Do I need another HD Cable?
When I turn my MBP on from sleep, it takes ~10-15 minutes to fully wake up every time I open the lid. I knew about the HD cable problem and replaced it when I got the machine, but I am wondering if I need to try a cable from a different vendor or if the problem is related to something else.
When I replaced the drive cable, I secured the cable with Kapton tape and padded the parts where it is most prone to wear (optical drive, chassis) and added some additional protective tape to the cable itself to be sure it won’t fail as easily. While I think the cable is fine, I also know this is an infamous issue with these machines and am not overlooking it.
I am running mine with the original 4GB/500GB HDD setup on High Sierra (which I really should upgrade, but am holding off on until we have an October announcement from Apple), so it may be possible the limited RAM and stock SATA II HD are where my performance issues lie.
As proof I managed to avoid APFS on this High Sierra install, I have posted a photo. In addition, I have posted photos of the drive test and it came out fine. They may be out of order.
