MacBook Pro :: Cannot Use OS X Mavericks 10.9.4 At All Freezing And Apps Will Not Open

Sep 7, 2014

I am not able to open the apps on my Macbook Pro OS X 10.9.4, they just bounce.  Activity Monitor gets so frozen I cannot find out what the hold up is.  Screen freezes in some of the system preferences as well - Users, Parent Controls Accessibility.  I do not have a disk, no disk drive to reinstall.

OS X Mavericks :: Apps Now Always Open A Window?

Jun 19, 2014

After my last OS update, all every time I open an app, it opens a window (where I last left it) and I have to click that away before going to the folder I wan to open. Well, it does not drive me crazy but is really annoying.

OS X Mavericks :: Force Quit Showing Apps Still Open

Jun 27, 2014

'm showing iBooks, Pages, & Preview are still open via the Force Quit dialog but I haven't used them since the previous evening.I have an older Macbook (Aluminum, Late 2008) so I try to run as lean as possible. There are no extra windows open that I can find.  Double clicking them from Force Quit brings them up to then quit from the application proper, apps to quit when I tell them to.Has this to do with iCloud integration? (Like Pages wasn't quite done with an iCloud upload before I quit).Should I try a reinstall of the apps or Mavericks?

OS X Mavericks :: Clear And Prevent Multiple Identical Apps On (Open With)?

Dec 5, 2014

I understand why "Open With" includes both old and new versions of updated apps. Fine. But how do I CLEAR the list and prevent this from continuing? (I'd expect it to offer a "Clear List" option at the bottom. It doesn't.)

MacBook Pro :: Crashing Repeatedly - Many Apps Such As ITunes Are Freezing

Aug 21, 2014

Mac is running latest OSX Mavericks software.... But lately, my Mac is crashing repeatedly when I attempt to use iTunes or iBooks, both also the latest releases.  Syncing with either iTunes or iBooks is nearly impossible.  No disk repair or verification errors.  I am thinking that there is some rogue software glitch that has me.  I am thinking that I need to do a factory reset followed by a time machine data recovery.

OS X :: Apps Freezing - Can't Force Quit

Jul 28, 2008

I have a Mac Pro with 10.5.4 (Intel 2.66 Dual-Core -- 5GB ram) installed. Things have been running smoothly for a long time, but recently I've had a few kernel panics, which seem to have gone away, but now it's very common for applications to freeze, and I can't unfreeze them by force-quitting--I have to power the G5 down by holding the power button.

MacBook Pro :: Can't Open A Specific Folder Without Mac Freezing?

Jun 6, 2010

I have a brand new macbook pro that I bought about 4 months ago. I am running snow leopard and out of the blue one day my computer gave me the spinning wheel and it went on for so long I had to power off my notebook by holding down the power. When I turned it back on I was stuck on the apple screen and I couldn't get passed it. So, I did a clean install and just moved all of my personal files and folders that my computer backed up to their original location.

After doing all of this and being up and running again I noticed when I try to access a personal folder on my system that contains images (jpegs, pngs) and some videos and psd files that my computer starts freezing up again and spinning and I have to power it off to get it to stop. I have resorted my permissions and ran Onyx once a week since this has happened and the folder is still giving me issues. I need to access this folder asap.

MacBook Pro :: Freezing And Can't Have More Than Three Programs Open At Same Time

My mac is freezing all the time. I can't have more than three programs open at the same time, like forefox, word and spotify. If I do that, it crashes and have to turn it off with the power button. I have some big programs on it, like all the Adobe programs. The mac is just over a year old. It have a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5 processor, and have 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR 3 memory, also running iOS 10.9.4.

OS X :: System Apps Keep Freezing And Other Weird Stuff?

Jan 25, 2009

I've been experiencing some weird problems on my Mac Pro for the last few days. It's a Xeon quad 2.8, 6GB memory and running 10.5.6, never had any problems with it before. So the problems I'm having is that some system applications becomes unresponsive (freeze and fun beach ball spinning). In most cases I'm not able to force quit the frozen apps either. Also, in the dock it says "Application Not Responding" when I right click on them (like it should), but when I check the "Force Quit Applications" window there is no such text (there should be some red text after the application name if I'm not mistaken).

These are the apps that has frozen the last few days: System preferences, Disk Utility, System Profiler, Software Update, the main menu has also frozen at times.

When I try to shut down the Mac Pro it quits all the applications as usual, but then just stops and shows the wallpaper and nothing else (so I have to use the power button on Mac Pro itself to completely shut it down. When I want to put my Mac to sleep it takes way longer than usual as well. Today after I had been away for a while I came back to see the screen saver active, but in my Energy settings I've set it to shut down the displays before the screen saver would activate � so I have no idea why the screen saver was on...

I have locked my System Preferences (with the little lock in the lower left) but when I click on the lock it just says "Authorizing..." next to it and System Preferences freezes (no password window pops up).

I'm lost. I can't for the life of me figure out what could be wrong. I've used Repaired Permissions without any luck. (There was some error messages, but now I can't even open up Disk Utility again without it freezing directly at start up.)

