HT5394 is Apple's doc About Power Nap in Mountain Lion that lists the Retina MacBook Pro and 2012/2011 MacBook Airs (with SMC firmware updates) supporting Power Nap but OWC has a blog post today that says their Aura SSD in 13" 2010 MacBook Airs supports Power Nap. (FYI: They updated the post later after more testing and found 2010 MBA Power Nap worked on some samples, but not others.)
(Wednesday's news had links to SMC updates for Mid-2012 and Mid-2011 MacBook Air.)
