Applications :: Setting Apps To "Check For Updates Automatically"?

Sep 19, 2010

I have almost all my apps set to check for updates automatically. Most of them will most likely not update for a while. Does having all my apps set to update automatically slow down the computer. Seems like them checking every time will put a dent in my cpu usage.

OS X :: Software Update Failed To Check For Updates?

Mar 22, 2010

I've been working on a FireWired External Drive and Software update installed some SnowLeopard/midi/audio updates on the external drive. I then restarted going into the Mother ship that also has SnowLeopard to bring that up to date.

When i checked for updates using the software update there is message that sezs :

"Failed to check for update. There was a problem communicating with the web proxy server (HTTP)."

I am on line posting this message so it can't be an Internet server problem on the Mother ship ( the main Macintosh hard drive ).

What does that message really mean and how do i fix that?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Get Imac To Stop Automatically Searching For Updates

Mar 15, 2012

I cannot get my imac to stop automatically searching for updates. I set preferences to monthly, or turn it off - it doesn't matter I cannot change it from checking for updates constantly. Furthermore, once it's checked for updates I cannot dismiss the ones I do not need or want. It constantly asks me to install the updates even though I would have no use for them.

Apple wants cash to solve the problem. Since it began occurring  after my last paid OS update, that's BS.

OS X :: Installed Snow Leopard It Did Not Automatically Install The Updates For The Printer Drivers ?

Sep 1, 2009

For whatever reason, when I installed Snow Leopard it did not automatically install the updates for the printer drivers already installed in my computer.

I then tried to manually install the printer drivers using the SL disk and still no luck. The printers that I use are both wireless and work when they are connected with USB. Am I missing something? I'm reading all over about how people have made the upgrade with no problems at all so I'm there's got to be something I'm not doing.

Applications :: Software Updates Wants To Install Updates For Application.

Aug 21, 2010

So a while back I had final cut pro installed, and eventually deleted cause I no longer needed it. I used AppCleaner when removing to try and make sure I got it all.

Well every time I do a software update it wants to install "Pro Applications Update" and "Prokit Updates" Which are updates for final cut pro and its related apps.

Any idea how I can stop it from wanting me to install these updates for something I no longer have?

MacBook Pro :: Stop Automatic Graphics Switching Setting Automatically Reverting

Jun 25, 2012

Macbook Pro 15" Mid 2010

OS X 10.7.4 

I have a recurring problem where my screen (built in or external monitor/projector) will just go blank at random times. It is an unrecoverable situation and I have to do a hard power reset to get working again.

After testing several theories without success I struck upon one that showed promise. The blanking tended to occur when I was in Lion Fullscreen mode, or using a gesture to start expose - so I figured maybe it was a graphics switching issue.

So I went into System Preferences and disabled 'Automatic graphics switching'. I then ran trouble free for several days (I was typically crashing 1-2 times a day)

Then several days later it happened again and I thought I was back to square one. However, a colleague suggested I check the graphic switching setting to see if something had changed it back, and sure enough it was re-enabled.

Now I find myself in a constant battle with the system to keep disabling the 'Automatic graphics switrhing' in System Preferences.

I have tried setting it and locking it, but sooner or later it reverts. I need to know if it is possible to force it to stay disabled.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: It Keeps Switching Between Multitasking Apps Automatically?

Apr 28, 2012

Sometimes, I'm browsing the web, and Lion will slide back to my desktop, with the menu bar at the top of the screen (the white one) still showing Opera as the active application. Then, after a few seconds, it'll switch back. Then back again. It happens during casual browsing, when I'm filling out an HTML form (like this one), and in applications besides Opera, like iTunes, Mail and Final Cut.I've tried  kill-all Dock and restarting the Finder through the force quit menu, to no avail.