All I can think about is that something I've installed would have messed something up, not sure. The last days I've installed: Grammarian Pro X (trial), iWork '09 (retail) and Handbreak. (and I've updated other software like Adium, but I doubt that's the problem)

MacBook Air :: Freezing With Light Games Such As Open Arena?

Feb 21, 2008

I just had a few questions for the people out there who do a little light gaming on their Air. Yes I know it's not a gaming laptop of course. My question is has any one experienced choking or freezing with light games such as Open Arena and Warsow. Both of these games can easily play on a old PIII with 128MB of RAM. They both play smooth as hell for about 15-20 minutes and then out of no where it's starts choking every minute. I've kept an eye on the heat and CPU usage which are both fine.

MacBook Pro :: Freezing (not For Short Time ) When Open IPhoto?

May 26, 2010

As I was passing around a shop where they sold MBP's of all sizes, I tried them out. Amazingly, every single one of them seemed to freeze when I opened iPhoto, for not a short time. Am I not understanding something about it or is it just freezing?

OS X Mavericks :: MacBook Pro Freezing While Browsing Internet?

Jun 30, 2014

Almost daily, I will be in the middle of browsing the internet and pages will just stop loading. Following this, any already-opened application I click on will freeze, including Finder. If I try to open any new applications, the icon will bounce over and over in the Dock but never open. If I close my web browser and try to reopen it, it tells me that there is already a copy of the browser running and I cannot open another one. The only way to remedy this I have found is to hold down the power button and shut off the computer. Once I turn the computer back on, everything runs normally. I originally though it may have been my web browser (Google Chrome) so I recently switched to Firefox, and the problem still persists. It is extremely annoying.

OS X Mavericks :: Macbook Pro Apps Not Responding

Aug 30, 2014

I have a late 2010 Macbook Pro. I do a lot of Audio Production and Post Production work on my MBP. I have owned Macs for years and am almost always able to use, update, upgrade, install, uninstall, reconfigure, test, diagnose, and fix them on my own UNTIL recently. About a year ago I bought an SSD from OWS and a Optical Bay HD Kit for installing a 2nd drive. I removed my Optical and Installed a New 1GB SATA Hard Drive using the kit in that bay. I have no problems with that Drive that I'm aware of. I removed my old 500 GB Hitachi SATA and replaced it with a New OWS Mercury Extreme SSD. I have no problems with that drive either, that I am able to find through extensive testing. I upgraded the RAM to the full 8 GB. The factory bracket that holds the RAM in place doesn't work well (at least not anymore, if ever they did) as the tabs don't hold the ram in tight. I wedged tiny bits of cardboard in to hold it tight, it seems to do the trick. I did a clean install, not from a backup. Upon the hardware upgrades and clean install the MBP became much faster. It was very responsive and seems to really work nicely. I began installing my industry third party applications such as Logic Pro, Ableton, NI Maschine, Traktor, etc.

Everything worked great except that Ableton Live 9 then started not launching the GUI upon initialization occasionally. Then it got so bad it was inhibiting my workflow. I did a clean install again. No luck. Then over the period of the next few months the MBP began lagging sometimes on initialization of apps, and just acting a bit quirky but just occasionally while mostly working well. Then other apps began to follow suit and would just stall with the 'application not responding' in the dock icon. This would all happen randomly. I then noticed in the morning upon first opening and powering on, the apps would open. But they would not open more than a few times in succession. So about 3 weeks ago I did another clean install, upgraded to Mavericks upon making sure all the apps are compatible with the platform.

I then updated the OWS SSD HD with new firmware, I updated all the apps on my computer. Then I repaired permissions many many times,  and repaired all the drives from the Disk Utility. Upon no change in the MBP behavior I ran the hardware testing from the install disk with no bad results. So then I ran it in loop mode for 18 hours. It shows all hardware is working properly. I reset the PRAM and the SMC. I ran terminal command tests, I ran the console. I booted from another MBP and ran the Disk repair from it with nothing showing as bad. I have spent hours and hours on forums with no luck. I consulted an IT who works for NBC and he was stumped. I finally took it in to a Genius Bar week before last where they proceeded to do a lot of what I had done with the addition of running their in store repair software which I didn't have. They kept it and ran tests in the back in loop mode for a few days. They then called me and said it was ready for pickup and that there was nothing wrong with it.

MacBook Pro :: Erased All Documents Folder - Cannot Open Apps

Oct 15, 2010

I have a 2007 15" MacBook Pro that I'm trying to clean up to give to my wife, well I think I did a bad thing. As I was going through things to delete in the trash, I accidentally deleted the "All Documents Folder", now I can't get any of the apps to work. I haven't emptied the trash bin. So I thought maybe I could copy them back to my desktop, well that wasn't a good thing since there was like 12,000 files and it really slowed the laptop down. So I thought I would do a complete clean install using the original start up disk. Well following the instruction to restart the computer, after the restart I get a diagonal screen and can't read it because the picture is staggered. So I eject the install disc and restart the laptop and everything is fine, but still can't open anything, because it says app can't is in the trash.
