Apple has issued a System Management Controller (SMC) update for the MacBook Pro with Retina Display, which fixes several sleep and wake issues for users running Mac OS X 10.7.4 Lion. Additionally, like the SMC updates recently issued for MacBook Air models (see “MacBook Air SMC Updates 1.5 and 1.6,” 27 July 2012), this one enables Power Nap support when running 10.8 Mountain Lion.

Improve Apple Services with AirPort Base Stations
You can make iChat file transfers, iDisk, and Back to My Mac work better by turning on a setting with Apple AirPort base stations released starting in 2003. Launch AirPort Utility, select your base station, click Manual Setup, choose the Internet view, and click the NAT tab. Check the Enable NAT Port Mapping Protocol (NAT-PMP) box, and click Update. NAT-PMP lets your Mac OS X computer give Apple information to connect back into a network that's otherwise unreachable from the rest of the Internet. This speeds updates and makes connections work better for services run by Apple.
