OS X :: 10.5.2 Stacks - Dock Freezes - Force Quit

Feb 11, 2008

I installed 10.5.2 just about an hour ago, and I've noticed that my Dock is having serious Stacks problems now. If I have the Stacks set to List, there's no problem, but if I try to use fan or grid, the whole Dock freezes and I have to force-quit it from Activity Monitor.Anyone else having this problem? I'm experiencing it on both my Power Mac G5 and on my MBP.

MacBook Pro :: System Freezes When Trying To Force Quit

Sep 13, 2010

Say an app has crashed and I then bring up the force quit dialog. I then select the app I want to kill, and press the force quit button. Now as the little popup that says "Are you sure you want to force quit" is coming down, my machine freezes. This has happened 3 times exactly the same way. Other than that, the machine is smooth as clockwork. I'm kinda thinking there is some sort of GFX card bug or something?

MacBook Pro :: Safari Freezes After Several Hours Of Use - Cannot Force Quit

Sep 1, 2014

I just bought a Macbook Pro.  When using safari, it freezes at least once a day to a point I can't force quit, and had to do a hard shut down.  I've figured out that if I am using my computer and safari for more than a couple of hours, Safari just freezes.  An apple support representative did mention that laptops were not meant to be constantly on, so I have been shutting it down when not in use.  Still, I shouldn't have to shut down after an hour just to keep Safari from freezing.   

Does this sound normal?  Is there an easy fix?  Do I need to look at getting this computer replaced?  Or should I download a better web browser? 

I'm also new to Mac, and thought switching from a windows would mean better reliability.  So far I have been unimpressed with my computer.  I just want it to work without worrying about having to force it to shut down once a day.

I am using a MacBook Air.  When I attempt to select a file for uploading, Safari freezes and the spinning ball goes on and on.  Example:  When attempting to select and upload a document from my computer to the google drive, the wheel starts to spin when attempting to choose a file.  I am unable to upload anything due to this issue.

Software :: Computer Freezes Using ITunes / Safari - No Force Quit

Nov 16, 2008

For the past couple of weeks we have had a problem with itunes causing the computer (an iMac running OS X 10.5.5) to freeze and we can't even do a forced quit, but must turn off the machine manually. This seems to happen specifically when we are in the itunes store, not just working with the playlist. The computer has also frozen when in safari - the last time when we were trying to copy a page into Word. We thought it might be a wireless connectivity problem, but I have switched to an ethernet connection and still have the same problem happening.

How do I close an application that won't quit and doesn't show up in the force quit dialogue box?

OS X :: Stacks Disappeared From Dock

Sep 10, 2009

My stacks have disappeared from my dock. I used to automatically get my downloads on the dock and they fanned out when I clicked on it. That is gone now... not sure if I did something to get rid of it, but I want it back.

OS X :: Removed 'Stacks' From Dock Accidentally?

Jun 26, 2010

I thought I was moving something else to the recycle bin & at the last second realized I was dragging the stacks icon.

Was successful in missing the bin but must have dropped it off the dock & now I can't figure out how to replace it.

I would actually prefer to just have a 'shortcut/icon' for 'my pictures' there instead, as 99% of the time I clicked stacks I would go there.

I have an IMAC with OS X Version 10.5.8

OS X :: Dock Stacks Folder Icon

Jun 18, 2009

I downloaded a folder icon so I can use it on my dock. I used one that looks different from the usual blue folder. When I shut down the computer or restart it goes back to the bland blue folder. My questions is how can I keep the folder that I downloaded?

OS X :: Stacks / Dock Folder Icon On MacBook

Mar 25, 2009

I recently replaced my white MacBook (OS X 10.5) with a new MacBook.

In the old dock:
I had created a folder within the HD called "launcher"--so it would appear at the top of the list. I created a custom icon for the folder, created an alias on the desktop. I then put the alias in the dock. When I would click on the folder it would open like stacks.

New dock:
If I do the above process, the folder opens as a finder window--no more stacks. If I pull the folder directly to the dock, without creating the alias, the folder opens as a stack, but the icon is gone and replaced with the generic folder icon.

