OS X :: Macbook Pro Locking Up When Navigating?


I have a 1yr old Macbook Pro running OSX Leopard 10.5.7 and it locks up on me 2-3 times a day. This happens when I am navagating through Entourage, browsing the web or really any program - it just does not matter. It seems that I will type a sentence, type in the search bar ect... then hit "go" and the pinwheel shows up and never goes away Hence lockup - the only way to move along is a hard reset - it wont even let force quit. I have noticed this problem getting progressively worse as the months go by.

I use this for work daily but not doing anything extrodinary - mainly spreadsheets, word, and powerpoint, entourge thats it!.

MacBook Pro :: Freezing And Locking Up?
I have had my new MBP (2.4ghz, 2g ram) since the first week of December, and about two weeks after that I started having my lockup and freezing issues. Typically it locks up whenever I am using the "Higher Performance" card, but it has also locked up using the "Better battery life" card as well. The lockups generally happen when I am playing WoW. The fans don't appear to ramp up when the temperature gets hot.

On the "Higher Performance" card it has locked up at temps of only 64 degrees celsius though. It has even locked up on this card when I was just browsing the internet. I have installed smcFanControl and have messed around with different fan speeds, but it I feel that this shouldn't be necessary for a machine that I have paid nearly $2000 on. Also, sometimes it just plain freezes and the sound skips, and other times it brings up the screen with different languages telling me to reset the computer. I also want to make it clear that these lockups are happening while I am playing WoW; except for that one time when I was browsing the internet and it froze.

Anyways, I am completely new to Macs, so I was wondering what I should do. I do not live near an Apple store, so the option of taking it in to a Genius doesn't work for me. Anyone out there know what I should do?

MacBook Pro :: Has Been Locking Up Like Crazy?
I couldn't find a sufficient answer for this by searching. I have the 15" Mid Summer 2009 MBP. 2.8ghz with the 512mb graphics card, 4gb ram etc etc. For the past few months, it has been locking up like crazy. Sometimes once a day, today, it locked up constantly for the last half hour. I've been keeping activity monitor on, and usually its Firefox, which shoots up to 100% cpu sometimes, but it's not just Firefox. Adium does it too, as well as some other programs. Usually, if I wait about 30 seconds, it goes away on it's own. It's happened while I've been doing nothing but in the middle of a YouTube video as well. This happened when I had Leopard, and has continued since I upgraded to Snow Leopard. This is getting unbearable. My machine is totally fast and never lags except when it gets these complete lock-ups. I have no idea what's causing this.

MacBook Pro :: I5 Keeps Hanging And Locking Up
I bought a new i5 MacBook Pro a month or two back and I've been very disappointed to find that it keeps locking up for a couple seconds while doing trivial things. Even now, writing this post, there are times when I start typing and the computer doesn't catch up until I'm a word or two ahead. The same thing happens in TextEdit, which seems like just about the simplest app there is. And it's not specific to typing, like a bug with the spell checking service or something. It affects everything - playing video games, playing videos, running Windows in VirtualBox, playing music in iTunes, etc.

I've seen posts about this online but Some posts suggest it could be a bad drive but the problem happened with the original 320 GB HDD and the 500 GB one I replaced it with. And changing the energy settings to not put the drive to sleep didn't help either. Memory usage looks good too - I have 4 GB of RAM and I'm not running low. Some people think these slowdowns might be related to file indexing for Spotlight, which you can disable wit a little bit of work, but I don't think I should have to disable indexing get a brand new, fast computer to work acceptably.

OS X :: Windows Locking Up MacBook Pro?
I'm running a 2.0 GHz Core Duo MacBook Pro with 1GB of RAM running Mac OS X 10.6.4.

Whenever I try to open the Help window my computer locks up, occasionally requiring a hard restart. It doesn't just lock up the help app, the entire system locks up and I can't do anything, if I'm listening to iTunes even the music stops playing.

I've tried repairing permissions, checking the drive (which came out as ok), and reinstalling the OS.

