Powerbutton makes my Macbook Air go straight to sleep

Since i updated to Mavericks my Macbook Air goes straight to sleep when i push the power button. That is REALLY annoying because it breaks up my internet connection everytime.
If i want to go to sleep mode i just close my Macbook. Why would anyone need 2 options to go to sleep mode?
How can i fix this?

I'm pretty sure it's screen off, at least for mine when I tested it.
Agree with you that Apple could have make it "less sensative".  Maybe use it as a boss/privacy key
I did a continuous ping and in the middle of it, pressed the power button ... screen turns off.  Then a couple of seconds later, pressed it again and screen turns on.  There was no interuption to the ping test.

  • Can I make a MacBook Air 2011 restore drive?

    Sorry for repeating this question, I know it's been asked before, but I don't feel it's been answered as clearly as possible.
    I have just bought a 13-inch 2011 MacBook Air (128GB model) and during it's first boot, a glitch caused what Apple Care called a ghost user account to be written to the hard drive, it stalled the computer at the end of the registraition and then started the whole process over again from scratch and locked me out completely, saying I couldn't use the name I had entered. I had to do an interent restore (which took almost four hours when it finally worked), which took several attempts and 3.74GB of data.
    It is now back to it's initial boot stage again, but before I go ahead and set it up, I would like to know if there is any means of creating a backup that I can boot from in the future, should I ever need to do a clean install, as I don't want to go through the painful internet restore again.
    I've read that buying the USB Lion drive from the Apple Store is pointless as it doesn't have the version of Lion on it that the MacBook Air ships with.
    I tried booting the MacBook Air from a download of Lion from the App Store that I bought for my MacBook Pro, but that didn't work at all (I had already made a recovery disc from the App before installing it, which had worked a few months back when I rest my MBP but wouldn't work for the MBA).
    I don't have an external hard drive, so I can't do a Time Machine backup either.
    So the question is - is it possible or not - and if so, how do you do it (in the simplest possible terms)?
    Thanks to anyone (in advance) who can help here.

    You could use a flash drive, but they tend to get a bit pricey in sizes over 32 GBs. You might find it less expensive to use a plain old, ordinary USB external hard drive. However, if you're game you can buy a USB notebook drive enclosure and a 128 GB replacement 2.5" SATA SSD. You can find a cheap one for about $130.00. A straight USB-only enclosure can be found for $10.00. For more general info:
    Basic Backup
    Get an external drive at least equal in size to the internal hard drive and make (and maintain) a bootable clone/backup. You can make a bootable clone using the Restore option of Disk Utility. You can also make and maintain clones with good backup software. My personal recommendations are (order is not significant):
    Carbon Copy Cloner
    Data Backup
    Deja Vu
    Synk Pro
    Visit The XLab FAQs and read the FAQ on backup and restore.  Also read How to Back Up and Restore Your Files.
    Although you can buy a complete external drive system, you can also put one together if you are so inclined.  It's relatively easy and only requires a Phillips head screwdriver (typically.)  You can purchase hard drives separately.  This gives you an opportunity to shop for the best prices on a hard drive of your choice.  Reliable brands include Seagate, Hitachi, Western Digital, Toshiba, and Fujitsu.  You can find reviews and benchmarks on many drives at Storage Review.
    Enclosures for FireWire and USB are readily available.  You can find only FireWire enclosures, only USB enclosures, and enclosures that feature multiple ports.  I would stress getting enclosures that use the Oxford chipsets especially for Firewire drives (911, 921, 922, for example.)  You can find enclosures at places such as;
    Cool Drives
    Firewire Direct
    California Drives
    All you need do is remove a case cover, mount the hard drive in the enclosure and connect the cables, then re-attach the case cover.  Usually the only tool required is a small or medium Phillips screwdriver.
    Clone Lion using Restore Option of Disk Utility
    Boot to the Recovery HD:
    Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the COMMAND and R keys until the menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears. Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.
    Select Disk Utility from the main menu then press the Continue button.
    Select the destination volume from the left side list.
    Click on the Restore tab in the DU main window.
    Check the box labeled Erase destination.
    Select the destination volume from the left side list and drag it to the Destination entry field.
    Select the source volume from the left side list and drag it to the Source entry field.
    Double-check you got it right, then click on the Restore button.
    Destination means the external backup drive. Source means the internal startup drive.
    Drive Preparation for a New External Drive
    1. Open Disk Utility in your Utilities folder.
    2. After DU loads select your hard drive (this is the entry with the mfgr.'s ID and size) from the left side list. Click on the Partition tab in the DU main window.
    3. Under the Volume Scheme heading set the number of partitions from the drop down menu to one. Click on the Options button, set the partition scheme to GUID then click on the OK button. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.) Click on the Partition button and wait until the process has completed.
    4. Select the volume you just created (this is the sub-entry under the drive entry) from the left side list. Click on the Erase tab in the DU main window.
    5. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.) Click on the Security button, check the button for Zero Data and click on OK to return to the Erase window.
    6. Click on the Erase button. The format process can take up to several hours depending upon the drive size.

