OS X :: Printer Pausing In Leopard Requires Admin Password?

Nov 19, 2008

In our higher education Mac computer lab, a printer may become paused (I am not sure why). But this requires an administrator password to unpause the printer, which only the admin in another building has. Is there a way to stop this type of activity? What causes a printer to become paused? Is there a way to not require admin status to continue?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Software Update Requires Password When Not Running?

Mar 31, 2012

I was just browsing the Internet as usual, and suddenly my Mac popped up a dialog box with the message "Software Update wants to make changes", asking me for an administrator's password. I checked in the Dock and Software Update was NOT running! 

I clicked Cancel on the box and it popped up again 2-3 times before finally going away. Can Software Update run in the background without any user intervention now? Could it be some kind of new Mac malware?

My iMac is suddenly running slow, especially Safari and the finder is asking for the administrator password to delete some random files. I just repaired permissions so it can't be that.The iPad is fine with download speeds of 15+ Mbps vs 2 Mbps for the iMac.

Applications :: ITunes 9 Requires Password Verification For All Store Purchases?

Oct 27, 2009

Can someone please help me figure out why it is that iTunes is now requiring that I enter my iTunes password seemingly every day for any new purchases I make, even though I've checked the checkbox to "remember password". I can't be sure but this behavior either started happening when I upgraded to Snow Leopard, or when I upgraded iTunes to version 9. I know this must have been addressed on these forums somewhere, but I wasn't able to come up with any thing meaningful when I did some searching for the answer.

Intel Mac :: When Delete A Folder Requires A Password And It Doesn't Go In The Trash

May 14, 2012

I made a clean install of lion as i had a little bit of a problems after few years i was uning my iMac.. All of the issues were gone but know i got a new problem with the trash ..  

Every time i delete something (i.e: a folder that i dont need any more) i requires a password.. Then instead of that folder to appear in the Trash (as it should be), it is automatically gone and do not appear in the trash! what is this but i am suspicious that is the password protection thing that is responsible for that!

Applications :: Safari Unable To Save Login And Password / Requires More Memory For Use

Dec 15, 2009

I cannot get a solid answer on this one. Since the update it seems that safari fails to save my login info. For example I have to re-enter my username and pass for macrumors atleast once everyday. Also it seems that Safari occasionally hogs more memory and resources after extended use. Anyone else?

Laptops :: Migration Assistant Requires Excessive Password Entries - How To Configure Settings

Dec 9, 2009

I used Migration Assistant to transfer apps and files from iBook G4, 10.4.11 to MacBook 10.6.2. The apps transferred and work great, except for iPhoto. I am still working on that one. The photos are in the MacBook, but I think I need to drag them into iPhoto. (?) The bigger concern is that once I found my transferred files in Users, I could not open any of the files without using my password - every time, every file. Further, even after opening the files, I cannot trash any of them without, again, using my password. Is there any way to get around this?

I tried not to use a different password when setting up the transfer, but Migration Assistant would not allow me to use the same one.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Email Address Requires Host Name In Address Field

May 5, 2012

I'm trying to setup mail on Lion Sever (7.3). The only way I can get it to accept incoming mail is to specify the whole FQDN of the server in the address.For example the domain name is and I have a user set up called john. Sending mail to works.

But sending mail to (which is what I want) returns an error:
554 554 5.7.1 <>: Relay access denied (state 13).

For internal DNS, I have: - primary - alias - [URL] - alias server.example.comMX record [URL]

I see references here to problems in mail on 7.3 but not this specific problem.

My Mid 2009 MacBook Pro freezes regularly.  There does not seem to be any pattern to when this happens.  I do not get a grey screen, and it does not freeze for long.  I have reinstalled Mavericks, and I have installed new RAM.  Nothing I have tried as made a difference.

MacBook Pro :: OSX Mavericks Regularly Loses WiFi Connected Printer?

Aug 20, 2014

My MacBook Pro OS 10.9.4 regularly "loses" my home printer, set up through my WIFI. Even though I can see it in the Printer Menu, it claims I am not connected. So, I delete said printer. When I go to add a new printer, it cannot find said printer and I cannot figure out how to manually tell it that it is sitting right here on my desk.

MacBook Pro :: Pop Up Tabs Regularly Appearing Across All Browsers Advertising MacKeeper

Sep 12, 2014

I have, what seems to be a common, an issue with pop up tabs regularly appearing across all browsers advertising 'MacKeeper'. I understand this is a trojan or malware. 

I have tried to combat the problem by removing various files as suggested on other threads, removed extensions from my browsers, and today re installed OS X on the recommendation of Apple's online chat team, but am still experiencing the issue.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Mac Is Crashing Regularly

May 30, 2012

I am on the latest update of Snow Leopard. It seems that if I leave the computer to go to the screensaver automatically, chances are that it may crash. I haven't changed my energy saver preferences for months - so if it is related to that it's not something I've changed.Looking in system.log you see lots of messages at crash time of "received notification of WindowServer event port death".Apple, are you investigating? This looks to me to be a serious problem. One of my colleagues is experiencing something similar. I switched to using using a mac in 2007 and immediately found it to be a better machine in every way (usability, reliability, design) than my previous windows laptop. [code]

OS X :: Safari Freezing Regularly Since Snow Leopard

Sep 21, 2009

As the thread title states, ever since I updated to snow leopard, both safari and firefox freeze up when I access the ESPN home page and occasionally a few other sites that I have never experienced problems with before on leopard. However, if i turn off the enable plug-ins button in the safari preferences pane, most of the sites work just fine. I thought it may be flash related but i have since updated the programs it it continues to freeze up on the ESPN page. side note, this happens on both my work and home computers (very different specs between the two).
