OS X :: Macbook Shuts Down Suddenly

Mar 19, 2010

This started about 2 days ago, there was no apparent signs of such a thing going to happen.

My MacBook suddenly shuts down in the middle of my work. Shut down as in a sudden shut down, as if the battery was removed. There is no shutdown process, the whole screen just goes black. I've realized that this happens more recently when watching youtube videos, playing flash games etc.

Example : Computer dies in 10 minutes when watching videos/playing games. Computer dies in a few hours or NEVER when just typing, surfing.

It doesn't seem to be a battery problem. I've removed the battery and had my Macbook run on the Charger before, and it still died on me...

Hardware :: Macbook Suddenly Shuts Off And Doesn't Power On Again

Mar 2, 2008

I've had my macbook for about 15 months. i noticed a while ago it had trouble turning off completely when running only on the battery. then a few weeks ago it shut itself off and wouldn't start up again. the power cord indicator was orange, but nothing worked. ordered a new battery, that didn't help. tried a different power cord - nada. i took it in to an apple repair shop and they said something about the internal power connector (i'm not a techy) and took 2 weeks to repair. i've had it back 3 weeks now and the same thing has happened. only this time there is no indicator light on any of the power adapters. and my partially charged batteries do not work on their own either.

any ideas? i don't want to keep fixing the same thing and every few weeks it keeps breaking again. i mean, what's the point in having the computer then, right??

IMac PPC :: G4 Starts Up Then Suddenly Shuts Down?

Apr 23, 2012

I have an old g4 , the kind shaped like half a golf ball, which starts up and then quits at different places during the process. Sometimes with the gray screen and Apple logo, sometime later when the OS has fully installed,but fails quite rapidly after that. Then tries to reboot itself with varying degrees of failure.

PowerPC :: Dual 2.0 Powermac G5 Suddenly Shuts Down

Mar 1, 2007

I have a Dual 2.0 Powermac G5 that has been shutting down without notice. It first started doing this every couple of days. I'd have to let the computer sit for a few hours before it would run again. Now it does it more and more frequently and stays running ofr less and less time. As of now, it will only stay on for 15 minutes before suddenly shutting down.

PowerPC :: IBook G4 Suddenly Shuts Down With No Warning

Nov 5, 2007

I was hoping you could get me started in the right direction. My wife has an iBook G4 which lately, while using a full battery, just turns off suddenly. There is no warning and it never does it when it's plugged in. The battery looks like it's almost fully charged - at least that's what the meter in the menu says, so I don't know what's going on.

Could you possibly give me some steps to go through to try and figure this out?

The first step she wants to try is to get a new Intel MacBook, but I'd like to try a couple of other things first!

IMac :: Suddenly Shuts Down - Screen Warm

May 25, 2009

I received my new iMac on May 20. It is a 3.06 with an ATI card. I have not had much time to use it until this evening. I had been been setting up some bookmarks in Safari and then was working on a spreadsheet for about an hour when it suddenly shut down. The power strip in which it was plugged in still had it's light on. The iMac is the only item plugged into the strip. I then felt around the screen, the bottom section was cool but the top was rather warm.

The temperature in the air conditioned house is 71�F. Programs open at the time were Safari - which was on an idle screen as I had logged out of a site. Two sessions of Finder Entourage Excel - which I was actively using. Is this an over temp shutdown? I recall some people posting the temperature of their Macs. Are there any monitors on the iMac to see how hot it is running? There were no warnings that it was going to shut down.

MacBook Pro :: Screen Suddenly Go Black (Dimly Lit) Music Will Stop

May 21, 2012

I'll be using my Macbook Pro and the screen will suddenly go black (but still dimly lit), my music will stop, and I can hear that the computer is still "on". I have to press the power button to shut it off and turn it back on. Usually it comes back on slowly and is fine.Just a few minutes ago, the same thing happened, however the screen went blank white instead of black. The music stopped, and the computer was still "on" but I couldn't do anything until I turned it off and back on.

Hardware :: Mouse Buttons Suddenly Stop Working?

Nov 13, 2010

For a while now I've had a recurring problem that I can't figure out. The buttons on my mouse will suddenly stop working; I can move the cursor around the screen, but the mouse buttons (all of them, plus the scrollball) do nothing.

It's not a problem with the mouse (so it might not belong in this forum), because I've tried other mice and had the same behaviour. I don't know if there's a pattern, but I think I've only had the problem since I've started running the new Football Manager 2011 game.

Applications :: Network Setup Would Suddenly Stop Working?