  • Please help me make my Macbook air play sound?

    Hello all!
    My Macbook air doesn't play sound anymore. It originally started with when I plugged in my HDMI cord to play on my LCD TV and it wouldn't work. Then I started fiddling with the settings and got it to work for a second. Then with a little more fiddling, somehow managed to turn off internal speakers. The volume is grey with no controls. If I adjust volume with keyboard, the cross out sign shows. I just would love to get some music coming out of my laptop again, and if I could get the HDMI to work too, that would be bonus!!

    Try doing an SMC reset     http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964    Then go into system prefs/sound/output and makes sure internal speakers are highlighted, if they aren't click on them

  • Flash Player on Firefox 22.0 makes my Macbook Air (Mid-2011, 13-inch) hot

    For some reason, Flash Player makes my Macbook's temperature go up to 75 degrees Celcius when in use while on Safari (HTML5, with no flash addon) it is at 60 degrees Celcius. Is there a fix for this or should I use Safari's HTML5 player instead?

    its a known fact that firefox uses MORE power than safari does, however what youre doing is all I myself use as well.  If you want longer battery life while unplugged use safari, however i use Firefox for a reason, pluginns etc.

    Hello robsone88,
    It sounds like you are getting this Kernel Panic when your computer goes to sleep. I recommend startign by performing a Disk Verification, and repair with the following article:
    Disk Utility 12.x: Repair a disk
    Print this help page so you can refer to it later. (You don’t have access to Disk Utility Help when you restart up your computer in the next step.)In the Disk Utility Help window, choose Print from the Action pop-up menu (looks like a gear).
    Choose Apple menu > Restart. Hold down the Command (⌘) and R keys as your computer restarts.When you see a white screen with an Apple logo in the middle, you can release the keys.
    Click Disk Utility, and then click Continue.
    In the list at the left, select the item you want to repair. (Be sure to select an item that’s indented to the right in the list, not an item at the far left.)
    Click First Aid.
    If Disk Utility tells you the disk is about to fail, back it up and replace it. You can’t repair it.
    Click Repair Disk.If Disk Utility reports that the disk appears to be OK or has been repaired, you’re done. Otherwise, you may need to do one of the following steps.
    If Disk Utility reports “overlapped extent allocation” errors, two or more files occupy the same space on your disk, and at least one of them is likely to be corrupted. Check each file in the list of affected files. If you can replace a file or recreate it, delete it. If it contains information you need, open it and examine its data to make sure it hasn’t been corrupted. (Most of the files in the list have aliases in a DamagedFiles folder at the top level of your disk.)
    If Disk Utility can’t repair your disk or it reports “The underlying task reported failure,” try to repair the disk or partition again. If that doesn’t work, back up as much of your data as possible, reformat the disk, reinstall Mac OS X, and then restore your backed-up data.If you continue to have problems with your disk, it may be physically damaged and need to be replaced.
    If the issue persists, I would next take a look at the following article to help you troubleshoot kernel panics, and unexpected restarts named:
    OS X: When your computer spontaneously restarts or displays "Your computer restarted because of a problem."

  • Macbook air wot get off sleep?

    I have a recently bought a Macbook air- at most 3 weeks old. Due to the close proximity of the power button to the delete button, I sometimes press the off button accidentally. The Air then goes into sleep mode, at which it is usually toggled off if I close the lid and open it again. However, there are some times when ono amount of closing the lid and re-opening will do the trick, or hitting the space bar (or any key for that matter.) LIghtly tappping the power button again doesn't work- what only seems to work is to restart the computer. This is very annoying- as I am writing someething and have to restart entirely and also re-login into my accounts.
    I have unchecked "put all hardware to sleep" in System Preferences.
    Any solutions?

    Common problem, for which Apple have yet to produce a solution.  It is said that they are working on a firmware update that will address it but this has been talked about for a long time and still no update.
    The current "solution" (which is not a solution) given by Apple is to set sleep mode to 'never', or to wait a few secconds after sleep before waking the MBA, or install the free App 'Caffeine" which allows you to manually activate sleep and wake.
    Some persons have claimed a "bare metal restore" of the operating system resolved the problem but others have tried this without success.

