MacBook :: Keyboard Stops Responding And Then Works After Reboot?

May 2, 2012

My computer will start running really slowly and then the keyboard stops working, then after 30 seconds or so I lose the ability to click but the mouse still moves. Command-option-esc for force quit still works some of the time though but refreshing everything from there doesn't help. After I reboot everything goes back to normal. This has happened every other day or so for about a week.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Just Randomly Stops Responding

Apr 26, 2012

In the last few days I've had a recurring problem:Randomly and without any obvious context in terms of actions, apps etc, my trackpad simply stops responding.I have all options enabled on the trackpad, such as soft click+drag, and the problem has so far only occured when performing that: drop'n drag.

It get's stuck and I cant release whatever I've gripped.I am now only able to use the keyboard and have to reboot to be able to use the trackpad again.After reboot the problem returns randomly after a while.I can't think of any recent software updates or additions that have coincided with the problem, except installing Livedrive Briefcase recently.

The problem however does not specifically occur when working with that (though Livedrive is set to run in the background).The problem occurs more and more often, usually after I have closed the lid (sleep). Also, I am able to use my Magic Trackpad, which in turn brings the build in trackpad back to working!

Intel Mac :: Internet Keeps Stopping Works 5 Minutes And Then Stops?

Jun 10, 2012

Got a Mac OS X Version 10.7.4 last week and first off it was fine the Internet connected perfectly and was the fastest connection I've seen. But this morning I came down and it connected for 5 minutes and then although it appeared to be working (The wifi bars were full) the internet wouldn't search for any sites. All the while my iPod and laptop still connected. I did a clean-up of the Mac but that didn't make a difference. It seems to be able to connect for that first 5 minutes every time I restart the computer, but you can't do anything in 5 minutes. I need to correct this, do you have any idea how?

OS X Mavericks :: Magic Trackpad Stops Responding On Wakeup After Upgrade?

Sep 11, 2014

I have a 27" iMac purchased in July 2011.  I never had any issues with the trackpad before upgrading to Mavericks.  I upgraded a few months ago and started having sporadic issues with the trackpad.  When the iMac woke up, everything seemed fine at first.  About once or twice a week, after it had been working for about a minute (just enough time to start web browsing), the trackpad would suddenly stop responding.  It then progressed to being more consistent (every other day).  The cursor was still visible and the keyboard still worked.  The trackpad was still on but apparently not connected.  I thought it was the batteries, but new batteries didn't work. I could get the trackpad to work again by using Spotlight to open the Bluetooth System Preferences.  The trackpad worked immediately when Bluetooth preferences were opened (nothing needed to be changed; it would just start working). 

However, it would stop responding after about ten minutes.  It was interesting because even if I left the Bluetooth System Preferences open, it would still stop responding after about ten minutes.  I could use the keyboard to make the preferences window active and it would immediately work again.  It would then work again for a few minutes and then stop.  I found that removing the trackpad and re-connecting it would cause the trackpad to start working again more consistently.  It would only stop if the iMac went back to sleep for an extended period (overnight).   

The useful keyboard shortcuts are cmd + spacebar to open Spotlight, type bluetooth, use the arrow keys to go to Bluetooth system preferences (hit enter), use the arrow keys to go down to the trackpad, press spacebar to unconnect, again to confirm, and then after the trackpad is automatically rediscovered, press spacebar again to pair it. 

This went on for about a month, when I had what I suspect was an unrelated problem.  The trackpad started acting as if it was being held down (left click was always being pressed).  I took it into the Apple Store and they confirmed it was broken.  At that point I had a brand new trackpad.   

The issue had gone back to happening every other week or so.  I thought it might be interference, but I've since physically moved apartments and all the objects around it. It's been a couple months now and it's back to happening every couple of days or so.  Since the trackpad is brand new, I have to think this is a software issue.  I've noticed the following consistently: 

1) It only stops responding if I've put it to sleep (I usually do so with a hot corner, but I don't have any reason to believe that's related) and haven't used the computer for more than 12 hours.

