How to speed up your mac wake-up time from hibernate sleep

Are you running an Apple macbook, mini or iMac?
You may have noticed it's quick to load when you leave it alone for half an hour after sleep, but leave it alone for over an hour and well.. it takes a little longer for it to react.

So this isn't so much as a problem, but is a design feature. Some may say an annoying design feature.
The cause is due to the machine going into hibernation mode after a set period of time. Hibernation is designed to put the computer into a deeper version of a sleep state after an hour of non-use. It does this by copying the contents of your RAM to your hard drive and then powering most of its internal devices down. When powering back on, it then writes the entire contents copied to the hard drive back to the RAM. Obviously the more that is in use, the longer it takes for the machine to become live again.

Hibernation on an SSD drive, this is not recommended, as performing more writes to the drive will descrease it's life expectancy. You can also completely disable hibernation mode if you wish. This is your choice and we will show you how to do this as well. But beware, on a laptop, sleep mode will use more of your battery life then hibernation mode. If the battery runs out in this time, any data open and not saved will be lost.

There is a simple hack to change the hibernation mode settings, but beware it will consume more power, so use caution when running on a laptop.
As always this nifty little trick will improve performance, but any changes you perform are done at your own risk. If you are not sure what you are doing, then please call us if you are on one of our contracts or seek professional assistance.

OK, let's begin.

To change the hibernation time from an hour to a longer period, we will first need to oepn a terminal window on your mac.

To open the terminal window, you can go to Finder, open Applications, scroll down to Utilities, and locate Terminal within the utilities.
Alternatively you can also press the "cmd" + "space" keys at the same time to open spotlight in the top right had corner of your screen. Type Terminal and press click on the result for Terminal (it will have a black square next to it).

In the terminal we will enter the following commands:

sudo pmset -a standbydelay 3600

Where 3600 will equal 12 hours. This will mean that your machine will not go into hibernation mode unless not used for more than 12 hours.
You can change this number to suit for how many hours you require, where an hour is 300.
When entering this command, you will be requested to enter your password to complete the command

There shouldn't be much of a battery life tradeoff by prolonging how long it takes standby mode to kick in. If you charge your MacBook every day, then you shouldn't need anything more than 24 hours. The best thing to do is play around with it and find the best timing for your daily schedule.

If you would prefer to completely disable hibernation mode, then type the following command into the terminal window:

First we must make a note of the current settings. Enter the command below to make a backup of your settings to the desktop in a file called current_hibernate_mode.txt

sudo pmset -g | grep hibernatemode > ~/Desktop/current_hibernate_mode.txt

You can also see the current setting within the terminal by running the following command:

sudo pmset -g | grep hibernatemode

We will then run the below command to turn off hibernation mode.

sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0

Finally, if your machine was set to mode 3 or 7, we will recover some drive space by running the following commands:

cd /var/vm

sudo rm sleepimage

This will remove the old sleep file from the hard drive.
If you ever return to the new style sleep mode, the sleepimage file will be automatically recreated when you execute the sudo pmset command—yes, it creates the file as soon as you execute the command, not the first time you put the machine to sleep.

For reference, the following hibernate modes are available;
  • 0 - Old style sleep mode, with RAM powered on while sleeping, safe sleep disabled, and super-fast wake.
  • 1 - Hibernation mode, with RAM contents written to disk, system totally shut down while "sleeping," and slower wake up, due to reading the contents of RAM off the hard drive.
  • 3 - The default mode on machines introduced since about fall 2005. RAM is powered on while sleeping, but RAM contents are also written to disk before sleeping. In the event of total power loss, the system enters hibernation mode automatically.
  • 5 - This is the same as mode 1, but it's for those using secure virtual memory (in System Preferences -> Security).
  • 7 - This is the same as mode 3, but it's for those using secure virtual memory.

Project Services
Have you already got an IT team?

We understand, we get that a lot. Who doesn't?
The thing is, sometimes your current support services team may be very effective at supporting your desktops and office machines, they are probably even quite capable of working with server environments and changing basic settings. But sometimes that's not always enough. Sometimes there's that new install, or migration, or software update that they are not too sure about?

Don't worry, now it's our time to shine.

Our team have had a plethora of experience working in different environments with different conifgurations. It's because of this experience we have a lot of historic knowledge of computers and their systems, meaning we can work on and help resolve tasks others can't.

We offer these project management services to you.
Take us on as a consultant, we will come in, survey your netowkr, decide on the best way of completing the given task co-operatively with your current support team, document the steps and create a project plan.
You can then ask us to complete the install for you, or if your current team is happy with the steps and planning, roll it out themselves.

At the end of the project, we will hand over all documentation and notes, give a full guide to the staff who will be maintaining the systems and make sure you personally are happy with how everything has been completed.

