MacBook Pro :: Laggy When Switching Desktops (workspaces) Running OS X Mavericks 10.9.4
Sep 10, 2014
Just recently my macbook has began to lag when I swipe three fingers left or right to get to another desktop. I believe it happened after I used VMWare Fusion 5 but I do not believe that is the problem because I have used it before without any issues. I also tried reinstalling Mavericks OS X but that did nothing. The transition is just not a clean and pleasant transition from one desktop to the other.

im running my macbook through a server running osx 10.5.7. The server has dual ethernet cards, one to connect into the external network and one for my own little network, which just has my macbook on it.ive noticed a very long delay in loading pages on the macbook, it takes about 6 seconds before anything happens and then its good and fast. Happens on every page which isnt cached.
the internet connection is capable of 60Mbps each way so its not the cause of the delay.On the server the internet is 'snappy' and everything is near instant so i belive that the delay occurs in the networkThe transfer speeds between computers are fine and pinging the server from the macbook gets speeds of around 0.2 ms. so i guess the problem lies in how the server handles the internet passthrough
My G5 fan is running loud and hot a lot of the time. Very loud. My Power Mac G5 Quad is the last one made before Intel came along. I've downloaded Temperature Monitor software, but I can't fine out what normal temperature ranges are. If any one can help me find out more, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org

I recently installed the CS3 studio. Everything is working fine but Flash is taking way too long to get back to work if I switch between applications.
Assume I have a file open in flash, click back to the desktop and click back from there to flash, it takes about a minute (with the spinning wheel) for flash to "un-freeze" and lets me working on my file again. Basically every time I leave flash and come back to it, I have to wait for it to gather stuff and get back on track for about a minute. Who can work like that?
I have plenty of memory, latest OSx and not using unusually large files. Have an iMac.
I have been googeling this issue but couldn't find anything.
I do not have any of these problems with the other parts of CS3 (PS/AI/ID etc), only with flash!
PS: Is it possible it has to do with fonts (about 300 of them) that I had recently installed?
I'm worried about too much heat and wearing out fans in both the card and my Mac.Below are the conditions, but first:
-Is it normal for this kind of card to run ALL the time? How do I know if it's acting correctly? -Given the heat and fan speed info below, are my Mac and internal drives OK? -Am I risking any breakdowns? Due to heat or fans running too much... or? -Do all graphics cards cause the fans to run like this? Is there a cooler card out there? -Suggestions to lessen the heat effects... or for another alternative?
Condition: MacPro Xeon / Dual 2.66 processor / 4 GB RAM Radeon HD3870 Card in Bottom slot E-Sata card in top slot. No other cards installed 4 Terabyte Internal Drives

We've upgraded to Mavericks and Abobe CC in one time, so I'm not sure this is a Mavericks or an Indesign problem..Switching between 2 programs is very very slow now.f.ex copying text between Word and Indesign takes several seconds - if I copy too soon, I still have the previous text loaded.
Also opening several Indesign files, and switching between them is a problem: it takes time to preview correctly, text "dissapearing" for a few seconds, or only re-appearing when toggling between views..I work on a iMac mid 2011, 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 with 8 GB memory. how I can get the same spead back as before?
I was wondering if there is a keyboard short cut to swtich language input of the keyboard than manually clicking to swtich language. I'm an English user, but sometimes use Korean keyboard. i tried to look in keyboard --> shortcuts but don't see that option nor understand how you can manually set up that short cut like in windows.
My Mac book pro has turned very laggy.Here's the details:

The mac was working fine though we heard the fan was broken. It was making a loud noise but worked fine. It use to over-heat very bad. So we decided to get the fan replaced. After 2 days we got it back. Then we tryed playing on it a games. It was laggy. Even after a certain amount of windows it would lag. Then we erased all the junk, and games and tryed to have multiple windows opened. It was bad. The fan didn't make noise but over heated very hot I installed an app and found out it would get so warm to about 219 degrees. We tryed backing it up and then reinstall another mac backup. The same result happened. We tryed again and still no change happend. We tryed all those cleaning programs clean my mac,mackeeper,antivirus,and some others. We erased them off to in the end.

I have a neat scanner connected to my mac via USB. My wife and I both use the scanner and have separate accounts on the same machine. The issue is that the scanner gets "connected" to either one user or the other. Let's say the scanner is working fine for user A. User B can't use the scanner properly. It seems like first come first serve. When user B pushes the scan button on the device and user B is the active account on OSX. User A's account still gets the popup window responding to the scan request. I guess I am looking for a terminal command, or some procedure, so that user B can come in and gain access to the scanner without logging out user A.
Finder freezes every time when switching to another tab or folder, or renaming a folder. I really don't know why Here two logs from the console.

