MacBook Air :: How To Stop A Download In Process

Jun 4, 2014

Ive just started to download a data analysis program on my Mac, but have since changed my mind and no longer want the program on my Mac .

I have paused it, but it was about 3 minutes into a 10 minute download. 

Does this mean that I have stopped the download and there will be no change to my computer?

Also, do I need to remove it?

MacBook Air

OS X :: How Do I Stop Secure Empty Trash Process On Tiger?

Jun 23, 2009

I searched the forum threads and couldn't find anything on this, apologies in advance if I missed it.

Like an idiot, I started "secure empty trash" and trashed some folders that are massive. The computer is getting hot (MacBook Pro 1st gen) and there are a lot - as in thousands - of files to go. I tried stopping the process, shutting down, and it wouldn't let me. Does anyone know how to do this?

I'm running OSX 4.11.

I know this was dumb. Did it right after a physical therapy appointment while multitasking and I wasn't thinking straight.

Software :: IMac Hanging - Stop Process At Start Up?

May 21, 2008

I am running the following system:

Apple Macintosh (Intel)
MODEL iMAC
PROC 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
RAM 1 GB 667 MHZ DDR2 SDRAM
DRIVE 300 GB

The hanging appears to have been caused when I accidently moved about 40GB of old photo's onto my desktop. Almost immediately I tried to cancel but all that happened is that the system has hung. Processer can be heard working in the background. Being new to MAC I am pretty stumped. Have tried the obvious forced restart using the power on/off button but no luck. Is there a way I can get in and stop this process say at start up?

OS X :: Re Fsck-hfs Process At Start Up - How To Disable Speed Up Process

Sep 21, 2009

I have a Mac Pro with several raid array and single drives attached (1x Wiebetech RTX600 Raid 5 through SCSI; 1x CalDigit HDElement Raid 5 through miniSAS; 4x internal drives).Unfortunately, due to various reasons (electricity outtage and software crashes), I'm experiencing system crashes and need to hard re-start the system. Upon restart, I am able to boot back into Mac OS X, but sometimes one, or both of the raid arrays will not mount.However, after a period of 0.5 - 2 hours, the array would magically re-appear again. Sometimes this might even happen to internal drives that I had mounted inside the chassis of the Mac Pro.

OS X :: Good Process Explorer Equivalent - Monitor Process CPU And RAM

Feb 26, 2010

I am wondering if anyone knows of a good osx based alternative to Process Explorer on windows - what I'd like to be able to do is graph CPU and memory for a specific process and ideally see what network connections a specific process has open. atMonitor seems to do this pretty well generally, but not for specific processes (this is for monitoring a multiplayer flash game).

Safari :: How To Stop Renaming Download Files

May 16, 2012

If I download a hjsplit file (a file split into multiple, consecutive parts .001, .002, .003, etc for recombination by the hjsplit program) safari tries to be clever, and adds a file extension of the file type, so instead of getting 3 files called: 

x.001

x.002

x.003 

I get something like 

x.001.mp3

x.002.mp3

x.003.mp3 

Presumably the website tells safari the filetype, but usually a browser allows me to override mime types like this.  In firefox  files are not renamed (so I know it is theoretically possible), whereas in safai they are, and therefore are no use to the hjsplit program until I manually rename them. 

I think this is a webkit thing, since chrome does the same thing, whereas gecko browsers like firefox and camino do not.

Applications :: How To Stop Download Of 3yrs Of Email From Gmail

Oct 18, 2008

I was wondering if there is a way to stop Mail from download 3 years worth of mail from my Gmail account, and just get the last few weeks or few months. I took the Gmail account offline in mail after the first 1000 messages or so. I went through all the Preferences options and menu option, but maybe I missed that setting.

