Slow wakeup MBA

My MBP takes about 2 seconds from time I raise the lid till I have the cursor active and ready to log on.

My MBA takes about 13 seconds after raising lid & needing a key tap to get to a log on screen and another 3 seconds before cursor shows up.

Not like 16 seconds is such a terrible thing
just doesn't seem right.

The MBA is optimized for wake up time. Older Macbook Pros were not as optimized, especially if you don't have a SSD. How old is the MBP?

My MBP 15" 2011 takes around 2-3 seconds to wake up with an SSD.

I think his problem was with the MBA.

I'd suggest resetting SMC.

My 2011 MBA takes 3-4 seconds. 16 doesn't sound bad but sit there and watch the clock; that is an eternity as far as simple resuming in concerned.

My MBA takes longer if it went to sleep with a bunch of apps open and my rMBP is simply a way faster machine so it takes 2-3 seconds no matter how many apps I left open.

Help us out, is it the MacBook Air that is the issue, or the MacBook Pro? The neither should take a long time to wake from sleep though. The SMC reset should fix things, though you could also boot into recovery mode and use disk utility to repair disk.

My MacBook wakes up fast, probably 4 seconds or so, my MacBook Air is pretty much immediate.

Ok, I have all my machines set to require pw after 1 hour of sleep
Just did the SMC reset
It did spring to a working cursor pretty much immediately when I started up after the reset process

I get up at 4AM so gonna hit the sheets before an hour will pass
Tomorrow AM will tell me (us) if the reset does the trick

I did notice that my iMessage icon up top is now black outline and remains Available which is 'new'
Previously was stuck on Off line and gray

Trivia question - what happened to the link that I think Jeff included for the reset info/process?
I had to look for it in my browsing history

Grateful for all the suggestions etc...


not

If this is a recent issue (last month or so), then your cause is most likely the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air Update 2.0 install that got pushed in November. Check in your Installed log in System Report to see if you have that update installed and when it happened... that date should coincide with when your slowness might have started to happen.

Now takes something like 2-3 seconds and ready to go
The reset seemed to be the cure

not:
I didn't get it till the 10th of this month
Bought a refurb from apple store and the genius dropped ML on it because it was hosed right out of box
