OS X Yosemite :: Stop Apps From Reopening On Restart?

Dec 2, 2014

Here's the problem: Let's say I have Chrome w/ three tabs and Pages open on my Mac Mini. If I go to the Apple Menu and restart, when the computer restarts I want to see nothing other than my desktop. However, regardless of whether "Close windows when quitting an app" in System Preferences > General is checked, the apps (and their respective tabs/windows/documents) pop up, too. 

App state persistence, reopening apps on start, resume — whatever it's called, I want to disable it. It's super annoying. As mentioned, I tried the checkbox in System Preferences (checked and unchecked), and cannot find anything else that even refers to this. Happens on my Late 2012 Mac Mini and Late 2012 13" MacBook Pro.

OS X Yosemite :: Closed Windows / Docs / Apps Reopening

Dec 7, 2014

where no matter if I close a window or document, windows/docs which had previously been open relaunch if I relaunch the app. For instance, I launch Safari and go to the following three sites: URL... I subsequently close blue.com and the later close safari completely. Upon re-launching Safari, I would expect red and white to reopen (the two sites that were open when I closed the program), however red. white AND blue reopen. 

this was just an example, in reality when this again just happened a few minutes minutes ago, Safari relaunched 27 websites in 4 different windows, even though I had specifically closed all sites/windows and quit out of Safari before re-launching. 

Similarly, upon restarts, the OS not only re-launches apps and windows I had open at the time I requested the restart but many documents, windows and applications that were CLOSED at the time I restarted the computer. When I close something, that seems like a clear indication that I am done with it and don't need it open. OS seems to feel differently.

IMac :: Stop Responding - Need To Restart After Unplug

Dec 10, 2010

I have found the past 4 weeks that my iMac will not respond to any mouse movement, keyboard, trackpad or pushing the power button every 5 days or so. I must unplug from the wall, replug into wall then push power button, then it boots up. I have had iMac for 9 months and has always just went to sleep and when I move mouse awakens. After I must unplug, it works correctly again for 5 to 6 days then must be unplugged again. Anyone know why this is happening as I do not believe any settings have been changed and I am the only user of this iMac.

OS X :: Applications Randomly Stop To Respond - Need To Restart

May 31, 2010

I have a macbook pro with Mac OS X 10.5.8 with a 2.26 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Recently I've been having a problem with my computer when applications would randomly stop to respond for a few seconds, until after a while they wouldn't start again and I'd have to restart it. I don't know what to do. I'm a fairly new Apple user.

MacBook Pro :: Do Apps Restart After Launch

Feb 18, 2010

My computer died and I had ship it to apple. I was in firefox at the time that it died. Will firefox spring back open and load those same pages up again for those techs upon STARTUP??

First the techs will have to fix it. Secondly I'm not sure if the sudden termination (aka death of the computer) will count as a "crash" or not.

I know sometimes my computer would shut down for no reason, then I would have to MANUALLY relaunch firefox. When it simply crashes it usually does relaunch automatic (throwing up all those pages u were just on) though, right?

I was on some private social sites and last time I had to turn some hardware in my passwords mysteriously changed also, I got a mobile notice. Although that had nothing to do with apple I need to know if firefox would startup on its own or not so I can change my passwords in advance.

OS X :: 10.5.7 - Machine Slow To Restart And Apps Not Opening

Aug 10, 2010

I am having a bit of an issue with my 13 MBP. With absolutely no rhyme or reason as to frequency, I have been having issues where all of a sudden:
I can't create folders on the desktop (Error code -50)
iTunes won't open (error code 13014)
Spotlight won't search (returns dictionary definitions)
Firefox won't open (A copy is already running...)
Thunderbird won't open (A copy is already running...)
and probably other problems I can't recall right off.

The machine is slow to restart when I do; one time I couldn't get past the gray screen for an hour. Once it gets through a restart however everything is fine for some amount of time before the problem happens again. I have received two kernel panics in the past week. Both came off the back of waking the laptop from sleep. As far as I can tell (or remember), I haven't installed anything that would cause the system to go nuts. I have TM backups, would prefer to use one of those versus a complete wipe as I have Parallels installed and don't want to have to redo that, plus Windows, plus all my Windows programs, etc. I do have a lost+found and Damaged Files folders in my Macintosh HD directory. Not sure where they came from, can't really determine by looking. More info, when I try to save something from online, it says there is not enough disk space. Also, it appears as though dmg's will not mount.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Shut Off Automatic Apps On Restart

Applications :: How To Stop Firefox To Open Previous Sites On Restart

Dec 12, 2010

This is my biggest software design pet peeves. I hate when applications make too many choices for the user. Don't get me wrong, I don't like when a program asks the same question over and over again either. So I'm using firefox and I had about four or five windows open. And it froze up for over five minutes so I force killed it. When I opened it again it automatically tried to open all those websites I had open before - all at the same time. This isn't even a bug, it's the designers bad choice. I don't even need them open. I was only still using one. And I don't know which one caused the freeze (probably a flash heavy website like abercrombie) but I certainly don't want to open that one again. I'm trying to get Firefox to not do this anymore.

