Software :: Shift Key Not Working Fine / Minimizing Windows When Pressed

Sep 26, 2009

I don't know what I've done, but whenever I hit the shift key on my keyboard, all my open windows minimize. Hence I have to use caps lock to type any letters in caps, and can't use the shift key for things like exclamation marks and question marks.

MacBook Air :: Some Of Keys Not Working When Pressed

May 14, 2012

I have a Macbook Air and I just recently realized that some of my keys do not work or they will work when I press the letter or number next to the key that I need. I do not know what is wrong or why this is doing this since I got the computer on March 26, 2012.

MacBook :: Power Button Always Pressed?

Jun 29, 2014

my power button is constantly pressed. While I was using my computer, the screen got black automatically after a few seconds.After I pressed ESC in order to get back to my desktop, after another few seconds, the window asking if I want to shut down / log out / reboot appeared...When I'm trying to boot my Macbook, after a few seconds, it automatically shut down, without warning, as if I was pressing power button for a few seconds to force the shutdown.I can boot if I remain a keyboard's touch pressed during all the booting process, like Maj, or Alt, but as you could imagine, it's not really easy to use a computer with a keyboard's touch constantly pressed.... 

By the way, I won't go to the Genius bar for a few reasons, first, this Mac is 5 years old, so I'd prefer buy a new laptop instead of paying a few hundred bucks in order to change pieces of this old Macbook, secondly, I don't have an Apple Store near my location.

MacBook :: Option Key Seems To Be Stuck, But It Is Not Physically Pressed?

Jun 13, 2012

When typing, all that is coming out are the symbols that appear when pressing Option, as opposed to the letter pressed. It acts as if the option key is pressed down, but neither option key seems to be stuck.

MacBook Pro :: Clicking Noise Heard When Right Corner Pressed

Apr 13, 2010

Basically, I have noticed that sometimes if I put pressure (not really hard or anything just like if I lean my wrist on it when typing) on the bottom right corner of the macbook, it makes a clicking sound when I press it. It sounds to me like something is bending when I press down there. It doesn't always click consistently, and sometimes I have to press in different places to get it to click.

I only noticed it when I applied a gelaskin to the top and was rubbing it to get the bubbles out and noticed when I rubbed over that corner it would make a clicking sound. Its really weird and I don't want my macbook to die as I'm already on my second one this year! I have backed up the hard drive as I have been told that the hard drive is in that corner but I have no idea if thats the problem or not. It seems to be that something is loose but I don't know what or how!!

MacBook :: Cursor Keeps Acting As If Mouse Or Keypad Being Pressed

May 1, 2012

I have a 3 gig macbook using 10.5.8. It acts as if the mouse or keypad is pressed - intermittently. I notice it both using the mouse and when typing. I disconnected the mouse but it still does it. Typing anything is very hard, web browsing not easy. Files, words, pages, etc. get dragged around. It does it for a while, then stops, but starts misbehaving again. Restarted the machine, but it comes back.

MacBook Air :: Way To Get Power Button To Only Shut Off After Being Pressed For 3 Seconds Or More?

Jun 5, 2014

We're not used to having the computer's power button on the keyboard. Occasionally, when trying to hit Delete, one of us turns off the computer power. I'm wondering if there is a setting (I really don't know my way around macs or I'd check myself) that can trigger the shutdown only after the power button has been held 3 seconds or more. This would prevent those accidental shutdowns.

Software :: Logic Update 9.1.2 Released - Do Not Upgrade

Oct 14, 2010

New update for Logic released today, unfortunately it strips out hyperthreading support that previously worked on quad mac pro and iMac i7 machines, causing a major drop in performance from the previous version. I would wait on upgrading until they have a 9.1.3 that fixes this major issue, or at the very least back up 9.1.1 before doing the upgrade.

Software :: Photoshop Lightroom 2 Released As Adobe's First 64-bit Mac App

Jul 29, 2008

Following an earlier open beta, Adobe on Tuesday released version 2.0 of its Photoshop Lightroom post production photography software, which stands as the company's first application to run 64-bit-native on Apple's Mac OS X Leopard operating system.

