How To Completely Shut Down Macbook Air

Well, Apple does not recommend leaving your portable plugged in all the time, as for a lithium-based battery, it's important to keep the electrons in it moving occasionally. MacBook / Pro, though, are designed to deliver up to 1000 full charge and discharge cycles before it reaches 80% of its original capacity.

A charge cycle means using all of the battery’s power, but that doesn’t necessarily mean a single charge. For instance, you could listen to your iPod for a few hours one day, using half its power, and then recharge it fully. If you did the same thing the next day, it would count as one charge cycle, not two, so you may take several days to complete a cycle. Each time you complete a charge cycle, it diminishes battery capacity slightly.

Since 2009-2010 laptops carry a technology called Adaptive Charging which basically is a chip within the battery that talks to its cells monitoring everything from charge level to temperature. The chip relays this information to the computer, which uses an advanced algorithm to determine the optimal charging current. Adaptive Charging reduces the wear and tear on the battery giving it a lifespan of up to 5 years.

How To Turn Your Mac On And Off

So, I'll actually won't worry that much about the battery. Just try not to keep it plugged all the time, and remember to do a full charge cycle at least once per month.

MacBook Air Shut Down. Mar 10, 2021 I used Macbook Air’s exclusively for years but gave up on them for awhile. I recently tried a new Macbook Air 2019, hoping the keyboard issues were behind. Sadly even after only a week and half of use I started to feel like I would never get used to the shallow keyboard. On top of that one key already showed some issues registering. Apr 09, 2021 That would be great, but running Mojave on a 2015 MacBook Pro the fans run full speed all night long! Even after putting the computer to sleep. I’ll come back in the morning and I can hear them from down the hall. I’ve resorted to shutting down just to put an end to that. It wasn’t always that way. An SMC reset hasn’t made a difference.
