MacBook Air :: Background Wallpaper Is Gone
I have no idea why, but the first thing I noticed when I turned on my MBA on the morning of Jan. 1, 2011 was that I had the Apple Mac standard background wallpaper instead of the photo that I had selected when I first setup my new MBA a month ago or more. It was easy to put the photo back, but I will forever wonder what caused this to occur.

Information:
iMac 3.06ghz 24" 4g
Mac OS X (10.6.5)
Macbook Air 11.6"

MacBook Pro :: Wallpaper Keeps Disappearing Using Internet / Wallpaper Disappears And Turns Blue
I'm not sure why but whenever I go onto the internet, my wallpaper disappears and it turns blue. If I want to restore it I have to click on a different wallpaper in system preferences then click back to the one I want. Any ideas?

MacBook Air :: MacBook Air Grey Line Photos
Ok, I just got my MBA. People have being talking about the grey line issue. I googled and only found 2 photos.

Photo 1.

I can't really see where the line is on photo 1. If you know, can you highlight it and reply this thread?

Photo 2

I can see clearly that the line is across the apple logo. But does this happen at other location on the screen as well? If this is it, then I think mine's ok.

MacBook Air :: Complete Grey-out On The Screen
I'm using a MacBook Air 2.1, with OS X 10.6.5. About a quarter of an hour ago I had a complete grey-out on the screen. I had to shut down using the on/off button. I've successfully rebooted, although it was a bit slow getting going again. The only thing I was running at the time was Google Chrome (the latest beta version). I've never had this happen before, and I'm a bit worried.

MacBook Air :: Slight Flickering Only On Dark Grey On External Display?
I have a 28" inch display attached to newest version of Air. Works ok except when I have a full screen on plain dark grey background, then I see a waviness or flickering effect. Like the dark grey in Iphoto background. Other than this, the other colors seems ok. Pictures are fine, even when dark. Maybe there's a slight flickering with dark blue. Any explanations for this.
using mini display port to dvi. Tried with a friends dual link display, was a little different, but still unstable looking in dark grey when it fills the screen.

Could it be just what it takes to make this color, or the Hertz, which is 60. Other than this, no problem with the screen.

MacBook Air :: Clicking On User Photo Does Not Log In
I have a 1-week old MacBook Air w Lion OS which was set up at the Apple Store so I could log on without a password. Doing so brought me immediately to my Desktop. After installing MS Office via download, at the next boot up I got a grey screen with options to log on as me (my photo) or guest.† I was able to log on by using my Apple password but then Keychain started asking for a password for every app.† I was able to blow by those prompts by sometimes entering a password and sometimes just pressing Enter. Tried to change settings back so I would not need password. Can't remember what I changed but now when I click on my user photo at the logon screen nothing happens.† Tried booting to Recovery and ran Repair Disk Permissions. No luck. I am new to Apple and don't know what to try next

MacBook Air :: Takes Almost 10 Minutes From Switch On To The Log On Screen
My 3-weeks old Macbook Air is taking almost 10 minutes to get from switch on to the log on screen, it seems to be stuck at the white screen with the Apple logo & the spinning grey wheel. Anybody faced similar problems before? What caused this? I was working with about 7 or 8 different Excel files open at one go and a couple were corrupted (but repaired). I have never experienced anything like this with my i5 iMac and wasn't expecting this on the Macbook Air. Any light at the end of the tunnel?

MacBook Air :: (SSD) Won't Restart - Blue Grey Screen - Apple Logo - Spinning Icon
I'm on a trip with Air and SuperDrive and original software disks and a MacBook Pro. After trying to restart MacBook Air, it stays stuck on the blue grey screen with spinning icon. I restarted the Air with the system install disk in the SuperDrive, and used Disk Utility to repair the Air's HD, and it came back saying the disk appears to be ok. But trying to restart from the Air's startup disk, same situation. I could try to reinstall the original operating system from DVD, but will that erase my documents, etc.? I am traveling and don't have access to my usual Time Machine backup at home. Since there's no Target Disk Mode in MacBook Air, is there anyway I can get to my existing documents folder to copy a few essential files before wiping the whole hard drive?

MacBook Air :: Not Booting Past Log In Screen Even In Safe Boot?
My cousins MBA was not booting in regular mode so I told her to boot in safe mode and repair disk permissions, which helped for 2 days and now she can not even boot in safe boot mode. I must mention she has a lot of data on her computer and her HD says she has 9 gigs available then it says 0 gigs available. What should we do to get her MBA up and running so we can delete more data and hopefully get her computer running again? -She is away at school and does not have access to an external drive to boot her MBA from the disc.

MacBook Air :: Trying The Kensington SD200v Dock
Got an MBA a while back (Mid February), and am just now migrating out of my old Dell into my MBA. I find myself in a quandary -- buy bluetooth accessories or invest in a dock for the MBA.

I heard the Kensington sd200v dock is nice, and OS X drivers are in beta. Anyone running this setup on their Mac? I really need the ability to unplug and go at the drop of a hat. The prospect of outputting graphics for an extended desktop, audio, and a USB hub all through one USB connection is VERY attractive. Needless to say, it will all be in vain if I need to reset my graphics properties every time a disconnect and reattach. I have no experience with Kensington products, and ma curious how well they function in the Mac environment.

I use a MacBook Air to access stock trading software from Charles Schwab. If I am on for over an hour and visit stock charts during this time, the responsiveness becomes very slow. I reset Safari or empty the cache, and I am back up to normal speed. how I can avoid having to shut down Safari, restart Safari and log back into my Schwab account? Is this a memory issue?

MacBook Air :: Dock On Left Or Right - Find It Unusable
But it seems this or hiding it will be the only way to go with the new small air. The thing that I find very badly thought out in apple's implementation is that the furthest left icon on the dock (the finder one) becomes the top on when you put it on the left or right and there's no option to reverse the this. Now when you are switching between windows it takes much more time to travel with your mouth near the top and left or right than it would near the bottom for obvious usability reasons. So you end up having the closest to you those icons (minimized ones, stacks) that you will use less often to switch from one to the other, and the ones you will use more often such as the first few ones the furthest up. I can't see how people can work with this kind of set up and I am always amazed how some people manage to keep their dock on the left or right...

MacBook Air :: Apps Don't Appear Properly In Dock
My friend's MBP was doing this recently, and asked me if I had a solution - to which I did not, and now my MBA is doing this: 

On the left side of my dock, I have all the applications I frequently use, Finder, Browser, Mail, etc etc.  And on the right side of my dock, ive put a few folders for my documents, applications, and downloaded items, for quick access to them. 

My other applications, when openned from the Applications folder on the right side of the dock, would usually pop a little icon down on the left side of the dock, indicating that particular application was currently running, and where you could click on it - view files currently openned, that sort of thing.  And now - That no longer happens?  When the app is openned, it no longer puts an icon on the left side.  Theres no presence that the app is currenly running.  If i have several apps running at once maximized, I can no longer Tab between them back and forth, or click between them on the dock.  And when I minimize the app It no longer receides into its icon on the left (because the icon doesnt appear there anymore), but now minimizes to the right hand side of the dock. 

I don't know what has changed, or happenned, and I doubt it's something I did - because I rarely mess around with the settings on this thing.  It operates perfectly otherwise.
