MacBook Pro :: Log In Keyboard And Track Pad Delay

Sep 14, 2009

I am having a really strange problem with my MBP (Stats are in my Sig) running 10.6.1. Whenever I start or restart my computer, the keyboard and track pad click are unresponsive at the login/password screen. The computer recognizes them and eventually enters them but the delay is almost 2 minutes long! I have logged out without restarting and I do not have this issue. I have tired repairing permissions, and resetting PRAM. I am thinking about an Archive and Install.

Mac Pro :: SMC And PRAM Reset - Keyboard And Mouse Delay?

Feb 25, 2008

I tried the SMC & PRAM reset. Now, there is a delay in my keyboard and mouse. For example as I am writing this, as I type, I am observing a ~1/4 sec delay between me pressing a key and the GUI registering it. The same with the mouse. I can click-and-hold over say File and move it up and down over subsequent menu items and it the GUI doesn't highlight the menu item unless I slow down the movement.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard And Track-pad Input Acting Different?

Mar 6, 2012

I have a really annoying problem with my macbook pro. Often (maybe 40-50% of the times) when i click some text field (on a webpage in Chrome or Safari, or in Finder's search field - actually any text field on my mac) and start to write something, nothing happens. Then if i use my trackpad and CLICK on the text field, all of the letters which i wrote, suddenly appears. The same thing happens with scrolling (in Apple's Preview app, browsers, finder etc.). Sometimes when i try to scroll, nothing happens. If i then click anywhere inside the window, it scrolls. Same thing happens with gestures if i use Preview to view a pdf in fullscreen. If i use 3 fingers swipe to browse to another page, nothing happens. If i click anywhere it immediately go to the other page. Is this software or hardware related? I'm thinking software, unless it has something to do with my trackpad. It's a 13" Macbook Pro (2.3 i5)

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard And Track-pad Disabled After Installing A USB Driver From The Apple Website?

May 13, 2012

While trying to fix my disabled USB ports on my MBP, (Installing some sort of USB driver that wasn't made for my specific OS, which is 10.7.4, which came from the apple website.) I rebooted my computer and I notice that once the loggin screen shows up the cursor won't budge. Then I try hitting Enter on my mac and the arrow keys a little. Nothing. Then I try using every key on the keyboard. Absolutely nothing. Tried resetting the PRAM, SMC, AND tried using Safe Boot. Nothing. At this point I wanted to smash my computer or smash something technology related. The only thing that works on my computer now is the little slim of hope that I call Windows 7 which I am posting this from.Is there ANYTHING I can do to enable my Trackpad and Keyboard again?

Mar 23, 2012

I have a problem since i upgraded to an Intel SSD for my early 2011 MBP. My MBP not always but often when i start Mac OS Lion, delays to start, i boot normal in OS Lion but everything is in slow motion. When that happens i reboot  my MBP and my problem solves only with a reboot.

Ex.1 : Normally my Mac will boot in a few seconds > Takes 5 times more.

Ex.2 : Every think i do lags (opening a program, a preview, a folder,ext.)

MacBook Pro :: Auto Graphics Switching - Delay?

Nov 4, 2010

Does anybody experience any delays with the auto graphics switching on the late 2010 MBPs? I mean serious delays? Mine seems to be very slow at making the switch. Say if I open a PDF that has a load of images in and start to scroll at high speed to scan the document, everything becomes very stuttery. Then, after a while (very random in how long it takes) everything starts to get smoother, when I assume the NVIDIA kicks in. I thought this was meant to be more-or-less instantaneous?

MacBook Pro :: When Pressing Start Button There Is A Delay

Dec 1, 2014

When I press the start button there is a delay of 3-4 seconds before the computer turns on and the sign in screen appears. Then when I shutdown it takes up to 4 minutes to actually turn off the screen.

I also ran a diagnostic check and received the error code HDD/11/4000000:SATA (0,0)... What I do next?

MacBook Pro :: Shorten Trackpad Delay In Dragging Movement?

May 14, 2010

This is on the new 2010 MBPs. This may also be the behavior with prior MBPs as well though. When I drag something, window or icon, and release my finger from the trackpad to set it in place, if my finger promptly touches down on the trackpad again so I can proceed with other tasks, the dragged object actually remains in focus and continues being dragged. I found that I have to artificially force myself to wait roughly a full second before I could resume contact with the trackpad without continuing the object-drag. Is there any way to configure this differently, either within OSX or with a freeware program?

MacBook Pro :: 13" 2010 System Sound Delay?

Jul 20, 2010

Ive been using Mac for almost a month now from purchasing my first Mac on my birthday. Ive got to say its an entire new experience and i love it something that is surely credited in my IT course i am currently studying as a student.Now i love the Mac Pro however being a perfectionist i do have a couple of issues.

