Is your NVRAM or PRAM corrupted on your Mac?

corrupted NVRAM on your Mac

Understanding PRAM?  To understand PRAM we need to talk about RAM for a minute – Random access memory (RAM) is often confused with hard drive storage space. RAM consist of chips on your logic board that stores active application and processes currently in use by your computer. For example everything you see on your display when you Mac boots up is stored in RAM. Every application you click on like safari, Outlook etc. is stored in RAM. However once you close the application, it leaves the RAM and frees up memory for other application to use. Read more >>>

Save your MacBook Pro battery life

Have you noticed that your MacBook is running out of battery a lot sooner then it use to? Here are some tips to maximize and monitor the energy use on your Mac.

First of all you need to establish a base line

Go to the Apple Website, and look at what your model battery life is rated for, right out of the box. Of course, that goes without saying, but the newer the MacBook, the longer the battery should last. The Battery life defers greatly on the model and CPU Platform you are using. For example if you are using the Intel platform for your 13 or 16 inch MacBook Pro, you should expect somewhere around 10 to 11 Hrs. of life. On the other hand if your MacBook is using the latest Apple M1 Chip, you should expect upward of 17 hours of uninterrupted work or videos streaming.

Apple Baseline

We should note that Apple baseline estimates are based on reduced screen brightness and light internet load. If you constantly use your screen on full brightness, while transcoding videos and downloading Gigs of data, your battery life will be substantially reduced. Another factor you should account for is age. Unfortunately, like every other battery powered device, you can expect the battery life to decrease as your Mac gets older. But do not despair there are ways to minimize this.

Step 1: Find out what app is using up your battery
  • Open activity monitor > (Open Finder, click on Applications then scroll down to the Utilities folder)
  • Select the CPU tab, and look for any application that is using a high percentage of CPU, in excess of %50. If it’s a program like mail, or Safari, try to close the program normally. If the App it’s not cooperating, highlight the process and click on the X on the toolbar to quit the process.

Step 2: Change the energy saver Preferences
  • From you desktop, click on the Apple on your toolbar, then choose System Preferences.
  • Open Energy Saver
  • Click on the battery tab and slide the cursor to the left next to "Computer Sleep" or “Turn display off after”. The lower the number, the more power you will preserve.
  • Put a checkmark next to “Put the hard disk to sleep when possible” and “Slightly dim the display while on battery power”

MacBook Energy Saver App

Step 3: Use Dark mode

If your operating system is Mojave or newer, you can use dark mode to save energy. It takes more energy to display white colors then dark ones. To turn on “Dark Mode” follow these steps.

  • Open systems preferences (see above)
  • Click on General
  • Click on Dark
Step 4: Check for malware or viruses

In the past, there has been issues with malware running constantly in the background, using high CPU cycles and draining the battery. This issue is more prominent on Windows platform but Macs are not immune to it.

Don’t keep it plugged in

Keep you battery healthy by not keeping your MacBook plugged in at all time. For a battery to stay healthy, it needs to be discharged on a regular basis. Not doing so, will overheat the battery, and over time cause it to swell and cause permanent damage.

Reset SMS (System Management Controller)

This reset will return your hardware settings to default value, and re-evaluate the battery settings.

Some models uses different procedure, so check the Apple tech support website to find out what works for your device. Here is the most common way to do it.

Steps to reset the SMC
  • Shut down your MacBook
  • Connect the power adapter
  • Hold down the Control, Shift, Option and the Power button for 10 seconds
  • Release all the keys at the same time

After resetting the System management Controller, press the power button, and turn on your Mac like you normally would.
