Mac Mini :: Its Disconnecting From Airport On Sleep

Jun 24, 2012

My Mac Mini keeps disconnecting from the Wireless (Airport) when it goes to sleep. It didn't used to do this. I just went from Century Link Modem to Cable Modem. Is there a setting that got dropped in the transition?

Intel Mac :: Why Do Network Preferences Keep Changing And Disconnecting WiFi After Sleep

May 9, 2012

I have an iMac OS X 10.7.3 (purchased in late 2010) with all updates current. I use AirPort to connect to my Linksys router with a WPA2 password.

Nearly everytime I wake my computer from sleep, my wireless router is disconnected, even when I have set my settings and clicked on the lock to prevent further changes. My router always shows on the list of available connections with full strength, but it is more often than not extremely difficult to get it connected again. It says "Could not join "myRouter". A connection time out occured."  I usually have to use the assistant and go through the steps, which usually includes re-typing my password four to five times before it agrees that I know my own password (which is fairly simple to type, I can't possibly be entering it incorrectly that many times).

I downloaded and installed an update [URL] that quote: "resolves an issue that may cause an iMac to not automatically connect to a known Wi-Fi network after waking from sleep. It is recommended for all iMac (Late 2009 or newer) users running 10.7.3."  

I tried setting a new location, and set the DHCP setting under TCP/IP to be manual. I was successful in connecting to the internet that time, and locked the settings to prevent further changes, yet the first time my computer woke from a sleep, the lock was unchecked and the settings were changed back to automatic. And I was disconnected yet again. 

This has been going on for months, but in the last couple weeks I have found I am now unable to lock the lock to prevent changes, no matter if my Location is set to automatic or one that I have created. Really looking for resolution as this is wasting so much time, I am on and off the computer multiple times a day.

MacBook Pro :: AirPort Keeps Disconnecting And Searching For Network

Sep 9, 2010

Lately I've been noticing that my Airport disconnects about every 10 - 15 mins or so and then reconnects after it searches for a network, which is mine. 99% of the time I'm sitting right in front of my router. I've reset the router, rebooted, reset my pram, and the problem still persists. This issue doesn't occur on my girlfriends HP.

OS X :: MacBook Airport Constantly Disconnecting And Reconnecting?

Mar 14, 2010

This issue started to appear few days ago, and it is really frustrating.

Every couple of minutes, my Airport disconnects from the networks and reconnects in a matter of seconds, causing all of my on-line activities to cancel, and IM programs to disconnect.

And the main concern is that I've had my Macbook for 2 and a half years already, and this never happened before. And now happens all the time.

Intel Mac :: External Seagate GoFlex Firewire Drive Disconnecting On Sleep Mode?

Mar 22, 2012

I am Running a 2.8Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo 24" iMac running Mac OS X 10.7.3. I run time machine to backup to an external Seagate 3TB, FreeAgent GoFlex Desk, FireWire Drive. When the Mac goes into sleep mode, the Seagate drive un-mounts. When the Mac wakes up, I get an error that the drive was not properly disconnected and the drive is no longer mounted. The only way I can get the drive to remount, is to remove power from the drive for several seconds and then reconnect it.

Mac Mini :: Connecting To The Internet / Keeps Disconnecting?

Mar 28, 2012

My mac mini has problems connecting to the internet it keeps disconnecting from the preferred network. When trying to reconnect, it says there's an error trying to join the network. When it can connect, it's only for a brief period. I bought it a while back and had this problem back then. I stored it away, and only recently dug it out again still having the same problem.

MacBook Air :: Airport Connection/Sleep Versus Sleep Display?

Apr 9, 2008

I leave my Air on pretty much all the time, and put it to sleep while moving around etc. Sleeping it disconnect the Airport connection - which if very annoying. At a desk I've just been dimming the display all the way off in order to keep my connection.

However, I recently noticed that by setting a "sleep display" hot corner, my network connection is maintained.