MacBook Pro :: Fallout 3 Keeps Locking Up?
I just got this game the other day via steam and I've finally found an internet connection good enough to download it on. So it finished downloading today so i decided to play it. Im running windows vista via boot camp on a 17 inch macbook pro with 4gb of ram intel 2 duo core 3.06ghz processor and a 96000m nvidia geforce graphics card. Everything was running fine from when i was born to my birthday to the goat test and then all of a sudden, when it was time for me to leave the vault, it would lock up on me. It locked up on me once and i thought that was just a random occurence and that it wouldn't happen again. It didn't for a while but once I came to the part where the overseer was interrogating his daughter it was guarateed to lock up at any time during that period. When i mean lock up i mean the game would behave as if there is no keyboard or mouse. I can't move the mouse, I can't type anything. What I am able to do is alt tab out of the game. When i try to restore the window of the game after i alt tab it, the bar (I forget what its called) that is on the top of every window with the close restore maximize buttons, would come up but that would be it. The task manager says that the program is responding, but I would have the end the task because I can't get any further. I don't have any other problems with games that i have downloaded on steam such as left 4 dead and I don't have any problems with games that I've installed through a cd like republic commando. This is the first and only game that does this. I know there are alot of people with freezing problems but none of them seem to fit my case especially since im running windows on a macbook.

MacBook Pro :: Machine Keeps Locking Up / Freezing
My MacBook keeps locking up, necessitating me to reboot it several times a day. My brother told me to keep Activity Monitor open to see what was going on when my laptop started to freeze. There is a process called open, shown as belonging to my user account, that keeps turning red and being labeled "not responding." I kill the process, but each time I do, it reappears, and quickly turns red and gets the "not responding" label.

MacBook Pro :: Mouse Dragging And Locking On Everything
So I have been having an issue with my MBP 13" since I bought it, about a month now. At first the guy at Bes@ Bu@ attributed it to the fact that I was pressing too hard on the trackpad and sent me on my way. Two weeks later and the same issue is still happening. So I return to the store and they take the drag lock off, which I have tried before and I tell them this is not the problem-I am not an idiot-I actually know a little about computers. Oh well so here it is another two weeks and the same issue is still going. What do I do? A little background-I need a computer to be able to work on-this is not an option.

Best Buy said that if there is something truly wrong with the trackpad then they will have to send it off to "somewhere" and it could be gone for 10-14 days. That is just unacceptable. Is anybody familiar with their "Black Tie" protection plan? would it be easier/better just to run the thing over with my truck? instead of dealing with the headaches of shipping it somewhere? Basically it seems like the mouse is dragging and locking on everything it can. I have to hold and move, or double hold and move, its hard to explain, but there is definitely an issue. But since I mainly work nights, its hard to bring it up to BB when there is an issue.

MacBook Pro :: Locking The Screen Size From Being Changed By The Touch Pad?
About 20-30 times a day while on Safari using the internet My screen size changes while inadvertently swiping the touch pad. I have to use the command +- keys to put it back to the correct size constantly. What's the trick to locking the screen size from being changed by the touch pad?

This is really making me crazy while I'm trying to work on a site and the font shrinks or grows to minimum or maximum.

MacBook Pro :: Locking Up When Reattaching USB Hub AND External Monitor?
I've been using this same MBP for months with no problems doing the following 2-3 times per day:When reconnecting my MBP to a USB hub and external monitor, the computer locks up. The definition of locking up is that only my trackpad works to move the mouse around but every is unresponsive. The only way out is to hold the power button down to shut it down and reboot.

Connected to the USB hub is:
Logitech Wave keyboard - actually the transceiver is connected (new)
Logitech MX Revolution mouse - transceiver
Logitech camera
Brother QL-570 label printer
Fujitsu ScanSnap S500M scanner

I've since noticed the following when this happens.

