OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Disable Sync

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?

Feb 9, 2012

For our users Keychain is a nightmare - especially because they do not remember the first password - as the network enforces them to change it every 90 days. With this the keychain pop keeps coming up constantly and is affecting the users working. So I would like to know how to stop keychain or to disable it?

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In Apple's OSX Mail app, I've got a mailbox that connects to an  server that is no longer valid.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.

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]

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: ICloud Address Book Sync For It

Feb 25, 2012

Mountain Lion won't run on my Intel-graphics dual core white MacBook. Lion should run, but I've been disappointed with Lion and it is now end-of-life (mercifully short). So I've a perfectly fine and responsive Snow Leopard machine. Only problem -- when MobileMe dies in June Address Book on that device won't sync with our iPhone [1]. 

I know Apple doesn't allow 3rd parties to sync anything to iCloud. So there's no solution that way. One approach is to use a 3rd party app to sync Address Book on this machine with Address Book on another machine that in turn syncs with iCloud. 

The easier approach is to go all Google; sync Address Book to Google, set the iPhone to use a Google Apps account. (Ironic that Apple's obsoleting a solid MacBook should drive us to Google.) [1] For various reasons the iPhone syncs to another machine with our family app/media library. So I can't sync Address Book via iTunes.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: 10.6 Address Book Sync With ICloud?

Mar 1, 2012

I have OS 10.7 (latest version) installed on a MacBook Pro, and iOS5 on my iPhone. I recently migrated to iCloud from MobileMe.  However, my company still uses OS 10.6.8. 

How can I get my Address Book on my work Mac, running OS 10.6.8 to sync with my iCloud account? 

How do I set up the iCloud account in my address book? Where is the Contacts server? 

And please don't tell me to upgrade to 10.7. That's not an option.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Time Sync Between Client And Domain Controller?

Feb 15, 2012

Is there a command to force time sync on Snow Leopard machines? I have lots machine which are joined to windows domain controller using third party utility (AdmitMac by Thursby). Even though under Day & Time system preference, I have set the machine to sync to our server but machine are still not correcting the time. 

I have tried following methods to force the machines to sync: I have manually selected the machine to sych with Apple but that does not change the time at all (even after couple of reboots)Changing the date and time to something completely different (year, month and day) then rebooted machine then force it back to our server but that does not change machine time either.Only thing which has worked so far is that I have manually adjusted that time to match the next working machine. All of this has caused me lot of trouble in Mac labs because machine will not allow anyone to login and I have remove it from the domain and then re-join back.
