OS X :: Blue Dot Next To Application After Control Clicking
I think I did a control click on an application trying to make an alias following a webtip and now I have a blue dot when the app is highlighted, or if I'm not clicked on the app it shows up highlighted blue. what does this mean and how do I get rid of it? I tried control clicking the item again and it's still there. It's just annoying to look at. Ideas? I googled it, I'm sure it's some Leopard feature but I dunno what it is,

OS X Leopard :: Showing Blue Dot That Engages Expos?
I don't recall this dot ever appearing on any other user desktop, but suddenly yesterday I logged in as root and there it is. It seems to engage Expos (showing windows of whatever application I'm focused on)

It's interesting but I didn't even see an option in the system preferences for it and maybe I'd want to turn it on for my normal user.

ITunes Mac :: Blue Dot Symbol Shows In Movies
I rip DVDs via HandBrake onto my MacBook desktop, and then drag it into my iTunes movie category.

The movies in my iTunes have a blue dot symbol next to each one. Sometimes the blue dots are half blue/half white, while some are all blue. It is obviously an indicator of some type, but of what?

IMac :: Blinking Blue Dot In Gray Square On Startup?
Been on a Mac in one form or another but never saw this. It's not even mentioned on the site under startup problems. Started up on my eMac and got this blinking blue dot that looked a bit like earth in a gray square. Whole think was about an 1" square in the middle of the screen. The startup tone was normal.

I've been having problems with my Dashboard Client unexpectedly quitting. I haven't noticed a real pattern, but this happens when the computer is idle. If I click to open dashboard any of the three ways (dock, keyboard, mouse), it opens fine, but the blue active program dot on the dock is gone. And I keep getting the messages.

Applications :: Changing Dock/Indicator?
Ok, sorry all if this has been asked. I did a search and didn't find an answer that made sense to me.

So basically, I saw the attached image in the January desktop forum, and would love to have the same dock indicator lights. I have the link to download the file(s) for the indicator lights, but after downloading I have no idea how to install them.

I'm running Tiger, and I was wondering does anyone have the app and the skin/theme to make the Dock look like it did in this picture? The picture is from Jobs' keynote of introducing OS X. I just think it would be fun to have it look that way (in tiles with borders).

Applications :: Open Program But Not Appear In Dock?
Is there a way to have a program open at login (I know, I know, select "open at login") but then NOT appear in the dock when it's open? I'd like to have my Garmin software always open but hate the cluttered space of having it open. I can always close it with Cmd+tab. I'm running Leopard 10.5.6.

OS X :: All Applications Bounce In Dock And Fail To Open
Recently, software update stopped responding after I hit the "Install" button, so I had to force quit. Now, none of my applications will open- they just bounce in the dock for a while and stay there, without the dot appearing- including disk utility and system preferences (I thought it might be a repair permissions problem after poking around forums). I do not have install discs with me and plan on going to the apple store tomorrow.

Finder still works, and I emptied the trash, but now clicking on the trash gives me the message that it "cannot be opened while trash is being emptied," which leads me to believe something is frozen. So, my question is: it is safe to turn off or try restarting the computer? Last time I had a problem similar to this and restarted, I got the flashing folder icon that signaled my hard drive was dead, so I am worried about letting it go to sleep or shutting down.

Software :: Can't Open Applications In Dock?
I bought a macbook Pro 17" this August. This afternoon I found I can't open the applications in the dock. When I click an application icon, it doesn't start up, but instead the Application Window with a list of all my applications jumped out. But if I click the application icon in the Application Window, it will start up.

I am willing to start up the applications directly from the dock. Could anybody help me on it?

Another problem with my laptop is, everytime I left click a link in Safari, the link will open in a new tab of the same window. This problem came the same time as the last one.

Snow Leopard :: Open Applications Do Not Show In Dock?
Why don't open applications (except for Finder and iCal) have the little white dot next to them when they're open? I've noticed this since I did the latest software upgrade a few days ago. Also, I get a chime when mail comes in, but no red number indicating unread messages.

