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

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.4), 2012, 13", 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM

MacBook Pro :: System Preference>Background Frozen With Rainbow BeachBall - Force Quit

Apr 8, 2012

Ive ran multiple different types of terminal searches for this "flashback" Trojan worm/virus that's going around. I've also searched for com.apple.systempreference.plist and it's not in there at all. I've done safe mode and everything else. I do not have a wallpaper HD lite, I am OUT of options, and I really don't want to have to re install Lion. Can someone PLEASE tell me something, other than those options?

MacBook Pro (13-inch Early 2011), 4 GB Version 10.7.3

Dec 10, 2014

This has happened multiple times now since installing Yosemite. The problem displayed above is that after force quitting I can't open an application all. Even though it's not running anymore, as proven by the black dot that would be under the icon if it was. I've had this happen with 2 different applications: Steam and Google Chrome.

My system Specs are:

OS X Yosemite Version 10.10.1

-2.5 GHz Intel Core i5
-Memory 4gb 1600 MHz DDR3
-Mac Mini (Late 2012)

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?

Aperture :: Will Not Open - Endless Spinning Beach Ball / Will Not Force Quit

Every attempt to open Aperture results in a spinning beach ball. When attempting to force quit, every program freezes. I am running a MacBook Pro, OS X 10.9.3, 8 GB Ram. Have deleted and reinstalled the program from the App store with the same results. Purchased Aperture a few months ago and began without difficulties.

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 Pretends To Quit?

Jun 25, 2012

Since upgrading to Lion I have noticed that when I quit Preview it disappears from the dock and seems to be closed, but is still running in the background. This manifests itself when I try to delete a PDF or other file that I have been looking at in Preview and the Trash dialogue says it cannot be deleted as it is still in use. If I then go to Force Quit I find Preview is still listed as running there, even though it is not longer showing in the dock. Force Quitting Preview then allows me to empty the trash.

Dec 31, 2010

Has anyone else noticed that the trackpad button requires more force towards the top (it is harder to push closer to the section that is near the space bar)? It seems to still work at the top but I have to push down really hard on it.

Is this normal?

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?

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.
