A few weeks ago I purchased a Late 2014 Mac Mini, it's running High Sierra ( 10.13.6 )
and basically stock out of the box ( 4gigs RAM ).
The Energy Saver prefs are set to sleep the monitor but the Mini is still running ( I think ), HDD is set to not spin down.

It's incredibly slow to wake the monitor from just being way from it, compared to 10.6.8 it's glacial.
Pushing the mouse does nothing clicking the mouse, nada, I have to hit a key to wake the monitor.
Waking from Sleep is just as bad, only a keyboard key will wake the Mini.
Is this normal in 10.13.6 ?
Do need to buy a new keyboard and mouse ?

Not certain if this is relevant, but could be the issue is 10.13.6, not the Mini. Most here say it started with 10.13.6 -- before that, used to wake instantly, now taking ~7 seconds (but maybe yours is taking much longer even.)

WZZ, thanks for the links, I'm going to take a look in Terminal based on the CNET article.

fwiw my Mac Mini is the previous model ( late 2014 ) rather than the newly released one ( 2018 ) that the
apple discussion article is about.