OS X :: Applications In Dock Suddenly Missing - Little Ball Showing Open
I have an iBookG4 with Leopard. This morning I may have had too many applications going at once--camera applications plus listening to a talk using RealPlayer. Suddenly everything froze, but I got it all going again. However, now the little balls that appear under an application icon to show that the app. is open are missing. Also, when I click the icon, e.g., for Firefox which I'm using right now, the pop-up menu gives me the option to "Open" it, when, obviously, it's already open. There is no "Close" option in the menu anymore. I AM able to quit applications by clicking their name in the menu bar at the top of the screen. But I'm disturbed that this weirdness has happened. Things I've tried already, without effect:

1. Restarted computer. The computer won't shut down. Everything on my desktop disappears except for the wallpaper and the Dock.

2. Shut down computer (chose "Shut Down" as opposed to "Restart"). Same as #1. Won't shut down.

3. "Force Quit"--clicking on the Apple icon > Force Quit > clicking on the name of the application in the little window. Note: I haven't used Word this morning, but Apple icon > Force Quit > [little window] brought up a whole list of applications I haven't used, inc. Word.

4. Repair Disc Permissions

About a week ago I noticed that my open application icons weren't showing up in the dock. The only icons that will are the ones permanently docked there. I don't recall any software installations or setting changes I made, but its very possible I unknowingly changed something.

OS X Leopard :: ITunes Has Stopped Working Can't Open It From The Dock Or From Applications?
recently I've been having non response issues with several programs, most notably Safari and iTunes and also start up problems. I have a feeling this has something to do with iTunes 8.1 but don't know enough to be sure. Basically iTunes has stopped working. I can't open it from the dock or from Applications - I have almost 70 GB of songs in my library but this shouldn't be a problem should it?

Every time I try to open iTunes my computer ends up freezing and the only way out is to turn off the Mac via the power switch (held down for 10 seconds) after which I remove the power supply. When I try to restart I end up with a grey screen with a folder and a blinking question mark. If I turn off the Mac, remove the power supply and leave it for at least 10 minutes it starts up fine - or has done until now.

This is weird. I dare not go near iTunes now which is a shame as it's the main reason I chose an iMac. Today I tried to re-download iTunes which took almost an hour to install?? The Mac crashed after I was informed that the program had installed correctly and I had so much trouble restarting I thought the Mac was fried for good! After a 20 minute pause without the power cord in she's started up again but I've no idea how much time I've got.

MacBook Pro :: Dashboard Won't Open From Dock Or Applications Folder?
I've poured over these boards in hopes to finding a solution as to why my dashboard won't open. It literally stopped working mid day, one day when I went to return to get a number off of my sticky note in my dashboard. I have tried posting the different lists from my preferences page, however, am unable to get the docments to actually drag to my desktop. I'm not sure if there are any other solutions, but was hoping to find a quick fix as opposed to traveling 2 hours to the nearest genius bar. Any help would be awesome!!

OS X Leopard :: Booting Stuck At Light Blue Screen
I searched all the topics already and it seems like my problem is somehow different. When I boot everything looks normal at the beginning. I get the apple + wheel screen and than the screen goes to a light blue and stays there. After a while it goes to a darker blue and the cursor appears but that's it. The wired thing is everything seems to be fine. I can see the computer is connected to the network and also get connected with it and copy files. I've used Disk Utility and there was no problem and I've also made a small hardware test and there is no problem found. I'm running an extensive hardware test at the moment. The wired thing is it seem to be fine and everything seems to be running behind the blue screen. The monitor and the graphic card seem to work as I can see everything on screen when I boot from a CD. It started yesterday after me installing a programme to monitor our network. I wanted to install another programme and the .dmg file didn't mount. I tried to quit the first programme and it didn't worked. Then I tried to force quit it, again no reaction. Same with all other open programmes. I tired to relaunch the Finder and that's where it got completely stuck. I was left just with the empty desktop. After a while I turned the computer off to restart it again and thats when the blue screen thing started.

MacBook Pro :: Light Blue Screen Flashing?
When shutting down, we get a familiar light blue screen before the computer turns off. I'm getting this flashing at me while operating my MBP. It seems to happen twice, every so often. The screen will turn blue and become empty simultaneously for about a half second - then the screen I'm expecting to see comes back for about half a second - and then the light blue screen comes back again for about a half a second, and then everything goes back to normal.What the heck is this?

