Sometimes restarting is not enough: you need to power off your Mac, wait for a little, and power it on again.It could be a script which act like the "schedule" program in system preferences: it would switch off the Mac immediately, the add 1 minute to the current time and switch it on again.
I just installed windows on my macbook Pro, but i could only install it on the. Boot camp driver. Cuz thats the only one that would format to NTFS. Now that i installed windows, i cannot switch back to osx. If i didnt delete or completely remove osx, will someone please tell me how i can get back to osx. Yes, i tried to f6 it and see if i can switch back but osx isnt even listed on there. So my question again, did i completely remove osx?
Is there a way to switch off the Keyboard Backlighting on a Macbook pro only when it is on battery power?I have been through the energy saver settings and it appears that the settings apply to both power and battery.

I have a question. I am currently using a 10/100 router that is connected to the internet and has 8 ports. However I want to take advantage of my 1000 cards on my machines within my home network for transfering files back and forth. So here is my question. If I purchase a switch (10/100/1000), can I have the switch connecting my machines and then have the switch connect to the router to get to the internet? Is this possible? Or do I need something else?
You move the mouse over to the scroll bar, favorites bar, minimize, etc... and the mouse is stuck in the wrong icon, be it the text pointer, hand pointer, window resize pointer... when it should be the arrow. It is such an obvious bug and I can't believe Apple hasn't noticed this.

I've been using the Windows 7 beta and it's incredible. No random Vista slowdowns, User Account Control works just right, and everything worked out of the box. And I love the new task bar. Since it's a new installation (on a better computer, too) it seems even faster than XP and even OS X. So now that many of you have had experience with the beta, do you think the final product will be enough to make you switch back to Windows? And if you've been a Mac user all your life, will you cross to the "dark" side?
I installed vista 64 went ok but now the computer defaults to vista and in windows there is no bootcamp icon to return it to mac, is there something I can install to get this to work, possibly the second Mac system disk would help? Also where do I get the drivers needed for vista. I have a Mac Pro 2.26 8 core.
I really do not like the appearance of Yosemite and I'd like to change it back. I went to the app store and downloaded the installer for Mavericks but when I open it it says that the file's too old to work on Yosemite. How do I go back?
I'm trying to share my wireless internet connection from my mac to my PC, the mac is connected to a switch with a tp cable and my windows pc as well.The switch doesn't have dhcp so I had to manually type in the ip address
When I moved from Windows to MacOS, I tried to find MacOS applications to replace the ones I used on Windows (just like everybody). The more I tried, the more I found out that I should go for apps designed specifically for the MacOS, as they were more streamlined than the ones made for Windows and then converted to the MacOS.
Anyway, I found out some truly useful MacOS apps and which have great functionality. Some of these apps have features which are not shared by any Windows apps (or at least it seems to me).
If I were to go back to Windows (just to make it clear: I'm not), would I be able to replace the MacOS apps I use with Windows apps with the same or similar functionality? I'd like to make this a kind of game in order to find out which MacOS apps are non-replaceable killer apps.r own apps to the list.
I installed Windows on Boot Camp, but the Application Install DVD is blank. To replace the DVD I have to drive 2-3 hours to an apple store or apple will send me one for $17. Is there a way I can get back to the Mac and delete the Boot Camp partition? The tool in control panel is not there because I could not use the Application istall DVD.
For reasons I would rather not get into, let's say that I had to stop using my built-in wireless card and had to switch to a USB adapter. Let's also say that the driver for the Asus & Hawking adapters (both re-packaged versions of the same crap) are buggy as hell and cause system panics when large memory consumers + crappy network driver are both in use (iTunes or RSync over the wireless).
In Safari 4.1.2 I acidently turned Caret browsing on. Before I could just use my arrowkeys to scroll through a page, but now I am suddenly Caret browsing. I checked google, I searched this forum for Caret, but nowhere on the internet, I can find a way to go back to 'normal' browsing. Does anybody know how to switch back?
The problem is sometimes switching from one user to another, we are able to type in a password, but the login and back buttons are disabled, like you are not able to click on them. It is basically frozen and we have to manually shut it down.
I was wondering if i need to turn off / close the switch on the bottom of the wireless mighty mouse when my MBP is in sleep mode....it seems that when i don't the mouse still connects and the screen kicks back on for a few seconds.....not sure if this is the case, but the logo on the outside of the case lights back up.
I just got an iMac running 10.6.1 And I still have a Mac Mini running 10.4.11, which allows me to access several apps running under Classic. I'd like to still access them on the glossy new monitor, with the wireless Magic Mouse. Since the iMac has no monitor input port, how do I hook up a KVM switch? Which brand do you recommend?
What's the best way to wirelessly b/up 3 mbp's to one external HD? I have 1 using Lion, 2 using Snow Leopard. I just purchased a Seagate 3T b/up for this process. I also use an Airport Router so my thought was to plug the HD into the Airport and use TM.
I just got a new Macbook Pro and f5 and f6 are used for the keyboard backlight. I don't need f6 but I'd like f5 to refresh the browsers. In preferences I can switch the f keys to be the default, but I just want this for f5. Does someone know how to do this?
I currently use an iMac (20" late 2006 model) as my main computer, but for my next I am seriously considering a MacBook Air. I bought my iMac with the intention of using all of it's power (I got the 2.33Ghz with 256mb X1600), but the only time I really tap into the processor is when I encode video, which I do rarely anymore, and when I play games, which I never do anymore since I have a PS3 for that. Now, all I really do is websurf, listen to music, use Garageband, and other basic stuff.
i know you've already tackled this a thousand times, but, having read those thousand threads, i'm still not sure which of these i should go for. you all seem generous with your opinions, so i'll ask again.i need to replace my 4 year old dell 700m (12.1", 1.6ghz, 512mb ram, tiny 24gb HD) as it has become painfully slow and things are beginning to stop working. i've very much enjoyed its portability (it's small and weighs just over 4 pounds) which is why the MBA has caught my eye. my concern, is that i've heard all these things about it being underpowered - but underpowered for what? the lure of the MBP, of course, is that it's a lot more power for its moderate increase in bulk and weight.
