OS X V10.7 Lion :: Apps Quit After Long Sleep?

Jun 22, 2012

Typically, a short sleep does not affect the apps I have running.  So if I step away from the machine and it goes to sleep, when I wake the machine in a half-hour or so, the various app windows are still there and I can keep working.  I use Mission Control to keep three desktops: one for Mail, one for Safari and one for general use.  When the machine goes to sleep at night, Time Machine and Carbon Copy Cloner do their backups (around 3:00 am).  Then when I wake the machine in the morning, there are no running apps.  Mail and Safari seem to have quit and those Mission Control desktops are empty. how I can keep those apps running?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Force Quit Finder - Repairing Permissions Taking Long Time

Apr 23, 2012

I am concerned about my MacBook Pro that I am running Lion on... recently I had to force quit the finder. Everything seemed to check out using TechTool Pro 6. Repairing permissions takes a very long time.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: MacBook Air Not Reconnecting To Wireless After Long Sleep

Mar 3, 2012

First off, apologies if this has been addressed in a previous post; went through a few pages and saw nothing that helped. I have been having problems with my i5 Thunderbolt 11" MacBook Air - running Lion 10.7.3 - reconnecting to my home network, which is listed as a Prefered Network, after being in sleep mode; especially after a long sleep, say overnight.  

I know it's not my network because my 2.8 Core 2 Duo 15" MBP - running 10.6.8 - never has a problems reconnecting. I see other posts refering to a WiFi Update for other machines, but not the Air. And this was purchased with Lion, so while a re-install might solve the issue - again something I saw suggested - I would rather avoid the hassle.  

I've checked with the "Apple people" at Best Buy - the closest thing I have to an Apple Store here in South Texas - and they say the recent update should have fixed the problem.   [URL]..

MacBook Pro :: Starting Apps Takes Extremely Long Since Upgrade To Lion X

Mar 18, 2012

My MacBook Pro seems to take long to start any application, especially when it was in standby. I bought it in 2009 and wanted to use iCLoud. Therefore I bought Snow Leopard, Lion and new version of iPhoto. Is it just the consequence of the upgrades that are too heavy for the "old" processor?

Applications :: Firefox Takes Long Time To Quit?

Mar 31, 2009

I seem to recall that up until the last several updates it used to be OK, but ever since it takes around 30 seconds or more for firefox to quit.

Even when I clear out caches, it still does it. I have no idea. I mean, Safari quit immediately, as does pretty much everything else. No biggie, just annoying.

Any ideas besides firefox sucks?

Software :: Firefox Takes Long Time To Quit

May 22, 2009

Firefox works great, but when I quit the app, I have to sit and wait several minutes for it to finish quitting before closing my laptop. It's not a big deal, but it's annoying at times - especially when I'm rushing in between clients. I'd like to be able to just quit and close and off I go. Is there any way to lessen the time that it takes FF to quit?

MacBook :: It Takes Long To Go To Sleep

May 30, 2012

My macbook used to take about 5 seconds or less to go to sleep when I would manually put it to sleep. It now takes about a minute for it to go to sleep. I read on a forum that you may have a job stuck in the printer que. This is not my problem. I've tried to start in safe mode and it's still not fixed. I've also checked the permissions and repaired those.

OS X :: Apps Freezing - Can't Force Quit

Jul 28, 2008

I have a Mac Pro with 10.5.4 (Intel 2.66 Dual-Core -- 5GB ram) installed. Things have been running smoothly for a long time, but recently I've had a few kernel panics, which seem to have gone away, but now it's very common for applications to freeze, and I can't unfreeze them by force-quitting--I have to power the G5 down by holding the power button.

The icon starts to open and then I get an error message.  Some of the apps are Adobe Reader and various Garmin apps.  The message is "<name of app> quit unexpectedly" and then it gives a long list of computer info.  This happened suddenly and I don't know why.  I have used the Disk Utility App but it has not worked.

Applications :: Itunes Tyakes Long To Open / Lags When Scrolling Through Apps

Apr 25, 2009

I love the idea of a one-stop media center like iTunes, but as each new feature is added it just feels too big and slow to me now. It takes forever to open, it lags even when I just try scrolling through apps, it sends regular genius updates to Apple, it has a radio, ringtones, movies, tv shows, the list goes on. Does anyone else feel the same way?

Mac Pro :: HD Spinning While Sleep - Shut Down Taking Long Time?

Mar 24, 2008

I recently did a clean install of Leopard on a brand new hard drive for my Late '06 Mac Pro. I currently have all updates installed, and the system is running very fast and very stable. But! I've been experiencing two problems over the week I've had Leopard installed, and I would just like to know if other MP users are sharing these as well...

1. Half the time I wake the computer from sleep, the fans blast off for about 10 seconds before the desktop is shown. Sometimes when the computer goes to sleep, via Energy Saver, my hard drives keep spinning.
2. Shut down takes an excruciatingly long time. My typical shut down lasts around a minute to a minute and a half.

I've read around and have seen a few problems like this, but I want to know if there are a larger majority of people with a Mac Pro who are experiencing either of these in Leopard. It's not such a nuisance, being I don't have to wait for shut down and I can wait around a few seconds when waking up the computer. Though, here's to hoping 10.5.3 or a firmware update can fix these two issues!

