Retina MacBook Pros get Power Nap
A firmware update released today has enabled the Power Nap feature to Apple's <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/263462==http://www.electronista.com/reviews/macbook-pro-with-retina-display-mid-2012.html" rel='nofollow'>Retina MacBook Pro</a>. The update follows a <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/263463==http://www.macnn.com/articles/12/07/26/firmware.patch.restores.feature.in.mountain.lion/" rel='nofollow'>similar patch</a> released yesterday for the MacBook Air. The update also fixes several sleep/wake issues and improves stability for Retina MacBook Pro models. <br><br>Power Nap enables SSD-equipped notebook Macs to sync and carry out other routine tasks without waking from a sleep state. PowerNap-equipped notebooks can back up to Time Machine and synch to iCloud thanks to the new feature. The feature also enables VPN on demand, Find My Mac, and corporate configuration profile updating, all while a notebook is sleeping. In order to preserve battery power, Power Nap will not activate if a machine's charge is at 30 percent or lower.

The new update for Retina MacBook Pro models is available at <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/263464==http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1559" rel='nofollow'>Apple's site</a>, as are updates for <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/263465==http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1558" rel='nofollow'>2012</a> and <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/263466==http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1560" rel='nofollow'>2011</a> MacBook Air models.

I really wish they would enable this for the MBP with SSD that Apple ships. Doesn't seem right.

The apple logo represents a fishhook for a reason... Once you bite, ur $hit outta luck unless you got real skills son. The 13" white mid 2010 macbook w/ nVidia 320M is the best macbook ever made.... no aluminum to choke the wireless signal, 10hr battery, loud & clear internal speaker, tri-wing adjustable inertia glass trackpad (like the new stuff), two internal SATA 3.0Gb ports (you don't need anything faster)... try this combination on any other mac portables with 10hr battery life; you can find it in a true matte LED too if you look deeper. Call me lucky

You can always download NoSleep, and tolerate going clamshell instead.
