Monitors With Apple Macs and Sleep Issues

14th September 2015 Colour Accurate Monitors


If you're having an issue with your monitor not waking from sleep properly, it is often cable related - particularly with Apple Macs.

Your Mini-DisplayPort Cable and/or Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort adapter must be fully VESA 1.1a compliant. Read this support note from Apple here.

We have extensively tested cables, and we carry both a display port cable (2m) and an adaptor that should generally solve the issue and a far more reliable than Apple's own options.
