MacBook Pro :: Press Escape Key To Exit Full Screen

Aug 16, 2010

Whenever I try and watch a full-screen video, like on Engadget, the "Press Escape key to Exit Fullscreen" message never disappears. At first I thought it was Safari (v4.x) so I upgraded to 5.0.1 .. big mistake, saved for another topic, but it still does the same thing. It even happens in Firefox. I have a Spring 2010 MBP.

MacBook Pro :: Screen Is Black Does Not Want To Exit Screen Saver Mode?

Jun 2, 2012

When my MacBook Pro 13" i5 goes into screen saver mode, which is black, it won't return to normal mode. Tried all keys, trac pad, closing the lip and re-opening it,  and it won't respond. The only thing that works is holding down power button for hard shutdown, then restarting it. It has happened 8 times in the last 2 weeks.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To View Full Screen Mode / Second Screen Turns Black

Sep 16, 2009

So I have a DYNEX 21 inch HD TV conected up to my MBP via the VGA connection route. My problem is that when I want a program (or more specifically in this case a game) to go into fullscreen mode it automatically goes to my primary monitor and turns the other screen black. I know I can switch the primary monitor from my actual laptop screen to the TV however I just want the game to be full screen on the TV while still having access to my dock and everything on my laptop.

OS X :: Mac Will Not Exit Sleep Mode...

Dec 29, 2009

As of last night, my MBP started acting very strangely. After entering my username and password, it would enter the desktop for a short period of time and then kick back into sleep mode; the screen would turn back to black. Sometimes it will let me stay on the desktop for a long time and other times it will hardly let me stay on the desktop. I called apple support and they had me start the computer in safe mode; even then it occasionally kicks me out. The tech guy said that it was a "strange software issue" and not a hardware issue. I thought it was a hard drive issue; my hard drive makes an odd sound when it unlocks, but it has been doing that for quite some time with no issues. I tried to reset the SMC and it didn't do anything.

I am running OS X; not leopard or snow leopard. I know I need to upgrade, but this shouldn't be happening.

Safari :: Resume Function Not Working When In Full-sceen Mode

May 1, 2012

If I have Safari open as a window on my desktop, it will generally 'resume' (as in, most of time remember what I had open) after shutting down and booting up again. However, if I have Safari open in full-screen mode (as I prefer to), it never remembers resumes upon shutting down and booting up again; Safari is open (the little light in dock shows up) as if to say OS remembered I had Safari open, but there is no window and upon opening a new window, none of my tabs are restored.

OS X :: Mac Mouse Does Not Go Off In Full Screen Mode

Dec 9, 2008

When I'm watching a full screen video on my computer the mouse doesn't go off the screen and because the border of it is white you can see it at the side of the screen. After a few seconds it does disappear though but if you watch a full screen flash video such as on BBC iPlayer or YouTube, the mouse remains there with that white line sticking out on the side of the screen. Also, if you put the cursor off the bottom of the screen, the dock pops up so unless you disable the dock temporarily and then put it in the bottom right corner (where it only takes up 1 pixel).

ITunes :: Can't Get It Out Of Full Screen Mode

Jul 2, 2012

I have two monitors on an iMac 8 running Lion. I went to full screen mode and the iTunes took over both monitors and covered up all menu options.† I can't get out of full screen mode now. The ESC key does not work.† All I can do is press F4, open another app, and then close iTunes.† But I can't change the mode for the next time it opens. Is there some combination of keys I can type to get control back on my own GD desktop?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Full Screen Mode And Two Monitors

Mar 24, 2012

I consider this an oddity in Lion. I have two monitors. If I have Mail open in the left one and let's say Address book on the right one, and I put Mail into full screen mode, the other monitor goes gray. So no way to have one monitor in full screen mode and still use the second monitor!

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Cannot Take Mail Out Of Full Screen Mode

May 5, 2012

I installed Lion yesterday.  I cannot take Mail window out of full screen mode.  There is no double arrow in the upper right corner.  I hate it being this large.  In fact, I don't like this Mail program at all. Moving the cursor up does not do anything.  No Menu Bar appears.  The only way I can get out of Mail is command Q.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mac Mail 5.3 How To Exit Classic View Mode

May 10, 2012

I wanted to get started quickly so I put Mac Mail into "Classic" mode. Can't remember how but i think i was asked in a modal dialogue if I wanted to. Been through every Menu item and the Help and can't find any refernece to 3 column view except that it exists. I'm finding Lion a bit rough around the edges even though I'm on 10.7.4. The help is cursory like I said no reference to 3-column except how great it is and can't find a manual for Mac Mail at apple.com.

OS X Yosemite :: Title Bar In Full Screen Mode When Using Certain Apps

Dec 2, 2014

When using certain apps in fullscreen hovering the mouse over the top of the screen produces the menu bar, AND a title bar which is interfering with screen real estate. 

How do I remove it? 

The screenshot below is with a youtube video playing in fullscreen, and the menu bar popped down.

The title bar saying "Safari" and with the green button is the one I want removed. This title bar seems to pop down in Java and Flash apps, and it's particularly irritating when the pop-down steals screen real-estate (photoshop, bitwig, Flas-player, etc.). Ideally I would like to stop the menu bar from popping down as well but it doesn't seem possible.