2) It'll always work right when it wakes up.  It'll stop fairly consistently 1 - 2 minutes after waking up.

3) Time Machine seems to be busy doing something when the trackpad stops (the little icon is spinning in a circle if I have a Finder window open).  Uncertain if it's always doing something or if it's coincidence that I've noticed it more recently.

4) As mentioned above, opening the Bluetooth System Preferences will always get the trackpad to respond, but then it'll stop after a few minutes.  Unpairing and reestablishing the pairing will fix the issue for awhile (at the very least until the next time the iMac sleeps).

5) I may be imagining this, but before upgrading to Mavericks, I think it used to show the message that the trackpad was connected when the iMac woke up.  I no longer see that message unless I remove the connection and setup the pairing again. 

I've seen lots of people with various issues with Bluetooth connectivity and Mavericks.  I'm on 10.9.4.

MacBook :: Skype Stops Working After 20 Minutes?

Jan 11, 2011

Skype stops working after 20 minutes - the other person can hear me fine, but I cant understand a word the other person is saying (very digitalized). This doesn't happen on the PC so I'm wondering if it's an issue with the MAC. Does anyone have the same problem? Any ideas how to solve it?

MacBook :: Internet Stops Working A Few Minutes?

Dec 17, 2009

I have a macbook that is about 2 years old, maybe a little less, and recently it's been giving me trouble. Every time I go online (on firefox or safari), the internet stops working after about 20 minutes. It used to be about every hour but it's more frequent now. To fix it I have to restart. Once I restarted and the internet didn't even work. It's getting to be immensely frustrating since I have to save everything else I'm working on, restart, and then reopen everything. I don't know much about computers but I'm using a wireless that's shared with one other mac and one other pc in the house. Any ideas of what I should do?

MacBook Pro :: 13 - Network Interface Stops Responding

Jun 23, 2014

I work NOC Support / Operations for a decent sized provider in the midwest-ish area. I configure radios, routers, switches, etc CONSTANTLY. I need an ethernet interface. So I have the ThunderBolt Gig Ethernet adapters.  

I plug one in every day, running DHCP, no issues. Then I roll it over to a private IP to setup a radio. At this point, the interface is dropping (because I am rebooting the radio over and over), and I have to change the IP on it consistently. After making four to six changes, the interface just stops responding. In the network prefs, its red, as if it doesn't have a good working connection. I open the network anaylizer, and it shows me that the interface is up, with no IP.  

I've disabled the interface by turning it off, nothing. I have unplugged the adapter and the cable, network anaylizer still shows the port up and negotiated at 100/1000, but theres nothing there...

MacBook Pro :: Graphics Card Stops Responding On BOOTCAMP?

Jun 15, 2012

Since I had to jump through all kinds of hoops of the actual apple support page, I eventually turned to the community now, which as ironically a whole lot easier. Anyways, My problem is basically with BootCamp.I'm trying to run the CryEngine 3 SDK on a late 2011 macbook Pro, and the specs including the graphics card should be enough to handle it easily.Yet everytime I try to launch it, it plays for a little while (2 minutes) then comes up with an error along the lines of "Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered". 

I've checked and I have the latest drivers for the graphics card on the mac installed including the Catalyst Control Centre porgram. It seems like it should work, but it refuses to.I've read up on it a bit and it may be a problem with overheating, since when the mac beging running the CryEngine the fan starts going like crazy, basically at its maximum capacity, so It might be a problem with Over heating. 

I've also heard that due to a few compatibility issues with Windows 7, the graphics dont switch properly which leads to this error and can be fixed by entering the windows BIOS and switching the graphics switching from dynamic to fixed, however i'm not sure if I really want to meddle with the BIOS. 

I've checked both the CPU and the total RAM when running CryEngine however the RAM only gets to around 50% whilst the CPU barely tops 20%. Also the graphics card being a AMD Radeon HD 6770M is something that should be able to handle it.

