OS X Lion :: 10.7 Freezes Whenever Screen Saver Activates

Jul 4, 2012

Installed Lion. Upgraded all 30,000 of my photos as per screen prompts. Now unable to use my Mac ANY time screen saver activates. It freezes, hangs, crashes. NEVER had any of these problems with 10.6 and, because I've "upgraded" my entire iPhoto Library (as per screen prompts) I am STUCK with this new OS!!

How can I "de-upgrade" my iPhoto library so I can revert to a system that functions?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Screen Saver Freezes When Waking

Mar 17, 2012

After waking up my computer from sleep I find that the screen saver always locks/freezes and becomes pixelated. I move my mouse around and it sort of "erases" the saver to reveal the login page underneath. This happens on my new iMac (2011) and now is starting to happen on my MacBook Air.

OS X :: Screen Saver Freezes When I Choose My Own Folder?

Jan 25, 2010

Under System Preferences, when I try to choose a pictures folder for a screen saver, I am choosing a folder that has sub-folders with all of my pictures that aren't in iPhoto. Each time, the whole computer freezes up and I have to reboot. Force quit won't even work. I am on a MacBook Pro, using OX 10.6.2 This used to work just fine prior to upgrading to Snow Leopard.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Turn Off Using Photo Library In Screen Saver

Mar 28, 2012

Is there anyway to turn off screen saver (and desktop) in using my photo library (Aperture)?  Currently it is using my entire photo library as screen saver and I wanted to turn it off.  Clicking on the "-" button in the Screen Saver preference pane does not remove Aperture photo library from the list.  I had OS 10.7.3 installed.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why Does Screen Saver Prompt For Secure Disk Image Password

Mar 17, 2012

I go into System Preferences->Dektop & Screen Saver.  As the program "loads" availabe image sources and such I get a pop-up requesting a password to my secure disk image. Yes, I have a secure disk image in my home directory. Yes, the secure disk image is currently "locked" (Not mounted in finder). 

I click cancel (a few times, probably 2 maybe 3 times) and things continue along fine. I select a photo source that I want for a screen save and exit peferences. I then go an start the screen saver (I'm using Hot-Corners). I get the message "Looking for pictures....." for , well...basically forever... 

Sure enough I touch the mouse to leave my screen saver and there is the pop-up again.  Asking for me to unlock my secure disk image. 

I thought this might be related to Spotlight.  I tried reading several threads and have gone as far as taking my entire hard-drive/volume and putting it into the "Privacy" tab under spotlight. 

how I might get it so the "Desktop & Screen Saver" stop prompting me to unlock my secure disk image?  (WITHOUT having to make sure the disk image is unlocked before I sleep my screen or open the screen saver utlity) As always, I am only speculating that this is Spotlight related so that could be a red-herring....

MacBook :: Screen Color Settings Change After Screen Saver?

May 8, 2009

so this has happened twice now in the past month, my mb is in screen saver mode and i wake it up to find that the color is off in the screen. meaning that the color settings changed and the screen has a swashed out blue tint to it. first time i restarted and all was good, second time i clicked on the preferences icon and then the screen went back to its normal setting. my normal setting is not the factory one but one of the ones that people said makes the screen look better.

so what gives, is the integrated chip dieing on me?

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.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Gmail Screen Freezes; Is It Gesture-related

Apr 4, 2012

From time to time, as I am composing a message using Gmail in Safari, the email screen "freezes." I cannot continue to type, copy or paste, or do anything else to manipulate the screen; it is as if the page has become an image. I speculate that this is due to some inadvertant "gesture" on my part, as at other times my Safari screen will sometimes zoom in and out unaccountably, presumably because my track pad senses two fingers pinching instead of scrolling. This latter problem is very annoying, but I attribute it to my own clumsiness. The former problem of the screen freeze is more than annoying, as it requires me to completely redo a sometimes lengthy email. Is there a gesture that causes a screen to be captured as an image?

OS X :: Monitor Wake Up With Screen Saver Image On Screen

Jul 15, 2010

I have a Quad Core Mac Pro running Snow Leopard 10.6.4. I've been having this issue for the past couple of weeks. Basically I have my monitor set to turn off after after 15 minutes of inactivity, my Mac Pro is always on. After 5 minutes of inactivity my screensaver comes on and stays on until my monitor turns off. When I move my mouse to wake my monitor, sometimes an image from the screensaver appears onscreen for a few seconds and then disappears when my desktop appears.

