OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Disable Correct Spelling Automatically

Apr 7, 2012

I cannot disable the Correct Spelling Automatically feature. Rather, I can, but once I close and reopen the application it will be reenabled. I first noticed the issue when I upgraded from Trillian 1.2.20 to 1.2.40, but I just tested this in TextEdit and the issue exists there as well.

OS X :: Getting "Correct Spelling Automatically" To Work?

I thought Snow Leopard had the option to fix spelling errors as you're typing. I tried right-clicking and enabling it, but it still does nothing. What the heck am I missing here?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Available Disk Space Not Correct

Feb 11, 2012

I'm using a MacBook Pro (March 2011) running 10.6.8. 

I just deleted (technically backed up to an external raid and then deleted from the system disk) about 8gb worth of files. 

However, in Finder and in Disk Utility, it shows 1.96GB available.  That number is up a little and for awhile at least, was growing. 

I'm also experiencing this same problem on an external USB drive.  I deleted about 3 gb worth of files, but the available disk space hasn't increased.   

I'm coming from the PC world, where, if you delete a bunch of stuff, the free disk space magically increases to show the correct amount.

Mar 12, 2012

I have this really annoying and recurring problem; I never used mobileme but somehow the 'sync' functionality has been activated, its icon remains in the menubar.  

At the most inconvenient moments the d--n thing will attempt to sync and give me (fault)messages, most recently it has been trying to sync my Google address-book with the one on my MacPro. How can I deactivate this?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Disable A Mail.app Account?

May 14, 2012

In Apple's OSX Mail app, I've got a mailbox that connects to an  server that is no longer valid. That is, the address no longer works.  I'd like to have Mail stop checking that address. But I'd like to keep everything as is otherwise, if possible. In Mail preferences, I tried unchecking "include when automatically checking mail" -- but the account still gets checked when I hit "Get Mail" manually. I tried unchecking the box for "enable this account", too, but when I do that, all messages in that mailbox seem to disappear. Are they saved anywhere? I don't want to lose them and I still want to be able to search them.

I recently upgraded to SL and the internet connection works fine, but every 1o minutes or so I get a pop up window which says:

On Tiger it was easy to disable this reminder, but I can't seem to be able to do the same on SL.

MacBook :: Disable The Display In Snow Leopard (no Clamshell)

Feb 27, 2012

I have an original MacBook (1,1) that I use without the lid (the display was destroyed, and replacement was too dear, so I took the top off altogether). It's actually a pretty handy desktop. One problem is that sometimes windows go astray because the "Displays" setting is set for two screens (mirroring does'nt work because it reduces the resolution to 800x600). I am wondering if there is anyway to trick the macbook into thinking the lid is closed, and/or disabling the internal display altogether (basically so that only the external monitor is recognized).

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Disable The Auto-eject Of A Failing HD

Mar 31, 2012

My kids HD just started to fail.  Apple replaced it this AM, however my kid's TM backup is about 5 months old.  I am trying to recover the data from the old disk. 

She put the old disk into an enclosure and connected it to her MBP.  As I try to copy as much of the drive as possible it gets an error, ejects, then reconnects and give an annoying message that I didn’t eject properly.  This is making it very difficult to get all the data off. 

I figured if I mounted read-only that it’d stop doing that, but it does not.  I’ve run fsck, etc… 

All I need is for this stupid machine to log errors and move on just like single user mode.  However, I cannot use single user mode because I am 2000 miles away from the machine.  And using Facetime to remote control my kid has pushed me to the edge.  There has to be a way to make OSX as “unfriendly” as Linux. OSX needs a “pro” mode. 

So, I ask again.  How do I stop OSX from auto ejecting a disk when it errors?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Way To Disable Autodiscover For Exchange In Mail?

May 8, 2012

I am trying to access my exchange server for work. The autodiscover sets the exchange server to the wrong site (whether this is a Mail issue or a server issue, I'm not sure...); I am trying to disable autodiscover so that I can manually set the exchange server in a permanent way. Is this possible? When I contacted IT at work, this was their response: "Mac users are pointed to a different server address due to incompatibilities with the Mac applications that handle mail (Entourage, Macmail). The issue is that an auto-discover feature within the application causes the software to connect to the incorrect address automatically, therefore you must change it each time. Unfortunately Macmail and Entourage cannot disable this function and we recommend using Outlook 2011 for Mac. There is a script file available to disable autodiscovery in Outlook 2011 and it will retain the proper mail server settings."

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Disable Cursor Hover Feature?

Jun 13, 2012

Was wondering if there is some way to disable the auto-open cursor hover feature? (Not sure what else to call it). It's driving me nuts.It's most disfunctional with Safari--for example when I'm trying to find a specific webpage in the Histor-- if I don't keep moving the cursor constantly, whatever URL the cursor happens to be over will just open and load.Then I have to start over again. This seems to happen sometimes on the desktop as well.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Disable Yellow Highlight During Search Process

Jun 21, 2012

This is not a question about the highlight color that you set in system preferences.When you search for text, the found text jumps out at you in blaring yellow, all too literally in your face. This was useful when they first introduced it in Safari-- but now it's all over the OS. In a text editor, where the search result might be a whole paragraph, it's agonizing. It's getting to where I have to look away from the screen when I hit Search, and wait a moment for the color to die down. Isn't there any way to disable it? It hurts my eyes.I found a thread from pretty exactly two years ago asking the same question:[url]

I have tried connecting to the them and then dragging them into the login items, but on restart, they don't appear on the desktop.

OS X :: MacBook Not Sleep Automatically Since Snow Leopard Install

Dec 30, 2009

I am having a serious issue with my MacBook since upgrading to Mac OS X Snow Leopard. My MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, 2.4 GHz) will not go to sleep automatically anymore. If I select "Sleep" from the Apple menu it will sleep fine. However, it will not sleep according to my Energy Saver preference pane which says sleep at 1 min each (Display and Computer). Another thing to keep in mind is that my display sleeps perfectly normally. However, the computer itself will not sleep.

Here are the things that I have tried so far:
Reinstall 10.6.2 combo updater
Remove Energy Saver preferences and entire System Configuration folder
Made sure that no hardware or software is interrupting sleep
Reset PRAM and SMC
Repaired Disk Permissions
Archive and Install
I am running Mac OS X 10.6.2 with ALL updates and firmware installed.
