OS X :: Apps Can't Wake Mac

Dec 15, 2008

Any applications that needs to wake up my Mac just won't. I have no clue what is wrong and why these won't work.

For example:
-Awaken (for alarms)
-EyeTV3 (for show recordings)

I really want to get this fixed. Now I can't rely on Awaken or EyeTV to really do anything unless I'm there waking up my Mac on time. And I don't want to leave my Mac awake 24/7.

App Store :: Apps Are Missing And All Listed As Hidden But Can't Unhide The Apps

May 30, 2012

Under purchases I'm getting "you have not purchased any apps." Under Itunes in the Cloud all my apps are listed as hidden but when I click "view hidden purchases" it says I do not have any hidden purchases. I have three Macs and all are experiencing the same issue so this is an account problem and not a computer software problem. The funny thing is that it's still recognizing updates.Yes, I've tried signing out and back in to view my account with no luck. The only thing I did weird last night was I disabled the Itunes store and automatic downloading on one computer. This morning when I had the above problem I put all the settings back.

Applications :: How To Auto-hide Apps When Switching Between Apps

Oct 12, 2009

I'm looking for a way to keep distraction to a minimum when working. I'd like to have an app (or a setting) that enables me to automatically hide any apps that I switch out of. Are there any apps or hidden settings within OS X out there that would solve this issue for me? I know about Spirited Away, but it doesn't work for me and hasn't been updated in a while.

I'm running OS X v10.6.1.

IMac :: Lost My Apps Folder On Dock But Apps Are There?

Dec 18, 2009

I have a new 21.5" iMac and have been playing around with everything. When I started two weeks ago I had an Apps folder with the Apps logo on the dock to the right of the dotted separation. All the applications are there lined up with the first application showing but for my consternation I cannot put the Applications in there folder like it was when I started out two weeks ago. This is the Snow Leopard OS.

OS X :: Apps Installed Via MacPort Conflict With Builtin Apps?

Feb 28, 2010

For some reason I have to install some applications via MacPort, such like ImageMagick, however, I saw other applications(e.g. vi, vim, etc) also available via macport, there are already built-in programs like vi, if I install something via macport which are already built-in, will there be any problem or the newer ones just overwrite old ones?

ITunes :: Transfer New Apps From Iphone Without Replacing Apps Don't Want?

May 10, 2012

When you sync your iPhone you sometimes get the following message: 

Itunes has found purchased items on the iphone thats arenot present in your itunes library. 

There are two reasons for this:

1. I have deleted apps in iTunes that I don't want, but not on the iPhone. I don't want to transfer the apps back to iTunes because I want them gone.

2. I have bought apps on the iPhone that I do want to keep. I want these transferred to iTunes. 

So if I have both types 1 and 2 then there is no good answer. Preferably iTunes should offer to sync and choose which apps to transfer and what not to transfer. Is there a way to change this behaviour? By the time I sync I don't know what I've done so I'm usually not sure how to answer the question. Sometimes I like to bulk delete apps in iTunes--it is easier than doing it on the iPhone.

Power Mac G5 :: Computer Won't Wake Up

Oct 25, 2007

If I'm away from my computer for awhile, it goes to sleep and won't wake up. Hitting Return or other keys won't help; nor does pushing the Start button on the back. The only solution I've found is to unplug the computer, re-plug, then start again.

Mac Pro :: Mac Pro Black Screen On Wake-up

Nov 25, 2010

Just got a new Mac pro and installed an SSD as the boot drive. I was downloading some apple software updates and left the machine alone to download for an hour.Came back and it was asleep or hibernating (is there a difference?)At that point I clicked the mouse and I could hear it start back up but NOTHING came on the screen, just black.I could press a key on the keyboard and hear the error type noise so the desktop was active, just not being displayed.

I disconnected my mini display port (I have a 24' Apple cinema LED display) and plugged it into the second mini display port on the back and it came back on.Anyone know what this could be?A result of an SSD boot drive or do I need my LED display plugging into a particular mini display port out of the 2 on the graphics card?

Mac Pro :: Locking Up After Wake From Sleep?

Jan 6, 2011

My Mac Pro 1,1 with a recently installed 120 GB OWC SSD Rev. 343A has been locking up (spinning beach ball) mostly on the "Enter your Password" screen when waking up from full sleep or displays going to sleep. I have to perform a hard reboot then it works fine, til it falls asleep and I have to wake it up. If I put it to sleep via the Menu it wakes up normally without issue. I've run Disk Utility, says it's fine. Repaired permissions. Ran the daily, weekly and monthly scripts. Cleaned my Cache with Onyx (not sure what else I could do with it)

Disksomnia is installed for FCP, to keep the disks spinning, never was a problem before. The SSD is the only major change in recent times.

Any knowledge or thoughts as to what I could do to find the problem?

Computer's up to date OS wise, 10.6.5, 12 GB Ram, Seagate 750's HDD's in the three other bays, Blackmagic card PCI, eSATA extender cable for two OWC Enclosures, other FW800 external HD's, NVIDIA Geforce 8600 GT & 7300 GT video cards for three monitors.

Having some trouble with my iMac (the version right before the intel iMacs came out. further info can be provided if needed). Running all the latest software updates etc. When I put the iMac to sleep, it goes off as normal. With the usual white light. However, when coming to wake the iMac it won't respond to the keyboard or mouse. I have to shut it down at the power button, and then turn it back on.

MacBook Pro :: Won't Wake Out Of Sleep?

Jul 11, 2007

I put my 3 day old MBP to sleep last night with a 90% battery level (with the A/C adapter unplugged). I had calibrated the battery the day before. This morning, when I opened the lid, nothing happened. I thought this was odd. I then pressed the power button and heard about 1 second of the startup tone and then nothing. I repeated this twice more with the same result. I then plugged in the A/C adapter and the MBP booted up. The battery level was 86%. What do you think has caused this? Do I have a defective battery or something more serious?

MacBook :: Won't Wake From Sleep

Feb 3, 2009

However, twice now when I've run the battery down (as recommended to keep the battery healthy), and then put it to sleep and plug it in, when I try to wake it up later, it won't start. Powering on and off just lead to a little "click-whirr" and the power light pops on and off, but no action. I called applecare and they said to unplug it, take the battery out, leave it out for a bit, then put it back in, then plug it back in, and restart it. It worked (although the second such crash, it took two tries for unclear reasons). Needless to say, this is a bit frustrating. Is this a known problem? Should I do something to avoid it? Is it a lemon?

MacBook Pro :: How To Prevent Wake On USB

Mar 5, 2009

I would like to connect one of those Master/Slave Powersplitters to my Macbook Pro when I'm at home.

However, this has given me an issue.

When I choose Sleep, the Macbook goes to sleep, and a few seconds after the the splitter will turn off my screen, speakers, Printer and all other accesories.

But as soon as this happens, The Mac wakes up again.

For simplicity at home I have one USB connected to the mac, that goes to the built in USB hub of the screen.
I tried to disconnect everything from the hub leaving only the hub connected.

Mac Pro :: Cyberpower UPS Won't Wake Sleeping?

Mar 10, 2009

Mac Pro: 2 x 2.66

UPS: CYBER POWER CP1500LCD, USB plugged directly into MP, using OS X Energy Saver prefpane (no 3rd party programs)

Everything is fine when the MP is awake and running normally.

But if I sleep it, then kill power to the circuit the UPS is on, it won't wake up. If I unplug and replug the USB cable, it causes the MP to wake and the warning about power failure pops up.

Any ideas? It's not a crisis as the MP will sleep on battery for quite a while... but I'd still prefer it to wake and shutdown gracefully.