MacBook Air :: WiFi Works Only For Few Minutes For This Device

Jun 23, 2014

I have created a wi-fi network with a time capsule which works fine for every device: 2 iPhones, one iPad, apple tv a 13’’ macbook pro.Whenever I use my macbook air the wi-fi works for a few minutes then the connection slows down and stops, and at the same time all of the other devices on the network hang up, the wi-fi connection appear to be on but nothing loads. As soon as i turn the wi-fi off on the air, the connection resume normally on the other devices... then the cycle repeats if i turn it back on...this is really frustrating!

Since the other devices don’t have any problems unless the macbook air is online, I’m assuming there’s something wrong with it but I don’t quite know what... interestingly if I use it on other wi-fi networks (like at work) it seems to be working just fine...I have OS X 10.9.3 installed. this is an 11'' macbook air, mid 2013 model, 1.7 GHz Intel Core i7 with 4 GB of memory.

MacBook Air :: Keyboard And TrackPad Not Responding

Jun 15, 2009

The other day my battery died on me and after I had plugged it in and restarted, I was unable to enter in my password at the login screen because the keyboard and trackpad wouldn't respond. I tried repairing the disk and permissions but I still can't get past the login screen. I know I can always reinstall leopard but there are a few files I haven't had the chance to backup. Any way to get back those files before I reinstall?

OS X :: IMac 10.6.3 Takes 15 Minutes To Reboot?

Apr 8, 2010

For about a week now, every time I boot my iMac mid-2007 20" running 10.6.3 I get the following problems

-Booting takes about 15 minutes of seeing the apple logo, and a bar that fills slowly under it...

-When it finally boots all the dock icons are reset to the ones you get with a brand new mac, spaces and expose is reset as well.

-Spotlight reindexes Macintosh HD.

-Adium loses all contact icons

-Mouse loses all it's custom settings.

-Login items are gone, I have tried not to re-enable those.

-Shut down takes about 10 minutes as well, while I see only the blue screen of shut down...

It seems that it is losing more and more settings every day. Today I had to turn on time machine again, although it was on before shut down...

Is this like losing an application support folder or something like that?

Applications do not seem intact as well.

Safari loses all web screenshots from cover flow iTunes reupdates the library etc....

What's up witn all these?

OS X :: EyeTV Stops Video On MBA After Few Minutes?

Oct 31, 2009

I just change a old MBA 1.6 GHz (OSX 10.6.1) for MBA 2.13 GHz (also OSX 10.6.1) and haven problem with EyeTV (3.2.1 version) via Pinacle Hibrid Stick 330e. Soft start excellent - I can see video for few minutes (3,4-5) and than video stops - audio is going (but only for next 2-3 minutes). To see something I have to restart soft or unplug an plug stick to USB port (I do not use HUB, I only use extension of USB cable - MBA have not so much space to plug directly Pinacle Stick). I have to say that on old MBA everything works fine, same OSX version, same USB extension cable, etc.). I try to see if soft and stick works on another computer - I use MacBook Black version (last black configuration) and results: no problems. Video do not stops! I try to find solution on macs forums but I did not find anybody who have this problem.

OS X :: Connecting To Servers Stops Working Until I Reboot?

Mar 17, 2010

I have two shares that are always connected on my mac (two folders via smb share). They are NAS devices. They are also connected on numerous other macs in the house. On my mac pro, once in a while, I will click in the share and nothing happens. I will disconnect the share and then try to reconnect, and I just get "Connecting to server" forever (until I cancel). A reboot does the trick, but a reboot is a pain because I have two VM sessions, numerous jobs in queue, etc.