  • Is there a way to prevent MacBook Air to go to sleep when using Spotify?

    I have a Macbook Air with the latest version of Maverics and I often listen to music on it, via airplay and headphones. This works great, but when I'm not using the computer for anything else but spotify it goes to sleep after the specified time and I loose the sound. I wonder whether there is  way to adjust the settings so that only certain programs like Spotify can prevent my Mac from going to sleep when they are active.
    Thanks a bunch!

           Bring it right back to the Apple store and tell them what they did to try to fix the problem did not work..  They are responsible for fixing it since it is still under warranty.

  • Macbook air 13, waking from sleep VERY slowly.

    After I open the lid on my MBA the screen awakens nearly instantly, but the mouse cursor does not appear for 5-7 seconds. Then after it finally does appear it remains unresponcive for another 5-10 seconds after that. Some times it can take my computer 30 seconds to fully awaken. I really have no idea how to fix it.
    I took it to apple store some time ago, and they replaced the logic board and something called .DS_store started poping up on my desktop and retuns even if i delete it.
    But the problem still prisists. Any help would be greatly apprciated.
    MacBook Air Mid 2011
    Processor: 1.7 GHz i5
    RAM: 4GB 1333 MHz DDR3
    Graphics: Intel HD graphics 3000 W/ 384MB
    Storage: 128GB flash storage

    I have had this issue a couple of times too and it seems to be when I select sleep from the menu, when I close the lid it seems to work fine.  And when I push the power button it's hard to see what's happening becuase on my MacBook Air there are no ligths.  So I end up holding the power button and then pushing it again and it seems to restart.   My MacBook Air is new, about 2 months, OS X 10.9.

  • Macbook Air suddenly goes to sleep

    Sometimes when I'm using my Macbook Air in bed in my lap the screens goes dark and it goes to sleep on its own.  I think it may have something to do with having my phone in my pocket at the same time.  Has anyone else experienced this?

    Yeah I've noticed that about my MBA too.  Not sure why it happens though.

  • Macbook air changes application after sleep

    I have an 11" MacBook air, core i5 4GB, running 10.7.3
    When I close the screen and reopen it, Lion changes to the 'previous' program as if depressing cmd-tab once.
    Any thoughts on how to adjust this?

    My problem with my MBA not reconnecting to wifi after sleep is now fixed.
    The problem was that my router was set to NOT broadcast the SSID.  Once I changed it to broadcast the SSID the problem went away.  The document below was helpful.

  • I have to twist the lid to make contact macbook air

    I'm new to this site. I have a 2009 mackbook air. It developed vertical lines on a white screen. I thought it was the video processess. I replaced the logic board and booted the machine to discover the same issue. As I was closing the lid, I noticed the screen came back to normal with log in window. You have to hold the lid in the twisted position to make contact. Does anyone know the problem?

    I guess I meant to say dispay. I've tried every position to fully open. Nothing works but twisting the upper half to make contact. Weird! Delamination?
    twisting the upper half to make contact. ...........  with what? The bottom chassis, or does not the display assy. close flush and even with the lower chassis.
    I presume by "make contact" you rather mean open the fault to feed the display correct.
    delamination, no....., however are you saying twist rather than TORQUE?
    twisting laterally the entire display and the occurrence = display feeds
    to torque the entire display assy. (bend it) and have the occurrence = inverter board feeds in the display assy.
    either way its the display assy.
    However you did NOT answer the only important question:
    Is it only coming on immediately before closing?  If so you have a defective reed sensor switch.
    Since you replaced the Logic board yourself, obviously its good you have repair skills, as do I.
    In which case to determine if its the reed switch OR the display assy. Apple can diagnose your Air for you in shop no charge if yo make an appt.

  • Why is my MacBook Air slow to enter sleep mode?

    My partner's goes to sleep instantly, mine takes about 30 seconds - most obvious difference is that I have MS Office installed (but not running).  I've tried resetting SMC but no benefit.  Help would be much appreciated.

    No, nothing whatsoever.  Have just upgraded to the latest OS (10.8.2? Don't have the MacBook to hand, but was latest a few hours ago :-D), but hasn't helped.  Presumably some process is running that takes a while to close - but wary of closing down processes without knowing for sure what they're doing!
    In the *past* I had an external DVD drive attached - used it when installing MS Office - but hasn't been connected for months, and MacBook has been switched on and off and restarted several times since.
    Grateful for any help you can give!