1) I plug the USB hub in. The attached peripherals are unresponsive yet the entire laptop works fine using the laptop keyboard and trackpad.
2) I unplug the USB hub and plug it into a different USB port on the MBP. Everything works fine except I get a message that says "only one Fujitsu ScanSnap Scanner can be plugged in at a time".
3) I then plug in the external monitor and now everything is locked up (trackpad on the MBP works but nothing is responsive to clicks or keyboard presses).
4) I have to hold down the power button to shut down and restart.Any ideas on what could be wrong or how to troubleshoot?My laptop is: MBP 2.66ghz with 8gb RAM running 10.6.2.

OS X Leopard :: Navigating The Sidebar?
when I'm working in an application and presented with an open dialog box or a save/save as dialog box. If I select a folder in the sidebar to, for example, save a file, It won't immediately switch to that folder, I have to select another folder in my sidebar then click the first folder again before the dialog box will switch and display the contents of that folder. Is this normal behavior, or is there someway I can make leopard show the contents of the folder immediately, when I click the sidebar icon?

OS X :: Navigating To Different Windows Of Same Application
Please educate me if there is an elegant way of accomplishing this simple and common task from a long-time Windows user. Let's say I have Thunderbird or Mail open, and I start writing a new message on a new message window. Then momentarily I click behind it to the inbox to check something; say, to find another address I need. Now, the New Message window has become buried under the Inbox window, and since it's smaller than the Inbox, I can't click on it to bring it back forward (unless, of course, some edge of it is sticking out from under the inbox). If I was on windows, I'd just click on the New Message window's tile. The dock doesn't distinguish between different windows of the same program.

Using Expose is cool, except it takes me several keystrokes or a keystroke plus the mouse to find what I'm looking for (plus F9 isn't as easy to reach as ALT-Tab, IMO), especially if I've got a lot of windows open. I like in Windows being able to visually scan all of the windows that exist without having to move the mouse, and then only need one mouse click to get to that window. Perhaps there's a way to flip through the different windows in your current app? That would make things simpler and more elegant, but I certainly don't know how to do that. I'd love to hear your tips to make this transition go smoother! Alright, F10 does that, I just remembered! Also regarding Expose, if I've got several textedit windows open and they're all zoomed out (but with different file names), there's no way for me to identify them without first hovering over them to see their file names.

Laptops :: Navigating Single User Mode?
I need some help copying files from the desktop of my old iBook G4 1.33ghz laptop to another USB or Firewire drive. The drive recently gave out and I need to recover files. I've tried safe boot, fsck -fy, diskutil repairPermissions... nothing seems to work I just get I/O errors. DiskWarrior gets pretty far but freezes on overlapping files in step 6. Techtool Pro struggles on the drive related functions as well and freezes. I've also tried the fsck_hfs invalid sibling fix as well. Not sure if this drive is salvageable at all but I can get into single user mode and cd Users/username/Desktop and then ls Desktop and see all the Desktop files 2 screens worth (how do I scroll up in SUM?) and can actually navigate the directory listings fairly well, everything appears to be there... so I was hoping there'd be a way I could just copy all the Desktop files to something else but I am not fluent in unix and need help. The drive name is disk0s3... ideas?

OS X :: Strange Behavior When Navigating Terminal History
When I look through my bash history (by pressing up), occasionally the first 3 or 4 characters of a command will stay and push everything else forward. For example, suppose my last few commands were:

vi .bashrc
ls | grep D
cal

And then I was trying to edit .bashrc again. After hitting up three times my prompt would say:

$ ls |vi.bashrc

The command would still work as intended but seeing this is very strange and often confusing at first. I searched around and couldn't really find anyone else reporting this issue and was at least wondering if anyone knew how this could happen. I have a modified prompt, if that could cause it.......................