OS X Mavericks :: Force Quit Showing Apps Still Open

Jun 27, 2014

'm showing iBooks, Pages, & Preview are still open via the Force Quit dialog but I haven't used them since the previous evening.I have an older Macbook (Aluminum, Late 2008) so I try to run as lean as possible. There are no extra windows open that I can find.  Double clicking them from Force Quit brings them up to then quit from the application proper, apps to quit when I tell them to.Has this to do with iCloud integration? (Like Pages wasn't quite done with an iCloud upload before I quit).Should I try a reinstall of the apps or Mavericks?

OS X Mavericks :: Quit Out Of All Running Apps Before Doing Shutdown Will Restart On Boot

Jun 26, 2014

I am running Mavericks 10.9.3.

I always quit out of all apps before doing a shutdown.  I make sure that nothing, except Finder, is running when i shutdown.  And, I do a full shutdown, not just sleep.   

Yet, occasionally, the apps that were running before I quit out of them will restart when I turn the MacBook back on.

Mac Mini :: Quit Entering In Sleep Mode

Apr 29, 2012

I have a late-2011 mac mini that quit entering sleep mode a few days ago. It won't sleep using the Energy Saver Preference Pane, either with or without the assistance of Please Sleep. It won't sleep using any keyboard command or selecting Sleep from the Apple menu. I've tried turning Bluetooth off, resetting the SMC, and resetting the PRAM all without effect. (Before this, I also tried repairing permissions and running Disk Warrior.)

OS X Technologies :: AppleScript That Will Quit Application Upon Sleep

Jul 6, 2012

I have never worked with applescript before, so I am completely lost. I have a program that does not like to be open when the computer goes to sleep. I usually remember to close the app, but sometimes I forget and get myself in trouble. If I do forget, very bad things can happen to the database of the program, so it is imperative that it is closed.

I am hoping there is an applescript that will quit the application if I put my laptop to sleep, usually by closing the lid. I don't want to trigger the sleep with the applescript, just something that will see that the computer is going to sleep and quit the application before it happens.Is this possible, and if so, how do I go about doing it?

MacBook Pro :: Hangs Indefinitely On Wake After Long Sleep, Then Fails To Boot

Mar 21, 2012

I installed the latest version of Lion on my mid-2009 13" MBP yesterday. I recently got a Corsair 256GB SSD (model CMFSSD-256D1) and that's what I installed Lion onto. It seems this behaviour has only been happening since I got this SSD. What happens is when I put my computer to sleep for a long period (say, 2 or more hours), when I wake it up, some of my applications show the spinning beachball - though some of the applications still seem to respond. After playing around with the responsive applications for a bit, they eventually start beachballing as well. After a minute or two the entire system is beachballed and I can't do anything. My only option is to do a hard shutdown. (It almost seems like the SSD has decided not to respond to requests?) 

When this happens and I do the hard shutdown, I consistently cannot boot my MBP at this point. I shut it off again, wait a bit, turn it on, and try booting again - nothing. The screen is all white (maybe light gray), and the animated gear never appears. I do hear the boot sound. When my MBP is in this state, none of the special boot options work - e.g., holding down "shift" for Safe Mode, holding down "option" to choose another boot drive, holding down "command+R" to boot from the recovery partition - it's as if I hadn't held those keys down at all. The only keys that do work are "option+command+P+R", which resets the NVRAM. After I've resetted the NVRAM, it still doesn't boot right away. I turn it off again, turn it on, and finally my MBP boots totally fast and fine. I do a check of the disk and there are zero disk/permission errors. 

This is totally reproducible behaviour. Every time it's in sleep mode for a few hours, it does this, and I can't boot, and the only way I can boot is by following those steps above. 

If I put the MBP in sleep mode for just a couple minutes to test it, it comes back from the sleep fine. I'm not sure how long it has to be in sleep mode before it decides to beachball on wake. 

I have done a search for new firmware for my SSD and have come up with nothing.

Intel Mac :: Force Quit Apps / Dropped Server Connections - Hard Reboot

May 16, 2012

I frequently have to Force Quit my applications - both Microsoft Office apps and Adobe Creative Suite apps. I have an iMac running 10.6.8, connected to a Microsoft 2003 server (the 2008 server works even worse for the iMac connection). I also frequently lose the server connection and have to re-boot to get it back. Re-booting involves pushing the Power button Off, then On because the menu commands don't work.

I have NO issues with the Internet connection - it remains strong throughout. I'm wondering if upgrading to Lion will increase the stability. To do that, I would also have to upgrade my Adobe CS software from CS4 to CS6, and expensive proposition with no guarantee it will resolve these issues. (Many of the Apple techs I called pointed their fingers at the Microsft server.) Is any of this curable? If so, what is the cure?

Since upgrading to 10.6.1 I've found that every time i wake my MB from sleep, applications keep quitting left and right, and I get these "application quit unexpectedly" messages. It's happened with Entourage, Safari, iTunes, Dashboard. It's getting pretty annoying. I've tried resetting the PRAM but that didn't help.
Does anybody have a clue what to do?!