I also have another Problem: Every time, I restart my mac, the process "installed" goes wild and uses over 100% of the CPU. After a few minutes also my disk is full. It seems to write Gigs of data in private/var/vm.
I had a 2.4G MBP with 4G ram that I used for about a year. I bought an Intel 128GB SSD and used the optibay to install. I'm using the HD to store the home folder, and all applications and OSX on the SSD. The MBP started getting really laggy here lately, I see a pinwheel for about 60 seconds when I use "Save as" or try and print something. So I bought a 2.8G 17" MBP with 4G ram, hoping it was a hardware issue. I swapped both drives into the new MBP, but am having the same issues. I use a lot of different softwares (office '08, xcode, parallels, quickbooks, etc...) so its hard to pinpoint it down to a specific application. I am going to wipe the MBP clean and start over, but what is the best route? Should I just backup the home folder, reinstall all software then put back the home folder? I want to avoid copying the problem, but can't afford to lose all of my application data.
I just got a MacBook Pro two days ago. It's been working fine except for one small problem - the track-pad sometimes lags.The problem occurs mainly on the user logon page when you start up the page, and sometimes on Safari, etc. It doesn't occur too often to be a distraction. Should the lagginess be a concern, and does it happen on all MacBook Pros?
I have 2 monitors on my computers - 2 Mac Pros (2011) and an iMac. All are running 10.10.1. I have one monitor in each case that is the "home" monitor - with the dock and files on the desktop. All 3 of my computers keep switching the Dock to the other monitor. Once switched, the Dock stays on the other monitor until I use system preferences to change the arrangement. It started for me with OS 10.9

i have the computer in my sig. i am a graphic design student and will be using this for that. can my computer handle 1920x1200. will it be laggy at such resolutions? and does anyone have any experience with this monitor or suggestions for other good ones which are around 350.
I have one of the first MBP uni's with a removable battery. I recently upgraded to time warner wideband 50 down 5 up and i can dl and ul fast but the internet gets laggy some times tacking 30 + seconds to load pages they came and swapped the modem again today no fix its a ubee docsis 3.0 one. Its fine on all other networks. Tried open dns and some other work arounds but no luck, other pcs on my network are fine.
It seems that Outlook 2011 Reminders switch the active screen (when using multiple spaces in OSX which I always do) when they pop. This seems to happen whether I have the reminders set to appear on all desktops or just the first desktop. This is hugely annoying when I am in a fullscreen app (e.g. parallels) and suddenly I'm warped over to the first screen again. I'm talking about spaces functionality in OSX, not multiple monitors. This feature. OS X Mavericks: Work in multiple spaces
Is there any reason why I can't have my macs background change every 5 seconds without it affecting what I'm doing on the screen at the time? It makes the computer slow while it's happening I really wanted to be able to have it rotate but not if it's going to choke the computer up. The mac is the current 2.4ghz 4gb model
If you go to: [URL] or any HD youtube,... the video is laggy on my 2.0 MB unibody. I know it's not my internet connection problem as my MBP 2.4 Unibody is playing fine. Should I download firefox? Does anyone out there with the same laptop has the same problem?
when I switch users on my mid 2007 iMac (with Mavericks 10.9.3), the background pictures resizes and the dock doesnt load. I've noted also that switching applications via command+tab doesn't show the icons of the applications, and when accessing "Notifications", it doesnt draw correctly on the screen (the area of the notifications center appears on the right of the screen, but an extension of the notifications is also drawn under hte desktops icons).
Okay so I have a brand new 13 inch non-retina MacBook Pro with a 2.9 GHz i7 and 4GB of RAM. I understand when I am running a game or FCPX why I would get close to or run out of RAM, but as I'm typing this, the only thing I have open is Google Chrome and Activity Monitor. I am using 3.99 out of 4.00 GB. I am planning on upgrading to 8GB soon, but is this normal? I have restarted and that doesn't work. Here is a picture of Activity Monitor:

For a couple of days the fan of my (15" late 2011) MacBook Pro has been constantly running and the Mac has become sluggish. The CPU temperature is 156 °F. It seems that the problem would be caused by "coreservicesd" process taking a huge percentage (57%) of the Mac RAM.
I am running OS X 10.9.3 with 8 Go. RAM and 500 Go. HD
I have a 13" MacBook Pro Mid 2012 model. Specs: Processor 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7, Memory 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Graphics Intel HD Graphics 4000 1024 MB, Software OS X 10.9.2 (13C64). A couple months ago I went to turn on my computer and I had a blinking folder with a question mark. I diagnosed the problem as a burned out SATA cable. I looked up the serial number of the cable I needed to order, ordered it, and in a couple weeks it arrived. After installing the new cable, I turned on my computer, and voila, no more blinking folder.
However, I noticed that the fan was really loud. Once logged in, I noticed the displays were laggy, and all video I tried to watch was very choppy. I decided to download iStat menus to see what was going on with my computer. Once I checked it, it showed that the cpu was 100% clogged up with 0% on idle. But the crazy part is that 89% of the CPU's tasks showed up as system, and under system, mainly kernal_task.
I restarted my computer, resetted the PRAM (which every once in a while would work regarding the clogged CPU but never the fan), but nothing has worked. Before this problem I was editing video projects for my broadcasting class on Premiere Pro with minor lag spikes. Now, I cannot even render a 5 second clip. I was reading somewhere that my heat sensor may be out, causing the fan to run, but I didnt know if that causes my CPU to clog up...
