Safari :: MBP Freezing Up - Cannot Move Cursor Around Screen

May 10, 2012

I have a 2009 13 inch MBP with 4G of RAM. Its loaded with the current version of Snow Leopard, version 5.1.5 of Safari and version 4.5 0f the Mail App. The screen of the MBP freezes up 3 - 4 times per day. Ninety percent of the time Safari is open when this happens (some of the time, the Mail App is open as well. The remainder of the time I may have another browser open, but the Mail app is open.†I can move the cursor around the screen and "force quit" any open applications except Mail and Safari when this happens. The icons for Safari and the Mail App in my Dock turn grey if I click on them. Otherwise the spinning pizza wheel shows up. I have to use the power button to turn off and restart the machine.

I have tried resetting the PRAM. I also got a couple of error messages concerning Hazel (v3.1.1) via Growl on one occasion. Simply stated that there was an error when Hazel started to run, checking .docx files for Music and video. (Hazel runs from startup and I have rules set up to remove partial and duplicate downloads and clear all Trash files within a set period). I uninstalled Hazel, but the freezing still occurs.†The apps I have running most of the day are Mail, a browser, Omnifocus, Preview and either Pages or Word in Office for Mac 2011. I back up a couple of times a day using Time Machine and every couple of days update a copy of my hard drive using Carbon Copy Cloner.

MacBook Pro :: Why Won't Track-pad Work Properly And The Cursor Will Move On It's Own

Jun 2, 2012

I bought my Macbook Pro less than a year ago and the other night I was watching a TV show in itunes and I couldn't use the track pad. I was able to finally shut the Macbook down and the next morning I rebooted it. It was still acting weird and the trackpad was jumpy and would randomly start opening windows and menus as if someone was contriolling it remotely. I used my bluetooth mouse and it seemed to work ok until tonight when I was copying some files wirelessly (or trying to) and evey time I tried to select files the cursor would jump to another screen and open a menu and then select all and open all my file folders. I was able to get that to stop openin ght ewindows but I still can't use the track pad and the machine acts like it is possesed and has a mind of it's own. I have made sure file saring and screen sharing are off and the battery shows to be normal from doing the control+battery test.

Windows On Mac :: Virtual Box - Move From 7 Back To Osx And Drag Cursor Down Through Bottom

Dec 3, 2010

I have managed to install virtualbox on my mba 11.6 with win 7 as the guest.

1. The only way I can move from win 7 back to osx is to hold esc and drag the cursor down through the bottom of the win 7 window. Is this how its supposed to work?
2. I have set up a shared folder on osx and set it up on virtualbox but cannot mount it as instructed through the command menu.
3. Virtualbox doesn't recognise my pen drive but osx does.
4. Would it be advantageous to use win 7 lite as I only have 160 hd?

Excuse my asking seemingly simple tasks but I'm struggling with it, and cannot put anything on win 7 until I master it.

OS X Technologies :: It Loads All File In The Folder When Tried Ro Move One

May 29, 2012

I have a folder action set up to open movie files in a conversion app but every time I add a new file it loads all the files in the folder.  How can i exclude a file that has already been opened by the folder action.  I can't move the file due to queing up moves for conversion if the file is moved after it is opened the the program doesn't know where to look for it. Ive tried Filter finder items by last opened and set it as today but that did not work. It opened nothing.  May I could set it up to know if the file has been there longer then 5 min that the folder action should not open it.

OS X Technologies :: Applescript To Cut And Paste First Word Of Numbers Cell

May 19, 2012

I'm creating a Service in Automator, and would like incorporate an Apple script that will "cut" the first word in any Numbers cell that I select, and "paste" it into the cell directly to the left of the the cell I've selected. Let's assume the column I'm selecting from is Column C. As a very rough start, here is what I have (with some of things I'm trying to accomplish in brackets):†on run {input, parameters}†try†set MyText to input as string†set FirstWord to first word of MyText set [remove the first word and a single space from what I've selected]tell application "Numbers"tell table 1 of sheet 1 of document 1†set theRow to [the row of the cell I've selected] set value of cell 3 of theRow to FirstWord end tellend tell†end try return inputend run.

OS X Technologies :: Command Line Editing -- Move Quickly

Jun 21, 2012

Macintosh-HD -> Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal

I'm running bash.

I have a long command line:

/Users/mac/Sites/bithoist/BitHoist-PPC-MacOS-X   -offset 0x0000  /Users/mac/Sites/bithoist/commandLine/bins/aSunbird.bin   -stdout -hex   -r 0x0000,0x002f 

I'd like to move quickly to the last 0 in -offset 0x0000. 

I know about control + a and I found out about esc + f.  I do not find pressing esc then f then esc then f that easy.  I'd like to at least be able to hold down the esc key and press f's. 

Could I redefine a word to only be " " (space) in the terminal?  Not sure I like this idea.

OS X Technologies :: Combine 2 PDF Files Into 1 Using Apple-script?

Jun 22, 2012

I am just starting out with applescript and could do with a pointer please. I have written a script which saves two pdf files from an active Illustrator document in the source folder of that document. The issue I am have now is that I cannot get the two files to combine into a single PDF file. The whole script is quite long and is works apart from the combine PDF part?

tell application "Finder" try open (every document file of container of file_path whose name contains ".pdf")  on error display dialog "no PDF file located"


Both PDF documents open and are set as the variables docRefA and docRefb, but the acrobat command 'bring to front' and 'insert page' do not seem to be working. I get an error come up in an illustrator dialog box saying "Adobe Acrobat Pro got an error: document "84056_R1.pdf" doesn't understand the bring to front message".
