[HELP] E6540 High Sierra install

Recommended Posts

By either hitting a key on the keyboard , clicking the buttons next to the touch pad and pressing the power key. Normally when the laptop is asleep the power led glows off and on , this isn't happening?

 

Thanks for your quick reply

If the power LED doesn't blink,  then it's not sleeping.

So if you click on Sleep from the Apple Menu, does the screen just go blank?

Can you run this command and post the output?

 

log show --style syslog | fgrep "Wake reason"

I ran the command however I am not sure where too look for the output?

 

Also if I select sleep from the apple menu it will goto sleep properly and wake properly, it appears the problem arises when I select say 5 minutes to goto sleep in Energy Saver system preferences.

when you run the command on the terminal, it should spit out the result in the same window

 

Not sure what you mean. When you set it to go to sleep say 5 minutes, what happens?

Make sure you don't touch the keyboard or touchpad during the entire 5 mins. Sleep will be interrupted if movement occurred.
