It was released on 29 May 2014 in North America for the PC. The PlayStation 4 version was released on 10 December 2015 whilst the Xbox One version was released on 3 June 2016.

Later that night, Teddy is taken away from David by an unseen force. David goes after it and finds Teddy inside a washing machine. He unplugs it and takes him out. Teddy realizes that something is not right and that they must find Zoey. Along the way, they encounter a shadowy figure called Harald. The search leads them to discover a slide that takes them to a small playhouse within a cavern that is presumably under the house, and the door found inside it leads them into a journey through several surreal environments, consisting of an underground playground, a dilapidated mansion that has merged with a marshy forest, and a bizarre series of corridors created by hundreds of closets. Teddy instructs David to find four memories he shared with Zoey that will lead them to her. The memories take the forms of four objects: Her pendant from her necklace shown at the start of the game, the music box she plays to put him to sleep at night, the storybook, and the pink elephant. Throughout the search, David is pursued by a large, feminine, troll-like monster named Hydra and a creature with glowing white eyes named Heap, who has a coat as a body like the ones in David's closet earlier.
In this MacBook-only sleep mode, before the Mac is put to sleep, the startup drive saves data from the RAM for safekeeping. The only difference between the sleep and hibernation modes is that hibernation turns off the RAM when a Mac is sleeping, which is why it needs to copy data from it first.
Unlike the simple sleep mode above, this mode is safe because it copies the RAM contents to the startup drive before your Mac goes to sleep, like in hibernation mode. This allows you to recover your data in case of battery failure, hardware damage, or any other unfortunate events that can affect your Mac.
Standby is the next stage that comes after a certain time of simple sleep. Apple computers released in 2013 or later go into standby mode after about three hours of sleep, while older Macs enter standby after about an hour of sleep.
By default, your Mac uses the best sleep mode for its particular hardware, carefully balancing power conservation and data protection. If you change the sleep mode, you could end up using more power while your Mac is asleep. You might even lose your unsaved data.
Sleep tracking in watchOS 9 now includes sleep stages, allowing users to detect when users are in REM, Core, or Deep sleep. Sleep stage data is available in the Sleep app and can be viewed in more detail in the Health app on iPhone.
Apple enhanced the built-in Sleep app on the Apple Watch in a big way in watchOS 9, introducing Sleep Stages. With Sleep Stages, the Apple Watch is able to tell you how much time you spent in REM, Core, or Deep sleep during the night, along with the amount of time that you were awake.
For those who have been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, Apple has added a new AFib History option that can track it. With AFib History, you can see an estimate of how frequently your heart has arrhythmia, and you can see how factors like sleep, exercise, and weight can affect AFib.
Also, Windows and macOS and your apps tend to slow down and become a bit unreliable after a few days without being shut down. This can be due to its memory filling up or to the amount of temporary files created, among other reasons. That's why you should still reboot your PC every so often.
Some MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and MacBook users may have noticed their computers are draining battery even when the Mac is sleeping and not in use. This seems like a peculiar issue, but it turns out there there may be an explanation.
Some apps and command line tools specifically prevent sleep, so determining which and why is important. You can use the command line and pmset to figure this out, or Activity Monitor, which easier for most users.
Some MacBook Pro and MacBook Air laptops support a feature called Power Nap, which allows the Mac to check email and get notifications while it should be asleep. Turning this off may resolve some battery draining while sleeping issues, particularly if you get a lot of emails and notifications.
Disabling Enhanced NotificationsSome Macs also use a feature called Enhanced Notifications to deliver notifications when the display is sleeping, you can turn those off which may ameliorate battery draining when the Mac should be sleeping as well.
The Messages app keeps itself refreshed and updated with new sent and received messages, and some Mac users have noticed this appears to be related to their Mac battery draining when the computer is sleeping. Quitting Messages before sleeping the Mac has functioned as a workaround for some users.
There are a few helpful commands to refer to that may lead you to discover the reason, process, or app that is causing the Mac to wake from sleep. You can refer to these as needed, and it may be helpful to run each command separately to investigate the Macbook battery draining issue.
Have you experienced any issues with your MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or MacBook draining battery while the computer is sleeping, or otherwise not in use? Did you find a solution? Did the tips mentioned here help? Share with us your own experiences in the comments.
The solution is to turn off Screen Time in System Settings which is useless for 90% of users. Not only does it solve sleep drain, but the MBP battery in use improves dramatically like the day I bought it. The issue was noticeable in both Ventura and Monterey.

I'm using TeamViewer (v. 15.26.4) to connect from my Android phone to my MacBook Pro (running OS 12.1) and it works perfectly fine when my computer is awake, the problem is when my computer goes to sleep I can't connect to it. On my previous Mac I somehow set it to wake up when it was sleeping and accept incoming connections, but I don't know how to do that now for it to work. Please help. How can I get this to successfully work?
?Note: portable Macs have two separate settings options - Battery (1) and Adapter (2). Be aware that setting higher time-frames for overall sleep of the device can result in more battery usage. When relying on adapter, the battery would be unaffected.
First up - macOS actually has two separate forms of sleep - Computer (3) and Display (4). When the computer is put in sleep mode, this essentially puts the device into 'hibernation'. If the time frame for the whole machine going to sleep is set at a lower time, this could prevent you from simply requesting connection to the device when asleep - not to say it would be impossible to wake such a device - you would simply need to use TeamViewer's Wake-on-LAN feature to wake such a device.
My recommendation: When on power supply, I set my computer sleep time much higher than the time it takes for the display to go to sleep. Such unattended connections are usually not needed when running on battery (as the device is usually with me), so I keep these settings for optimal battery efficiency. The option for Computer Sleep alone may not prevent connections, however, which brings up the next setting.
Next up is the first check-box: Put hard disk(s) to sleep when possible (5). This feature theoretically helps save some battery life (depending on the type of drive in the device), but also means that when the computer finally goes to sleep it will also essentially turn off the drives as well. This will render the device unable to connect without such a feature as Wake-on-LAN.
The last option is Wake for Network Access (6) - which allows the device to wake up if a service on the device is requested. In cases where the device is not fully asleep, this option should ensure you can make a connection to the device even when it is 'sleeping'. Definitely ensure this one is checked!
I tested with my own Mac devices and was unable to replicate an issue as described in our initial conversations. If the option Prevent your Mac from automatically sleeping when display is off is checked, and the device is not actually in Sleep mode, then connections to the device were still possible.
Yes, my Mac seems to go into into Sleep Mode and require a password to unlock again after a while, even though I have Prevent your Mac from automatically sleeping when display is off is checked for some reason. And I can't use Wake-on-LAN because it requires a hardwired connection, and the new 2021/2022 16" MacBook Pro with the M1 Max processor doesn't have an ethernet port, so there is no way to hardwire it in unless I purchase a USC C ethernet adapter; the only native option is to connect wirelessly. What other options do I have? 2b1af7f3a8