MacBook Pro :: Yosemite Freezes And Restart OS?

Dec 5, 2014

Before two weeks I have done a clean install of OS Yosemite in my MBP retina. 

But unfortunately I have noticed some bugs such as: 

- When I press Shut down the dock stays the half freezed, not completely disappeared and then the system shut down.

- Its a grey screen when I switch on from sleep

- It has completely freezed 3 times and restarts itself

- The wifi signal has been lost 2 times, in my home using my router wlan.

- The continuity doesn't work with my iPhone 6+.

- I don't know but I think that Mavericks were faster.. 

I have done PRAM and SMC reset but nothing.

MacBook Pro :: Battery & GPU / How Can Stop Apps Ones Not Using

Jun 18, 2010

1. I have the newest 15'' MBP i5 (mid range model). I have only had my MBP for 2 months and have done the monthly cycle religiously for my battery. Now, I am not stupid and I realize overtime, the life of my battery will continuously decrease but currently my charge is only at 95%. I use Coconut battery, and it seems every time I take my MBP of the charger it goes down by 1%. Can anyone help explain this for me? Is my charger defective?

Also, I use the GPU info app for my MBP and it is always showing that I am using the NVIDIA GPU when Im not using any intensive programs, only Chrome. Why would this be? Are there programs running in the background that I cannot see? And if so, how can I stop or delete the ones I dont use.

OS X Yosemite :: Applications Restart Automatically After Crash

Dec 3, 2014

Whenever my iMac crashes (and that's been happening a little too frequently since I installed Yosemite) and I have to either restart or force-restart, every application that was open at the time automatically restarts as well. I guess some people might value this but, call me crazy, I don't. I usually have Chrome running with 3 or four windows and multiple tabs open; Mail with multiple windows open with emails I need to address; and any number of apps including Lightroom that is so processor intensive causing the startup to take a very long time. Not only that, but I use multiple desktops and when this happens EVERYTHING opens in the same desktop creating a miserable time-suck separating everything. 

Is there any way to prevent this? I just want the computer to relaunch and then open whatever app I want when and where I want. Is that so wrong?

OS X Yosemite :: IMac Keeps Freezing / Needing A Restart

Dec 4, 2014

My 2011 21.5 inch iMac keeps freezing.  Strangely, the trackpad works but nothing on the screen reacts to moving the cursor around or clicking anywhere. requiring a restart (using the power button on the back).   

When I then restart, I get an immediate error message saying "A graphics problem has been detected" and enables me to report the problem, which I do. 

However, this happens several times a day and only since an upgrade to Yosemite and I have tried a software update.

OS X Mavericks :: Quit Out Of All Running Apps Before Doing Shutdown Will Restart On Boot

Jun 26, 2014

I am running Mavericks 10.9.3.

I always quit out of all apps before doing a shutdown.  I make sure that nothing, except Finder, is running when i shutdown.  And, I do a full shutdown, not just sleep.   

Yet, occasionally, the apps that were running before I quit out of them will restart when I turn the MacBook back on.

ITunes :: Stop Apps Downloading Into Folder?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Stop Dock From Rearranging The Apps By Itself?

May 3, 2012

I just received my iMac from FedEx today and got it all set up, but whenever I try to rearrange the icons on my dock, about 5-10 seconds later they just rearrange themselves randomly or sometimes go back to their previous location before I moved them myself. 

I never had these problems with Snow Leopard on my last mac I found a suggestion to go to ~Library/Preferences and delete 'com.apple.preferences.plist' but I couldn't find it in that folder or anywhere on my local HD for that matter.

OS X Yosemite :: Force FileVault To Stop?

Dec 4, 2014

I've got a MacBookPro that's a couple of years old, but hasn't had any problems before - and then I updated to Yosemite. Since then it's been sluggish, stuttering and with a spinning rainbow wheel every five or ten seconds. It's got to the point where it's unusable - you click, you wait, then wait, then it reacts. Sloooow.  

It's a 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 model, purchased in Summer 2012. 4GB of memory - and I've deleted everything off it, all my files and any third party programmes have gone now. On a 500GB hard disk, there's 468GB free now. It's practically got bats flying around in there it's so empty. 

Apple suggested a PRAM restart, then an erase & install, which I've done a couple of times. No dice. Then I saw that FileVault is running, trying to encrypt everything on the computer. It's stalled at around 20% or so, and hasn't changed for days. You can't switch off FileVault while it's encrypting, so I'm pretty stuck at the moment; I can't leave it running because it renders the computer unusable, and reinstalling won't stop FileVault either.  

how to switch off FileVault while it's running, and how to disable it in future?

OS X :: Snow Leopard Slow Restart / Shutdown If Lots Of Apps Are Open

Oct 15, 2009

this isn't a big deal but I've found that when I shutdown or restart with a few applications (even longer if there are a lot open), it sort of just waits (showing me the spinning wheel of eternity - SWOE lolz) after every application is closed (which is almost instant) at the desktop, I can only see my background picture, sometimes it does this at the blue screen occasionally, does anyone know why.

It can wait for up to 20 or 30 seconds, this is on my sig rig w/ the SSD - so I find it a bit odd.