I must say, I'm having a little bit of a difficult time with my switch to Apple from Microsoft last November. I've already had to replace the logic board, it appears as if my network card is no longer working (I can only connect via WiFi) - and now I'm having this odd light-blue screen flashing... My video card?

IMac :: One Stuck Pixel In Light Blue Colour?
Yesterday I received my first brand new iMac 24". After a few hours I notice that it has one stuck pixel (in light blue colour, so I think it's not dead).I read Apple policy about 7+ stuck/dead pixels

My question is what can I do? If I want to return it, I will have to wait 1-2 weeks and then again play lottery with panel and HW (also that option would cost me additional EUR - I received 10% discount as a student and this is the only store where I have discount (and only for one computer per year I have 10% discount) - If they won't want to switch it, I would get back 1300EUR, while new one is 1500EUR in other stores).

Second option is to try fix that myself. I read tutorial on the net and the author claims 90% success with stuck pixels (with "massaging" pixel). The only problem here is the glass, I know how to remove it, but probably there would be a lot of new dust after doing that between panel and glass - and the imac is only one day old . I try with softwer and "epileptic" videos unstuck that pixel but it didn't worke (I try this for one hour).And the third option to simply forget that exists (is there a bigger chance to get another stuck pixel if I already have one???).

Snow Leopard :: Blue - White Light Staying On All The Time
I use a 1tb Free Agent drive for Time Machine, and it has a blue-ish white light that comes on when it's working. For instance, it always comes on when I wake up the machine.

This morning, it's on - and it's staying on. The drive is not full. It appears to be backing up properly. But the darn light is on. So I ask, Houston - do we have a problem here?

Mac Pro :: Dead Everything Except Fan And Shows Blue Light By System?
I just tried to start up my mac pro and nothing. The blue light lit up and the fan turned on, but no chime, no keyboard light, no monitor activity. I removed all cables and restarted and still the same result, no chime, etc.I've read through quite a few other posts and came to the conclusion it must be the logic board. Does that sound right or are there any other tests

MacBook Pro :: Some Blue / Magenta Light Leaking From Bottom Of Screen - Is It Normal?
My 2010 13" Pro seems to have some blue/magenta light leaking from the bottom of the screen. This is only visible with the brightness turned up and against a black background (i.e. when watching a letterbox movie). It's quite different from the "typical" white light leak that I've witnessed on other lcds. Would this be "normal"?

Also - and this may seem like nit-picking - but my caps lock key feels a bit flimsier than the rest of the keys. Again - is this "normal"?

Power Mac :: G5 Stuck At Light Blue Screen - Will Not Even Boot In Safe Mode
I have a 2.0 GHz early 2005 Power Mac G5 (7,3) that won't get past the light blue screen at start-up. I've tried everything - reset the PRAM, Apple Hardware Check (on overnight loops, everything came back OK), fsck (all OK), repaired my HD and permissions on it, and then erased the drive using Target Disk Mode and another Mac, and attempted to reinstall OSX from the install disk that came with it (with OSX Tiger). I've tried switching out the RAM with no luck.

The only thing I haven't tried is a new video card (the installed one is an ATI Radeon 9600). Here's what it does: powers on with the usual chime, then moves on to the white Apple screen, the wheel spins, then it moves on to a darker blue screen, then it finally moves on to a lighter blue screen with an arrow, and it just stays there. It will boot into safe mode (pressing shift), but I can't even upgrade to Leopard in safe mode, much less figure out what's wrong.

Final Cut Pro :: Rendering Sequence - Bars Becomes Light Blue On Video Area
1. If I choose Sequence > Render Selection > Both the bar becomes light blue instead of red over that area of video. Why light blue?
2. I choose Render > Selection and everything gets rendered even though nothing is selected
3. I choose Render > All > Both and nothing happens. I would figure this would render everything and not the "Selection" option.

IMac Intel :: Blue Screen When Changing Users
I have a new iMac. Actually we have 2 users in it (my wife and I) so often when she wakes up the mac and tries to login with her user account (mine still open), the mac plays the changin screens as usual, but does not show any option to log in or go back, instead it keeps in this light blue screen. I wonder what should I do, because I always end up having to shut it down by pressing the off button for a few seconds.
