We have had many users ask about the extra long wake up time their computer goes through every morning before they can log on. This can be a problem in first block if you wait to get to class to turn on your computer (or your 8 am meeting!) This is an energy saver feature that was introduced with Yosemite.

Here is a preference you can set so your computer will wake up and be ready to go when you are!

  1. Choose Apple Menu > System Preferences then click Energy Saver

step 1

2. In the Energy Saver menu, select Schedule


3. Check the box for Start Up or Wake and make your choices for days and times.

Your computer will be awake by the first bell!