It's our main area of expertise, we have been doing it for many clients over the years and it allows us to stay up with the latest technologies to make your project go as smoothly as possible.

We have worked with many companies in the past on some of their bigger projects. A small example of some we have done below:
  • Members of our services team completed a virtualisation project, consolidating and migrating 18 servers into a clustered virtualisation environment for Surrey Cricket Club (The Oval)
  • Members of our services team have worked with QinetiQ, working on projects for some of their renowned clients.
  • Members of our services team have worked alongsude well known brands such as The Collective, implementing hosted cloud solutions and installing all of their systems infrastructure.
  • Members of our services team have worked alongside the installations team in setting up a new office for Sullivan & Worcester, a high profile American firm of solicitors, setting up new offices in London. Our employee aided in consultation of their racks and power management. Technical documentation and Visio diagrams were provided after install.
  • We have performed countless other migrations and installations for many satisfied clients in both Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac and Linux server. We have also implemented virtualisation systems using VMWare and HyperV.

No job is too big or too small for our team. So ask us what we can do for you.
Managed Support
Our managed support allows you to essentially forget about your computer and technology systems and leave the worrying to us.
There is nothing more pleasing then the day you finally realise, you haven't had to think about major systems failures or data loss, because everything is just running as it should be, allowing you to get on with your day.

By using INSPYREone as your managed support provider, we will regularly maintain your systems, ensuring stability, security and overall performance of your servers and employees machines.

We offer several contract options for managed support. You specify the amount of days you would prefer to see us on-site doing a full systems overview and helping out any issues your employees may have.
We don't stop there though. You can then decide if you would like to continue that level of service by adding on unlimited remote support and systems monitoring options to your package for a fixed monthly cost.
We don't like limiting your choices, so you can tell us exactly what you want.

If you would like more information on our packages and what we will do for you, then please do get in touch through our contact page.
Managed Services
Fed up of maintaining that internet contract, or having to call another utilities provider because your telephones no longer work. Well don't.

With managed services from INSPYREone, we can take control of your third party technology providers and manage them as one.
We will find you the best deals combined with reliability. Because we know, reliability and peace of mind of service are worth a lot more in the cost effectiveness battle. But that doesn't mean a balance shouldn't be in play.
The services we use are known to us and have been proven in the field with clients big and small alike.

So join the revolution.
Take that last final moment to sit on the phone for an hour to your providers support team and tell them what you really think of their service. Because with us, you'll get through straight away and we will be hot on the tails of anyone that gives us downtime.

INSPYREone are leading the revolt against bad service! Align with us for now to show that we no longer want connection failures, lack of service, and a call centre who can only turn the power off and on*.

*(Turning power off and on is a vital part of INSPYREtech standard operating procedure and has been known to fix all and every problem come across. Please do not try this if piloting commercial airlines!)
Cloud Computing
Data is as importnt as ever in today's world, yet the cost of maintaining and running services seems to go ever up. Manufacturuer warranties, replacement parts, even the unseen enemy to costs, power consumption. All these add to ever increasing costs and not enough solutions.

Now there's a solution.
Finally the internet has caught up. With broadband speeds being available in almost every household in the country now, why be stuck to a desk when you can have freedom!!

Our cloud computing services afford you that opportunity.
Work at your work desktop from a laptop in the garden? No problem.
In fact, no longer even want that desktop computer in the office? It's gone.
What do we need that server for, gathering dust and wasting power? You don't.

We can get you set up with a private cloud based server and then configure your users to run their desktops straight from the internet.
No longer do you need to dedicate office space to a large tower that sounds like a jet taking off.
No longer do you need to run expensive air coniditioning 24/7, just to keep those power sucking monsters cool.

By moving your services to the world of cloud, your systems will be kept constantly up to date, you will have the latest software of your choosing running in the background, and you will be able to work from the garden on your beautiful little mac laptop!! *gasps for berathe*.
The happy clients we have set this up for say they never plan to look back.

We are leading a lot of mini revolutions here at INSPYREone, but this one is going to change the world. THis is definitely one you'll want to join us on.
Uh, oh. Server number 5 has had its motherboard blown out again. That's not good.
Luckily we have 24/7, 4 hour business critical support. Thank goodness we paid through the nose for that, this is the fourth time this year that servers gone down and it runs all our vital database services, but it's surprising it's done so well for an 8 year old box.
So four hours to get an engineer here with a replacement, a two hour swap out, power the server back on and let's see how much data we lost and if we need to perform a full systems state recovery. Only 12 hours down this time around, but it could've been so much worse don't you think?

Sound like a familiar story?

It's all too familiar to us. And yes. It could've been a lot worse. 4 hour business critical isn't the best value for money, we know. But it can be a life saver.
But why does it need to be a life saver in the first place?

