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.

MacBook :: Screen Color Settings Change After Screen Saver?

May 8, 2009

so this has happened twice now in the past month, my mb is in screen saver mode and i wake it up to find that the color is off in the screen. meaning that the color settings changed and the screen has a swashed out blue tint to it. first time i restarted and all was good, second time i clicked on the preferences icon and then the screen went back to its normal setting. my normal setting is not the factory one but one of the ones that people said makes the screen look better.

so what gives, is the integrated chip dieing on me?

oh its a unibody that i got when they first came out, 2.0 processor one all factory

OS X :: Videos Full Screen With Dual Monitors?

Feb 15, 2010

I just bought a new monitor to use as a secondary display with my MBP. I'm trying to watch a video in Firefox on my secondary display, when I try to watch the video in full screen and move back the mouse on my MBP display and click on that display. The video on my secondary display will exit full screen. How do I stop this from happening?

Mac Pro :: Using Dual Monitors / Screen Makes Blue Flashes?

May 15, 2008

I just hooked up a 2nd monitor to my early '08 Mac Pro and when in OSX the screens start to go blank/blue for about 1 second intervals. They flash together sometimes, and other times sort of independantly to each other. When the desktop comes back on it fades in like its animated rather than like its cutting in and out.

It seems fine when I disconnect one monitor.Running 10.5.2 all updates 8 core 2.8ghz with 10gb ram and 8800GT

IMac :: SSD And Energy Saver Settings?

Dec 18, 2010

If I replace my mid-2007 iMac's internal HDD with an SSD, will Snow Leopard still present me with the "Put the hard disk(s) to sleep when possible" checkbox on the Energy Saver power settings screen? If so, do I tick it or not? I will still have an HDD for Time Machine connected via FW800.

Mac Pro :: Display Will Not Sleep In Energy Saver Settings?

Apr 9, 2010

I have a new issue with my Mac Pro (3,1 - 2008), it just popped up (and I don't think it was caused by 10.6.3, I remember this working correctly after it was installed)I have two monitors connected via DVI to a flashed XFX 4870. The 4870 has never given me any trouble.the Energy Saver settings, I usually set the machine to never sleep, and the displays to sleep after 5 minutes. This used to work great, never had any trouble with it, ever. Now, the displays don't go to sleep after 5 minutes, they just stay on with a screensaver.

Mac Pro :: 8800 GT Dual Monitors Don't Fit?

Mar 4, 2008

So I was using my second monitor to run my G5 while transferring files to my new 3.2 octo, and then the past week I was using it to transfer my old PC files to my new PC. Now I finally just went to hook it up as my second monitor on my Mac Pro, and found out that I CAN'T FIT BOTH DVI CABLES TO THE PORTS!!!

They're too close together so I can fit one monitor into either port, but not both simultaneously. My monitors are the aluminum 23" ACD's w/ DVI.

OS X :: How To Use Hot Corners With Dual Monitors

Sep 12, 2009

Does anyone know how to get hot corners to work on dual displays? I had a monitor plugged into my MBP 2.5ghz and after changing the relative location of the monitor in display settings, left of main screen to top of main screen, the lower left corner would allow me to access Expose for the applications in the current monitor, instead of exposing all application windows on both screens. This feature is very helpful though I cannot repeat it. Is there a certain orientation of the monitors that will allow each screen to have it's own hot corners functioning for that screen of was this just a fluke?

it would be nice to be working on one screen and watching a movie on the other without the movie expose ing when I only want to expose the applications/windows on the monitor who's corner I accessed.

Intel Mac :: How To Set Up Dual Monitors For It

Apr 24, 2012

I have an intel imac and would like to set up a second monitor to allow for more simultaneous side-by-side space when I do programming/editing.  As I'm not interested in paying $1000+ for an apple monitor, I'd like to use a third party one.  Thus far, I think I need a VGA to MiniDVI adapter [url], but then can I use ANY monitor that has a VGA port?  And then will it be as simple as plugging in the second monitor and detecting it?  Will the iMac screen remain unchanged?  Will the computer just "know" when I scroll across one screen to the other

MacBook :: Energy Saver Icon - Change The Settings

Feb 7, 2009

I just noticed a small but very annoying change. I have the energy saver pane appear in the menu bar on my iBook. It used to be when I clicked the battery icon I could select Better Battery Life, Better Performance, or Normal from the drop down menu. I don't when this change happened, but I am now no longer able to select those from the icon, I have to open System Preference to change it. [URL]

OS X :: Changing Graphic Power Settings Within Energy Saver

Jun 18, 2009

I am new to Mac - having wished I had converted years ago - my new MacBook Pro is great. Mac makes Windows seem like living in the stone age, but I am rambling. I have found that it's possible to manually change graphic power settings within energy saver, but is there just that one setting? I would have hoped for an automatic change of settings depending if you are working on mains or battery. Unrelated, does a Mac have a delete key?

IMac :: Can I Reset Power Saver Settings In A System

Jul 28, 2009

I have this iMac for slightly over two years and when I forst got it I thought it would be a good idea to have it start up a 6:55am each weeday. After about a week I changed my mind and went back into Power Saver and turned off the settings. Since then, I can't tget the machine to quit auto-starting at 6:55, 7:55 and even sometime 8:55. I have called Apple, taken it in to an Apple store, they even claim to have replaced the computer

OS X Mavericks :: Energy Saver Settings Revert Back

Sep 9, 2014

I change my Energy Saver settings (Mavericks), but the changes do not remain.  Once the display goes to sleep, the settings change back to other values (which aren't the same as the default settings).  This happens even though I have the settings locked.  Could some other utility be changing the settings? My Macbook Pro was imaged through my work - might they have set something up that can revert settings? 

I've already tried trashing the file and restarting - that didn't solve the problem.

Windows On Mac :: VM Fusionware And Dual Monitors

Aug 29, 2008

I am a web developer, and we are a Windows shop, but many of us are moving to Macs since we can run both OS X and Windows on the same machine. Well my work is purchasing a Macbook Pro for me, and I'll be hooking up an external monitor to it to replicate the dual monitor setup I have now.

As I learned in the OS X forum, I'm able to specify which programs I would like to launch in which "Space" upon boot. My question is, is VM Fusionware compatible with a dual monitor setup? As an example, could Space "1" contain my OS X desktop on both monitors, and then if I switch over to Space "2" which has VM Fusionware running with Windows, will the windows desktop span both screens as well?
