My computer has problems waking up from sleep

My computer has problems waking up from sleep

This is a known issue that occurs when using NVMe SSDs with MacBooks from 2013 and 2014. However, you can circumvent this issue using the following steps! This will still allow for regular sleep, just not deep "hibernation" mode.

      Open up Terminal (open your Applications folder, then open the Utilities folder. Open the Terminal application.)

      Type in the following code in the Terminal:

            sudo pmset hibernatemode 0 standby 0

      Press enter (return). 

If that didn't work, try also doing the following:

      Open up Terminal (open your Applications folder, then open the Utilities folder. Open the Terminal application.)

      Type in the following code in the Terminal:

            sudo pmset autopoweroff 0

      Press enter (return).
