MacBook Air :: Forgets Display And Keyboard Settings After Restart

Jun 6, 2009

I have a rev. A MBA and it does two odd things. If I set the display to full brightness, then power down and back up, the display doesn't return to full brightness. I have to go into the display preferences pane and move the slider a fraction of an inch to return to full brightness. The "adjust brightness for ambient light" and "reduce brightness on this power source" are disabled, so that isn't it. Also, the MBA forgets the brightness setting for the keyboard when it is powered off and then on again. As best I can determine the keyboard brightness is set to a random level at power up. I've used MacBook Pros for years, so I don't think it's anything I'm doing.

OS X :: Finder Is Restarted Completely Forgets The Settings For The Applications Folder

Apr 5, 2009

Attached you'll see two images. The first, 'Applications Folder', is how I want my Applications Folder to look whenever I access it directly (i.e. from the Go menu in the Finder Menu Bar, or from an alias or from the Dock by right-clicking, Open "Applications").

Finder used to remember this appearance perfectly. I can't remember exactly when this started, but now whenever Finder is restarted (killall Finder or a reboot) it completely forgets the settings for the Applications folder and opens it as shown in the second image, 'Finder Bug'. That's the far right of the screen, by the way. Not only does it forget the size and position of the folder's window, it also resets the grid spacing to the default value.

It only does it for this folder...I've already tried removing the .DS_Store file many times, so it's not an issue with that file. I've also run clean-up scripts and repaired permissions. It's bugs like this that still make me long for Tiger.

Software :: Firewall Settings In OSX10.5.6?

Feb 12, 2009

I am setting up a studio of 40 new Macs and can't find anything relating to setting up the Leopard firewall. All users will have Standard (mobile) accounts on Active Directory domains, and will be using the Adobe CS4/VMFusion with XP/Office 2007. If I have the firewall on 'Set access for specific services and applications' will it block the applications and prompt for an admin password?

I am on the way to install Transmission on a Unibody 15".

I see the firewall has 3 different settings:

Which setting would be most secure but still functional with Transmission?

Hardware :: Telus Firewall Settings For AirPort Express?

Jul 5, 2009

I want to use AirPort Express to send iTunes to my stereo. I get my internet connection from a wireless modem (Telus is my ISP). I can establish a new network between my MacBook and my AirPort Express which will work (iTunes comes out of my stereo), but then I cannot access my wireless network and get the internet (my Mac will only allow one network connection at a time); and I can connect an ethernet cable from my the WAN port on my wireless modem to my AirPort Express, which will also work. But I cannot get my AirPort Express to join my existing wireless network. Telus tells me this won't work because they won't allow another network to join their network. I'm guessing this would be a Telus Firewall issue, but when I look at the Firewall settings Telus provides,

Applications :: With Every Computer Reboot ITunes Forgets IPod Touch

May 10, 2010

I just bought a new MacBook Pro and used Migration Assistant to move my old MacBook files to the new machine. Ever since the file migration, my brand new iPod Touch is having a lot of problems connecting to iTunes. Here's the deal: When connected by USB to the new MBP, the iPod charges fine, but is not recognized by iTunes (does not show up at all). After mucking around a bit (unplugging/plugging in, deleting iTunes plists, and repairing disk permissions) I decided to reinstall iTunes. I followed Apple's directions to completely remove iTunes and after reinstalling iTunes the iPod was detected and all was working great again...until I shut down and restarted my computer and the iPod was no longer recognized.

I proceeded to uninstall/reinstall iTunes again. It worked!...until I restarted my computer and iTunes would not recognize the iPod again. Interestingly, each time that I followed Apple's directions to completely remove iTunes, I could not find iTunesHelper running in either Activity Monitor or present in the start-up items of System Preferences as the Apple KB suggested it should be. I should also mention that the new iPod Touch has no problems being detected by iTunes on my old MacBook (the source hard drive for the file migration). This is baffling to say the least. I'm getting ready to forget Migration Assistant, nuke my new MBP's user account and start from scratch.

ITunes :: It Forgets Media Folder Is On External Hard Drive?

May 9, 2012

I have recently started using a Time Capsule with an external hard drive attached. I have moved my music and video to the external hard drive to free up space on my MacBook Pro hard drive. I have set up iTunes to play from the external hard drive (which works fine), however, although I have changed the location of the iTune media folder in Preferences it keeps reverting to the iTunes media folder on my Mac's hard drive.

Even if I allow, and verify it's in the list as allow, it asks everytime.

I've removed it from Firewall settings, no luck.

I've reinstalled iTunes, no luck.

Hardware :: Switch Time Capsule - Settings - Use Wifi Connection Using Smartphone?

Dec 9, 2009

I have a Time Capsule wirelessly connected to my iMac. Since I've encountered some problems with backups because of intermittent wifi connection failures, I want to switch to a wired connection with an ethernet cable. I know I could fiddle with the wifi channels etc. but since the TC is just sitting next to my iMac anyway, I could profit from the higher bandwidth of a wired connection as well.

Two questions:
1. What exactly do I have to do to make the switch? Are there any new settings I have to apply? Create a new network?
2. Will I still be able to use the wifi connection to get on the internet using my smartphone?

Software :: Spotlight Forgets Privacy?

Nov 5, 2008

I have two external drives which I do not wish Spotlight to index. I add both drives to the privacy list in the system preference panel, but every time I reboot (usually for a system update), Spotlight ties up my computer for several hours indexing these two drives again!

