OS X :: Turning Off Memory Function?

Mar 14, 2010

Here's my question: I open a folder (e.g. A) in list view and see all subfolders of A. I then open one of the subfolders (e.g. 1) using the triangle and then see the subfolder's contents. Due to the limited window size I no longer see all other subfolders of A. So far so good.

Now comes my problem: Whenever I open folder A again in list view, be it in two minutes, hours, or days afterwards, I again see the same view I left off, meaning I still see the subfolder 1's contents, but due to the limited window size I again don't see other subfolders. However, most of the time I'm no more interested in the same subfolders and always have to collapse them before seeing ALL of the contents of the folder A.

Is there a way of turning off the "memory" function? I don't want finder to show the subfolders I opened last open again.

OS X :: Hard Drive Memory Disappearing / Memory Reducing At Startup

Aug 26, 2010

I have a iMac DV G3/500 (Special Edition) from summer 2000. Anyway, I am using Mac OS 10.2.8. Recently, my start up disk's memory has gone done from 1.2 GB available free space to 668MB (currently). I haven't saved anything on this disk so I can not understand why this memory has dissappeared. I have also had icons on the start up menu disappear. Could someone please tell me how I can restore the missing memory?

OS X :: Adding Memory And Then Running The Memory Utility Application?

Mar 21, 2009

I just bought a early 2009 MAC Pro and it came with 3GB of RAM, I ordered 3 2GB sticks of memory to replace the 3 1GB sticks that I had in there from Kingston. I turned off the unit, I popped the little levers and pulled the memory out of slot 1, 2, 3 and then replaced the memory with the new Kingston in slot 1, 2, 3

One of the sticks in is not working at all and I get the RED LED light no matter what slot I move that chip to. So I am running on 2 of the new Kingston memory chips.

Can I mix the memory and add the 1GB into slot 3 and 4 with slot 1 and 2 full of 2GB chips?

Also how to I run the memory utility again? I went to /system/Library/CoreServices/ and then I see the program Memory Slot Utility.app

How do I run this? I'm used to no spaces and I type ./then program name

Got a 2008 mac pro which sometimes switches it self on so that it loads up exactly in time for 1:00 at night.

There is no internet connection and all settings that I know of such as system update are off.

MacBook Pro :: Fan Turning On And Off?

Sep 10, 2010

I have an i7 MBP and this morning I discovered that its fan is turning on and off at about 2 second intervals. It only occurs when the lid is closed and (seemingly) when the battery is at full charge (i.e., the mag safe is green). As soon as I open the lid the fan comes on and stays on for 30 seconds or so then shuts off as if the system has cooled. Any ideas what this is about?

PowerPC :: G4 Not Turning On

May 19, 2008

I have an old powermac G4 dual 1.42 the other day I decided to power it up to update it and it would not turn on. I push the power button it lights briefly and goes out. The light stays on if I hold the button down. The fan does not come on nor any noise from inside the case, etc. I have reset the pram, that little button, and I have replaced the battery, I have searched for the problem but nothing seems to fit my exact case. It's not my main computer and I am no where near an apple store and I'd rather fix the problem myself instead of paying an arm and leg for apple to repair it.

OS X :: MacBook Pro Not Turning On

Jan 31, 2010

i'm having a small issue with my computer... Its not turning on

1) If i just press on the power button i just hear the optical drive shifting and then nothing.

2) If i hold down on the power button, the optical drive starts up, the hard drive starts up, the sleep light turns on.. glows a little then faints and nothing.

The screen never turns on in either case and i never hear the start up sound.I had this problem twice already and solved it by reseting the Pram and by trying to turn it on and off a few times ( eventually it just turned on.. ) . But this time i guess that just won't do.

OS X :: Turning Off Mail Authentication?

Jan 10, 2011

We're having problems with the mail app sending mail.

Every link, support forum, etc. says to turn off authentication to fix the problem. However, HOW do you turn off authentication?!

Under Preferences-Accounts-Advanced there is the Authentication drop-down box, which has 5 options: Password, MD5 Challenge-Response, GSSAPI, APOP, and NTLM. I don't see an option for 'None' anywhere!

PowerPC :: IBook G4 Not Turning On

Jan 2, 2007

I have a 12" 1.33Ghz iBook G4 that does not respond when I try to turn it on. Every now and then I can hear the hard drives spin up but after that nothing happens. I've tried to make sure the problem wasn't being caused by my AC adaptor and battery and they seem to be fine. I even tried to remove my third party Crucial 1GB stick of RAM and it still won't work. Is there anything else I can try before I head over to the nearest Apple store?

OS X :: Turning Off Album Art In Front Row?

Dec 3, 2007

Does anyone know how to turn off the album artwork in Front Row? I have some songs I listen to that have some rather disturbing album art that I would prefer not looking at while I listen to the music. Also can you change the settings in Front Row so that the picture doesn't flip back and forth from one side of the screen to another when listening to music? The movement on the screen catches the eye and makes me look at the screen everytime it changes.

Now, recently, he noticed that the green indicator light next to his iSight camera, is always on, even if he just started up his 'Book. If he tries to open Photo Booth, all he gets is not a picture on the Photo Booth window, but in fact, just plain black inside the window, with no error message. Does anyone know what is going on?
