Portable Mac sleep problems

Published by Andrew Watson

Default Portable Mac sleep problems

Portability is what everyone wants and in case of the things which you use very often it plays a very important role. Mac users often prefer portables in the form of iBooks, PowerBooks, MacBooks and MacBook Pros. But there is major problem that these Mac portables do not go for a proper sleep and in few of the cases it is temperamental.

In some of the cases the wake up is not proper or with a complete black screen. The system doesn’t respond in few of the cases and also an extreme hot to touch state has also been found while the fans are running full blast. These all problems are integrated to be termed as Mac sleep problems. Portables have now become an integral part of modern life style and saving data on them, a common activity. So losing the data can be a traumatic experience and thus knowing the reason and cure for Mac data recovery is necessary.

This problem may rise due to a feature called safe sleep, added by Apple in recent years. The feature copies all the contents of RAM to the hard drive, but it doesn’t work properly in few of the cases where some writing procedure is on its way to the hard drive. There could be another reason too for the same if you slightly move your portable before it’s asleep. In this case sudden motor sensor gets triggered and until the motion stops, the hard drive parks and thus the safe sleep fails.

In many of the instances the problem may also happen due to interaction of certain peripheral devices like USB, Fire Wire, and Bluetooth etc. The cure for the same comes in many names:
• Disable safe sleep and type sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 after opening up the terminal.
• Unplugging all the peripheral devices before the system go for a sleep.
• Reinstalling the MAC OS X.

The solutions are many but they worth if and only they work. So if disabling the safe sleep or unplugging the devices doesn’t work, then the last option opted is to reinstall the operating system.
Several of the users think that this the easiest option to solve the problem, but they never look onto the other side which displays a data loss. Yes, it can happen as reinstalling the OS again require a formatting the primary volume of hard drive which will certainly delete all the data from there. So if the hard drive is not partitioned or certain important data is there on the primary volume, then get ready to fall in the condition of Mac data loss.

But there is a good solution for it if you search for called data recovery mac software. These software recover your data in each probable instance of data loss from Mac even from the formatted hard drive and the only need left is to search for the best one. There is a variety of Mac data recovery software in the market, so choose the best.

And the best can be none other than Stellar Phoenix Macintosh - Data Recovery Software. This software supports HFS, HFS+, HFSX and HFS Wrapper file systems and thus providing a complete solution. The software has been designed to employ powerful algorithms to scan your hard drive completely and recover your data with the maximum of possibility.

The software can recover all type of files like multimedia files, library files and document files and is able to save the results if in between you want to stop the procedure.
