I am thoroughly enjoying my new M1 MBP. It is so fast I’m almost concerned that it may not be going to sleep when I close the lid. When I start to raise the lid the screen is on and everything is ready to go before I can get the screen fully raised.
Those of you with M1s, is that your experience as well? I’m hoping this is speed and not a failure to sleep.
I think it’s speed and magic, and not failure to sleep. This based on the excellent battery life.
It really makes my iMac Pro look slow at wakening from its slumber. “What’s all that flashing about? Oh, you can’t use my watch to log in again? More flashing? Color croutons on the external monitors? Oh, now I can work. Wait. Okay now.”
My energy impact is nearly non existent, so I’m not sure what that means but over the last 12 hours the line is nearly flat. The MBP is just now “settling in” after lots of indexing Siri, DT, Drop Box, and Google Drive. Next week will be a true test.
It’s basically very similar to the processors on our phones. The phones never sleep, they are always one, only displays turns off. For computers they can turn-off some of the cores, but some remain running.