We want to introduce you to virtualisation.

What is it and what are the benefits I hear you say?

Well, with virtualisation, we can give that 8 year old tower, coughing up its last dusty coughs a whole new lease of life.
  • We will migrate all of those old boxes onto brand new infrastructure, running in a clustered environment.
  • We can provision new servers as quickly as clicking the new button.
  • We can give those old machines access to speedier and more disk space without the risk of adding new physical drives.
  • We can migrate services onto faster more powerful machines, without the need to purchase more hardware every time
  • Continuity of services. By using the latest technology, in the event of a critical failure, all servers are automatically migrated to the next resource available server almost instantaneously. Next time that motherboard goes out, you won't even know. The most impressive part of the entire procedure is when you believe we didn't do anything at all.
  • We can fully utilise the power consumption of a machine by monitoring memory and processor use, adjusting to each server as required. We did this for one client and got 13 servers down running in a virtualised cluster, using less than a gigabyte of memory and 800mhz of wound up CPU time. These figures may sound like nothing, but the cost saving in power consumption on their bills from turning 13 energy unfriendly towers was more than enough to make them smile.

I don't really think we need to say anything else.
The only question you are probably asking yourself now is why nobody told you about this before?
That 4 hour business critical support and 12 hour downtime is looking a little silly now isn't it?

Get in touch on the contact page to get all the information you need.
Telephones, you know what they do, but they don't really change do they?

This is where I go, "Well, you'd be wrong", well I'm not going to do that...

OK I kind of am, but Don't just let me convince you, here's a very informative article on modern telephony for further reading afterwards: What Can VOIP do for you?

But before you go.. and come back of course. Here's a quick summary of some of the benefits of our phone systems.
  • Cost. Isn't that what everyone wants to hear? So you already have the internet, well why now pay to rent a phone line? Why pay extortionate mobile and overseas rates? By using our hosted PBX services you don't.
  • Portability. You can have a handset at home and a handset at the office. Simply login to either device where ever you are and all your direct line calls will come to you.
  • Not good enough? Well, got a smart phone? Stick a softphone on it and you can even log on from there. Use your telephony service minutes on your mobile, have your direct line call you when you're travelling and out of the office. Never miss that important call.
  • All the kit required to run it is hosted by us. No need to maintain it or pay out the nose to set it up. Simply tell us how many users you want and we'll get you a number sorted, or transferred if you already have one, the handsets you need and get you connected.
  • Transfer or get transferred calls internally to other office users from home, abroad or your mobile. It's your virtual telephony solution.

So there's a quick summary of some of the benefits why we love the system. Now if you're still not convinced, go have a quick read at the article and see what others are saying.

If you know you already want it, and who wouldn't? Then get in touch with us through our contact page.
Business Continuity
Can you imagine the thought of losing even the slightest bit of client data from your systems? Even just that one inconsequential file, suddenly may have a vital piece of information that you forgot about?

We have and it terrifies us.
We don't intend on scare mongering you, that's not us. But we do want you to consider every possibility, then once you've considered it, get us to fix it. Because that's what we do best.

In today's world, data is a big thing. Everything is stored electronically, and to lose it is as bad as ever.
With business continuity, we will make sure your systems are ready for all eventualities. Whether it's something as simple as a single server failure, we want to make sure you are back up with minimal downtime in a way that suits you best.

We can offer many redundant technology solutions and many backup alternatives, be it backing your data up to the cloud, or to one of our data centres. Whatever you decide, make sure that your systems never let you down.

Contact us for more information and consultation today through the contact page.
Network Security
Lots of people take security lightly. Well there's some things you can do to change that.

A lack of security is a big risk within the industry. Here at INSPYREone we have been to many prospective client sites to find their firewalls and security protocols they thought they had in place left completely open.
A lot of the time people forget you want the door locked from both sides, not one way, because information getting out, can be just as bad as information getting in.

We want to ensure the integrity of your systems, and will lock down wireless networks, create virtual LANs where possible to secure guest access from your internal communications, create secure firewall policies to stop the unlikely intrusion into your own internal network from infecting critical functions like the server. All of these little security holes lead to vulnerabilities. A risk not work taking.

Get INSPYREone to check over your network security and make sure it is set up properly.
Office Install & Cabling
Your office is the most important place of work, so we want to make sure it's functional for you.

INSPYREone have specialists designed to get your new offices designed exactly as you want.
We can do all the hard work of getting the place ready to move into, including the design and decoration, floor ports and patching into a rack cabinet, so when you need it most, it's already there.

Have a look below to see what we can do for you.

Office Move & Relocation
Moving into your new or out of your old offices can be a daunting task that can phase the best of us. Not only do you have to worry about those last minute contract clauses and when the delivery crew will arrive to pack the last of those boxes that still aren't ready to go, the last thing you want to worry about is getting your systems up and running with next to no downtime.

