OS X Yosemite :: Force Quit Window Will Say - Finder Is Not Responding

Dec 2, 2014

I've assigned the tags I want to a file, I'll get the beach ball. If I go into the Force Quit window it will say that Finder is not responding. But if I wait about 20-30 seconds it stops and I can go about my business w/o re-starting the Finder. I only noticed this after installing Yosemite. I use tags A LOT.

Software :: Safari 4.0.3 Not Responding - Need To Force Quit

Sep 25, 2009

Since the last update my Safari 4.0.3 crashes a lot. Like 3 or 4 times a day. Either that or it shows the spinning beach ball, meaning Safari is not responding and needs to be force quit. It looks like it's happening when a page is (re)loading. This looks a lot like the continuous crashing that happened to Safari 4 when it was just launched (was that in April, or May?). That was then reason for me to switch to Firefox. If this keeps up I might do that again. Or maybe to Chrome.

(I'm still on OSX.5.8).

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Force Quit Mac Mail To Shutdown?

Mar 28, 2012

Every time I want to shut down my late 2011 MacBook Pro, Mac Mail cancels the shut down & I have to force quit mail.  I was having this problem on my old 2008 MacBook before I upgraded to the Pro (but it only started after I upgraded to Lion OSX).  So what's wrong w/ Mac Mail? And is there some setting I can change?  This is an annoying time suck.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change The Size Of The Force Quit Window?

May 13, 2012

When I open the force quit window, it fills my entire screen, and it is larger than the screen of the TFT monitor that I am using from time to time. How can I change its size back to original? The window is not resizable by dragging its border or clicking the green plus button in the title bar.  

I don't know how the window got this size in the first place. All I know is that it happened during a crash where I closed a lot of other windows and where I accidentially clicked the green plus button of the force quit window instead of the red x.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Preview Remaining Open In Background - Requires Force Quit

Jun 20, 2012

I have this problem on my new MBA (2012) and mac mini (2011), both running the latest update of LION (10.7.4). Basically, if I am using preview, it shows up on my dock no problem and I can close windows/hide/quite no problem. Usually a while later, a copy of Preview ends up showing up in my FORCE QUIT menu (if I happen to be there), but is not visibly open. (see pic).

Odd that it occurs on both. Only things that are non-apple installed on MBA (and mirror with MM) are:

- MS Office 2k11
- Firefox
- ClamXav virus scanner
- Diablo 3

OS X Mountain Lion :: Finder Not Responding

Jun 2, 2014

I've just got an iPhone 5S, upgrading from an iPhone 4. I used to manually sync/backup to iTunes, and did one last backup prior to switching which completed with no problems. I thought I'd mention this as this was the last activity before the issue occurred. 

When using the finder to navigate/open folders, I get the spinning beach ball which just hangs. When forcing to relaunch the window states (finder not responding). I can still use applications and browse the web with no problems, however moving the cursor over the finder results in the beach ball. After relaunching the finder it seems ok until you perform a couple of operations then it hangs again.  

I have ran Disk Utility and repaired permissions and also restarted etc but the same problem remains. Also deleted preferences (assuming I deleted the correct ones). If I login to another user account then everything seems to be fine, however logging back into the admin user account – same problem. I've noticed that if I turn WiFi off, it resolves the issue. Turning it back on brings back the problem.

OS X :: IMac And AOL - Need To Force Quit

Mar 25, 2009

I purchased a new IMac Intel version and I am having a problem with AOL. I have always had a problem with AOL and my Macs (now on number 3). In the past, if I left AOL running it would not allow the Macs to close down without Force Quitting from AOL and AOL would not quit normally. With the new Mac, if I use AOL it won't quit and when I Force Quit it disconnects the Mac from the internet and I have to restart. As I live in Antigua both Apple and AOL have been useless at trying to solve the problem.

OS X :: Force Quit Has Wrong Key Command On 10.6?

May 28, 2010

I wanted to force quit an application on my first gen MacBook running Mac OS X 10.6.3, so I looked up the short cut key command from the Apple menu. I saw that it was option-command-power-button. I pressed these keys, and my Mac instantly displayed a black screen. After about five seconds, my Mac made the usual sounds of starting up. I booted up, and nothing seemed to have been affected, so I double checked Console, which didn't help much. I looked up the short cut key command for force quit online. The Internet says its option-command-esc. I tried the command, and up popped the force quit prompt. So why is the short cut key command WRONG on my Apple menu?

OS X :: How To Force Quit When Pressing Red Button

Nov 9, 2010

I'd like to force quit just like in Windows when I press the Red Button. It's stupid that OS X minimizes it. ( programs consume alot of CPU power if you do this, I watched activity monitor and some programs use 10-20% in this state )

How do I setup OS X to force quit an application when I press the Red Button?

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

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.

OS X :: After Force Quit No Way To Restart Application

Apr 23, 2009

Sometime when some application hangs I try to force quit it and the process completely disappears from the Activity Monitor, but the little white marker under the icon on the dock remains and there is no way to restart the application. Does any one know of an easy way out without having the restart the machine? I have a 2008 MBP with Leopard 100% up-to-date on the machine. I tried restarting the application directly from the Application folder instead of double clicking on the dock, and I got "An unexpected error occurred (error code -600)" -- according to Apple, error code -600 means: procNotFound - No eligible process with specified process serial number.

Laptops :: Applications Are Stalling - Need To Force Quit

Apr 8, 2010

At first I thought it was a Quark problem. When doing a mundane action such as changing a word to Italic, Quark 7.5 stalls (pretty color spinning wheel comes up and won't go away) it has to be forced to quit. Now, the same thing happened in Acrobat 7, when I was just moving across the top menu bar to drop down the tools menu. I am running MAC 0S X 10.5 on a MAC Book Pro3 - 2.4 ghz. I've run maintenance and everything looks fine.

OS X :: Preserving Tabs In Safari After Force Quit?

Sep 8, 2009

Things usually go so well with Safari that I let my tabs grow to quite a number. No problem, until visiting an unfriendly web site that gives the spinning beach ball of frustration. Force quitting is the only solution, but there go all those tabs, some I've had open for days or weeks.

Is there a workaround that allows one to save the previous session, including tabs upon quitting Safari (to include Force Quit)?
