Applications :: Separate Screensavers With Dual Monitors?

Jan 4, 2004

I did some looking for it, but couldn't find a thing.

I'm wondering if there is any way that two screensavers can run independently on two monitors. So, if there is, drop me a line.

Mac Pro :: Dual Monitors - Separate Screen Saver Settings

May 8, 2012

I've got dual monitors up and running for the first time. With my workflow, I'll be working at one monitor for several hours and then the other for several hours. I'd like to have independent screen savers for each monitor so the one not being used won't get burn in, etc., but I don't see any way to do that.  

Perhaps I'm answering my own question here, but I would suppose that if I'm in extended mode (which I'll be doing) it's really just one big screen, so there isn't a way to tell the other screen to start running a screen saver....and if I'm mirroring, they're both doing exactly the same thing. Those pieces of logic tell me that I can't do what I want to do.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Two Separate Time Machine Backups / Use To Create Two Separate Profiles On One New Computer

Mar 31, 2012

I have an iMac 27 (end of year 2009) I5.It has 1 TB internal and I want to replace it with a 2 TB internal. I have time machine backups on an external hard drive that has been connected via Firewire. I have another iMac (my son's)Imac 24 Intel Core 2 Duo that has it's own separate Time machine backup to it's own separate firewire connected external drive.Both machines are completely up to date with the latest version of Lion and all other necessary software updates.When the internal hardrive is replaced - I want to use my latest time machine backup to create one profile on the imac and then use my son's latest time machine back up for a second profile.The end goal being to have everything from my current set up ie: apps, documents, itunes, etc existing in one profile and everything in my son's current set up existing in the other profile.We can both be administrators for the time being as well.I should note even though we both have some of the same apps, we both also have other apps that the other does not.

My profile will be using about 900 gigs of total space.My son's profile will be using about 250 gigs of total space.This is temporary until the new iMac is released.Then I will want to transfer my profile to that leaving my son's intact on the iMac 27 I5.I realize that during the temporary period that Time Machine will be making backups of this entire two profile setup, which I am now understanding as I write this will create a new issue for me when I want to transfer only my profile to the new computer as well.But one bridge to cross at a time, I guess.I need to do this because we must bring his current computer to my father - as his iMac G5 is inoperable. We have been doing this round robin hand me down in our family since IMac DV special edition :-)

Mac OS X Lion Server :: MBP 2008 Running Slow?

Jul 5, 2012

I have a 2008 MBP with 4gb of RAM. I upgraded via fresh install to Lion and ever since I've had this computer running literally 1/2 the speed it did on Snow Leopard.  I've tried Googling and done everything everyone was saying to do but no changes. I also noticed that no matter what I do, when I run disk utility and check permissions it comes back with files that have  problems but nothing I do will actually repair them.  I'd also like to know if there is any way to turn off the absolutely dumb full screen apps and mission control and launch pad stuff as i'm sure that all the extra graphics requirements has to be hurting my performance a bit.  I'm not sure what all the desktop developers have been smoking lately but last I checked a computer was not a phone and trying to mimic the interface is just dumb.  There is nothing useful about anything they've done in Lion that I can see.  It all looks cool but trying to use it on a daily basis it just stinks. Even the full-screen apps that I though would be cool stinks because it takes longer to swith from one to the other and you loose the top menu while in it which requires extra effort just to see what time it is.

OS X V10.7 :: Share Files To Desktop Of A Mini-server Running Lion?

Mar 12, 2012

Is is possible to share files to the desktop of a mini-server running Lion? I've done this for years with other operating systems with no trouble ... and when I drag files to other locations on the mini-server it works fine.

But when I try to drag a file to the desktop of the mini-server, I get asked for a password. I type in the password; it gets accepted. Then I get a dialog: "A newer version of do you want to replace...?" When I click "yes," I get another dialog:

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Average Number Of Users On A Mini Running?

May 2, 2012

I'm in IT at a shop that is 98% Mac based.  At this point in time, we would like to use Lion Server to provide Time Machine backups and software updates to our users.  The environment is as follows:  We are all using laptops, connecting to our network and the internet using wireless only.  The mini has an ethernet cable attached and wireless will not be enabled for it.  All Time Machine backups and software updates will be done wirelessly.  The backups will be mostly text files, although in some instances there will be large amounts of said files.  Of course I will limit and exclude certain folders and file types from backup and I would like to have the user do their first backup via firewire/thunderbolt so the largest amount of data will not be pushed over the air.  I'm currently running tests with a few users doing just Time Machine backups to the Mini and all is going well, but I'm curious as to how many people I will be able to place on one Mini before it becomes too much.  We have about 70 users now and could be close to 100 by the end of the year.  We are a company that will continue to grow too.  Anyone have thoughts or experience with a large user base doing backups to a Mini like this?  How many users could I fit on each Mini? Would I be better off just going for the Mac Pro?

