MacBook Pro :: How To Disable Auto Booting Into OS X

Sep 2, 2010

I got BootCamp setup with a Windows 7, however whenever I restart or turn on my MBP it automatically boots into Mac, and if I want to boot into windows i would have to hold on to the option/alt key at the start in order for me to choose which drive to boot from. So my question is whether there is a way so that every time I turn on the MBP it would automatically show up the 2 OSes for me to choose from?

MacBook Pro :: Disable Ambient Light Sensor (auto-dimming)?

Apr 28, 2007

I've noticed that the ambient light sensor in the MBP can be somewhat sensitive. Sometimes an action as simple as moving my hands up to the keyboard (from the side) triggers the "auto-dimming" feature of the screen and it slightly reduces the brightness of the screen, then quickly returns. This is rather bothersome.

I've got the option under Keyboard and Mouse "Illuminate keyboard under low-light conditions" unchecked, but the screen still dims if you cover the speakers. I've also got the option under Energy Saver "Automatically reduce the brightness of the display before sleep" unchecked as well.

I'm at a loss here. Is there not a way to disable this auto-dim feature? A Google search didn't turn up much of anything. Surely there must be a way...

OS X :: IMac Won't Auto Shut Down?

Feb 13, 2009

I have my iMac scheduled to shut down everyday at 12:30 am. Sometimes it will shut down and sometimes it won't. I've only had my iMac for about a month, but am I missing something here? Why won't it shut down automatically.

I had it scheduled to shut down at 12:30am, and I was already asleep. I woke up about 3am to get a glass of water and I checked my iMac and I was able to wake it up. What am I doing wrong, why won't it auto shut down?

OS X :: Disable Auto Mounting Of Selected Volumes?

Aug 30, 2009

I have a number of volumes on my computer and assorted drives, some of which I use very rarely, and I'd like to keep these from being mounted automatically, just to reduce the clutter in my sidebar.

Years ago there was a method of disabling the auto-mount feature of certain volumes, but I haven't the vaguest idea of how to do it now -- if in fact it can be done.

I've ordered Snow Leopard, but am still using 10.5.8 on a Mac Pro.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Disable The Auto-eject Of A Failing HD

Mar 31, 2012

My kids HD just started to fail.  Apple replaced it this AM, however my kid's TM backup is about 5 months old.  I am trying to recover the data from the old disk. 

She put the old disk into an enclosure and connected it to her MBP.  As I try to copy as much of the drive as possible it gets an error, ejects, then reconnects and give an annoying message that I didn’t eject properly.  This is making it very difficult to get all the data off. 

I figured if I mounted read-only that it’d stop doing that, but it does not.  I’ve run fsck, etc… 

All I need is for this stupid machine to log errors and move on just like single user mode.  However, I cannot use single user mode because I am 2000 miles away from the machine.  And using Facetime to remote control my kid has pushed me to the edge.  There has to be a way to make OSX as “unfriendly” as Linux. OSX needs a “pro” mode. 

So, I ask again.  How do I stop OSX from auto ejecting a disk when it errors?

OS X :: Finding Auto App To Clean Uninstalled App Pref

Jan 3, 2009

Is there an app that cleans up old uninstalled apps preferences from the system and User Library's? I already use OnyX, MainMenu, XSlimmer and other various apps to keep my MAC running at best performance. But when I browse my Library's I see preferences for apps I don't have anymore. Instead of manually going through them all is there an automated app that looks in my Applications folder and then my Library and figures out what should stay and what should go. Also looking in /Library/Receipts/ there are also pkg files left by uninstalled apps. I know CCleaner does something similar with the Windows Registry. What MAC App will clean these left behind files?

MacBook Pro :: Clean Installation Of Lion On It

Mar 21, 2012

I have my 15" MacBook Pro, Mid-2010 model, which had Snow Leapord and then from the AppStore I had upgraded the OS to Lion.Now I'd like to have a clean installation of Lion. I have few constraints and have already tried few options but without luck. From the AppStore I downloaded the OS Lion (from Purchases) and I saw a note about create a bootable DVD and have created one. I tried the following... 

Problem #1 : My MBP wouldn't boot off the DVD. It just keeps spinning.

Problem #2 : I then tried restarting and then choosing "Options" while coming up to choose the Disk. Again it just spins.

Problem #3 : I chose "Command R" for recovery mode but it again tries to download OS Lion afresh and that's not an option for me right now (I'm not in USA now, but in India. No high bandwidth connection) How can I do a fresh installation of Lion?

MacBook Pro :: Clean Install Of Lion For A Potential Buyer?

Apr 9, 2012

I bought my MacBook Pro in January and quickly discovered that most Adobe products don't work on Lion. I'm looking to sell and have a prospective buyer when I realized that I wasn't sure how to do a clean install of Lion for a potential buyer. Do I need to buy a copy of Lion from App store in order to do a clean install for a new buyer? Is there a way to clean the HD of my user profile and info without reinstalling Lion, or do I need to do a clean install? How do I do a clean install if necessary?

MacBook Pro :: Lion Clean Install Stuck In Mid 2009?

May 29, 2012

Mid 2009 MBP here. Original disk was failing so I replaced it with a Seagate Momentus XT and Lion refused to install. Formatted the drive correctly and made sure it was GUID partition. Even went as far as removing a memory module because I had heard that having more than 2 Gigs could cause issues during installation. Also made sure that the drive had the latest firmware.  

Flash forward and I returned the drive and got a Western Digital Scorpio Black and have the same problem: Stuck at 21 minutes.  

Currently installing with a 10.7.3 USB drive. I've tried numerous times with a 10.7.0 disk as well as the original Snow Leopard restore discs that came with the machine. Is the mid 2009 just incompatible with these drives?
