MacBook Pro :: Hypermac Actual Usage Times?

Jan 18, 2010

If you have a Hypermac battery in any capacity what are the actual usage times you get with it then? I'd rather not pay extra for time I don't need but I don't want to buy too little either.

My machine is 2.26 MBP 13" with 8 GB ram and x-25m 160gb so I'm guessing I might get a little more out of the internal battery. Hypermac tells me that the 100w is their most popular model.

Software :: Hard Drive Space - Discrepancy In Actual Usage

Oct 15, 2008

My MacBook Pro recently shows I am using about 130 GB of its 233 GB hard drive capacity. When I add the GB's of all its constituent folders, I only see 75 GB being used. What has happened, and how can I resolve this. I've run Disk Utility, and the disk and permissions check out fine. (On my G5, everything adds up, and I've just noticed this discrepancy in the last week.)

MacBook Air :: Virtual RAM Using A SSD Almost As Fast As Actual RAM?

Oct 31, 2010

The most demanding thing I would do with a new Air is watch videos, while having 5 windows open, while also running Office. Would 2GB be enough? And if it isn't just wondering when the MBA accesses more RAM virtually using the SSD how slow would it be? Half the speed of actual real RAM? A quarter? Or maybe it would be almost as fast as real RAM??

MacBook Pro :: How Much Actual Free Space In SSD

Jun 8, 2010

I'm about to order a Macbook Pro and I'm undecided between a regular 500gb 7200rpm HHD or the 128 SSD. I've heard the SSD is fast but I'm afraid it might not be enough space. Typically, hard drives actually have a little less free space than the number it indicates. For example, a 500gb might have about 460gb of free space.

MacBook Air :: IFixit Videos - Replacing Actual LED Display

Jul 28, 2008

I need to know exactly how to remove the display portion of a macbook air, and how to go about replacing the actual LED display. The pictures, unfortunately, do not suffice. A video would be ideal, otherwise I may be going into my repair project quite blindly and unprepared. If there is no such video available.

MacBook :: Laptop Sending DAT Attachments Instead Of Actual File

May 29, 2012

I am a total Mac dummy but our owners daughter came in with her Macbook and said that no one can receive her attachments because they always get changed to DAT files. This happens if she uses both GMAIL and YAHOO mail (via safari). I can easily rename the file back to DOC or DOCX on my end but most of her friends and co-workers will not want to do that.

MacBook Pro :: Program / Widget To Track Actual Battery Run Time?

Mar 24, 2008

Exactly as the title says - is there a program out there that can track how long my MBP is running when i run it off of battery power? As we all know the power usage varies depending on what you're doing on the computer, and I don't tend to do any one thing for hours on end. I know on my windows PC i used some program that charted on a graph power usage over time until the battery died.

MacBook Pro :: Audio POP Before Hearing Actual Sound / System Sounds Not Working Fine

Mar 31, 2009

Here is whats happening: my 3 y.o. 15 MBP is connected to external speakers (Bose MusicMonitor) and every time there is a sound, any system sound, say an email in, a volume chirp, or a Skype chirp, anything at all, I hear an audible POP, before hearing the actual sound, in fact the POP sort of overlays the sound. I hear the second POP sometimes, after the sound has sounded, so to speak, and sometimes the second one does not happen at all. To me it reminds me of the Pioneer Amp my dad used to have in the 70's, when you first turn that thing on, it would produce an audible POP. So, back to to this, it sounds like an amplifier POP by being awaken by the system, and I'm inclined to think it is the MBP's audio "amplifier" on its board. Oh, btw, both the speakers and the MBP's volume is set to low.

MacBook Pro :: 40% CPU Usage?

Sep 17, 2009

I have an iStat Menubar and it's constantly showing me 40% CPU usage. It also shows the same number in Activity Monitor. However, when I look at the processes running, they don't add up to 40. In fact, they only amount to around 6% or so. I did click "All Processes", but nothing was running that would cause it to be 40%.

Mac Pro :: Actual Hard Drive Space Out Of Box

Apr 11, 2006

When you bought your MBP how much space did you have available out of the box. My 80 gig hardrive has a capacity of 74.21 and I never checked how much was used when I bought it. Reason I am asking is, I have 42.4 gigs left and I cant figure out where all that space went. I can account for 9 gigs worth of itunes music and videos, and maybe another 4 or so gigs of other stuff. What about the rest? How do I check if I have a HUGE plist file or something?

OS X :: How To Get Function Buttons Actual Options

Jul 3, 2009

Sometimes (very rarely, but it does occur) I need to press the F1 button or F8 or another "f" button. However, as we all know, apple has placed really nice (I really like them) shortcuts for widgets, expose, volume, play/pause etc. So when I press that button (say F8) the music starts playing. So how do I "press it right". Do I need to press another button with it. Or is it preferences.

How do I get photos to open in Preview in their Actual Size? I have checked the Preferences to open photos in Actual Size but it still zooms out leaving me to have to zoom in. I have also checked off 'Respect image and screen DPI for scale.'

Also during slideshows, how can I get the photos to be viewed in actual size? Is there a better app out there designed at what I'm getting at here?

App Store :: Using Not Actual Versions Of Software

Apr 30, 2012

I am trying to understand the concept of the app store. Generally I am not very fond of purchasing apps this way. Not having much experience yet. My biggest concern: 

What if I need an older version of an app. I always only see the actual version in the store. 