Feb 15, 2009

I have had my iPhoto library on a USB drive attached to Time Capsule for some time with no problems. I recently upgraded to iPhoto '09, and still had no problems, so not sure that's related. The library updated ok, and I played with Places and indexed some Faces over more than one session, no problems. Upgraded iPhoto on all the macs and tested their access to the library ok.

Suddenly now, none of the network macs can open the library. iPhoto launches with no pictures visible and has a spinning beechball. I have to Force Quit iPhoto. Same on all macs.

I then copied the library from the networked drive locally to a mac, and iPhoto could then open it perfectly ok. So I guess the library is not corrupt either.

Any ideas why this network setup would suddenly stop working?

OS X :: Trackpad Hand Gestures Suddenly Stop Working?

Feb 8, 2010

I restarted my MBP to install some updates and when I started working on it again I noticed that the trackpad gestures had stopped responding. This has happened to me before but I have no idea why. I know that when I reboot it again, that they will start working again, but it's annoying to restart everytime the gestures stop working.

Safari :: Hyperlinks Suddenly Stop Working When 2 Or 3 Tabs Opened?

Mar 20, 2012

I may have 2 or 3 Tabs open and decided to open another, example Amazon. I start to look around and 'say' I want to find a CD cover to make a copy of to paste onto something, I find said CD and then all of a sudden nothing works, no hyper links, zero. The only way I can them to work again is to copy the present page I am on, open a new Tab, paste the link in and all works again? But the not the original Tab. Plus if I try the 'ctrl _ T/pad' to open the options you then get (to then copy subject for one) nothing, yet I tried this in Google Chrome just to test and see if that works and it does. As I was even writing this everything suddenly stop, could not even 'highlight' some of the text and copy (cmd + C) .........

Software :: Mouse And Keyboard Work Momentarily - Suddenly Stop Responding

Jul 26, 2008

I have a PowerMac Dual G4 @ 500mhz that has issue with waking up from sleep. Running Tiger 10.4.11 with a fresh install of it on there. 512mb memory populating all 4 slots. I've verified permission, verified the HDD via disk utility. I've also run MacOSXmemtest that I purchased and that came up clean. I've also reset the PMU. When I wake the computer up from sleep it will usually wake up to a display and then the mouse and keyboard work momentarily (USB MS keyboard and Logitech Mouse) and then I'll get the beachball of death. The mouse and keyboard will then stop responding completely. I have to manually restart the computer but it seems to work great if it doesn't go into sleep.

I recently installed a VPN.

The performance through the VPN is badly affected by the Airport scanning regularly; often the VPN hangs.

I have deleted the unnecessary wireless networks listed in the Advanced button under Network Preferences. However, the problem persists.

Can you advise how to either stop the scanning or stop it interfering with Internet connection?

MacBook :: Pro Shuts Down On Its Own / Why Is This?

Dec 9, 2009

I'm considering buying a used MacBook Pro (early 2008) from a seller on eBay. The seller disclosed "Sometimes the machine shuts down after startup" but adds that he does not know why.

Does this sound like something anyone has encountered and if so, was it serious?

MacBook Pro :: It Shuts Down At 10%

Apr 10, 2012

My computer started to shut itself down without warning at around 10% battery power when my battery was bad. I bought a new battery, which works fine, but the problem persists. The computer does never tell me that battery is low or anything; it simply shuts down at 10% without warning and I can't seem to be able to do anything about it.

MacBook Air :: It Shuts Off And Cannot Start

Jul 5, 2012

I have a late 2010 MacBook Air.Unfortunately, I'm in a country without an Apple store or any kind of official Apple support (no phone number to call).

2 days ago, I plugged in a little USB modem device (wireless is rare here) and my laptop shut down suddenly. It refused to restart at all until I did an SMC reset and then it was working fine (including with the USB modem plugged in).

However, the next day, the same shut-down occurred (when I plugged in the modem again) and now SMC reset is not doing anything. I've held down the start button for a very long time and there aren't any signs of life. The light on the charger shows that it is charging when I plug it in.

Info:MacBook Air (13-inch Late 2010)

MacBook Pro :: Shuts Off Unexpectedly

Jun 4, 2014

As of a few days ago my MacBook Pro has been acting oddly. When I shut the clamshell and reopen it again a few minutes (or hours) later it's hot and makes sounds as if it is working hard at something but the display will not turn on. I usually end up turning it off anf then on again via the power button. I have a wireless keyboard attached due to damage to the laptop's own keyboard, but use the laptop's power button (which still functions). I've reattached, and reset, the keyboard a few times in case that was the problem but had no luck. It doesn't hinder my usage of the computer once it's on again but it is strange.

MacBook Pro
