MacBook Pro With Retina Display Receives Power Nap

Available exclusively for the users who upgraded to Mac OS X Mountain Lion, Power Nap allows any Apple computer that is in stand by to automatically install the updates for the operating system. Moreover, in the same time the system syncronizes the content in Calendar, Contacts, Mail, Notes and Alerts.

Once Power Nap makes the sync, the devices running on iOS and the Mac machines on OS X 10.8 are also syncing the documents in iCloud, the computer’s location via Find My Mac app and the pictures in Photo Stream. If you were inspired enough to have a Time Machine server in your house, Power Nap will also help you back-up the system.

As you probably guessed, the new Power Nap only works when the computer is plugged in the power outlet. Fortunately, by accessing the Energy Save panel you can also activate the service when your portable system is not connected to a power source.

If you were lucky enough to get your hands on a MacBook Pro Retina Display, but you haven’t installed Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, the new SMC (System Management Controller) update will still be available for your machine. For the Lion users, the Power Nap service comes with improved stability and fixed bugs, especially those that were affecting the sandby – turned on switches.

The new update for the MacBook Pro with Retina Display owners is available in Mac App Store as of now, and a similar version of the update developed for the MacBook Air machines was launched, subject to the same terms, in the beginning of the last week.