Is there a way to have a custom icon and have the stack/folder open as stacks? I don't like the option of putting a image file as the first item in the folder because then the "icon" that appears is smaller and in front of the folder I hate.

OS X :: IMac And AOL - Need To Force Quit

Mar 25, 2009

I purchased a new IMac Intel version and I am having a problem with AOL. I have always had a problem with AOL and my Macs (now on number 3). In the past, if I left AOL running it would not allow the Macs to close down without Force Quitting from AOL and AOL would not quit normally. With the new Mac, if I use AOL it won't quit and when I Force Quit it disconnects the Mac from the internet and I have to restart. As I live in Antigua both Apple and AOL have been useless at trying to solve the problem.

OS X :: Force Quit Has Wrong Key Command On 10.6?

May 28, 2010

I wanted to force quit an application on my first gen MacBook running Mac OS X 10.6.3, so I looked up the short cut key command from the Apple menu. I saw that it was option-command-power-button. I pressed these keys, and my Mac instantly displayed a black screen. After about five seconds, my Mac made the usual sounds of starting up. I booted up, and nothing seemed to have been affected, so I double checked Console, which didn't help much. I looked up the short cut key command for force quit online. The Internet says its option-command-esc. I tried the command, and up popped the force quit prompt. So why is the short cut key command WRONG on my Apple menu?

OS X :: How To Force Quit When Pressing Red Button

Nov 9, 2010

I'd like to force quit just like in Windows when I press the Red Button. It's stupid that OS X minimizes it. ( programs consume alot of CPU power if you do this, I watched activity monitor and some programs use 10-20% in this state )

How do I setup OS X to force quit an application when I press the Red Button?

OS X :: Apps Freezing - Can't Force Quit

Jul 28, 2008

I have a Mac Pro with 10.5.4 (Intel 2.66 Dual-Core -- 5GB ram) installed. Things have been running smoothly for a long time, but recently I've had a few kernel panics, which seem to have gone away, but now it's very common for applications to freeze, and I can't unfreeze them by force-quitting--I have to power the G5 down by holding the power button.

OS X :: After Force Quit No Way To Restart Application

Apr 23, 2009

Sometime when some application hangs I try to force quit it and the process completely disappears from the Activity Monitor, but the little white marker under the icon on the dock remains and there is no way to restart the application. Does any one know of an easy way out without having the restart the machine? I have a 2008 MBP with Leopard 100% up-to-date on the machine. I tried restarting the application directly from the Application folder instead of double clicking on the dock, and I got "An unexpected error occurred (error code -600)" -- according to Apple, error code -600 means: procNotFound - No eligible process with specified process serial number.

Software :: Safari 4.0.3 Not Responding - Need To Force Quit

Sep 25, 2009

Since the last update my Safari 4.0.3 crashes a lot. Like 3 or 4 times a day. Either that or it shows the spinning beach ball, meaning Safari is not responding and needs to be force quit. It looks like it's happening when a page is (re)loading. This looks a lot like the continuous crashing that happened to Safari 4 when it was just launched (was that in April, or May?). That was then reason for me to switch to Firefox. If this keeps up I might do that again. Or maybe to Chrome.

(I'm still on OSX.5.8).

Laptops :: Applications Are Stalling - Need To Force Quit

Apr 8, 2010

At first I thought it was a Quark problem. When doing a mundane action such as changing a word to Italic, Quark 7.5 stalls (pretty color spinning wheel comes up and won't go away) it has to be forced to quit. Now, the same thing happened in Acrobat 7, when I was just moving across the top menu bar to drop down the tools menu. I am running MAC 0S X 10.5 on a MAC Book Pro3 - 2.4 ghz. I've run maintenance and everything looks fine.

OS X :: Preserving Tabs In Safari After Force Quit?

Sep 8, 2009

Things usually go so well with Safari that I let my tabs grow to quite a number. No problem, until visiting an unfriendly web site that gives the spinning beach ball of frustration. Force quitting is the only solution, but there go all those tabs, some I've had open for days or weeks.

Is there a workaround that allows one to save the previous session, including tabs upon quitting Safari (to include Force Quit)?