OS X Leopard :: Navigating Between External And Internal Hard Drive?
I have recently cloned my hard drive to an external hard drive. I then deleted a lot of stuff off my hard drive because it was almost full. When I am at home I usually boot up from the external hard drive. I am using a MacBook. I was told by a very helpful person on here that after the cloning I could drag and drop files between the 2 drives. But I am having a horrible time navigating between the 2 drives and insuring that my stuff is actually where I want it to be. The things I am particularly concerned with are iTunes files, photos, iCal events and mail. I just thought I imported a bunch of iCal events from the hard drive to the external but then when I went and looked I didn't. I have had SOME success with music files. I have no clue how to move mail pack and forth. I'm scared to even touch my photos!

Safari :: Can't Stay Logged Into Sites After Navigating Away
I have a Macbook Pro(2009) with Safari Version 5.1.2 and I can't stay logged into websites. For example.... If I'm logged into facebook, I then navigate to google and then back to facebook, I will then be logged out. Now before you say it, yes, I check the keep me logged in buttons on sites and this is not even close to being exclusive to facebook, just merely an example. This also occurs if I stay on the web page I'm signed in on then open up, lets say, itunes. When I then go back to the webpage, I'm signed out again. This is rediculously frustrating. It makes safari completely unusable with any application or with multiple webpages. I usually love safari and never wanted to switch to any other browser but I don't think I can hold out much longer with this.

Safari :: Screen Suddenly Zooms In To Huge Size While Navigating
I am using a wireless mouse on my intel iMac, and when I am using Safari, and no other program, when I am navigating, the screen will suddenly zoom in and get huge. I don't think I am doing anything repeatable when this happens. I cannot do anything to zoom back out. So, I need to go back a page and start over at the normal screen size.This is annoying, especially when I have just reached a page I need to see.

IDVD (iLife 09/11) :: Navigating Multiple Movies With Conventional DVD Player Remote
I'm finishing up a wedding DVD for a friend that I built in iMovie as multiple movies (projects) and exported each to the media browser. I'm aware of the option to create one long movie and use markers to create chapters, but I used this method instead. My question is: when I drag each movie over in iDVD using preview, I can click on each movie with the mouse to play them easy enough, but when this gets burned to a DVD and played in any home DVD player, will everyone be able to navigate to these individual movies using their remote controls?

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Spinning Wheel While Navigating Workgroup Manager
Being new to Mac as well as Mac Server, I was not sure what to expect, such as how responsive Workgroup Manager should be. My initial server setup left me with numerous spinning-wheel moments while navigating Workgroup Manager. With enough patience, results eventually would display. But something was awry. After plenty of research and head-banging, I finally arrived at a solution. I surmised that a private zone would limit the potential amount of LDAP activity; so, I moved DNS and Kerberos from my public zone to my private zone. I accomplished this by swapping machine records between the two zones. Also, I had compromised /LDAPv3/127.0.0.1 and had to reinitialize it; so, I don't know if that step was essential towards my performance improvement. Now, the spinning wheel is a rarity with Workgroup Manager.

Mac Pro :: Locking Up After Wake From Sleep?
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.

Mac Pro :: Locking Up - 8 Minute Startup?
In the past couple of weeks I've been having issue with my workstation locking up, the first couple times it only happened when activating expose, I'd have a bunch of apps open(final cut, photoshop, bridge, entourage, +) and it would freeze when I activated expose when all the windows were shrinking.

In the past week though it's been happening out of nowhere, still with final cut and other various apps open but no warning, but now the screens don't freeze they go blank, but the tower doesn't sound like it's powering down or doing anything besides the norm. It almost seems like a video card issue.

However just minutes ago it happened again, screen went blank(thank god my final cut autosaves every 5 minutes). Did a hard restart and logged in but after my desktop picture loaded nothing was happening, spotlight was up in the corner(not the whole menu bar) and mousing over spotlight showed a beachball. Another hard restart and same thing, so I just let it sit for a while and after 7-8 minutes of sitting there with just my desktop image the rest of the os finally loaded. I was getting worried as I have deadlines and one of them is tomorrow. This machine is usually in use monday-friday 9-5.

