PowerPC :: Set IMac G3 (Blueberry) To Stop Automatic Login At Start Up?

Jun 19, 2008

A couple of nights ago I set my iMac G3 (Blueberry) to stop automatic login at start up and put it to sleep. I did this because I didn't want my kids on the web in the middle of the night while I was sleeping. When morning comes, the computer is off. I try to start it but it won't turn over. When I push the on button, the button flashes on for a split second and I hear the crackle of static as if the computer is starting, but nothing happens after that. I tried plugging and unplugging the computer, but nothing helps.

It's like a car that won't turn over.

MacBook Air :: How To Stop Start Up Programs From Opening

May 29, 2012

I am getting a little frustrated. Everytime I start my computer Word, Excel and other programs open. I have tried the following which hasn't helped. 

1. I went into system preferences into User/Groups, logins and deleted all items.  

2. Hovered over the word in the menu bar at the bottom of the screen, clicked options, unchecked open at login. (I have been closing down the application before loging off)   

Other than that I am not sure how to stop these from opening.

Applications :: Stop Application From Loading At Start Up?

Aug 26, 2010

I have this program installed called KeyAccess (or KeyServer). It is used by my college to allow me access to the licenses to a slew of software provided by the school. However, it loads at startup, and I have no idea how to prevent it from doing so. There's no option to configure it not to, I have tried looking for an entry in StartupItems and Login Items of my Accounts preferences. It is located in the Preferences Pane, its not really a standalone program.

OS X Yosemite :: Automatically Login To IMac Without Password

Dec 5, 2014

Recently brought iMac in for software upgrade. now 10.10.1 

After i got home, i realized that the iMac now always asks me to login with my password (which i do). But i would prefer not to have to login/put in password every time. just want my iMac to open as it always had. 

I assume i go to system preferences/users & groups. i see i am the current user/administrator. When i click "change password" it says: "*** is using an iCloud password to log in and unlock the screen.

do you want to change your iCloud password or stop using your iCloud password to unlock this mac AND CREATE A SEPARATE PASSWORD?" 

Don't want separate or any passwords. Do i just want to click the "change iCloud password" button? Ijust want to log in without a password. How do i do that?

MacBook :: Safari Not Loading Websites Until I Click Stop Loading And Reload It?

Apr 1, 2010

I am Having some issues with Safari (I am using 4.0.5), if I open up a website the screen stays white like it normally does for a sec to load a web page but the loading icon keeps spinning and spinning and spinning....... until I click the "X" stop icon and reload the web page. As soon as I click the reload icon the webpage loads up instantly, it is getting really annoying and would be great if anyone has a fix. This doesn't happen all the time, but it does happen frequently and then be fine for a few web pages and then start up again.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Get Imac To Stop Automatically Searching For Updates

Mar 15, 2012

I cannot get my imac to stop automatically searching for updates. I set preferences to monthly, or turn it off - it doesn't matter I cannot change it from checking for updates constantly. Furthermore, once it's checked for updates I cannot dismiss the ones I do not need or want. It constantly asks me to install the updates even though I would have no use for them.

Apple wants cash to solve the problem. Since it began occurring  after my last paid OS update, that's BS.

Intel Mac :: Core 2 Duo 17" Doesn't Start Anymore - It Only Stays At The Loading Screen?

Apr 15, 2012

My 2006(ish) Intel core 2duo 2.16 mhz 20"  imac wont start up, it only stays at the loading screen, how can I fix this? I have tried:

• safe mode reboot

• restart using p, r , command and option (resetting the pram)

• restart using the original Mac OS 10.4 disc

• restart so I get the image of the HD but I can't click on it to continue and restart again!     • single user mode (CMD+s keys at bootup, and then /sbin/fsck -fy) 

It just doesn't do anything else than display the grey screen, the apple and the spinning wheel (sometime, I do get a scrolling bar also!). I managed to perform a hardware test from the Mac OS disc and there seems to be no hardware problem. Nothing works.It stays stuck on the grey screen, with the apple and the wheel turning endlessly.

Software :: IMac Hanging - Stop Process At Start Up?

May 21, 2008

I am running the following system:

Apple Macintosh (Intel)
PROC 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

The hanging appears to have been caused when I accidently moved about 40GB of old photo's onto my desktop. Almost immediately I tried to cancel but all that happened is that the system has hung. Processer can be heard working in the background. Being new to MAC I am pretty stumped. Have tried the obvious forced restart using the power on/off button but no luck. Is there a way I can get in and stop this process say at start up?

Intel Mac :: Forgotten The Login Password At Start-up - OS X Lion

Apr 6, 2012

My father who is 91 purchased an iMac in January used it once. He is now just setting it up again after he has recently moved and this will be his only computer… finally getting rid of the PC world of Bill Gates and into a real computer. However, he has forgotten the login password at start-up which was set-up at the Apple Store. Can I reboot the machine with a CD (have one for Snow Leopard) and change administration details this way even though is running OS X Lion?

MacBook Aluminum :: Programs Are Slow Loading?

Aug 10, 2009

just purchased right before he left (Febuary). His computer is now giving him troubles with programs taking ages to load. He said that one program took about 3 hours to load completely. What/any advice can I give him to resolve this issue? He has the warrenty package but since I'm in Alaska, shipping costs are expensive and we'd like to avoid them as much as possible.