I have 2 questions:
1) Is sleep display equivalent (functionally) to simply dimming the display all the way down?
2) Is there a way to either set up a shortcut to sleep the display (other than a hot corner) and/or set it so that only the DISPLAY sleeps after 'x' minutes?

Mac Mini :: System Keeps Going To Sleep Mode / Preferences Are Set To Never Sleep

Aug 10, 2009

I am running Mac Mini as a home server (turns out to be not a great idea, btw), and even though I set the preference to never sleep or shut down, it does go to sleep when there is no activity for long time. Since I am using it as home server, it should stay awake all the time or at least wake up from sleep when there is incoming ping from other computer, but it just goes to sleep.

Mac Mini :: Disconnect Mini From Mains In Sleep Mode?

Jul 27, 2010

Is it possible to switch off the mains when the Mac Mini is in sleep mode?

I've only had MBPs in the recent years and appreciate their low impact on my electricity bill very much - letting them sleep unplugged does make a difference. Now I'm contemplating a Mac Mini and while I know its power consumption is as low as with the notebooks (if not lower without display), I'm wondering if the Mini needs the current in sleep mode. I assume it does, but I'd rather know than guess.

Mac Mini :: Mini Keeps Shutting Down When In Sleep Mode!!

Aug 5, 2009

So this past week when my mini hasn't stayed in sleep mode, it shuts itself down about a minute later after being in sleep mode. I haven't changed any of my settings in a year and a half, normally it would stay in sleep mode until i come back to it and logged on again. When it does shut down i just cannot power back on i have to unplug the adapter then replug it in for it to start up again. I've searched google and on here for possible ideas. I wouldn't think it to be overheating since I'm not running any applications when i put it in sleep. It might be the power supply since i have to do that process to get it to work again. Let me know what could be causing this or ways to troubleshoot this problem.

Mac Mini :: Mac Mini - Computer That Loses Airport Connection?

Aug 21, 2009

I have the current generation $599 Mac Mini, with Nvidia graphics (just to clarify the model).

My wireless network is setup from an Airport Express.

My iMac, Powerbook, iPhones, Apple TV, Wii, etc. can all stay connected without problem.

However, my Mac Mini loses the connection constantly. It shows full signal, but then it drops out 100 percent for a few minutes, nonstop all day. It makes it completely useless effectively.

What kind of settings and things could I try to change?

Or, is this likely a hardware issue?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Airport Extreme Won't Sleep

Jun 20, 2012

I am at a loss with this one. I have a Mid-2011 Mac Mini running OS X 10.7.4 Server (11E53) connected via gigabit ethernet to an Airport Extreme. This computer will not sleep on its own using the system sleep timer.

If anyone has any ideas that may help, I'm all ears! The Mac Mini should sleep as intended and the Airport Extreme router should wake it if network resources are requested via a Magic Packet. This same Airport Extreme does wake the other computers on the network just fine when they are configured to Wake on Lan (womp 1 in the pmset -g output, below).

Hardware :: Can Airport Extreme Go Into Sleep Mode

Jan 6, 2011

I was reading about how constant exposure to cell phone and Wifi rays are not to healthy for human beings. The article suggested turning off Wifi when not in use so your home isn't pumping it 24/7 even while you are asleep. But obviously that would be a pain unless there was a router that could simply wake up from sleep whenever some tries to access, just like a desktop computer.

Anyway, I think that would be a slick invention if there isn't one already

Yeah the government regulates so called "safe levels" but, c'mon, these guys can't get anything right, and I don't want to end up with freakin brain tumors and cancer when smarter steps could be taken now.

MacBook :: Unable To Wake After Sleep In Airport?

Dec 4, 2009

On my new white unibody MacBook I have an Airport issue that always occurs after I wake the MacBook from sleep. I'm wondering if any of you have a similar issue and/or might not how to solve it.

Basically, when I wake the MacBook from sleep, it connects to my wireless network (and to whichever network I happen to be using at the time). A few seconds later, it will drop the connection, an exclamation mark will appear (!) on top of the Airport icon on the menu bar, and when I click on the icon I see "Alert: No Internet Connection."

