I think my 2010 15" i7 MacBook Pro is overheating. Today when I was in bootcamp playing the sims 3 my MacBook suddenly went to sleep. I checked the MacBook and it was super hot. The MacBook was in clamshell mode with a monitor keyboard & Mouse.
I got a brand new Macbook Air the other week.†I noticed that sometimes, after folding the computer (with the OS running), then unfolding it - the keyboard and trackpad are not responding at the login screen. Actually if I press the keyboard it lights up properly but there is no access to the system. The only thing that works is the power button, so every time I have to power down the computer, then back on again.
I have an airport express that is configured properly but for some reason iTunes cannot find it after it wakes up in the morning. To fix it I have to restart the computer. My computer is connected to a time capsule via an ethernet cable and the airport express extends the same network wirelessly. My computer goes to sleep everynight at 1 am and wake up at 7am. I like my coffee and bbc every morning and am tired of having to go downstairs to the restart my computer to get the airplay working again. This started happening about four or five months ago.
Info:Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3), 3,1 2.8 GHz 1Gb Radeon HD 4870
I have two different iMacs: late 2011 and Mid 2010. Both imacs wifi stop working after sleep mode. ***?! Ipod and iphones work properly at is time. I have checked disk utils and fixed permissions. Everything is updated. Maybe there is the way to reenable wifi module without rebooting my computers?
Im very dissapointed apple imacs. Lcd of mid 2010 being changing for the second time. Last time it worked ok for 5 month. ***?! Is it ok for lcd screen? Or maybe I should turn into hackintosh to avoid poor-quality hardware? Rofl. **** I have only apple devices and starting nervous about it.
I'm having a problem with my PowerBook G4 where is goes into sleep mode at random times. Mostly when I am streaming video..or at times the fan comes on, it sounds super high then boom. sleep mode again. After hitting the space bar, it comes back on, but it'll happen again shortly after. I've played with the sleep settings
As of last night, my MBP started acting very strangely. After entering my username and password, it would enter the desktop for a short period of time and then kick back into sleep mode; the screen would turn back to black. Sometimes it will let me stay on the desktop for a long time and other times it will hardly let me stay on the desktop. I called apple support and they had me start the computer in safe mode; even then it occasionally kicks me out.
The tech guy said that it was a "strange software issue" and not a hardware issue. I thought it was a hard drive issue; my hard drive makes an odd sound when it unlocks (a grinding sound), but it has been doing that for quite some time with no issues. I tried to reset the SMC and it didn't do anything.
How should I remedy this problem? Is this a hard drive issue? Hard drive failure? Has the grinding sound finally caught up with me? I am running OS X; not leopard or snow leopard. I know I need to upgrade, but this shouldn't be happening.
I am having this weird problem. Suddenly my Trackpad refuses to accept all left clicks, also including the lower left real click. I can't do anything except booting into safe mode, then back to normal mode.
I am running Mac Mini as a home server (turns out to be not a great idea, btw), and even though I set the preference to never sleep or shut down, it does go to sleep when there is no activity for long time. Since I am using it as home server, it should stay awake all the time or at least wake up from sleep when there is incoming ping from other computer, but it just goes to sleep.
I sometimes forgotten to unplug the device before closing the lid. Such as when I'm in a hurry and close the lid of the MBP, only then realize that my iPhone is still attached.
I don't want to put unnecessary stress on the harddrive by it going to sleep, waking up, then sleep again just because that unplugging an USB device woke it up. I notice that this does not happend on my Windows laptop.
Whenever I close the lid to my MacBook it'll go to sleep by turning off the harddisk and the light is blinking. But when I go to pick it up or even move it the Superdrive makes a noise as if its searching for a disk and the apple on the lid/monitor blinks on and off. Basically the computer never really stays in sleep mode.
This is the second time this has happened. I shut my macbook expecting it to go to sleep. I then put it in its booq sleeve and put it in my back pack. About 40 minutes late I pull it out of the case and it is WAY hot and the fan is going like crazy. I open it up and I cant do anything, I think because it is over heated. What is the deal?
I was using my Macbook Pro, finished, put it to sleep and left for a few hours. When I came back it was off. I try to turn it on and the power light comes on and I can hear the disk for about 3 second and then it just shuts off again. I searched the apple support site for this problem and I've done these things. [URL]. I play computer games on it and often the battery would drain. I would plug it in when the 10 minute warning came up, and the little light on the MagSafe plug would turn from green to amber. Lately it had been turning back to green even though the battery icon on the screen said the battery wasn't charged, sometimes the computer would even shut down even though it was plugged in (again, it was plugged in and the light was green, even though the battery icon said it wasn't charged). Maybe it's related to my computer not turning on?
I have an older style MBP, 2.2, running 10.4.3, and the other day after using it about an hour I put it to sleep. After another hour or so I opened it to use it again. Usually just opening it will wake it from sleep. It didnt so I tried pressing any buttons, no luck. Held the power button til it turned off. Tried to boot up but the screen stayed black and the sleep light went on, but did not pulsate. Tried that a few times with the same result. I also tried hooking up an external monitor, just got "no signal".
To resolve the Macbook Pro 2010 (13") not being able to sleep when the lid is open. I even dl-ed this one app called "Please Sleep" that claimed to solve the issue to no avail. My energy saver power settings have me un-check marking the box that says "turn off hard disks when possible". I have my screen saver kicking in 5 minutes, display sleep going at the 10th minute, and then finally the computer sleep itself at 20 minutes. These are under the "plugged" in condition.
