MacBook :: Freezes Up On ONE Account

Aug 24, 2010

So I've had this MacBook for about 4 years now. There has been recently(3 months ago) had problems with it, such as not being able to select things but that has been fixed by apple due to the swelling of the battery. Therefore it was fixed free of charge. I wanted to mention this just in case it could be relevant to the current problem it has. Recently, on my 2nd account (I have 2 on my macbook), everything suddenly froze and I could not move my mouse. I thought it was probably due to the lag of youtube and having more than 3 applications in use. Therefore, I restarted my computer and it automatically logged in on my 1st account(I set that on my log in settings). So everything works FINE on that account and moves smoothly(it also works fine on the log in screen), with no problems. I log into my second one again and the mouse is still stuck (although I can move it within the first 5 second span). I restart multiple times, the 1st account being fine, ONLY having problems with the second one.

Considering I have important files on the 2nd I decide to take a risk and change the log in settings to automatically log in as the 2nd account. I restarted the laptop and it logged into my 2nd account. And it worked. I was happy and tried to go onto my 1st account as well. Then I encountered the same problem. It seems the mouse only freezes (ONLY the mouse because the keyboard and power button works fine whenever I restart it) on the account that's log in settings are not set to automatic. I have important files on BOTH accounts, therefore deleting one is not a solution. This incident happened 2 months ago. I ignored it since it wasn't that big of a deal and my laptop is still working fine. But changing the log in settings every time I need to switch is rather aggravating, don't you think? Is there anyway I can fix this myself or do I have to bring this to Apple?

Software :: One User Account Freezes On Startup?

Mar 15, 2009

I'm on a G5 in OS X 10.3.9 running a few user accounts. The main one (aside from the system admin account) has quite a bit of software on it and it freezes on startup while the others work fine. I don't think its a RAM issue because I also run an external drive from time to time and it works perfectly. Something I've installed is freezing the system under the one user account but I'm not sure what.

IMac :: Logging Out Secondary Account Freezes Screen On Login?

Jan 31, 2010

I have a Mid-2007 Mac Mini and I've noticed every couple days, when I log out of the secondary account, it takes a relatively long time to return to the login screen. The blue screen sits there for maybe 30 - 40 seconds, but then when it returns to the main screen the whole machine freezes. The only thing I can move is the mouse, I can't click any of the buttons such as restart, sleep or get back into my account. I always have to do a hard shutdown.

OS X :: Unable To Activate Guest Account / System Freezes With Rainbow Pizza

Jul 21, 2010

New Mac Mini 2009, Apps, user and settings imported from a G4 Cube running Leopard perfectly. When I go to System Prefs - Accounts - Guest and I mark the checkbox "Allow Guests connect to this computer" System Prefs freezes with rainbow pizza. Then, no matter if I kill the application or not, the system is death. If I launch new apps from the dock, they bounce a four five times and then stop but the applications don't launch. Not even I can restart. When all the applications closes the system starts a loop of spinning clock wheel - blue screen - clock wheel - blue screen forever.

This is the second new Mac that has the same exact problem after importing all my data, and it's 100% reproducible. I returned the first one to Apple cause I thought it was a hardware failure. What I have done?

Repair permissions and diks
Reinstall the system
Create a test user and try from there
Try from root user
System log when I click the guest box:
System log after checking Guest User Access:

MacBook Pro :: OS Lion Couldn't Access Guest Account And New User Account

May 24, 2012

I bought this new MacBook Pro a month ago.  When I try logging into my guest account, it froze.  I had no other alternative but to get out of it by pressing the power button.  Then I tried open a new user account to see if it also has the same problem.  Unfortunately it did have the same problem - froze after I logged in.  I had done a harddisk check, there seemed to be no problem.

OS X Leopard :: Lost My Account Photo / Restoring My Account Back To Previous

Jul 17, 2009

So I took an account photo when i recently installed leopard at the start up...when it's creating the account and all of that stuff...

I was messing around with Photo Booth, and clicked the account photo button, and it replaced the old one that i like with a new one...

How can i get my old one back? where was it located? I have made time machine backups, so maybe if i knew where the old photo is stored at, i could retrive it?

