make sure the BIOS gets updated, but the others may help as well. All of them can be found here, and the results can be filtered by OS and device type if you'd like.
    Best of luck. Let me know how it goes

  • After Lion upgrade, MacBookPro has trouble wake from sleep.

    After Lion upgrade, my Macbook Pro now sometimes will not wake from sleep.  If I close the lid the pulsating light pulsates. Open the lid and the pulsating light goes out and the keyboard backlight activate, screen blank and no keyboard response.

    I've been looking for answers, since upgrading to lion, my problem is more of a nusance, when I close the lid on my macbook pro (15" 2.66 i7, 8GB RAM) and it goes into sleep mode, when I reopen the screen the screen backlight comes up momentarily, then goes black (screen image there, just no backlighting) nothing gets it to come out (reclose/open, clicking trackpad, any keys, etc.) except the F1 key.  Pushing the F1 "wakes" the backlighting, then I just hit the F2 to brighten it back up, I don't have any further issues until I close it again.  Granted not that big of a deal given all the issues everyone else is having with this, but still a nusance I would like to fix.  Don't know if this will work for you, but it's been working for me.
    I have the same problem with my MBP 17"
    Would have been nice if Apple had taken the time to respond.

  • Snow Leopard won't always wake from sleep mode

    Most of the time the system functions fine, but at least once a week, I cannot wake it from sleep mode using the mouse, space bar, or keys. I have to do a hard reboot, which I don't like doing. Are there settings I can adjust properly (Energy Saver or Computer Sleep time or Display time) to stop this from happening? Should it take a few seconds after I hit the space bar?
    Or should I just shut it down at night or for periods of several hours?
    Is there anything wrong with never letting it sleep? Thanks!

    Interesting how a common thread I see on these failures is 4GB ram upgrades. I too have a 4GB aftermarket RAM kit in my late 07 black MB. No issues with this machine, having this exact hardware / RAM configuration for 1+ years. My problems started about the time I ran the 10.5.6 upgrade, which may or may not have included a firmware update.
    I would be inclined to think memory timing issues or undervolting the RAM during sleep which causes it to corrupt. Perhaps the OEM RAM modules are looking for different timings / voltage than Apple provided RAM modules.
    All said, I am VERY confident this is not a hardware defect but instead firmware related. It doesn't appear to be OS related as none of these failures are making it into the console logs - the machine is asleep, deeeeep sleep. For all intents when it starts it is as if it lost complete power and starts from hibernation file (or starts from scratch if you didn't have a hibernation file...

  • IMac occasionally fails to wake from sleep mode

    This is a transient problem. Happens every 2-3 days that computer fails to wake up from sleep mode. Space bar doesn't do anything and I finally have to unplug it and reboot. I have a late 2008 iMac and am running Lion. It has started doing this after I installed Lion but doesn't seem to be related.

    It's tough to troubleshoot intermittent problems. You can try by restarting in Safe Mode, this will clear some caches. It's possible one or more is corrupt.

  • No wake from sleep mode MBP later 2011

    On my MBP late 2011 build, with OSX Lion Preinstalled. I upgraded to Mountain lion recently, and all went smooth until I closed the lid to put it too sleep. When I returned, opened the lid, it would not wake from sleep. I have to force shutdown and then boot up. This happpens regardless of on or off hte AC adapter. I have already lost some data from this problem. From the online forums I have seen others with this issues, but have found no resolution.  Please HELP!

    Well after calling Apple support, they determined it was some sort of software issue., so then i took it to the university tech depot and the tech did all the things i tried (SMC reset, reupdate, etc) and a few other resets (not exaclty sure what he did), but nothing seemed to work.
    However, this morning, miraculously, it started working (sleep mode that is). I an not sure still what exactly is going on, but its working for now.

  • Etch A Sketch Problem - failure to wake from sleep mode

    My iMac fails to recover from sleep mode.  I have only noticed the problem when it has been left in sleep mode overnight.  When I try to wake it, the last screen viewed appears.  The mouse moves the cursor, but a trail of dark grey is made as you move the cursor.  It operates much like an Etch A Sketch.  When the power button is pressed, the log-in screen appears.  After logging in, the iMac seems to operate properly.  This just started last week.  I haven't loaded any new programs.  Has anyone else experienced this problem?  What is the cause and a possible solution?

    Here's the article,  review the bottom of the article.

  • Ibook won't wake from sleep mode

    I have an ibook G4. I have a slid show for a screen saver, and the display is set to sleep when the computer is inactive for 15 minutes. Recently the computer does not wake from sleep. It is stuck on a screen saver picture, and does not wake up when i press a key. The only way to access the computer is to shut it down by pressing the Start button.
    I have tried to remove the slide show, but no difference.

    I would suggest resetting the PMU. Since the PMU has control over sleeping and waking, resetting it may help.
    Every time you have to do a forced shutdown (by pushing the start button) instead of a normal one, there is a chance of hard drive damage and you should repair the hard drive, either by booting into Safe Mode or starting up from the Mac OS X Install Disc by inserting the disc and restarting your computer, holding down the C key at the end of the startup chime. Then choose Installer > Open Disk Utility (in Panther) or Utilities > Disk Utility (in Tiger) and select the hard drive in the left column. Choose the First Aid tab. Click Repair Disk to test and repair the hard drive. Once you have repaired the hard drive with either Safe Mode or the Install disc's Disk Utility, then start up normally and repair permissions from Disk Utility in the Utilities folder on your hard drive.
    For future reference, you may want to try posting in the iBook G4 Forum with questions.

  • Boot Problem! Slow start up, shut down and wake from sleep mode.

    I have a MBP late 2009. I used it a long time whit Snow Leopard, few month ago i did an upgrade to Mavericks.
    To start up it takes 30-40 seconds until appear the apple logo. Then 2 minutes more to start up the sistem.
    When I wake the machine from sleep mode it takes 40 seconds to be working.
    Shut down 40 seconds.
    Even sometime it get frezze using only Safari.
    Things I have tried:
    Reinstall Snow Leopard (clean install)
    Install Mavericks (clean install)
    Replace the HD
    ¿Any idea?
    Sorry for mi poor English

    have you ensured that all of your installed software is compatible with Mavericks?
    If you boot into Safe mode, does it still take 40 seconds to awaken from sleeping, or to shut down? (It will take longer to start up in Safe mode because it will perform “sanity checks” on your boot disk.)
    If you have a bootable external disk with Mavericks installed, use Startup Manager to boot from the external disk. Does it take just as long to boot, awaken from sleep, and shut down from the external disk as it does from the internal disk?
