IMac :: I7 Mouse Cursor Jumpy And Impossible To Control

Dec 14, 2009

My i7 iMac arrived today with no screen issues and no major problems at all (after scouring the forums the past few weeks, I was a nervous wreck waiting for it). I ordered on Black Friday and believe I have one of the most recent batches with, I cross-my-fingers hope, none of the screen problems that have been reported. However, I am about to gouge my eyes out because of a blasted erratic mouse issue in OSX. I am using a Razer Naga (though it is still a problem with every other mouse I hook up) and regardless of the settings, the cursor is jumpy and impossible to control at times.

I am Bootcamp running Win7 64 and have zero mouse issues on that side of the computer. Its only when I boot into OSX that I have the mouse problems. I have tried the Naga drivers and two USB/Mouse shareware apps, all to no avail. Otherwise, the iMac runs like a dream. In WoW with Ultimate Settings I get 50 fps in Dalaran and 120+ out flying in the world. LotRO runs great as well -- with the recommended settings I am at around 60 fps at all times, even standing at the Prancing Pony in Bree.

OS X Yosemite :: Mighty Mouse Sensitive Vertical Scrolling Sensitive?

Dec 4, 2014

This issue may have been present in Mavericks as well, but I have no first hand experience with Mavericks. I was recently updated to Yosemite at work and this is when my Mighty Mouse (wired, with a scroll wheel button on top, NOT MAGIC MOUSE) started going nuts. 

I have my work settings matched exactly to the settings on my Mighty Mouse at home running on Mountain Lion. Horizontal scrolling is not an issue at all, but vertical scrolling is so incredible sensitive. I very slight scroll will send me to the op or bottom of a page in almost all applications. It is extremely annoying in my Adobe apps. I work in Illustrator moots the day and this scrolling issue has killed my production time.  

I use my vertical and horizontal scrolling quite a lot in doing my work. The vertical again is fine and seems to match my scrolling at home, but any more than a single click of the scroll wheel since updating to Yosemite will send my cursor off of the artboard, which is sometimes very large. I t has too often centime to the edges of the pasteboard which than takes forever to try to scroll back into position. I simply use the Fit Artboard in Window key command to center my work on screen and then gently scroll to where I need to be.  

To set my scrolling speed to slow will correct the vertical scrolling but will make my horizontal scrolling so heavy that I have to resort to using the hand tool to move around in my Illustrator app, which I have employed full-on at this point because it is the only consistent solution I have found. 

Many people have suggested that I get rid of the Mighty Mouse and use the Magic Mouse. I have many reasons for not doing this (my 3D work needs a middle button for one), but I have also been reading that these Magic Mouse users are having their own scrolling issues.

Hardware :: Jumpy Mouse - How To Diagnose

Sep 26, 2010

I built a Hackintosh a while ago, and it's had this problem since I built it. The curser seems to randomly accelerate/jump while moving the mouse as steady as possible across the screen.

OS X :: Full Screen Desktop - Jumpy?

Aug 31, 2008

Okay, I am running OS 10.5, and one of my kids did something to the desktop that makes it look "jumpy". When moving the mouse, the screen moves also, since not everything fits on the screen any longer. To see the dock, you move the mouse down, but then the menu bar at the top disappears. It's almost like they did something to make the screen larger than the display, so not everything on the desktop can fit the display (iMac). Luckily, it is not my user account, but still, it is driving me nuts!!

MacBook :: Caps Lock Key Not Sensitive

Jan 5, 2009

I just got a new aluminum macbook, and the only thing that seems like a problem is the caps lock key is not sensitive like the rest of the keys. I tap it like every other key and it usually takes 2-3 or more times before it changes. Is there really anything to do? I hate to take it back for something so trivial. But I am afraid it will bother me more and more.

