Macbook Pro Retina 13'' - Power button and sleep mode

I just updated my Mac, which is the latest Macbook Pro Retina 13''. All of a sudden, it refuses to enter sleep mode when I press the power button, which worked perfectly fine before the update. I now have to manually enter sleep mode from the monitor. After entering sleep mode, It works fine to press the power button to make it work again, but not reverse. Why?
Thanks in advance!

I have this problem as well. Worked perfectly before I updated to OS X Mavericks (10.9.2).
Now I have to hold the power button in for it to sleep or click on it for a few times. But there is no problem when I'm going to wake the computer up, just a single push and it works fine. Is this a software issue or a hardware issue? Any respond from Apple regarding this issue and how to solve it? Or should i contact my retailer?

    I have a MacBook pro that has power issues and will not start but the hardrive is fine.  I do not want to lose all of my files so I was wondering if it's possible to transfer my hardrive from a older Macbook pro to a new one if I were to purchase a new one?  Also, the software is not updated as the computer hasn't worked for about 2 months. 
    Also, if it is possible to transfer the hardrive, would my iTunes music transfer as well?  It is not saved in the cloud.
    Thanks for your help, it is much appreciated.

    You computer is probably perfectly repairable, but if you want a new one anyway, it is perfectly possible to transfer the data from the faulty one.
    But it would be a mistake to simply put the old HD in the new computer.
    These are the steps:
    Remove Hard drive from faulty computer. (very easy on Unibody MBPs, do-able but not so easy on older MBPs)
    Put it in a cheap enclosure
    Connect it the new computer
    Boot up new computer.
    If the new computer has never been run before the Setup Assistant will ask if you want to import your apps, data, settings etc from either another mac, another HD connected to the Mac or a Time Machine back up.
    Obviously chose the second option (another HD connected to this Mac) and follow prompts.
    If the new computer has already been run (so Setup Assistant doesn't run when you boot it up), you will need to use Migration Assistant...or run the installer again so that Setup Assistant runs again.

  • My Macbook Pro Retina display heats up and makes a certain sea wave like noise. what could the issue be?

    My Macbook Pro Retina display heats up and makes a certain sea wave like noise. what could the issue be?

    You should have a backup in the first place. If you don't, buy an external drive (they're inexpensive these days) and make a Time Machine or a clone backup (using Carbon Copy Cloner).
    Then take your machine to your local Apple Store or an AASP and let them diagnose the computer. See if they can isolate what may possibly be making the 'clicking' sound.

  • The screen on my MacBook Pro Retina has horizontal lines and has a brightness flicker every few seconds since june 2013 upgrade of airport utility.

    The screen on my MacBook Pro Retina has horizontal lines and a flicker every few seconds this happened after  this weeks Airport Utility 6.3 upgrade.

    Hi John,
    I would take your machine into a Apple service center. Its highly likely a hardware issue. The most likely issue being the display has failed. If there is no external damage to the machines display they will replace the whole display under warranty for you.

  • TS1713 2013 MacBook Pro Retina 15" Power Cable Black Gunk (Ink-like)

    Hi folks,
    I have a 2013 MacBook Pro Retina 15" and I bought a spare power adapter for it (85w). Today I went to pick up the cable and my hands were covered in a black gunk. I looked down and the cable had ink-like gunk on the cable? When I went to rub it off, the white coating to the cable seemed to be burned off and showed a tan undercoat.
    Nothing was spilled on it or anything, it was just on the floor near my computer (not near anything that could burn the cable or something).
    Has anyone had this happen? What the heck happened?
    - Concerned

    In a word, yes.
    The video out capabilities for the 13" and 15" retina MBPs are the same.

  • I bought a macbook pro retina ME665 in Dubai, and 3 month later its display stopped working properly.some white lines appeared on it and display itself became white and black. Can anybody suggest what should I do to fix this problem?

    In October 2013 I was on Vacationin Dubai and bought there Macbook pro retina ME665. I returned to Kyrgystan (home town) and for New Year I was away for a week. When I came back i found that the dispaly of my laptop became white and black, some lines appeared on it. Everybody in my family told me that no one has dropped my laptop or done anything that can cause this problem. there is no any service provider of apple in my country. WIl, the international warranty cover this case? I bought this laptop not from apple store,but in a simple store and I lost reciept.

    Put the Serial Number in here...

    to see if it is registered with Apple..

  • Can the late 2013 Macbook Pro Retina 13" power 2 external Dell UltraSharp U2713HM monitors at full resolution?

