OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why Clicking Red X Does Not Close Program

Mar 24, 2012

I am a first-time Mac user and have a question about quiting/closing programs.

When you click the red button/X in the upper left corner of a program, is there a setting in Lion to make the program actually close/quit instead of having to go to the menu at the top and click Quit?

This was annoying on a windows mobile phone - it is still annoying on the iMac and I could not find any settings in System Preferences to change how clicking on the red button closes a program.

OS X :: How To Close A Window/program While In Expose Mode

Apr 18, 2010

I was wondering if there was a way to close windows while in expose mode. For example, I hate it when I go to a site and a few pop ups come up and i turn on expose mode and i have to click on each one and make it come up and then press exit and then reopen expose and then click on another pop up and then exit and reopen expose and etc etc... To be more specific its kind of like the new windows 7 feature where you hover your mouse over the icon at the bottom and those little windows come up (kinda like expose) but those little windows have little x's where you can just exit the window without having to click on it and then exit and then go back down to the little icon and etc etc.

Intel Mac :: Freezes On Any Program After Startup?

Jul 4, 2012

My 5 y.o. aluminum iMac recently went kaput on me. Problems it has: 

-Freezes on any program after startup

-Freezes during safe boot mode; grey line won't progress past first 10% or so

-DVD stuck in optical drive and nothing works to get it out, so I can't boot from my install disk

-fsck -fy doesn't complete, and keeps timing out

-Migration Assistant either stalls the receiving computer, or just gives me "network" errors (even though I'm connected to the internet), or other errors. 

I can't run terminal, disk utility, or any other kind of programs.How do I rescue my files from my failing iMac??

what the difference is between the commands 'close window' and 'close all windows'? They seem to me to both have the same effect. In my earlier version of Safari, if I opened a new web page, it just replaced the earlier one, now though the new pages just keep accumulating. T

Windows On Mac :: Program Not Running On Bootcamp - This Program Cannot Run On A Computer With Less Than 64 Megabytes Of Ram

Aug 24, 2009

I have a 15-inch MacBook Pro, the new unibody ones, and I installed Windows XP, using BootCamp.

I made it a 29 or so GB partition, so it used the FAT32 formatting.

The program I tried to install is the eyeQ speed reading program, and the laptop exceeds every single one of the recommended requirements.

The problem comes when I am attempting to install the program, I keep getting an error message in which it says "This program cannot run on a computer with less than 64 megabytes of ram."

Last time I checked my laptop has 4 GB of ram, and it says the same thing when I checked it while running Windows XP.

My only guess, which I made while typing this, was that I should have formatted the Windows partition using NTSF.

Applications :: Screen Capture / Selection Program Besides Mac's OEM Program?

Nov 11, 2008

I want to capture selections on my screen and add comments. Is there a program out there that will allow me to do that? I don't like the "grab it" program because it saves the captured file in a Tiff format instead of a Jpeg format.

MacBook Pro :: Close The MacKeeper Pop Up Ad?

Apr 11, 2012

I was just browsing on Safari when I went to a website and this mackeeper pop up ad came up. It tells me that to keep my mac safe or whatever, I have to install this mackeeper thing. I knew it was a virus so I was trying to figure out how to close it but there is no option to close it, the only option is to click ok. i've tried command+w and that doesn't work either. I have also tried to force quit safari but when I open up safari again, it re-opens the tab. i got my macbook in january of this year, i really don't want it to get a virus lol.

MacBook Pro :: Why Won't It Go To Sleep When Close The Lid

May 2, 2012

All of a sudden, my MacBook Pro has stopped going to sleep when I close the lid. Instead, the indicator light on the front stays on steadily. When I then open the lid, I am asked to log in again, but before I can type anything, the window goes completely black. My only choice at this point has been to hold the power button down long enough to shut the laptop off. Then I wait a minute or so before restarting. Is there a setting I need to check to prevent all of this from happening? I have tried restarting in Safe Mode, then restarting normally, but still the laptop will not go to sleep when I close the lid.

MacBook Pro :: Seems To Turn Off Whenever Close The Lid

May 14, 2012

Whenever I close the lid, my mac seems to turn off. Once I open it the screen will be a greyish hue (you can still see the windows and desktop) but there is a loading bar with a number of small vertical bars. This happens whenever I close the lid leave it for a while (1 - 2 minutes). What is this and how do I fix it?

MacBook Pro :: Its Not Sleeping On Lid Close?

Jun 19, 2012

I'm having a strange problem with my MacBook Pro. I just began using it with a second display (with the lid open, of course), and ever since I started doing that, my laptop will intermittently not sleep when I close the lid (while it's disconnected from the display). What happens is that I close the lid and the Apple logo becomes dark, indicating that the display is off. The white light on the front stays on, however, and then, suddenly the Apple logo on the lid will light up again. After this, one of two things can happen. Most of the time, the screen and the computer both go to sleep after about 30-45 seconds. Sometimes, however, it seems to get stuck with both the display and computer on. This concerns me because I travel a lot, and I worry that the computer will overheat in the bag if I put it in while it hasn't gone to sleep.

OS X :: Close The Macbook And Lost The Signal?

Jul 2, 2007

OK. I feel so stupid right now. I'm pretty sure this has been answered 100 times already in here.
I connected the cable to my WS external LCD and I can't get it to fill up the whole screen. I normally set my screen to 1080X1050 under Vista. When I set that under my Macbook I only get small screen in the middle of my monitor.

Second question. I press F7 to get the picture to display on my monitor. When I close the macbook I lost the signal. Do I have to wait until the Macbook go into sleep mode before I can close it?

MacBook Pro :: Close Lid Without Sleeping When Connected To TV?

I know you have to download Insomnia to always keep it on, whether you close the lid or not, but I thought that you could close the lid when it's connected to a display (new Toshiba 37" 1080p LCD), it doesn't go to sleep. Where is the setting for this so I can prevent this?

MacBook Pro :: Close Lid Without Turning Off Or Sleep?

Jul 31, 2010

I'm a Mac Pro guy and this is my first Mac laptop. How do I make it so nothing happens when I close the lid? Not using external display or anything. Sometimes it's just nice to be able to close the laptop when moving from place to place, I just don't see the need to sleep the machine when I do so. I do this on my Acer laptop all the time.