MacBook :: Very Sensitive Headphone Jack On Unibody

Feb 9, 2009

If I pull on my headphones while they're plugged into my unibody any more than .5mm the sound goes back to the Macbook speakers. Are anybody else's headphones this sensitive? I really don't even have to pull on the headphones. The headphone jack doesn't securely hold the cord.

MacBook Pro :: Ambient Light Sensor Is Too Sensitive?

May 12, 2010

I've been using my mum's MPB C2D quite a bit, in anticipation of my own i5 arriving, and one thing that gets on my nerves is the ambient light sensor. It seems to be really sensitive, to the point where it will change the screen brightness when there has been no real changes in ambient light. If you move your hand over the sensor at the top of the screen, or even if someone walks past and casts a shadow it can change for a few seconds. Also, just moving the laptop around and the sensor changes the screen.

Obviously this setting can be turned off, but I'd like the feature if it wasn't so sensitive. Other than that, I love the MBP and can't wait for mine!

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Button Has Become Overly Sensitive?

Jul 1, 2012

After years of faithful sevice, my MacBook Pro has recently taken to registering clicks as double or even triple clicks, and I have to try several times to get the single click I want. Actually, it's become so sensitive that it only takes a light touch (less than needed for the button to click) to think that it's being clicked. I assume this is a hardware issue. Do I need to take my computer apart to solve it?

Applications :: ITunes Visualiser Jumpy In Full Screen?

I am running my MacMini 1.83GHz, OSX10.6.3 through my 37" Sharp LCD TV as my media centre.

When I activate the iTunes visualiser in full screen, the image jumps and jagged lines appear randomly across the screen.

This does not happen if the visualiser Is running where you can see iTunes control bar above and below the visualiser graphics. It also does not seem to happen with any of the other iTunes built in visualisers.

MacBook Pro :: Glass Trackpad Too Sensitive Lack Of Resistance

Feb 7, 2010

I've had my Macbook Pro since mid 2009. It's been great, never had any real problems. Then in about October, I noticed one side of my trackpad wasn't offering as much resistance as it was before. I just ignored it, didn't mind too much. But it progressively got worse, and eventually got so sensitive that I couldn't even scroll without it clicking when I didn't want it too.I was pretty upset, called apple, they told me to send it in and fixed it for free. It was all very nice, orderly, and quick. So I was satisfied.But, lo and behold, it's at it again. I can't believe it. It hasn't gotten so sensitive that I can't use it yet, but I'm very upset right now. I have no idea why it's doing this. It's not really overheating, I have never dropped or hit my macbook. I'm the only one who uses it. I don't abuse it at all.

OS X :: File Names Not Case-sensitive?

Oct 25, 2010

Every unix system that I've worked with has had case-sensitive file names. In other words, file name "foo" is different than "Foo" is different than "FOO" and so on. In the MAC OS X shell,

if I have a file name FOO, and I type "more foo", then the contents of FOO are displayed, instead of an error message saying "foo not found". It also means that I can't really create files "foo" and "FOO".

Is this something that Apple has implemented on top of unix? Is it possible to get around this, so that the names do indeed become case-sensitive? It doesn't seem like an inherent unix thing, because if I type "f <tab>", and the only file in the directory.

OS X :: Case Sensitive Installation On IMac

Dec 10, 2009

So, I just received my iMac and after playing with it for a few weeks I find that I don't like the fact that it was shipped with a case insensitive install. I was hoping I could simple run some command to convert, but there doesn't appear to be any "easy" way to do this. I assume I can simply reinstall and as part of the install format the drive case sensitive.

My questions are as follows:
1) Is a reformat/reinstall my only option (not a problem but I though I would ask)
2) I don't expect Mac OSX to have a problem running in this environment but if someone is aware of any restrictions I would love to hear it.
3) Would this have any effect on my plans to install Windows 7 via bootcamp? (once it's supported that is).

Applications :: I Movie Slide Show Cross Dissolve Transitions Are "jumpy"?