Is there a way to restart that daemon that handles smb mac shares? I already tried to stop and start network services.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Stutters Or Stops Working Temporarily

May 4, 2010

I noticed my trackpad started acting funky last night. It won't happen right away when I turn my MBP on, but usually after some time (depends). First thing that happens: it responds slowly; it will move the pointer less than it would normally and it will judder along. Pressing harder doesn't help and sometimes two-finger scrolling won't work one way, or sometimes using my other finger will work better. After some more time, it will stop responding entirely or get unusably slow. I noticed restarting fixes it (temporarily; once again, it depends). Just before posting this, it happened until it didn't want to work at all, and I let it sit for a few minutes, came back, and it worked fine. Ten or so minutes later, its still working (no restart). It's troubling and I'll probably take it to an Apple Store to have it checked out, but I won't have time to do that for some time, so I'd like to see if this is possibly something well-known or fixable.

I thought it might be dirty, but I cleaned it, well, a few times, and still nothing. My hands are clean, too. I thought it might be something I "spilled" onto my keyboard a few days earlier; it wasn't anything watery, it was a rather thick consistency. I hope that isn't it, as I cleaned it quick and well, and it wasn't on the trackpad, and the keyboard works perfectly. The only thing I was doing when it first happened was video chatting via MSN (MSN gets my Mac hot, and I was worried it was the heat that did something, but IDK for sure). I only started using MSN about a week ago, and it gets my Mac really heated each time I use it. I did some searching on Google about this, but nothing quite like my situation. I haven't looked at everything, but, nothing yet.

OS X :: Keyboard Stops Responding After 10.6.5 Update

Nov 18, 2010

I've noticed after upgrading to 10.6.5 that my keyboard will not work when I come back after an extended period of time away from the machine. At first, after applying only the 10.6.5 update, neither keyboard nor mouse would work unless I unplugged and replugged the keyboard (the mouse is connected directly to the KB). Later, I installed the combo update, and then the mouse worked but the keyboard still wouldn't. This is after my display sleeps - as long as I continue to use the computer, everything works fine. I have a mid-2009 Mac Pro 2.66 GHz quad-core (Nahalem) but with the older (clear, G5) keyboard and a mighty mouse.

I starting having problems with my MacBook this morning. After being asleep I started using it again and I wasn't getting a responce from mouse or trackpad clicks. The cursor will still move but I can't select anything.  I did a hard restart once and it went back to normal. After it happened again I did another hard restart and it wouldn't boot up again. I did two hard shut downs/restarts and it finally booted up again. Although it's still not responding.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Completely Leveled With Rest Of Body?

May 13, 2010

Is the trackpad supposed to be completely leveled with the rest of the body? The reason I ask is because I have noticed that on some MBPs the trackpad is "pushed" down into the body a little. It is not much but it is definitely visible, there is an indentation. Is this normal or is it a manufacturing defect?

Keyboard Stops Responding During Osx Server Install 10.5

Mar 3, 2012

I just used an OSX Server v 10.5.0 DVD to upgrade a computer (1.6 ghz G5 tower, 1.5GB RAM) from osx 10.3.9 server. When I get to the 'Serial number' panel, none of the fields will accept any keyboard input. The keyboards worked prior to the upgrade. They work fine on another mac. The eject, volume, and caps lock keys all work. Just the fields themselves in the Serial Number (and the registered to, and organization) fields are ignoring input.

MacBook Air :: Keyboard And Trackpad Not Responding After Sleep Mode

Jan 4, 2009

I just got back from an 8-day long trip to mainland China and when I got back I realized that I had left my MBA unplugged and in sleep mode. When I came back, I opened the lid and found that hitting the keys on the keyboard didn't work. Then I realized that the battery was probably completely out of charge. After I plugged it in, I opened the lid again and hit the power button.

The device powered up but after it got to the login screen I could not type my password in or move the cursor. I tried plugging in a USB mighty mouse but it still wouldn't register. I was replacing some of the USB driver files on the MBA before I left and I think that might be the problem. How do I fix this if there's no network boot or firewire? I think my warranty might be voided too because it's had a few nasty bumps but I don't think that's what's causing the problem.
