OS X :: Programs Still Download If Computer In Sleep?
Apr 14, 2009
I went into system preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > Screen Saver. And then I changed the "Start Screen Saver" option to never, but it said for the others after 10min " Your computer will sleep before your screen saver activates. So will my computer stop downloading a file from the internet if i just leave my computer on over night? How do i change my signature?
I have a macbook pro 13" early 2011 and I'm se as shown in the pictures (since i upgraded to os x yosemite) . It happens after display sleep or computer sleep on login not on boot up .I've noticed that i run out of ram when the problem appears (only 15MB RAM available out of 4GB), though i doesn't happen every time . I've talked to service and told me its either motherboard replacement or because the ram isn't enough (gpu shares with main ram) so maybe i should try upgrading ram. URL....
I have torrents going all the time. If the computer goes to sleep, the internet disconnects, so they stop. Display sleep wouldn't disconnect though. Is it OK to have computer sleep on "never" but keep display on "15 minutes"? I don't usually even leave the computer on overnight.
I have a late 2008 uMB running Snow Leopard 10.6.2 and every time I wake my computer up from sleep, 3 or 4 of my open applications will crash. This has been happening since a few weeks after I installed Snow Leopard. This always happens with firefox, netnewswire, tweetie, and sometimes iTunes. There are also a few other programs that do this intermittently. This becomes very annoying because 4 crash report windows will pop up, and I will lose all my open tabs and anything I was doing with those programs.
Noticed today the display on my MBP won't sleep; this is what I've done/tried thus far:- Gone though my programs and none of them seem to be the culprit. - Quitting every app and leaving the computer idle with nothing running, display still doesn't sleep. - Double checked system preferences and made sure nothings conflicting. - Also of note, the screen saver will trigger and work fine.- Permissions repair did nothin
i just bought a mac for the first time and i have been trying to download programs from the internet such as msn live. Each time it finishes downloading the program i go to open the file and it gives me this incripted message and i have been trying to figure out why and i have no idea since this is the first time i have used a mac.
2010 iMac running 10.9.4. Lately certain programs are forced to close on a regular basis. This includes Safari, Mail, Crashplan. It usually happens when the computer is sleeping. When I wake up the computer first thing in the morning, I usually have 3 - 4 messages saying that certain programs were forced to restart. This can also sometimes occur when the computer is not sleeping, but when I am using it. Typically it's Safari that is forced to restart.
Recently upgraded RAM and added Crashplan software for data backup.
I just picked up my new 13 inch 2.26 GHz macbook today and am really happy. But i have a few basic questions and all since i am a new mac user coming from a pc. 1- I have a 500GB western digital elite harddrive that i used to back up all the data from my pc. Now some of these files are over 8GB large. I am confused as to how i can transfer over files. I have heard about different file formats but i am very confused by each. I would love if the hardrive could be used for both mac and pc tho. Does anyone have any insight to this. 2- Are there any free programs i should download. I already have coconut battery, adium, istat pro and iwork.
I have bought the new Macbook Pro and I want to move my programs from my old mac to my new one. How do I do this without damaging the files? Do I have to include a lot of trash files or can I just move the .app file over? I?m using Logic, can you move project files only without moving the program?
When I start my iMac, a few programs start along with the computer. I don't want any programs starting by default. I have reviewed the Preferences of these programs, and see nothing to uncheck regarding auto startup. And I don't see anything related to this in System Preferences. How I can start the computer without programs starting with it?
I've been trying to find out how to access google talk/msn/aim on my office computer that has those main websites blocked including [URL]Anybody else have any good suggestions that will allow me to bypass and is pretty secure?
I recently loaded Lion on my Imac. I have listed two programs for automatic log-on. But 3 other apps automatically log-on as well (Firefox, Mail, Word), even though they are not on the auto log-on list at all. How do I preven them from logging on when I start the computer?
Just upgraded to a macbook pro and every time i turn on the laptop about four or five programs open. how do i stop this from happening? I have looked in the system preferences and have not been able to find anything?
For some odd reason, when I try to put my Mac to sleep, it decides to dim the screen and show me that "You need to restart your computer" message in 8 languages. I usually keep my Mac on sleep when I am gone.
Could someone please explain to me why my computer is shutting down in sleep-mode. In addition, when it happens, the fan goes into hyperblow, which doesn't make sense because it would not be operating if the system were completely shut down. It acts like it is shut down but won't respond or wake up, etc. I re-loaded my system software per the Mac Store Genius' advice, but that didn't work. Is it possible that my power supply is going?
I have an APC Back-UPS XS 1500 that I'm using for my Mac Pro. I had some issues with it beeping at me all the time, which has stopped. But now it's causing sleep problems with my computer. When the Data Port is connected to USB, the computer won't sleep. I unplug it and it sleeps just fine.
My macbook, 3 years of age, always turns on whenever I put it into sleep mode. It gets REALLY annoying. So I close the lid, and a few seconds later, you hear the macbook turn on, then a few seconds later, it goes back to sleep mode. This happens endlessly and it gets really annoying.
When my computer goes to sleep it will not wake up, and I have to shut down using the power button on the back and then restart. I called support and they advised me that this only happened when the computer went to sleep on it's opwn but not when you manually put it to sleep, But that proved not to be true. It will not wake up under either situation? The support persontold me to logonto applke and re-install the sytem software which I have done but that did not cure the problem either. I have my preference set to never sleep. I am ar]t a loss as to what to do now as when it goes to sleep or I put it to sleep i sometimes will not start up even after shutting down and restarting.I am on 10.7.2?
I've got a dual G5 running Panther and I put it to sleep when I go to work in the morning. Last night, I wanted to try out Tiger (yes, I know - I'm way behind the times) so I installed it on a FireWire drive and booted off it for a couple of hours to see how things worked. I then went back to my internal Panther drive, and everything is ok except for one thing: when I hit "sleep", it goes to sleep, the screens turn off, and then for some reason I immediately hear the internal drives spin back up and the thing turns on again! Why can't it stay asleep?