One of them being with the system sounds when you receive an email or your battery is dying or your dragging something off the dock and you receive the puff sound.Now something i seem to be experiencing is quite a delay between these actions or sounds or at times no sound at all. Im guessing this is a software issue as i cant see any reasonable hardware explanation.

My second issue is the battery over just a months of use (taking care of battery letting it have normal cycles) it seems to have dropped form an estimated usage of about 5 hours to 3 fully charged basically pretty much idle other than safari open on a basic webpage.The next and final issue is the click when moving the mac i believe its the SMS motion thing, ive heard its possible to turn this off but how?

Last but not least :P im thinking of upgrading the hardrive at some point either to a faster 7200rmp or a Solid state, what would you recommend specifically for the mac? rather than in general also would this void my warranty or would apple do it based on my extended Apple Care package?

OS X :: How To Delay Mail From Being Sent ?

Jan 28, 2009

how I can delay mail being sent. I am a recent convert from Outlook.... Outlook as the ability to put the mail in the outbox and then I tell it when I want to Send & Receive.

I find this very useful. How do I get my mac to do this? I have searched the preferences but found nothing. It seems like such a simple request...

Some other questions re: mail.

On the top line in mail where the headings are: From, Subject, Date Received. How do I add Size to the list or any other heading- Are there others?

Also What is the 'Speech Bubble' icon signify on that some line?

How do I click on a mail message in mail to delete it Without it opening the message. Or opening the one underneath it.

Software :: How To Know About Internet Access Delay?

Aug 31, 2008

I have a real problem accessing the internet from my iMac. I have tried Safari, Opera & Firefox (all current versions) and there is always a 30 second delay before the internet page is displayed. I also have a MacBook accessing the same internet connection via AE and it does not suffer any delay!

I have cleaned the system with Onyx, removed unwanted languages with Multilingual and also removed unwanted printer drivers. Everything else appears to be functioning normally - iPhoto boots up when I connect a camera; iTunes loads when I connect an iPhone; and the printer works.

It has only happened in the last 48hrs, and I have not downloaded any new applications, movies etc, or access Limewire - or similar.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Delay In Connecting To Internet?

Mar 7, 2012

I installed SMC Firmware Update 1.5, EFI Firmware Update 2.7 and Airport Utility 6.0. After installing these updates my internet connection got delayed. Wi-Fi connection seem to be fine, but it takes about half minute before my browsers get through to the net. I have tried several browsers and different networks (at home and at work) and same issue every time a new connection is made or old one is re-estabilished.  

Have you any idea how to fix the problem, or should I uninstall the updates. And if so, how is it done?

Intel Mac :: Noticeable Delay In Waking Up?

Jun 10, 2012

Just recently my iMac has started experiencing a noticeable delay in waking up from sleep. It is set to have a password to allow access and normally, a nudge of the mouse and up pops the password entry panel.  Now the screen stays black for 10-15 seconds which in the grand scheme of things is neither here nor there but still annoying.  Nothing changed to the best of my knowledge in the system.  Probably a corrupt preference file maybe but if so, which one?

IMac :: 3-5 Second Response Delay Of Mouse Or Cursor?

Oct 18, 2008

This Imac 7.1 2ghz, 20" is less than a year old. I switched because it promised friendlier functioning especially for my wife. I use Parallels for XP/Quicken only. What drives me crazy is a 2-5 second delay for almost anything I do: scroll, copy, move cursor, any art or photo ops and TYPing. I read all the things to reduce the Pinwheel and did them. Finally I added 2 more Gigs of memory (total 4) and it made no difference. Activity monitor shows tons of free memory.

I cannot believe that I use my tiny Asus to type most of my stuff now because on the iMac I can type something then in the middle of a word, count 'one thousand 1-3 then sometimes get a pinwheel for 2 counts and it resumes typing. It does not seem to matter much if I close everything else (wow that eliminates all that handy windows stuff Apple is famous for).

OS X :: Photoshop Elements 4.0 (Animation Delay And Loop)

Nov 3, 2008

Everything seems ok until I wanted to animate a picture. I guess this version doesn't come with ImageReady because I don't have it. But I have found a way around that. The problem is when I say "Save for Web" and it comes up with all the options. I keep it transparent and click the animation box. The animation options are now available for use. But I can't change the delay per frame or whether I want it to loop or not. When I click on these options nothing happens.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Ichat Videochat Delay?

Sep 11, 2009

Has anyone been experiencing a delay or lag time with videochatting in Snow Leopard? It never manifests itself at first, but after about 4-5 minutes of videochatting, all communication begins to run on about a 3-5 second delay. Essentially, videochat seems broken to me with this problem.

Additionally, whenever I invite people to chat, I am unable to hear the other side and have to attempt to connect multiple times before audio works both ways.

10.6.1 dropped yesterday, but these problems continue to manifest themselves in every videochat that I am having. I tried lowering my bandwidth limit in the "Audio/Video" preference pane for ichat, but it didn't rectify either issue.