Don't worry, this is where we come in.
Leave the hard work to us and we'll recommend and arrange everything you need with you. After that we'll get it all installed and services configured, so when you walk in on Monday morning, you'll have nothing more to worry about then where your pens will go?
Office Fit-outs
A managed services company that does office fit-outs?
Weird isn't it, but we do.

We have a dedicated team to getting you an office that's fit for a king.
With our expertise we will get a 3d design of your offices planned and built, we will then consult with you for floor and wall colours, the furniture you want, seperating walls and then get the contractors in to get it all in place. And because we specialise in computers as well, we know that getting the patch ports in the right place is just as important as the decor.

Your office is one of the most important spaces, it not only defines you but is the thing you walk into in the morning and think, I love it here!
Well we want you and your employees to feel like that every morning.

Design your dream office with us, get in contact today.
Teledata Cabling / Floor Ports
Want to plug another phone or computer in on the desk?
Easy, just open the floor ports and patch into a teledata point.

Easy isn't it?
But those teledata points don't just come from nowhere. They need to be run and patched back to your rack cabinet and patch panel. So who does that?

Well it's lucky you're here, because INSPYREone can get all of that pesky cabling done for you.
We won't talk too much about it, as cabling isn't the most interesting thing in the world. What you want to know is that when you need another port, it's there and waiting.

Get in contact today to tell us what you want and get more details.
Racking & Patching
Those computers have to communicate with something and those cables they use have to go somewhere.

The rack cabinet is a generally overlooked part of networking and computing in general, and yet it does so much for us.
A bit like all the veins in your body, the life blood of data communication runs through those fibre and copper cables. So they really should be looked after.

INSPYREone will manage all of your patching and cabling routes, we will ensure the equipment in the rack is in optimal positioning to decrease cable runs. We will also minimise the possibility of network loops (which can be disastrous and we have seen it take down entire networks before), through simplicity.

We don't just do all of this because it's aesthetically pleasing to keep a rack in tip-top shape. It has benefits that far outweight what you would expect to your systems stability as well.
By keeping them clean and running freely, not only is it easier to manage, allowing us to add new patch runs quickly, but it also increases the airflow to your systems, prolonging your equipments lifespan and using less power and energy to keep them running cool. But the most important things of all, health and safety is improved by reducing trip hazards and fire risks are dropped by removing the hazards of dust collection. So it looks good and saves on energy costs. Sounds like it's a no-brainer to us.

Some of the nightmare scenarios we've seen at INSPYREone aren't pretty, but we're here to turn those nightmares around.
Take a look at an example of what we mean below.

If you think that reminds you of your patch cabinets, then think of us and we'll get them competing for tidiest cabinet of the year by the time we're finished.
Get in contact now and ask us for details.
Want something cool?
Inspiration didn't come to us overnight, but together we can make something out of nothing.

We believe that two heads together work better than one, so by that logic more heads means more inspiration and an even brighter light bulb. Working with our design team will give you the light that stands out.

Don't believe us? Well take a look around. Everything on this site you are using right now was all done and tasked by our in-house design team.
Impressive isn't it? Our slightly swayed opinion thinks so and we want to do the same for you.

So if it's branding, a website, or even a web database built with SQL backend, we're the design team you need!

Business Branding
Branding is an important part of any company. Without the right look, how will you go about getting noticed?

We here at INSPYREone have a dedicated design team and they have a passion, a need if you will, to want to design. We ask of you not to leave them hanging. Give them a challenge and not only will they thank us, but they'll make you something amazing that will stand out from the crowd. If anything everyone wins.

Company branding and colour is important, but it's also quite a tricky thing to get right, because there is often so many things your branding needs to go onto, yet none of those things are the same shape. All of these things need designing, but they all need to look the same. Well our designers can make sure that all of those things are considered for you.

Here's an example of a few of the items we often forget need branding too:
  • Company logo
  • Website Icon (especially important to mark your websites tab out from the rest)
  • Social media logos and backgrounds
  • Business cards
  • Headed paper
  • Flyers
  • Publicity materials
Sometimes it's good to be different. Sometimes different is new.

There's never a better time to get a website refresh.
Maybe you've had your current website for a few years now? Maybe your business has developed beyond where you started? Maybe you want a cleaner, sleeker, friendlier interface?

Fashion trends change, and the same happens in the world of the internet. Nobody wants a MySpace page anymore, so take a good look at your current website and think to yourself if that still appeals to your target audience.

If you have decided it's time to dump the old look and go for the new fancy style on the internet super high street, then we will give you the look you need.

Our specialists can't wait to help you out, so get in touch and love your new style.