Apr 23, 2007

I initially made a slide show of 250 old family photos in iPhoto. It looks great and the cross dissolve function is very smooth.

However, I now need to take portions of music rather than entire songs and blend the songs into each other. This requires that do the slide show in iMovie so can use the timeline to edit the music to fit with certain portions of the slideshow.

The problem that I am running into is that the cross dissolve function in iMovie is jumpy and not smooth like it is in iPhoto. Also, some photos have "stuttering" and flashing between the transitions. I have tried adjusting the cross dissolve time and length of photo and can't seem to get it to look right. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? For example, if I want each photo to be on the screen for 3 seconds, how long should I make the transition? If I remove the transitions, this problem is gone. But then the photos just go from 1 to the other after 3 seconds and the effect is a bit jarring. I'm stumped. In addition, the image quality does not seem as good as in iPhoto - but if I use iPhoto I cannot make a title page or time the music.

OS X :: FileVault - Sensitive Stuff Outside Of The Home Folder?

Dec 14, 2008

As a non-UNIX-geek, and someone unfamiliar with the internals of OS X in general, I'd like to ask ya'll where sensitive data might be stored outside of the Home directory. As you may know, FileVault only encrypts the Home directory, and stores the password as a hash of the account password and the "master" reset password.

So, what sensitive stuff is outside of the Home Directory? Any system logs with potentially damaging info? Any badly written applications (i.e. MS Office 2004) that might keep sensitive data within the Application directory? Any stuff inside of the Library or System folders?

Windows On Mac :: Tap Click Too Sensitive And Touchpad Unresponsive

Jun 25, 2009

On OS X, the touchpad is perfect. I never accidentally tap click and mouse movements are perfectly smooth. On XP, the tap click is so sensitive that it's virtually unusable, and the touchpad has some responsiveness issues. Is anyone else having these problems, and is there a drivers fix? I'm using a 2.66ghz unibody MacBook Pro if that's relevant.

OS X :: Transferring ITunes From Case Sensitive To Journaled

Oct 22, 2009

My entire I-tunes library is kept on an external HD that is formatted as MAC OS Extended (Case-Sensitive, Journaled). I formatted this external over a year ago when I moved to Mac per the genius's recommendation at the Apple Bar. Today, I had the sneaking suspicion that it was time to migrate to a new External HD as mine has some wear on it and I kept getting weird error messages during the transfer of the I-tunes library (meaning it just stops and give me a very windowesque error message).

What I have been able to tell is that MAC OS Extended (Case-Sensitive, Journaled) will not correctly transfer to regular old MAC OS (Journaled). Am I stuck in "Case-Sensitive" land forever with my I-tunes Library? Apple Care offered no advice except to point out the problem. I can format the new drive as Case-sensitive but then it appears that I'll be stuck with doing the same thing when I get another External HD in the future.

Windows On Mac :: Trackpad Super Sensitive In Bootcamp

Nov 2, 2009

I dual-boot OS X with Windows 7 (Home Premium) on my MacBook Air and the trackpad is super sensitive in Bootcamp. It's not the cursor speed, but the accidental "mouse clicks" while moving the cursor across the screen that have become troublesome (I daytrade securities in Windows, and a rogue mouse can be an absolute back-breaker). The only resolution has been to disable "tap to click" in the Bootcamp Control Panel. I've seen dozens of aged threads across the web regarding the issue that unfortunately provide no real solution for this. Do you have any solutions of your own?

OS X Server :: Blank Disk Images To Store Sensitive Data?

Dec 19, 2006

I created some blank disk images to store sensitive data in; with some I created my own password and with others I had the system do it. I also made the mistake of instructing the system to remember the passwords. Remembering the passwords kind of defeats the purpose as it automatically opens the folders. I want to be prompted for a password and never have been. I want to delete the blank disk image folders, but have not found a way of doing this and then I will create them again and instruct it not to remember the passwords. How to delete or change the password settings?
