MacBook Pro :: Used Migration Assistant, Cannot Login With Old Password

May 10, 2012

Trying to resurrect my old MacBook Pro. Installed a fresh Snow Leopard system on it, then used Migration Assistant to get my stuff off my iMac (running Lion that I purchased from AppStore). First time, migrated from a Time Machine backup. Then, erased and installed again and migrated via Firewire directly from iMac. Problem is, both times, I get to the login/startup screen of the MacBook and it will not accept my password. Using the same password I used on the iMac. My user name and even the custom icon show up properly.

OS X :: Disable Startup Items For A One-time Login?

Jan 13, 2009

I'm sure many of you know how using bootcamp can cause slow startups when switching OS's because it has no cache to use. For example I'll be in Windows and then need to swap back over to Leopard to get something done, but it takes forever. The worst part is the list of login items... I've tried using scripts to separate them by 10 seconds or so, but nothing really made it faster. I was wondering if it was possible to login but cancel or disable the startup items for that login that one time... Sometimes I just need to login to grab something off the internet or something quick, but it takes me awhile because I have to wait for everything to load.

Do I make any sense? :P

And no, safe startup mode does not count. I don't want to disable the entire system... just the login items.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Disable Sleep Button At Login Screen?

May 1, 2012

Is there a way to disable or hide the sleep button at the login screen? I am trying to send updates and/or commands from ARD.... But the end users are putting the computers to sleep by pressing the sleep button. This is causing the ARD updates/commands to fail. The computers and severs are all Lion OSX. If I can disable the sleep button at login then I can send the updates/commands. I normally only do the updates/commands when there is no user logged in.So I am not concerned with the case where the user is already logged in and puts the computer to sleep. I have already setup an MCX in WGM for the Energy Saver.

MacBook :: 2008 Aluminum Will Not Accept Correct Password At Login

May 7, 2012

My macbook ran out of battery two days ago. When I restarted it had all my data and files, but the settings had been reset (i.e. my screen saver, dock, expose, etc had all been reset to the original settings). A day later, the macbook froze and I tried to restart it. It now goes to the login page with my user ID but does not accept my correct password. Instead, the rainbow pinwheel spins for a few minutes before the login window shakes and then clears my entered password, as if it does not accept the password. After a few repeated tries, it offered me my password hint. I know my password is the same one I've always used.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.5), late 2008 aluminum model

OS X :: Disable Screensaver Password - Using Administrator Account

Jan 6, 2010

I am a network administrator and an mac user. No one else is my IT dept knows anything about macs so I have been given the responsibility of managing our 5 or so Mac's in the company. I've been able to figure everything out fine, but I have one user that insists on turning on the screensaver password on his computer. Now on windows, you can unlock a computer using an administrator account but on mac this is not the case. I want to disable the option for the screensaver password but I do not know how. The user is a local administrator on the computer because that is needed for a few things but he is making it impossible for me to work on his computer because of the password. Also, I've tried telling him not to enable it but he seems to not care what I think.
