    New to iMac (or any Apple computer for that matter). What would be the ideal energy saver settings? I awoke this morning and was not able to wake it up and I panicked and ended up unplugging it. Wondering what happened.

    Here are where I keep mine set at. The only time I ever change them is when I have to update the OS. I then max them out while the upgrade happens then restore them back to default. That way I don't have to babysit the computer.

    If you are viewing it through Tapatalk that's possible. Try the iMore app or view it on your computer. It will show for sure on your computer.

    I’m using the iMore forums app. I’ll try one of those other suggestions as soon as I can.

    Is there another way to wake a MAC other than clicking the mouse or tapping the space bar?

    What other way do you want to wake it?
    On the iMac, you can touch any key on the keyboard to wake it. On a newer MacBook Pro, just open it up.

    That’s what I’m asking. Being unable to wake it is what prompted this post. I would touch any key but it would not wake. Didn’t know what else to do so I reluctantly unplugged it.

    Mine are set to default with Power Nap unchecked. That always forces my iMac to restart with an error. Other than that, I’ve had instances where the screen saver would not stop, therefore forcing me to shut the iMac off.

    Have you tried waking it with the power switch? I’ve also set my iMac to not come back from sleep using Bluetooth devices. They kept waking it randomly before that.