How do I convince Spotlight to honour the privacy settings on a clean reboot?

Is this some sort of timing issue where the external drives may not be ready when Spotlight starts, so it removes them from the list, and later when they are ready Spotlight notices them and processes them?

Applications :: PhotoShop Forgets Position And Existence?

May 28, 2008

I use PhotoShop every day and since Leopard I have been using Spaces which saves me a tremendous amount of time. My problem is that PhotoShop does not "see" Spaces at all and it turns the normal everyday pain of working with PhotoShop into something truly excruciating. What I am looking for here are workarounds if anyone has them. My main issue is that PhotoShop forgets the positions and even the existence of almost all palettes, toolbars, etc. if you switch into a different "space." Even though the various palettes are checked as visible, they do not show as such until you uncheck them and then re-check them in the menus. This means about 20 clicks minimum to get the workspace back to where it was when you (foolishly) decided to switch spaces.

I have discovered of course that you can "save the workspace environment" (something I have never had to do before and have absolutely no use for), but PShop puts your saved workspace at the very bottom of a menu containing over 23 items! If you have twenty documents open, the menu then has 43 items, etc. The other alternative is to use the "default" workspace (paradoxically at the *top* of that same menu), and switch to that each time you come back to the program. But this is also a couple of clicks that I don't need, and it doesn't work for me anyway as my usual "workspace" is the default one with only a couple of adjustments (three or four more clicks each time). so even to use the default workspace, I have this tedious four or five click routine to perform every time I switch back to the program. So while we are waiting for Adobe to produce some software with some sort of minimal functionality. Does anyone else have any ideas how I can use Spaces with PShop and have less than five or so wasted clicks every time I want to use the stupid thing?

MacBook Pro :: Unibody With 10.6.2 Forgets To Auto - Dim Its Display After About Day

Jan 26, 2010

After about a day of use my Unibody MBP 13" running 10.6.2 forgets how to auto-dim its display. The "automatically adjust brightness" checkbox is still checked, but the display doesn't change brightness even if I put my thumb over the sensor. Checking & unchecking the box makes no difference. Trashing ~ System Preferences .plist makes no difference.

If I switch to another user that user still has auto-dimming working OK. If I log out and in again auto-dim works again for a day or two. So it seems like software and not hardware. I've also reset the SMC, no difference.

- have the same problem?
- know what bit of software handles auto-dim:- is there a process I can quit and relaunch?
- useful suggestions eg about .plist trashing?

Software :: System Preference Forgets Everything When I Restart

Oct 28, 2010

Ive read tons of threads about system prefs not remembering things and i am still yet to find something that fixes this problem. When i restart, or shut down and reboot, once i enter my password system prefs wont remember a single thing. not my default browser, not the size of my dock or my background. it takes all the songs out of my itunes and forgets all the passwords to my accounts online. it removes icons from my dock for example i added firefox to the computer and when i restart firefox is in the app folder but the icon wont stay on the dock. this is driving me insane. ive repaired permissions countless times.

OS X Mavericks :: Apple Mail Forgets Password For Gmail?

Nov 30, 2014

I've seen this problem documented elsewhere, but none of the "solutions" seem to work. 

I have two-step verification enabled on my Gmail account. I generate a unique application password for Apple Mail, which I enter into the password field in the Mail application. 

Inexplicably, anywhere from 5 minutes to 1 week later, when I attempt to send an e-mail I will be prompted that the password is "wrong." It isn't, because I HAVEN'T CHANGED ANYTHING. The only way I can get the message to go away is to revoke and then re-generate another unique password.

Interestingly, I can receive e-mails into the account with no problem, but it seems the sending part is where Mail gets wonky. I have tried: 

-Removing the e-mail account entirely from Mail and setting it up from scratch

-Deleting all traces of the old password from my Mac, including from Keychain Access (did this combined with the above). 

I am getting tired of this and am two steps from ditching Mail for a more functional e-mail client.

Applications :: Multiple ITunes Library Settings On Mac?

Mar 10, 2010

I want to manage 2 iTunes library on my Mac, one for my musics and the other one for my Podcast, ITunes U, Movies and TV Shows. The reason why I want to do this is because I keep my songs on my Mac HHD and the podcasts and video files on my External HHD. I built these two libraries, the podcast library is setted to copy the files directly into the EHD iTunes folder, and my songs library don't, I manage it myself. The problem is that when I quit one library and open another, the preferences are imported, they have the same preferences. How do I manage to keep one preference in one library and another preference in the other?

Applications :: ITunes 9.2 Not Remembering View Settings

Jul 13, 2010

Anyone have any idea why iTunes 9.2 doesn't seem to wan to remember my view settings for that I've configured for each of the various sections of iTunes (i.e. Music, Movies, TV Shows, Podcasts, etc.)?

If I switch to my Apps section, I've noticed that it consistently shows me my list of apps in 'List View' which I hate. If I switch it to Icon View, then go about normal use of iTunes for a while (browse other sections, perhaps sync my iDevice, perhaps quit the app and re-open later to listen to music, etc...), upon returning to the Apps section, it will once again show me my Apps in 'List View'.

This is just one example, but it would seem that all of the view settings across the board are simply not how I had previously set them up, and changing them to the way I would like them to be setup only works temporarily (as everything strangely gets switched back again in the near future).