MacBook Pro :: Process That Cannot Be 'killed'

Mar 31, 2012

There is a process, "PocketCloudService" that I cannot finish even from terminal (kill PID), the response is "Operation not permitted". I did the same of killing proceses from terminal and it worked, but it doesn't with this process. It belonged to a program that I unistalled, "Pocket Cloud". I reinstalled that program and unistalled again, but the process continues running, even if I restart the mac. It's annoying because sometimes it spends about 80% CPU, warming my mac (and my patience!), therefore I finish the process "PocketCloudService" from Activity Monitor, but it restarts few seconds after. I just want to delete or block the source that launches that process and not have to stop it manually anymore.From activity monitor when I check the process, the main process is "launchd (1)", user: root (0)

MacBook Air :: What Sort Of Delays Would I Be Seeing In The Streaming Process

Jan 27, 2009

I reviewed the guide about saving your media on a external drive and accessing it via the Internet and successfully set that up. I have about 700 GBs of space available on that all setup through my AEBS. Would it be possible to store my media (music/movies) on that and stream them from there when I am remotely (i.e. at work, starbucks, etc...). What sort of delays would I be seeing in the streaming process? My connection at home is roughly 7 down and 1.5 upload.

MacBook Pro :: Report Crash Process Using Over 100 Percent Of CPU

Mar 28, 2012

For the past few days my macbook pro (lion 10.7.3) has been overheating and the fan has been going crazy.In my processes, there is one called "report crash" that is consistently using between 50% and 180% of the CPU. I force quit it, but it just comes back straight away.I looked into my logs to see what is causing it and there seems to be a continual launch/crash cycle related to com.apple.midiserver, whatever that is.Does anyone have a clue why the midiserver is fighting to be launched ad infinitum and causing my mac to go berserk?

MacBook :: Have A Process Sending Data To Telkomadsl?

Jul 4, 2012

I have recently discovered that a 'web' process has been sending data to an address which I have identified through VirusBarrier X6 to be "dsl-146-236-157 [URL]"   Over a 2 day period, 1,2gb was sent to this address.  I have since blocked these addresses through the virus scanner, but now I need to delete this process/es from my system.   I do not know how I got this 'process' downloaded, as it is not identified as a virus, malware, trojan etc. My research tells me that this has been seen on windows and other macs, and I want to see how to remove it.

MacBook Pro :: Hangs On Boot Process After Win7 Install

Jul 6, 2009

I have a (check sig) and just tried to install the Windows 7 RC 64-Bit onto a Bootcamp Partition. I had been using the Beta way back, but had cleared that partition in advance for a clean install. With that I had no problems...ran the 7 beta fine alongside OSX. I followed the same procedure I had done for the beta install with RC, following the guide on the internet. Everything seemed to work out peachy, Windows 7 booted fine, I added all my settings again. Then I switched over to OSX to eject the disc, which was fine although the boot in was quite sluggish. I set the boot drive as "Macintosh HD" in System Prefs, and proceeded to try to boot into Windows 7 again....this time it was no go.

The screen came up with the white cursor on black, and then the "Starting Windows" showed, with the animation above it. At some point during the animation, it just froze. My fans were at normal speed and everything. I tried many times, same story. So I thought I would shut down, boot into OSX, and try to erase the partition. That didn't work either. When booting into OSX, the start-up chime sounds with the white screen, then the gray Apple logo shows up....and that's where it stays. I reset the PRAM, no luck. What could be the reason it hangs on BOTH boot processes? Because for a short time they did both work, and I could not have erased my OSX partition or anything because I did boot into it once after installing the Win7 RC. I also can see both partitions when I boot holding Option...

MacBook Air :: System Will Not Restart After Software Update Process

Aug 5, 2009

I was doing the most recent software update today. During the process, it told me to power down. I did and now when I turn on the MBA, I'm only getting a black screen. I have tried a force restart (control-command-power), PRAM reset (command-option-P-R), and the SMC Reset (Shift-Control-Option Power). None of these steps corrected the problem. How I can get my MBA to boot?