Then, if I just sit and wait, eventually Airport will connect to the network. But I have to wait -- selecting the network from the available list or turning Airport off and on doesn't help. And sometimes waiting isn't enough -- I sometimes have to go to "Create Network ..." and start all over to get a connection.

I've upgraded to 10.6.2 and the issue persists.

Applications :: Airport Extreme - WPA Connection Disconnects After Sleep?

Apr 10, 2004

I'm using WPA encryption on my Airport Extreme via a Linksys WRT54G. Everything works great, except when my Powerbook wakes up from sleeping, the connection is lost, and doesn't reconnect. To re-establish the connection, I have to select "Turn Airport Off" and then "Turn Airport On" from the Airport extra, then select my network from the menu. It doesn't seem to be a question of forgetting the key, because it doesn't ask me for the key again when I do this.

So, (a) has anyone seen this behavior and (b) is there any known fix? I saw a couple other posts in a Google search referring to this behavior, but they were older posts, and didn't have any answers.

This is on OS X 10.3.3 BTW with all the most recent updates.

IMac :: AirPort Malfunction After Waking Up From Sleep Mode?

Nov 5, 2009

The AirPort on my new iMac 21.5'' 4670 is having problems these past couple of days. Every time I put the machine to Sleep and wake it up again, the AirPort cannot find any network. My wireless is fine and there are other wireless networks the machine can detect when it functions well. I have to restart the computer to have the AirPort work properly again. I thought it was a temporary issue, but after repeating a couple of times, it seems to be very easily recreated. And sometimes the AirPort does not function even from a restart. I have to restart another time to have it work.

Does anybody else have the similar problem? I hope it's just a software problem that will be addressed in 10.6.2.

(I posted here because it never happened on my other Macs before.)

OS X :: Mac Mini Wakes From Sleep

May 8, 2010

I have Mac mini 2.26 (2009) OS 10.6.3. with apple wireless keyboard and magic mouse. For some time now my mini wakes from sleep for no reason after 20 minutes. I have checked kernel.log and it says that ohc=2 is the reason for wake up. It seems to be bluetooth keyboard or mouse. When I turn off "allow bluetooth devices to wake..." everything seems to be ok. Is there a way to fix this because I would like to be able to wake mini with keyboard.

OS X :: Mac Mini Not Going To Sleep Automatically

Jul 10, 2010

I purchased a 2009 Mac Mini in January this and I am loving it. Ever since I got it the machine does not go to sleep even with settings set and every program closed. The only way I can get it to go to sleep is by hitting the apple button and sleep. Sometimes I am not always here and would like it to go to sleep automatically.

Mac Mini :: Server Won't Go To Sleep?

May 15, 2012

Like a naughty child, my Mac Mini server (i7 2Ghz, OS X 10.7.3) won't go to sleep. I use it as a personal computer, not a server, and I like to put it to sleep at night. But about 20 seconds after going to sleep, it wakes up again. 

I've shut off all the server functions I can think of, and it's still waking up. Is there any way to determine WHAT is waking it up when I put it to sleep?

OS X :: Mac Mini - Automatic Vs Manual Sleep

Sep 29, 2010

I'm having a strange problem with sleeping my Mac Mini. If i let the computer automatically sleep then the 2 external drives spin up and down continuously. If i sleep manually ( > Sleep) then no such problems occur. The drives spin down, and stay down. Any ideas as to why this happens and how to make automatic sleep replicate manual sleep? why are they not identical?

Mac Mini :: Display Won't Come Back From Sleep?

Aug 20, 2010

About a year ago, I convinced my mom to replace her old Flat Screen iMac G4 for a Mac Mini. We decided to buy a 23" HANNSpree LCD display, connected via Mini DisplayPort to VGA. Since then, my mom has often experienced the same issue: It is often unresponsive to waking from sleep, and sometimes it takes *ages* to come back to life, especially after the computer has fallen asleep for a long time (overnight).Sometimes, though I know the mini is awake, the display says that it cannot detect a signal coming from the mini.