OS X :: Lost Administrator Account / Unable To Change Account Back

Jun 12, 2008

We had a HDD fail on one of our office Mac laptops (a power pc G4). Apple repaired it and I restored all files etc from a backup. I was the administrator during the restore. Before I could get back, the user changed that account to a standard account and changed the name. Now there is no way to change the account back, because there is no admin to authenticate the change. Anything I can do? I am not an advanced computer/Mac person.

OS X Tiger :: Lost My User Account / Changed Account Name In Finder

Jun 3, 2010

I have just lost my user account that I normally use. It happened after I changed my name for my user account in the Finder. I clicked Get Info and changed the name from Helen Andersson to only Helen. and after that nothing is the same and i cant go back either that I know of. When I start the computer now everything that I had on my desktop and in my Itunes, Icalendar, addressbook, and Aperture are not there. I have found them (well at least what i had on my desktop and my itunes but not the other information), so they are still on the computer but I dont know how to get back to my normal user account.

When I check my System preferences Account I only have one account so its not like I made a new one and have two. But I can also see that the one I am using now that has nothing on it is made today.

So please if anyone can help me get my iMac to go back to the old user and all its settings the same way I would very much appreciate it. Because this user has nothing and I have to start everything from scratch even my internet settings I had to download again to be able to go on the internet. This user has nothing.

Up till now, all the family have been using just one user account on our iMac. (OK, I now know that's not a good idea!) I'm now going to be working from home so have set up a new user as Work. I've been using an IMAP mail service in Mail on the family user account and I've now set it up on the work account. If I delete the IMAP account from Mail in the family user account, will this delete my mail off the IMAP server so I cannot access it on the wrok user account?

The AppleID of all my accounts (iTunes, ADC, Apple Dev Center, apple store) is my mobileme email (username@mac.com)

I would like to change this (using some other appleid to separate these accounts from mobileme) so that I don't need to renew my mobileme subscription. From Apple websites, I cannot do this, AppleID cannot be changed if it is a mobileme id.

How can I do? What will happend if my mobileme subscription finished? All accounts will be finished or what else?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: AD Account Canot Create A Mobile Account

Apr 10, 2012

Working on a 2011 Macbook Pro with 10.7.3.I"ve setup many other macs with the same build and they all have created the mobile account when logging in for the first time, but this one will not allow the mobile account to get created.I'm connected to the line that gives me LAN access. I can log in with my own credencials and that works fine.I suspect it's the way the AD account is setup on the server but I'm not an admin for that. The same account sets up fine on a Windows box.Once I log in for the first time, it goes directly to the desktop. Basicly a local account but no user directory is created. With Fast User Switching turned on I see that it's showing someone elses name there, not the user that I logged in with. i.e. It should show 'joe jones' but it's showing 'fred smith'

Can't get screen grabs because there is no access. Can't show the FInder drives for the same reason, even if I go make the user an admin from a local admin account.I've seen some fixes in the forums but nothing works.I could just give in and create a local account an leave it at that, but that is not a fix

Safari with like 3-4 tabs opened
iTunes playing a song

So suddenly the song stopped playing, and I couldn't move the cursor or anything. Everything was frozed, so I had to hold down the power button. Why does this happen, and is there anything I can do to prevent it?

MacBook Pro :: MBP Freezes All Time

Jan 7, 2011

I'm all out of possibilities, as far as I can think.I wound up with a Macbook Pro 2ghz Core Duo, and while I knowit's old as hell, I'd like to get it in proper working order, as I feel it still has a lot of life in it if I can get it to stop freezing.It freezes without rhyme or reason, there's no specific application, action, etc that the issue is confined to. It's anything at any time.

I've tried replacing the hard drive, there's an issue with the dvd drive so I just cloned the startup drive, I've repaired permissions, used 3rd party programs to wipe caches, verify and repair the hdd, even wipe and restore system and application settings. I just put new ram in it as well. I'm considering purchasing a new superdrive or external optical drive just to be able to run the hardware test or try a fresh install, but I hoped to obtain some insight prior to spending more money than I already have put into it. I've really put a lot of time into this, and as much as I'd like to take the ultimate solution and just buy a new mbp, that's not an option at the moment.