I have repaired Permissions, rebuilt my drive using Disk Warrior, installed the 10.6.4 Combo update but the issue remains. An image from the screensaver doesn't always appear when I turn on my monitor, this issue is sort of random. Usually my desktop appears right away with no static image from the screensaver.

Mar 29, 2012

I have a Early 2008 Mac Pro running Lion.  Its been running well but then last night it froze while I was on the internet.  Pretty rare that this happens so I held the power off button and turned it off.  Turned it back on and it made the chime noise, apple logo came up, a grey spinning wheel came up for about 30 seconds and then it stopped spinning and the computer froze there.   

I tried a bunch of different things.  I tried rebooting in safe mode, Recovery mode, From time machine external hard drive, Tried booting in the Windows partition that I have (its on the same as the boot drive I'm trying to boot in Lion off of).

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Macbook Pro Freezes At Logo Screen, No Safe Nor Recovery Mode?

Jun 5, 2012

my macbook pro today started to freeze at logo scrren. I tried to start it up in both safe and recovery modes but it doesn't work either. I got the system to start in safe mode only once and the scrren looked like in the attached image.When I tried printing the screen instead of taking a photo with my mobile, the image appeared to be normal (without those noisy rectangles), but it wasnt. Then itried restarting but it's been impossible. As i said i tried booting on safe and recovery modes but the circle below the apple logo appèars and then it freezes again. I read about aproblem with the graphic card similar to mine in earlier models, I don`t know if it is the same problem.

OS X :: Screen Saver Not Activating?

Jul 14, 2009

This is really annoying me. What could cause my screen saver to not activate?I've got it set to activate after 3 minutes. I just can't think of a reason why it's not working. I've just reinstalled Leopard (not because of this) and I had the same problem before.I did wonder if the iStat menu's were keeping the screen saver from kicking in (it monitors my CPU and memory uses so is changing constantly) but I tried uninstalling it and it continues to 'diss me'!

Intel Mac :: Cannot Set Screen Saver To 'Never'

Jun 2, 2012

Running OS X Lion on an Intel iMac with 4GB.

When I call up system preferences and set the screen saver to "never" and remove the check next to "Use Random Screen Saver", it doesn't stay that way. I set it, then go back to the system preferences pane, and call it up again, and it's still set. However, once I exit the system preferences, then come back into the screen saver, it's been reset to where the random screen saver is checked again and the screen saver set at 20 minutes.

OS X :: Display Sleep Vs Screen Saver

Aug 25, 2010

So I've bee tinkering with my energy preferences in order to get the best battery life I can, I've turned down the brightness to 1, my keyboard back light, to 1 (when I'm watching a movie in a dark room) and I've set it as the 'better battery' option. But now i'm a bit confused. What's the point in the screensaver if you can set your display to sleep (which i'm sure would save more energy). Is it just to look pretty?
How does everyone have their notebooks set-up to get the most out of their battery? Lastly, the 'better battery' option in energy preferences, does this do anything apart from adjust the display/computer sleep? I read that it reduces processor power hence the 'better performance' option.

OS X :: Setting Screen - Saver As Desktop BG

Oct 15, 2010

So there's this great hidden feature of OS X that allows you to set your screen-saver animation as your desktop background, but it is a Terminal command and it requires Terminal to be running in order to continue executing it. Here it is: Code: System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -background So the million-dollar question is → Does anybody know of a way to keep this running even after you quit Terminal? Yeah I know, it's a waste of CPU cycles and battery power... but my Mac is plenty fast and is a desktop machine so I'm not concerned about that. So how about a Terminal command to made the above Terminal command not require Terminal to be open in order to continue?

OS X :: 10.6.5 - Require Password After Screen Saver?

Nov 17, 2010

I'm in the process of updating our server from 10.4 to 10.6.5. And I've noticed a very disturbing problem. First, I don't need a lecture on enabling the root account. I have a strong password and appropriate security measures in place (both physical and configuration wise), and I understand the risks.

Under 10.4, I was able to set the Security Preferences of the root account to "Require Password Immediately After Screen Saver Begins". Worked just fine and dandy. Under 10.6.5, when logged in as root, this option seems to be ignored. I have run a repair permissions, verify disk and both report no problems. It also seems to ignore the "Log out after XX minutes of inactivity" as well.
