OS X Mavericks :: Activity Monitor Window Won't Stay Hidden At Login

Aug 22, 2014

I recently upgraded to Mavericks. I have Startup Items set to launch Activity Monitor and have the Hide checkbox checked, but the window keeps appear at login.

All of the other apps set in a similar manner work just fine (i.e., they start and their windows say hidden) ... Why Hide does not mean "Hide" for this one app?

iMac, OS X Mavericks (10.9.4)

MacBook Pro :: 4GB But Activity Monitor Only Showing 3.75GB

Sep 17, 2009

I was checking out my Activity Monitor the other day and I have noticed this before. I have 4GB in my MacBook Pro and updated to SL and now AM is only showing that I have 3.75GB. I figured maybe it was just an error and I have shut my MBP off and it still hasn't changed.

MacBook Pro :: Activity Monitor And Console Won't Open?

Apr 10, 2012

I knew everything was working fine on my Macbook Pro 2.4 GHz i5, 8gb ram, Mac OS X Version 10.7.3. I loaded up my Mac this morning and tried to open Activity Monitor but wont open. When I drag the application to the dock, there is no icon picture for it. I looked on the internet and it told me to load up Console, which I then found done the same thing.

In Utilities I realised the App 'Podcast Capture' was also missing its icon, but since I do not use that, I am not worried.†After looking through google again, I ended up using FirstAid and repaired the disk and permissions. That still made no difference.†Finally I then decided I could delete the .plist from preferences, to then find neither of the files for Console and Activity Monitor were there? And I had not deleted them.

Once last thing, in Terminal, every time I open it, it comes up with, bash: /usr/libexec/path_helper: Unknown error: -22

Not sure if this relates to it in anyway? The only thing I know that may have effected it was setting up a Minecraft server which I had to use a chmod a+x (file location). Which I thought gave it the commands. Didn't work anyway, but whilst in the middle of doing that I realised all these other issues.

MacBook :: Activity Monitor Shows Idle Memory To Be 80% Or More?

Mar 5, 2012

I'm using a 2009 model MacBook with 4GB of RAM and a 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo Processor. I've been having issues for quite a while now where even with just ONE program active, it will often lag, slow WAY down, or even flat out crash. Upon further inspection in the Activity Monitor, I discovered that the vast majority of the computer's memory -- at least 80% and up -- is marked as idle. 

First: What does this mean?

Second: Is there any thing that can be done about the stated issues?

OS X :: What Are The Little Activity/pop Up Window That Show Up

Jun 27, 2010

so, not sure what I did, but recently these little windows pop up that tell me what certain applications are doing. Currently they show up when I change a song in itunes a last.fm window pops up to tell me the song changed, and it also pops up in skype it pops up telling me the other person is typing and when they send there message. It's probably something really dumb that I didn't realize I did, but I can't seem to figure it out.

They are all the last.fm windows covering the screen. They usually don't show up in that mass amount, but I just skipped through itunes so a bunch of them would show up and get the point across

OS X :: Download YouTube Videos Via Activity Window?

Jun 29, 2010

a colleague of mine has an older MacBook with Mac OS X 10.4.11 and Safari 4.x. She can use the Activity window in Safari to download a YouTube video, but after the download is finished (20MB or 6MB or ...), the downloaded file is called "videoplayback", without the .flv suffix. Even if she appends the .flv suffix, she can't play them back in VLC or SWF + FLV Player.

It's no biggie, as she can use KeepVid, but I was just curious, why it is that way. Does anyone know?

Safari :: Activity Window Not Showing All Items?

Apr 27, 2012

I have been using safari's activity window for downloading all sorts of media by using the activity window. However, the items in the activity window no longer show up. On youtube for example, the mb file is no longer showing up in the windows activity like it use to. In the past, when this problem occurred, refreshing the page would fix this problem but this method is no longer working. I have noticed that this problem is only happening to youtube. When i went to vimeo, the video file could still be viewed in the activity window whilst it was loading, e.g. 1.3 mb of 30mb. I am using a macbook pro running on mac os x with safari version 5.0.3.

OS X :: Activity Monitor - Should I Increase RAM?

Jan 10, 2011

I'm not sure if this is cause for concern but it seems like my "free" memory has been really low as of late.

I use Safari and Mail 90% of the time. The other 10% is occasional iTunes use, MPlayer use, and Preview use. Is it time for me to upgrade to 4 GB of RAM?

