Amidst all the Mountain Lion excitement from yesterday, a few members of the Apple crowd were inadvertently forgotten -- yes, we're talking about 2011 / 2012 MacBook Air and Retina MBP owners looking for some extensive Power Nap action. Luckily for most of them, however, the Cupertino behemoth's quickly acted, outing a solution that'll see the efficacious napping feature make its way onto the aforementioned generations of MacBook Airs. Unfortunately, not all is good news, as that pixel-packed MacBook Pro will have to wait it out on the sidelines a little longer, with Apple saying an SMC update is "coming soon." Sound good? You'll find the download on the company's support page, linked down below to save you more troubles.

Update: According to MacRumors, Apple's pushed out an SMC update to Retina MacBook Pros that enables the Power Nap feature on these machines.
