    Mountain Lionís Power Nap Feature Brought To MacBook Air and Macbook Pro update

    Apple unveiled Power Nap in Mountain Lion during the WWDC conference in June.



    Canít find Mountain Lionís Power Nap feature anywhere on your MacBook Air? Apple has issued a new firmware update to bring the feature to 2011-2012 models. In case you didnít know, Power Nap is a system management feature in Mountain Lion that silently fetches your emails, iCloud data, software updates, etc. while your Mac sleeps. For Power Nap to work, your Mac must be connected to a power source. The Mountain Lion feature works only on Macs with an internal SSD drive, like the MacBook Air and mid-2012 MacBook Pro models.

    Power Nap doesnít seem to be included on all Macs running the newly-released Mountain Lion OS, but this new firmware update should restore any issues for MacBook Air users.

    Many MacBook Pro with Retina display users (myself included) donít have Power Nap under the Energy Saver settings in System Preferences either. While some have said that performing a clean install of Mountain Lion re-adds Power Nap on the mid-2012 MacBook Pro, results appear to be mixed. If the lack of Power Nap on other Mac models is indeed a widespread enough issue, expect Apple to release more firmware patches for Mountain Lion soon.

    Apple has issued a system management controller (SMC) update for the MacBook Pro with Retina display, enabling Power Nap support in OS X Mountain Lion.

    "This update fixes several sleep/wake issues to improve the stability of MacBook Pro with Retina display (Mid 2012) computers and is recommended for all users running OS X v10.7.4. It also enables Power Nap support for users running OS X v10.8 or later."

    The update is available via Apple's software download webpage, Software Update for those under OS X Lion and via the Mac App store for those with OS X Mountain Lion installed.

    Google Chrome browser updated for Apple's Retina display MacBook Pro



    Google Chrome users with Apple's next-generation 15-inch MacBook Pro can now take advantage of the high-resolution Retina display with their browser.

    Google announced on its Chrome blog on Tuesday that the latest "Stable" release of its browser adds support for high-resolution Mac Retina displays. The software is now available for download from Google's website.

    The search giant first announced in June that it was working on adding high-resolution support to its browser for Retina display Macs. Chrome stood out as one popular software choice that looked particularly poor on the Retina display MacBook Pro.

    Released at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June, the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display has a screen resolution of 2,880 by 1,800 pixels. Optimized versions of Apple's own software for OS X, including its Safari Web browser, became quickly available, while some third-party applications took more time.

    Chrome and Valve's Steam were singled out by AppleInsider in its own review of the MacBook Pro with Retina display. While Chrome has now been updated for the Retina display, Steam and other popular applications, like Adobe Photoshop, have yet to be updated.