Often times I will leave my lid open, go off and do whatever. Come back to find the screen turned off, and no blinking sleep light. Instead I'll press some keys and find myself on the purple background/initial USER log in screen. Upon logging in all my initial boxes, windows, apps are closed and I am forced to re-open all of them all over. Is it correct to assume that this is a widely recognized issue with the Uni-MBP?
New mac user, just bought a new MBA -- when should I just close the lid vs shutting it down completely?¬† i.e. is there a general guideline where if you're not going to use it for at least, say, an hour, then shut down but if you are then close the lid, etc.¬† Also let's assume we are talking about the MBA not being plugged in for this scenario but operating off battery.¬†
i have an apple laptop bought november 2010, and all of a sudden the charger isn't working, i have the apple care , i live in Egypt and when i bought the apple care the guy who sold it to me at apple store told me it covers you worldwide, i asked him r u sure it will cover me in egypt he said yes, but i called "tradeline" they r the one s who sell apple laptops and all apple products in egypt and they told me no they cant help me.¬†now i need a new charger to my laptop please, i have a friend visiting the US and you can send a new charger to her.¬†waiting for your reply and if you r not the person to contact for repair and services
Coming from Windows sometimes I hibernate the laptop but I have heard alot of people say with Mac's that they just put them to sleep. Firstly do you just do this for short periods as such as overnight? Also can your carry them around whilst on sleep or should they be shut down.
I'm going to purchase a macbook pro at some point, probably when the new announcement happens, but my question is: while the laptop is in sleep mode, does the battery turn off? Like, does it still consume energy while in sleep mode?
Probably a dumb question, but I know nothing about laptops.Never had a laptop before (currently using a imac g5 from 2006).
I'm using my Mac on an external monitor with a USB keyboard/mouse and the lid closed. When I put it to sleep using the remote, it switches off but then re-awakens about 5 seconds later. It's really annoying as it's usually when I'm in bed after watching a video and am too tired to get up and switch it off manually. How to make it sleep? Could it be the USB peripherals making it act this way? If so, how can I stop my Mac from waking on USB?
Every time I try to "discover" my new MBP with the Apple bluetooth keyboard, to wake the laptop up from sleep, it fails and I have to go through the process of setting up a bluetooth device. However the pairing takes forever, sometimes doesn't work at all, and I have to type in a new pairing code each time. The whole process takes between 3 and 20 minutes, depending on how quickly the MBP can find the keyboard. I have the same problem with both Apple wireless keyboards at work and home, so it's not the keyboard.
Every time my macbook is in sleep mode the internet disconnects (msn messenger shuts down, download stops etc.). I am not talking about closing the lid sleep mode because I am in desktop mode with an external display. Once I woke up my macbook it reconnects. Does anyone know how to stop this because I think it happened after 10.5.6.
I have a trouble with deep sleep (hibernation) mode. MacBook MB403, OS X Leopard 10.5.6. When I put my mac to deep sleep mode, and then wake it up, I have a two problems: Bluetooth is not available until I reboot it and more serious problem: if I try to put mac in deep sleep mode again, screen becomes dark, but white indicator shines constantly and no more actions, I can only press power button for 3 seconds, then it power down and so mac shuts down. I tried to use Deep Sleep widget and also I tried "sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 3" in the Terminal.
Suddenly my new macbook aluminium have started to wake up from sleep mode when the lid is down. It goes into sleep, and then it wakes up again and back to sleep and wakes up again. I have tried to restart SMC, and i have unchecked bluetooths ability to wake up the computer and the ethernets ability to do so.
My MacBook light no longer pulses gently when the computer goes into sleep mode after the cover is closed. This doesn't seem to be affecting battery life, so it is clearly going into sleep mode as always. It's not a huge problem, but I was wondering if anyone else has seen it.
I just got this Refurb MacBook Pro 15in. 2.66Ghz 32GB HDD and 512MB NVIDIA GFX. And my computer went into sleep mode and when I plugged it back in I had to do a manual reboot because the mouse wouldn't move.. So, I turned it back on let it die to see if it would happen again, and then the computer didn't even go to sleep mode.. What is going on? What should I do?
My MacBook does not sleep immediately, I have already tried removing safe sleep and it gives me no effect. It is not a hardware problem as my Windows Vista on the Machine sleeps just how I would like it. For info, the Hard Drive that is in it (320GB WD Scorpio Black) was used in an EFI Hackintosh install for my MSI Wind (but EFI installs do not modify the main operating system so I do not know what the heck is causing this)? By the way, the MacBook is custom, made by me. I built it out of three dead MacBooks.
One Black Core duo which was stepped on and had a broken screen and hinges which gave me: Only working Logic board of the Pack (2.0GHZ Core Duo) I paid 140$ for this one 2 512MB sticks (Removed one and added a 1GB Stick, yes I know matched pairs, gonna find another 1GB soon) Bottom case. Top lid Half the keys for the keyboard.
The Second MacBook Free: 2.0GHZ Core Duo white gave me with coffee spilled on it Top case with trackpad, and half of the keys Bezel Hinges Screen other screws etc. Fan (The one inside was going clack clack clack)
One 2.2GHZ Core 2 Duo which a dog peed on, Free for getting data off of: DVD-R Drive one that was in it wouldn't eject Sleep Light, the one that was there originally was borked and did not light, and IR did not work. Now it does alternative screen with no pressure marks like the one I have now but one noticeable 1/2 inch scratch. Various screws.
I am yet to finish it. I am still prototyping the new top screen assembly using the Black lid, a red apple, and the screen with a scratch on it, and the bezel from the 2.2GHZ which is really beat up. The current top assembly is straight from the 2.0GHZ White. Here's a pic of it in it's current state.
