MacBook Pro :: Takes Several Minutes To Go To Sleep Mode When Close The Lid

Jun 3, 2014

I have a problem with my Mid-2012 non-Retina MBP. When I close the lid, it takes around 4 minutes for the light indicator to dim and it's not safe to move the machine as it's probably doing something and it's HDD is probably still spinning. It's not like this for my friend's machine, even though it's an older machine.

MacBook Air :: WiFi Keeps Dropping After Sleep And Takes At Least 20 Minutes To Come Back On

Jun 2, 2014

This is driving me crazy. I have tried so many fixes but nothing has worked. Every time I hibernate / sleep my 2012 macbook air, the wifi drops and takes at least 20 minutes to come back on when I open the laptop again. 

I can reboot, turn the wifi off and on, change preferences...everything. Nothing works.

MacBook Pro - Cannot Close The Lid Without Going Into A Sleep Mode After Updating

Apr 28, 2012

Ever since I have updated my Macbook Pro to the newest version of OS, it will go into a sleep mode when I close the lid that I can only wake with powering off the entire computer. I used to be able to close the lid for the night, open it in the morning, and it would be like I never even left it overnight. Now I try to wake it up with pushing everything possible. Is this new to the update? I even tried to set the settings to "never sleep".

MacBook :: Whenever Close The Fan Make Noise While In Sleep Mode

Jul 19, 2009

I recently notice that whenever i close my macbook the fan would kick in while in sleep mode. in addition because of the usage of the fan while in sleep mode my battery consumption diminishes very quickly. also after i open it up the macbook is frozen (the screen does not come on and i must restart manually). ive had my macbook for about 2 year and have gone through about 240 battery cycles.

I have a Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.2 13" (White-SR) Specs (MB062LL/B)

IMac (Intel) :: When In Sleep Mode - Programs Are Forced To Close

Aug 29, 2014

2010 iMac running 10.9.4.  Lately certain programs are forced to close on a regular basis.  This includes Safari, Mail, Crashplan.  It usually happens when the computer is sleeping.  When I wake up the computer first thing in the morning, I usually have 3 - 4 messages saying that certain programs were forced to restart.  This can also sometimes occur when the computer is not sleeping, but when I am using it.  Typically it's Safari that is forced to restart.  

Recently upgraded RAM and added Crashplan software for data backup.

MacBook :: Slow Booting - Takes More Than 5 Minutes

Feb 8, 2009

It seems that my MB(unibody 2.0Ghz) has some problem. I recently reinstalled leopard (and some softwares). It takes a little bit more than 2 minutes to boot. Worse comes with Windows 7 beta. I tried both 32bit and 64bit versions. It takes more than 5 minutes to boot! I saw some guy showing some comparison of boot time on youtube. It seems that Leopard should take < 1 minute and Windows 7 takes < 2 minutes (with the same hardware!). My MB takes around 3 times more than other MBs. Where should I start? I recently ran memtest and it turns out to be okay. HDD S.M.A.R.T also reports 'verified'. I'm not sure what would be the next.

MacBook Pro :: New System Takes 7 Minutes Or More To Boot?

Dec 24, 2009

I'm just not having luck with my last 3 MacBook Pros. My new 2.8ghz 15" now takes over 7 minutes to boot to the login screen. Before this happened, I recently copied 139 GB in sound libraries to my system drive. Before I went to work, I quickly closed the laptop and put in my bag. When I took it out of my bag several hours later, the unit was off and battery practically at full charge. When I started it shortly afterwards, it took forever to boot. It would sit there at the grey screen with the spinning circle, then get to the blue background (just before you get to the login screen) and wait there for a while. Most of the time I think you can hear the hard drive churning.

Once you log on, everything seems to be normal. I'm curious if perhaps that 139GB copy did something to the OS to slow it down. FYI it has 274/ 500 GB of free space left. Perhaps the hard drive didn't have a chance to park when I quickly put the laptop in my bag and I damaged it? To complicate matters, I have the MCE optibay installed with a 320 GB hard drive loaded in it. The only thing I can think of is to back up, and reload the OS. This should tell me if it's software or hardware related.

MacBook Air :: Takes Almost 10 Minutes From Switch On To The Log On Screen

Mar 29, 2012

My 3-weeks old Macbook Air is taking almost 10 minutes to get from switch on to the log on screen, it seems to be stuck at the white screen with the Apple logo & the spinning grey wheel. Anybody faced similar problems before? What caused this? I was working with about 7 or 8 different Excel files open at one go and a couple were corrupted (but repaired). I have never experienced anything like this with my i5 iMac and wasn't expecting this on the Macbook Air. Any light at the end of the tunnel?

Software :: System Not Exiting Sleep Mode / Kicks Back Into Sleep Mode

Dec 29, 2009

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.

OS X :: IMac 10.6.3 Takes 15 Minutes To Reboot?

Apr 8, 2010

For about a week now, every time I boot my iMac mid-2007 20" running 10.6.3 I get the following problems

-Booting takes about 15 minutes of seeing the apple logo, and a bar that fills slowly under it...

-When it finally boots all the dock icons are reset to the ones you get with a brand new mac, spaces and expose is reset as well.

-Spotlight reindexes Macintosh HD.

-Adium loses all contact icons

-Mouse loses all it's custom settings.

-Login items are gone, I have tried not to re-enable those.

-Shut down takes about 10 minutes as well, while I see only the blue screen of shut down...

It seems that it is losing more and more settings every day. Today I had to turn on time machine again, although it was on before shut down...

Is this like losing an application support folder or something like that?

Applications do not seem intact as well.

Safari loses all web screenshots from cover flow iTunes reupdates the library etc....

What's up witn all these?

Mac Pro :: Startup Manager Takes 2-3 Minutes To Show Up

Sep 3, 2014

If I let the system boot normally, it boots as fast as usual. And no problems during work, either. But if I boot holding the "Option" key pressed, the startup manager screen takes about 3 minutes to show up. When it does show up, however, it works as expected. This happens even if I have no external devices connected at all.

OS X :: Unable To Eject Cd Drive / Takes 20 Minutes Before Ejecting

Aug 4, 2009

I got West Wing stuck in my computer. I'm on an Intel Macbook (No Open Firmware >_<)I've tried:

1. Using a credit card to keep the CD from spinning.

2. Ejecting the CD in every program I can think of.

3. Going into Terminal and entering the eject command.

Whenever I boot up my computer, it takes about 20 minutes before my computer gives up on trying to eject the CD. I've tried pretty much everything. I'm trying to avoid taking this to the Genius Bar if possible. I'm a college kid and as such can't really afford to lose my computer for them to fix it. Anyone have any other suggestions? (i.e. is there a manual eject that anyone wants to suggest? Or anything else?)
