Energy Settings vs Rendering... problem in Mountain Lion and CS6?

May 26, 2013 7:08 PM

I'm using AE CS6 off the Creative Cloud for the first time with Mountain Lion 10.8.3.


Previously I've been working in Lion with CS5. I do intensive, long renders and in the past, anytime the computer was actively processing, it would never put it's hard drive to sleep. But, this morning, with the new OS and sofware, I discovered the render had simply paused when the energy saver kicked in. The hard drive had stopped.


Obviously I can turn off the energy save setting, but is this a Mountain Lion bug? I really appreciated before that I could hit a 12 hour render, and then if I was elsewhere, I would know that the computer would go into sleep mode upon completion of the render. Trying to stay green.

    This seems like a good question for Apple.

    I've been using Mountain Lion for a very long time with CS6 and have not seen this except when I've switched out of AE to another app, then walked away. If I walk away from a render without switching apps or if I'm rendering from the Adobe Media Encoder I have not seen this behavior.
