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.

OS X :: Forgets Passwords On Sites

Apr 30, 2008

My computer (newer imac, last gen) has an issue with remembering passwords. It'll forget them in the middle of me using the internet. Usually it forgets what my Gmail password is (using the gmail notifier in the top right corner), it forgets my passwords on sites like this (every week or so) and it forgets certain things i do in certain programs (itll reset everything like i've never used it before).

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.

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.

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.

OS X :: Looking For Time Machine Password Protection

Apr 7, 2008

I use Time Machine to back up my data and am very satisfied but have one problem with it. Is there anyway to password protect the backed up data or even the entire external hard drive?

My user account is password protected but it appears as if anyone who has physical access to my external hard drive can access all of my information. If this is the case, how can I protect my data?

OS X :: Time Machine Restore - Asking For Password

Aug 30, 2009

I just did a clean install of Snow Leopard on my MacBook Pro and I'm at the part where it asks if I already own a Mac. I choose restore "From a Time Machine backup", I select the backup volume but then the system is asking me for the passoword to my Time Capsule. What? I don't remember giving it a password. I tried my system password from my Leopard installation along with a bunch of common passwords I've used and none of them work.

OS X :: Password Protection For Time Machine?

Sep 14, 2009

I have a time machine back up of my mac on an external hard drive. If this HD was stolen/lost would an avergae joe be able to access the data. i.e if it was plugged into another computer would all my files be accessible.

I use a password to login to my admin account and i'm the only user account.

Do i need to add some protection to my external? I realise that a clever mac user could get around any protection.

OS X :: Mail Setup - Ask For Password Every Time To Login

Dec 9, 2010

I just set up the Mail app but dislike that even after I quit the app if I click it again to reopen it it doesn't require me to re-enter my password. This means even if I close/quit it and walk away from my laptop anyone who uses it can just click Mail and they have complete access to my Gmail account.

I went into preferences but could not find where or how to require it to ask for my password after it's been closed. If there isn't an option then I will go back to copying an address when on a website then opening gmail and pasting it and emailing. Obviously using the Mail app would be more convenient for those types of emails but if it means my account is always open and available for anyone to read then I will go back to the longer method.

MacBook Pro :: Asks For ICloud Password Every Time Log In

Aug 22, 2014

Recently, my Macbook Pro has been asking for my iCloud password every time I have logged in, or taken my computer out of sleep mode. I don't use iCloud and never have, and have signed out through system preferences as well. I hit cancel when it makes the request, but the window just pops again right away.  

I have checked my Login Items and iCloud is not one of them.

Is there a way to get this to stop, or even better, is there a way to delete iCloud safely?

Hard drive recently failed.  Replaced hard drive and used Time Machine  to recreate system.  Everything seems ok, but I cannot install software.  It prompts for a password, as it always has, but the system is rejecting my password as invalid.  This is the same password I have had for years (yes..i know). I cannot figure out how to reset it since it doesn't recognize the original password.