Specs:
OSX Tiger 10.4.11
quicktime 7.3.1(can't upgrade to 7.4 or 7.4.1 because it causes issues with after affects rendering & were getting a Red cam which the latest quicktimes don't work well with)

320gb storage drive

Running mostly Final Cut studio 2(latest updates) & adobe design premium cs3 and occasionally after effects cs3

Anyone else having this issue or have a solution?

Also our other editor has noticed his station(almost exactly the same but with 8gb ram) has been running a little slower than it should be as of late.

OS X :: After The Screen Saver Starts - MacBook Locking Up?
After the screen saver starts (set to go on after 1 hour), my MacBook locks up 90% of the time when I attempt to wake it up. I sometimes hit the trackpad and sometimes I hit command. It is hit or miss on which one will work.

I have to hold the power button to restart it.

I have it plugged in all the time when it's at home. Under energy saver I have both settings set to go asleep after 2.5 hours.

I have no issues when I close the lid to put it to sleep.

IDVD (iLife 09/11) :: Navigating Buttons Won't Select Menu Items In Correct Order
I have authored my DVD and it works fine except for the menu item selection using my DVD players navigation. When I press the right arrow to scroll across items it will randomly select clips. So getting to the clip you want is a complete crap shoot. Any ideas why this is happening?

More info:

I am using iDVD 7.0.4 and I had selected the "brushed metal 9" theme because it was basic and then I just dragged my own photoshop file right on top of it. Then I just dragged my video files ontop of that as the buttons (i want to use thumbnails from the clips as part of the button and the old themes are the only ones that let me do this!). Everything is working fine except for this very irritating problem with the navigation. Here are 2 screenshots of my iDVD session - perhaps you could see what the problem is?

Final Cut Pro :: Capture Locking Up When FireWire Plugged In
I've been using FCS for awhile now, and can usually figure out most issues on my own, this time I'm stumped. I created a new FCP project and went to import the tape, when I went to Log/Capture and FCP froze during the initializing capture dialogue. At that point I unplugged the camera firewire and FCP unfroze and opened up the capture window. When I'd plug it back in, FCP would lock up.

Logic Studio / Pro :: Baffling - Locking SMPTE Position Of Events Within Region
So I have a project with lots of tempo changes and MIDI notes recorded to it. I now wish to paste those notes into another project with a fixed tempo (120bpm) but preserve the original positions (reflecting the tempo changes) of the notes. I don't need to have a grid or anything for this region, I just want the notes to appear at the same SMPTE positions as the original project but in a fixed tempo project. I hope this is clear...

So, I figured it's simply a case of selecting the original region in the first project, opening the event list and selecting Functions>Lock SMPTE Position. This does indeed bring up the SMPTE lock symbol next to each note (looks promising). So presumably I can simply paste this region into a new project with a fixed tempo and the notes will appear at the same position as the original region... but alas no. The notes are simply locking to the new project tempo and not preserving the original SMPTE position.

MacBook Air :: Intermittent Freezing / Locking Due To Heavy CPU Usage
My Macbook air, with any heavy processor usage (video converting, flash video, etc) very easily went into limp mode. Meaning intermittent freezing and locking. Upon further investigation, I found out one of my processor cores was shutting down, and the other was hitting 100% (according to Activity Monitor). Buy a shareware application called coolbook and install it. This software throttles the processor according to load and temperature. I have not noticed any performance penalty, but my Macbook Air has not frozen once. It also runs a lot cooler and also uses both cores at all times.

OS X Leopard :: TM Locking Up Finder
Most of the time, TM works just fine. But occasionally it will get locked up and keep accessing my drive while making the finder very sluggish. It's normally not a problem when it's preparing. My problems happen when it locks up during a drive write (says X MB of Y MB complete). The only way I can get it unlocked is to turn off the drive. Twice now, it has damaged the volume structure of the drive (no surprise). Any idea what is causing the hang up?

Information:
Al iMac
Mac OS X (10.5.6)
