how to permanently disable this? Since I installed Lion, my computer freezes about once a day (I have plenty of harddrive and RAM) and so I have to force restart it. It takes about 10 minutes for it to start up because of all the windows I always have open.
After I logged out of my account, I logged back in to see nothing on my desktop except for "Macintosh HD." I click on it and noticed that my home folder is mounted as a disk image under "Places." By "home folder" I meant the folder found at MacintoshHDusers ame-of-folder. I did not shutdown and login again, I logged out back to the main login screen, then logged in again under the same account. Shutting down the computer before logging in to the same account prevents this from happening, but logging out then logging back in causes it to happen.
I am facing issues in network connectivity. I am using a brand new MacBook Air. I am able to use the internet at the staring but once i logged off and log in back I am not able to connect. Signal strength is showing good. I always needed to goto network preferences and diagnose, so it will do the check ups and will show the connection is working properly and i will be able to use the internet. ¬†It is taking my time alot.
Sometime, Lion does not reopen ALL my applications and files after shutdown. It works very fine for Mail. However, Safari, Microsoft Word and TextEdit are problems. There are indicator lights for those applications showing under the docks. ¬†For example, when I click Safari, a new window and new tab will open. My previous tabs and windows are gone. It is killing since they are most likely important web pages for me.¬†
I close all my programs before shutting down. Since installing Lion, programs I used recently relaunch when I start up the machine, sometimes the next day. No, I don't have "Start on Login" selected for these apps in the dock. Another weird thing:¬† I selected a Word document to open, the app launched and the last document I was in also opened, even though I didn't select it.
I'm have an issue where when I login to my mac, it goes to a black/grey screen. It's definately on, but you just can't see anything. I'm think poss hard drive failure, but I'm not sure.¬†¬†¬†
Earler this week, I noticed copying files from different devices and HDD, were particuarly slower that normal. Today the screen started to flicker quite eratically and I had to force a restart. It seem to be ok after that. However a few hours after, while I was doing some work, the screen just went a greyish black. ¬†¬†¬†
Each time I re-booted, it would either just go to a black screen as soon as it started up, or, get all the way the the desktop, then the black screen would appear.¬†¬†¬†
I've reset the PRAM and SMC. I even got a Blue screen while halfway through performing a Hardware test. ¬†I've tried changing the memory modules and still no luck, safe mode fails too. ¬†¬†¬†
Could it be HD failure? Or something more servere like the logic board. I did the Java update today too, however, I'm sure the screen was flickering before that. ¬†¬†¬†
Info: iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3), 750Gb HD, 4Gb Memory, 3.06Mhz CPU
When I launch my Mac, I go through the login process, enter in my password, etc. The screen changes and I see my OS X desktop. Within 2-3 seconds, the screen goes gray and the little circular timer appears and after a minute or so, the screen turns off. This now happens every time I start my computer, and I cannot stop it.
Every time I try to log into my webmail from my computers or iPhone, I get an incorrect user name or password error message and haven't been able to receive my mail in my inbox.¬† The server (Cox Communications) is telling me I need malware or spyware or whatever the heck one uses for this type of thing.¬† I've never had to worry about that before but have recently posted items on Ebay, Craigslist and also a resume online which is about the time I seemed to start having problems with my server connection.¬†
I have a 5s iPhone, an OSX Mountain Lion and a Lion and it is happening on all three devices
I am running bootcamp with xp on my older non unibody macbook pro. I have it hooked up with a dell monitor, but I want to see things only on the dell monitor and not the macbook one. This works fine booted into OSX, but I can't find a way to do it in windows. Is there a way to disable my laptop monitor?
I have Boot Camp set up so Parallels Desktop can access it. Trouble is, whenever I boot up using Parallels, Windows Activation fails. If I boot up in Boot Camp, and reactive, all is fine. Rather annoying - Windows functions fine (as far as I'm aware) when the activation fails, but it just means that I have to keep closing the popup box that appears. Best way to sort all of this?
I posted earlier about if I can use both a Nvidea 8800 GT and an ATI Radeon 2600 XT with my new Mac Pro. Currently it just has an ATI card and it seems like it'll work fine. The other question I have though, how will this work under VMWare? I have a Linux virtual machine but most of all I use a Windows XP Virtual Machine. Will there be a conflict between the two video cards when I use Windows XP? If so, I won't even need the ATI as much when I'm on Windows XP. Is it possible to disable that and just use the NVidea card while using Windows?
Here is my problem. Whenever I start up in mac osx, the boot camp volume that has windows vista on it automounts. I always unmount it but then when i restart, the volume is right there again. I was wondering if there was any way to disable it from automounting because I know I can just change which os I want to start up in with the "option" button. If there is a process, could someone be really specific cause I'm still quite new to the mac.
Anyone know how to disable the new feature in Hotmail? I hate that when I login to check email it automatically signs onto MSN messenger and everyone can contact me when all I want to do is check my email. Is this the right area to post?