    Hi, I'm looking at buying the current Macbook Pro Retina 13", but I'd like to use it with 2 Dell UltraSharp U2713HM monitors http://configure.euro.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?c=uk&cs=ukdhs1&kc=305&l=en& oc=U2713HM-Black&s=dhs&sbc=dell-u2713hm
    My plan was to use the the thunderbolt ports to the monitors DisplayPort plug. Can the 13" Macbook Pro drive 2 external screens @ 2560x1440 I'm happy to shut the macbook lid if necessary.
    If the 13" can't do it, can the 15" model with it's discrete graphics card?
    The Dell UltraSharp U2713HM – it’s everything you could want in a 27” monitor – screen brilliance, comfort and eco-consciousness all rolled into one
    27-inch (diagonal) VIS with LED backlight
    WQHD resolution, 2560 x 1440 at 60 Hz (Max)
    178°/178° ultra-wide viewing angle
    In-plane switching technology
    Customizable brightness from 50 to 350 cd/m²
    Factory calibrated color report
    More than 99% sRGB (deltaE < 5)
    DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI, DVI and VGA and USB 3.0 ports
    Pivot, tilt, swivel and height adjustable (115mm)
    Arsenic-free glass and mercury-free LED panel
    Why not the Apple Thunderbolt screen, well I prefer a non-reflective screen in the office, but If I can't do it with the Dell's can it be done with 2 27" Thunderbolt monitors from the 13" Macbook Pro?

    In a word, yes.
    The video out capabilities for the 13" and 15" retina MBPs are the same.

    One trick:  When you remove the bottom case take note of which screws go in which holes.  They differ in length.

  • My macbook pro retina gets very hot and slow

    whenever i use my macbook pro retina for an extended amount of time 1-2 hours watching videos online or playing games it gets very hot, starts lagging and gets unresponsive, i can only use it with a fan underneath basically, my old macbook pro had a similar problem, it took like 3 weeks of them checking it to find a problem which took them another couple of weeks to fix, i cannot be without my laptop for any extended period of time. fans inside seem to be working fine, but it still get incredibly hot... please help!!!

    Runaway applications can shorten battery runtime, affect performance, and increase heat and fan activity

  • My 2008 15in macbook pro randomly shuts down while in sleep mode. What can I do?

    I have a 2008 15in macbook pro that when it goes to sleep it will randomly shut down. Most times when I try to wake it up from sleep it will just shut itself down as well as when I close and reopen the computer it will just shut down. When I try to turn it back on it generally takes 2 to 3 tries to get it to finally come back on. What should I do? I think it might be a Hard Drive problem. Anything helps!

    Hello californiabears and welcome to Apple Support Communities,
    Try resetting SMC:
    http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201295
    If you think you have a HD problem look at the HD in System reports:
    Apple menu - About this Mac - More Info - System Report - SATA
    Under SMART status does say "verified"?
    Otherwise:
    Using Disk Utility to verify or repair disks - Apple Support
    Is that the original disk from 2008? If so it's due.

  • New to Mac: My Macbook Pro does not power on and off very well.  It freezes in the never ending circular swirl.  I have to hold down the power button to get a "reset."  I have updated software

    New to Mac:  My Pro does sleep, power on or power off consistently or efficiently.   It freezes into a  never ending spool.  I have to press down the power off button to reset.  I have updated my software.

    If this is a new MacBook Pro, and you're within 90 days of purchasing it from Appe, contact Apple support. In the US it's (800) APL-CARE (800-275-2273)

  • Macbook Pro Retina 2013 not waking from sleep

    Hi all,
    My brand new 15" Retina Macbook Pro (late 2013) is not waking from sleep. It doesn't occur after a short sleep (as I can wake it as normal by moving my mouse), but if the sleep is for some extended duration (not exactly sure, but at least within a couple of hours) then the only way to wake it is to use the power button.
    I've tried an SMC reset to no avail -- the problem still occurs.
    It's plugged into a power adapter and this is a screenshot of the settings page.
    This is a very annoying issue. I'm hoping someone can help?
    Thanks!
    Adam

    I managed to narrow down and reproduce the issue:
    It occurs when the 'turn display off after' time lapses. Eg, if I change the setting to 1 minute and wait for the display to turn off, the computer will *not* wake up without pressing the power button.
    Very strange. Hoping someone can provide some insight!
    Thanks,
    Adam

  • After install Mavericks I can't turn off my MacBook Pro from the power button.

    Dear all, prior to install Mavericks in my MacBook Pro, when I pushed the power button it appeared a dialog box which gave me the option to turn off the copmuter choosing the right option.
    After the installation of Mavericks,and obviuosly having the system running, when I push the power button it does just nothing.
    Does anyone have the same issue? Have someone solved it?
    Thank you very much in advance for your answers, for your attention and for your help.
    Kind regards.

    You can turn off this new sleep feature and restore the shutdown/sleep dialog box  to pop up when you press the power button.
    In Terminal copy & paste in the following command and then press enter:
    defaults write com.apple.loginwindow PowerButtonSleepsSystem -bool no
