Intel Mac :: Force Quit Apps / Dropped Server Connections - Hard Reboot

May 16, 2012

I frequently have to Force Quit my applications - both Microsoft Office apps and Adobe Creative Suite apps. I have an iMac running 10.6.8, connected to a Microsoft 2003 server (the 2008 server works even worse for the iMac connection). I also frequently lose the server connection and have to re-boot to get it back. Re-booting involves pushing the Power button Off, then On because the menu commands don't work.

I have NO issues with the Internet connection - it remains strong throughout. I'm wondering if upgrading to Lion will increase the stability. To do that, I would also have to upgrade my Adobe CS software from CS4 to CS6, and expensive proposition with no guarantee it will resolve these issues. (Many of the Apple techs I called pointed their fingers at the Microsft server.) Is any of this curable? If so, what is the cure?

Info:
iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), connected to Microsoft 2003 server

OS X :: Apps Freezing - Can't Force Quit

Jul 28, 2008

I have a Mac Pro with 10.5.4 (Intel 2.66 Dual-Core -- 5GB ram) installed. Things have been running smoothly for a long time, but recently I've had a few kernel panics, which seem to have gone away, but now it's very common for applications to freeze, and I can't unfreeze them by force-quitting--I have to power the G5 down by holding the power button.

OS X Mavericks :: Force Quit Showing Apps Still Open

Jun 27, 2014

'm showing iBooks, Pages, & Preview are still open via the Force Quit dialog but I haven't used them since the previous evening.I have an older Macbook (Aluminum, Late 2008) so I try to run as lean as possible. There are no extra windows open that I can find.  Double clicking them from Force Quit brings them up to then quit from the application proper, apps to quit when I tell them to.Has this to do with iCloud integration? (Like Pages wasn't quite done with an iCloud upload before I quit).Should I try a reinstall of the apps or Mavericks?

OS X :: IMac And AOL - Need To Force Quit

Mar 25, 2009

I purchased a new IMac Intel version and I am having a problem with AOL. I have always had a problem with AOL and my Macs (now on number 3). In the past, if I left AOL running it would not allow the Macs to close down without Force Quitting from AOL and AOL would not quit normally. With the new Mac, if I use AOL it won't quit and when I Force Quit it disconnects the Mac from the internet and I have to restart. As I live in Antigua both Apple and AOL have been useless at trying to solve the problem.

OS X :: Force Quit Has Wrong Key Command On 10.6?

May 28, 2010

I wanted to force quit an application on my first gen MacBook running Mac OS X 10.6.3, so I looked up the short cut key command from the Apple menu. I saw that it was option-command-power-button. I pressed these keys, and my Mac instantly displayed a black screen. After about five seconds, my Mac made the usual sounds of starting up. I booted up, and nothing seemed to have been affected, so I double checked Console, which didn't help much. I looked up the short cut key command for force quit online. The Internet says its option-command-esc. I tried the command, and up popped the force quit prompt. So why is the short cut key command WRONG on my Apple menu?

OS X :: How To Force Quit When Pressing Red Button

Nov 9, 2010

I'd like to force quit just like in Windows when I press the Red Button. It's stupid that OS X minimizes it. ( programs consume alot of CPU power if you do this, I watched activity monitor and some programs use 10-20% in this state )

How do I setup OS X to force quit an application when I press the Red Button?

OS X :: After Force Quit No Way To Restart Application

Apr 23, 2009

Sometime when some application hangs I try to force quit it and the process completely disappears from the Activity Monitor, but the little white marker under the icon on the dock remains and there is no way to restart the application. Does any one know of an easy way out without having the restart the machine? I have a 2008 MBP with Leopard 100% up-to-date on the machine. I tried restarting the application directly from the Application folder instead of double clicking on the dock, and I got "An unexpected error occurred (error code -600)" -- according to Apple, error code -600 means: procNotFound - No eligible process with specified process serial number.

I was just wondering whether or not if there's a way to change the escape button in an open window (red one) to force quit? I'm not really a fan of the whole escape button not entirely quitting your apps, it's still running (if that makes sense).

Applications :: Server Denies Connections - Only On My Mac

Feb 22, 2010

I have a MacBook Pro running OS 10.6. There is a website I used to visit to read e-books for free. Then one day (nothing changed hardware or software-wise), I could no longer access that site from my computer. My friend came over - with his PC - and was able to access it from my network. Today, I just accessed the site from my wife's iMac G5 (same network), but I still cannot access it on my computer using ANY browser (Safari and Firefox). I cannot access the site from anyone's network either --- making me think my MBP is doing something weird. I keep getting:
"The server denies connections. The server might be too busy or might be disabled. Try again a bit later."

Software :: Safari 4.0.3 Not Responding - Need To Force Quit

Sep 25, 2009

Since the last update my Safari 4.0.3 crashes a lot. Like 3 or 4 times a day. Either that or it shows the spinning beach ball, meaning Safari is not responding and needs to be force quit. It looks like it's happening when a page is (re)loading. This looks a lot like the continuous crashing that happened to Safari 4 when it was just launched (was that in April, or May?). That was then reason for me to switch to Firefox. If this keeps up I might do that again. Or maybe to Chrome.

(I'm still on OSX.5.8).

Laptops :: Applications Are Stalling - Need To Force Quit

Apr 8, 2010

At first I thought it was a Quark problem. When doing a mundane action such as changing a word to Italic, Quark 7.5 stalls (pretty color spinning wheel comes up and won't go away) it has to be forced to quit. Now, the same thing happened in Acrobat 7, when I was just moving across the top menu bar to drop down the tools menu. I am running MAC 0S X 10.5 on a MAC Book Pro3 - 2.4 ghz. I've run maintenance and everything looks fine.

OS X :: Preserving Tabs In Safari After Force Quit?

Sep 8, 2009

Things usually go so well with Safari that I let my tabs grow to quite a number. No problem, until visiting an unfriendly web site that gives the spinning beach ball of frustration. Force quitting is the only solution, but there go all those tabs, some I've had open for days or weeks.

Is there a workaround that allows one to save the previous session, including tabs upon quitting Safari (to include Force Quit)?

MacBook Pro :: System Freezes When Trying To Force Quit

Sep 13, 2010

Say an app has crashed and I then bring up the force quit dialog. I then select the app I want to kill, and press the force quit button. Now as the little popup that says "Are you sure you want to force quit" is coming down, my machine freezes. This has happened 3 times exactly the same way. Other than that, the machine is smooth as clockwork. I'm kinda thinking there is some sort of GFX card bug or something?