For example: I will certainly stay on Snow Leopard for a long time. More and more apps require at least Lion. Once, lets say in 5 years, when I may need to make a new install of all my things (still 10.6.8 tough) how can I be sure to be able to still get the software I always used, in a version that works in 10.6.8? 

I always have copies of apps I use. But in 5 years, will I be able to load it onto a new installed 10.6.8 Mac and run it? Would it only run after App Store confirmed I have actually bought it? Will it confirm a software 5 years old or force me to download y new version?

MacBook :: Idles Hot Even With No CPU Usage / Why Is This?

May 10, 2009

I've been trying and trying to get my 2007 Macbook C2D to run cooler. It idles at about 60-65 C even with no CPU usage (verified through Activity Monitor etc) and it used to get up to 95+ when playing any sort of video (Youtube etc) which would cause playback stuttering and other problems after 15-20 minutes.

I've tried a number of techniques to drop the temperature, most recently undervolting with Coolbook. Interesting, these have been relatively successful at lowering the *peak* temperature-- videos now only bump the CPU temp up to 70 C or so-- but it still idles at the exact same temperature it did before, around 60.

Does anyone have any theories why the idle temperature would remain high even after I've reduced the peak temperature, and even when CPU usage is hovering between 2 and 5 percent?

MacBook Pro :: How Much CPU Usage Should Expect

Feb 1, 2012

I have a two week old MBP and I find that my battery performance is dismal.I'm only getting 2 hours per charge, and this is after Apple replaced my battery two days ago!I think it might be related to my CPU usage..Looking at Activity Monitor, my "% User" CPU usage is routinely above 26%, with only Safari running (no videos). Even with no programs open I run over 25%.

My MacbookPro is running way too hard and makes me think it's going to die any second,I just purchased it new from the apple store back in September the CPU my Java takes up is amazing. I've seen the number jump to 102+ which makes me wonder why my computer freaks out when I use java.  I've included a picture of the CPU usage.

MacBook Air :: Fan Loud At Low CPU Usage

Jun 1, 2014

I have a MacBook Air Late 2010, and the fan over heats at around 30% CPU usage, I installed AppTamer to keep it down, but it is quite annoying to keep using it. Sometimes the fan will go at 18% when one application uses about 15%, but not 100% percent when its lots of other ones. App that generaly cause the fan to overheat are, obviously, high CPU ones, like Pixelmator, Photoshop,  Xcode, but some times even low CPU usage, like YouTube or Video Content on Google Chrome, Safari and Google Chrome in general. Microsoft Office 2011, Pages, Numbers & Keynote. Even apps like Preview (viewing more than 5 photos ) can use alot of CPU. So what should I do? I have repairs under warranty till about September, but Apple charge £35.00 to chat online?!?! I have tried resetting the SMC which only works about half of the time. I read on the internet that it is a production issue or at least common Late 2010 MacBook Air's.

MacBook Air :: What Is Application Loading Times

May 23, 2009

i have spent roughly half my life (or it just feels like it) deciding between these three notebooks and i know all the advantages, disadvantages, problems, etc but i would love to know how the loading times for various applications vary between the three. Someone here said that the rev b takes about 25% longer to open an application than the macbook. How accurate is this? So basically if anyone can tell me how long any app takes to load on their macbook air or unibody it would be a gr8 help (i know i can live with all of the airs other disadvantages but this hasnt been talked about too much).

btw a ssd is not an option and obviously the macbook is gonna be faster than the air, im just wondering how much faster

MacBook Pro :: Freezing Up Randomly (20 Times Per Day)

Jul 11, 2009

I bought a MacBook Pro a few weeks ago about a week after they came out. It's the 13 inch 2.26GHz model. Over the past few weeks, I have noticed it freezing up randomly at times. I have heard that bluetooth keyboards and mouse devices may cause the problem, but I have disabled both and it still freezes up.

About 5 days ago, I ran TechTool Deluxe and it came up that the Video RAM failed, so I restarted, tested again and it didn't show the message again. I don't have that much programs open, probably Microsoft Word, Firefox, iTunes and Safari. I've also tried Disk Utility, nothing. It is getting very annoying and it happens just at random times and it happens about 20 times per day.

If I have to send this in for repair, I will be really disappointed. My first iMac had to be brought in for repair. My iPhone has been in for repair three times and I really am thinking Apple is just failing on me.

MacBook Pro :: Left Fan Goes Crazy A Many Times During The Day?

Apr 11, 2010

I've noticed (actually the past few months, but it never really annoyed me until recently), that my left fan will spin really fast and very loud a few times during the day at random moments. Sometimes I will leave my computer for a few minutes, and it won't be doing anything difficult (just finder, or something not cpu intensive), and it will be blowing like crazy when I come back. These "episodes" last for a few minutes and then return to normal. Activity monitor shows that my cpu is barely being used, so nothing is taxing the system. Weirdly enough, when this happens, istat says the fan is at 0 RPM, yet it is very loud. I cleaned out my fans with a little keyboard vacuum to make sure there was not dust stuck in their, but it still makes those fan noises occasionally. I even did the Apple hardware test, and nothing showed up. I have a late 08 MBP.