Note - I do use the following extensions in Safari: AdBlock and YouTube5.

OS X :: Looking For CPU Usage In Activity Monitor

Sep 18, 2009

So maybe what I am looking for is in the activity monitor, but I just can't find it. I always see people on here posting screen shots of their CPU usage. If they have a quad core machine then there are four columns with blue in it showing the usage. Where can I find this in OS X, or is this a 3rd party program?

OS X :: Activity Monitor Not Responding

Nov 5, 2009

Im running SL (updated of course) on my MacBook Pro 4,1. Im fairly new to Macs and to be honest I didnt even know about Activity Monitor till very recently. So I figured I would check out whats going on with my system and fire it up. Activity Monitor does not respond. It starts to open but then sits at this screen with a beach ball...

After a while I usually just Force Quit. Ive ran Onyx recently as well as Disk Repair and everything seems ok.

OS X Mavericks :: Apple Mail Activity Not Showing In Viewer Window

Dec 11, 2014

The left column of Apple Mail viewer window has a function at the bottom allows you to see pop up the  "Mail Activity" but very little activity shows in there.  Nothing like the separate Activity function which you can open from under the drop down "Window". 

Is the Mail Activity in the viewer window not working properly or is it supposed to show only very limited Mail Activity?  

Would be convenient to not have to use the separate window for viewing Activity.

Mac mini, OS X Mavericks (10.9.5), Mac Air OS X Mavericks (10.9.5)

OS X :: Process NOT Quit Via Activity Monitor

Nov 26, 2010

A while back I installed an application that allowed me to stream media from my Mac to my PS3, called Gridcast. It didn't work well, so I got rid of it. Since then I have had two processes constantly running, "gridcastd" & "GridCastAlerts." When i select and quit the processes nothing happens, they just continues to run.

OS X :: CPU Meter In Activity Monitor All Wrong?

Dec 11, 2010

According to the screenshot, both Users (green) and System (red) uses 0,19% CPU each. Which means that idle (black) should be around 99%, which it clearly isn't. If I check each process individually, none is using more than 1% of CPU. The screenshot is taken after a reboot and I don't use and third-party background services like VMWare. It's Mac Pro 2.66 Quad (2009).

OS X :: Activity Monitor - Process Names

Jun 30, 2009

I've got the activity monitor open in front of me. There are the usual apps I can see, Logic, FF, iTunes, Finder, MS Messenger etc etc. Though there is a lot of other stuff, I don't know what it is (probably system stuff?). For instance there is configd, syslogd, mds, cron most of these have root inb the server column. In the User column for my name I can see mdworker, pboard, launchd and couple of others.

OS X :: How To Change Activity Monitor Icon

Jul 26, 2009

I have recently tried changing the Activity Monitor Icon by using Candybar, for some reason Candybar does not have a Activity monitor in the menu. I have than went to Activity monitor application which is on the desktop and clicked on " show package contents" + "resources" and dragged the original activity monitor icon to a random folder and dragged a new icon into the resources folder. I logged out and logged back in and now the icon did now show up, there is a application icon now.

I have dragged the new icon out and put the old one back in the folder to see if it would go back to its original icon and now it does not go back to how it was in the first place, so pretty much no icon exists but only a application icon shows but the program does open up. Another thing I dont understand is why I could not see a Activity Monitor Icon in the CandyBar program, I am not sure how to change the Icon or how people change it or why they have modified activity monitor icons is you cant change it.

Sep 15, 2009

Using SL. I installed iStat and it reports less "wired memory" being used than Activity Monitor. Right now iStat reports: 449MB wired, 515MB active, 364MB inactive and 2.45 GB free. Activity Monitor reports: 706MB wired, 515 MB active, 364MB inactive and 2.45 GB free. Also, our school macs are at a whopping 100MB wired, whereas I'm always above 500MB.

OS X :: Activity Monitor Disappeared / Have To Reinstall?

Dec 16, 2009

The computer, Mac 10.4 Tiger, sent a message that my Startup drive is almost full. I tried to do the best to make more space available and inadvertently must have done something to the files of the Activity monitor. The next morning when I turned the computer on, it went up in smoke, i.e., disappeared and cannot be found in 'applications'.

Do I have to reinstall? Can I reinstall just for the Activity Monitor or ?