Hardware :: Running Two Size Monitors On Mac Pro

Jul 25, 2009

I have a Mac Pro and two different size monitors � 19� and 23�. The Mac Pro sees both monitors at the same time as expected. I wish to run the two different size monitors so that the menu bar AND the full desktop area appear on each monitor. If I select �mirror monitors� then the 23� (wide screen) reduces in size to match the 19� monitor (square desktop). What I want to do is to have BOTH monitors show the exact same thing - the Menu Bar and use all of the display area/desktop for each monitor. Other than purchase another new acer 23� monitor is there a way to get both monitors to appear as if they had been connected individually � each with menu and all desktop used? How can I make this happen?

Why do I want to do this? I have two different work stations approximately 20� apart but I am using the same Mac Pro for both work stations � using wireless mouse and wireless keyboard for the remote work station.

MacBook Pro :: Running 2 External Monitors On Unibody

Jan 16, 2009

I'm looking to run two extra screens off of my unibody 15" MBP while still using the screen on the notebook itself for intensive video-editing between FCP and the adobe series. I understand the maximum resolution the mini-dvi port can handle is 1920x1200--no problem. Now, does the maximum resolution change at all if I am running two external monitors (one using the mini DVI port and the other using a USB port via VGA/DVI adaptor to USB).

Can the graphics card handle running three screens at once along with FCP,After Effects, and Illustrator? Can the USB port also push 1920x1200? Or does the USB port on the MBP (I understand each adapter can have different capacities) have a different limit? Or is that 1920x1200 limit the maximum a sole mini-DVI cord can push? You might just say, hey buy a 30" ACD and use the usb/mini-dvi ports to run that at an even GREATER resolution. But alas, I cannot afford to do that yet.

Mac Mini :: Running Dual 24" Monitors

Jun 25, 2010

I am new here, and have searched, but just needed to get some input. I currently have a Macbook, but want to get a Mac mini for the desk. I would like to run 2 of the inexpensive 24" monitors independently. All I use is iWork, heavy Internet, light movies, and rarely games (would like to try Starcraft 2), but mostly work stuff. Nothing intense.

What would be the earliest Mac mini that could handle this?

OS :: Replacing A Hard Drive In A Server - Running OS X Server 10.3.9

Jun 2, 2008

I admin a network of Macs that use a 10.3.9 based OS X Server machine as a backup server. There is an iDisk account the server uses for iDisk backups and once a month I run a manual full back to CD. Tonight, the CD backup failed to run since the boot volume was basically full. Upon further inspection, I learned the boot volume is 6GB on a 20GB drive. So, I'm looking to possibly replace the hard drive. I'm also considering replacing the entire server with more modern hardware but that's another discussion.If I were to replace the 20GB hard drive in the server now with say a 60GB (we're talking PATA/IDE here) what would be the best way of doing it? We're talking about the boot volume now so I would need to move the OS and MBR and everything to the new drive.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: AD LDAP Connects To Lion Server But Does Not Show Users / Groups

Feb 19, 2012

I have a server in our DMZ that connects to Active Directory LDAP server (non-ssl over 389) but no objects actually show up in the directory editor. I get a green light in my Network Account Server, but queries against LDAP return no results. My end goal is to be able to dictate to Profile Manager what LDAP groups are allowed to enroll devices. I tested on our internal network on a test server and get the same results. Anyone have any luck connecting a Lion Server to LDAP and actually being able to view and utilize users and groups?

Is anyone else having this problem with the new iLife version as well? Can you test for me using a large photo album that this might be happening to other users too? I refuse to believe that my MBP can't handle it.

OS X :: How To Create Slideshows Of Pictures In Finder

Jan 7, 2010

I want to create a full screen slideshow of my pictures (from the finder). Coverflow won't do full screen, and Quick Look doesn't work well. If I go full screen I can't skip to the next picture. I can highlight multiple pictures then open Quick Look to be able to scroll to scroll through them, but it's long and tedious. Say I want to just make a slideshow from a folder of pictures without having to highlight everything and open Quick Look, is there a quick way to do this?

I thought of using Front Row (I had never tried it before), but it's telling me Pictures (0) when I have lots of folders and pictures in my home folder. Does Front Row only use pictures imported in iPhoto (which I don't use?) In Front Row, when I click on "Sources", it brings me to "Alex's MacBook" (the name of my computer) but I can't go anywhere from there or even change it, if I click it goes back to the menu.