The San Jose-based software developer is particularly proud of the accomplishment given that Lightroom's main competitor, Apple's Aperture, has yet to see native 64-bit support.

Adobe has committed to delivering 64-bit versions of Photoshop and its other Creative Suite applications, but said earlier this year that those updates will take considerably longer due to Apple's decision to scrap plans for a 64-bit version of its Carbon developer tool set.

For Lightroom 2.0, 64-bit support will allow the application to address large amounts of memory in excess of 4 gigabytes, which will speed up overall performance for photographers dealing with large scale images that must be swapped into and out of memory during processing-intensive operations.

The software also aims to streamline and accelerate photographers� workflows through an enhanced Library module featuring the ability to visually organize images across multiple hard drives. A Library Filter Bar and Suggested Keywords feature work towards simplifying the search and retrieval process.

Two other highly touted features of Lightroom 2.0 are dual-monitor support for maximizing workspace and more efficient printing tools. For instance, the software now arranges photos of multiple sizes on one or many pages with customizable templates to maximize paper and ink. Intelligent algorithms then automatically determine optimal sharpening for screen or print, producing crisper images faster.

Adobe is also rolling out new RAW technology that gives photographers access to flexible camera profiles that will help reduce unexpected changes in the quality of their photographs.

"Camera profiles are the visual starting point for the raw processing workflow, but image preferences vary for every photographer," the company siad. "To minimize surprises, Adobe is supplying default camera profiles that closely emulate the visual looks that photographers are used to seeing from their favorite camera, while also providing the ability to create highly customized profiles to suit different tastes."

Camera profiles are available for immediate download on Adobe Labs for use with Lightroom 2 and Camera RAW 4.5, along with a DNG Profile Editor for the community to test and create their own profiles. The tools currently support over 190 camera models including the Olympus E 420 and E 520 models.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 is available for immediate download (or shipping) through the Adobe Store in English, French and German with the Japanese language version planned to be released at a future date. New licenses cost $299 and upgrades fetch $99.[ View this article at ]

IMac :: Stuck Pixel Already On New Released Model

Mar 6, 2009

I got my new 24 iMac today. It's the new released model. After working with it some time now today i found a stuck pixel on the screen. I think it is stuck because it is bright red and not black. Is there anyway to fix this? I have tried jScreenFix without any luck. Is there anything apple will do with this? Spending this amount of money on a new computer it should not come with a stuck pixel...

Hardware :: MiniDisplayport To HDMI And DVI - Monoprice Released

Dec 1, 2009

Just got the email from MonoPrice that their MiniDP -> DVI and MiniDP -> HDMI cables are available (still no mdp->VGA). I was going to get one, but I am getting a monitor with full size Display port so I just got their MiniDP->DP cable instead. Thought this might interest anyone needing direct to DVI or HDMI. If I decide to get one I'll post up with details. seems interesting that they don't have a picture yet, but it is only $15 so I imagine it isnt something with a big bulky adapter. to DVI: [URL]

MacBook Shift Key Stuck?

Mar 20, 2012

for Christmas I got my moms old macbook. It was some things that were wrong with it but she took it to get fixed at apple for like 500$ so Im sure she doesn't have warranty. The other day I was typing a report and it kept typing in capitals when I didn't have the caps lock on...I figured out that it was something with the shift key. I took it off, and that still didnt work. I haven't spilled anything on it at all. I take very good care of it also. Now I can't en log in because my password has numbers which only turn into symbols.

MacBook :: Right Shift Key Does Not Work

Apr 1, 2012

I purchased a late 2009 13" Macbook with 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB ram as a present for my son in college.  He had problems last year and the top case and motherboard were replaced in early 2011; Recently his battery would not hold a charge and his hard drive failed.  I replaced both and added more ram to speed it up -  now at 8 GB)The right shift key does not work.  I have checked universal access; speech-to-text features are off; checked keyboard - English is chosen; checked keyboard, shift key is not assigned to any function;Left shift key does work.  Right shift key does work on an attached Logitech wireless keyboard.  The key seems to press down okay, just will not capitalize any letters.
