OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: System Sleep After Connecting To Wifi

Jun 30, 2012

For the past week or so my system has developed a really annoying habit of basically killing the wifi connection just about every time the system goes to sleep, either automatically or manually. By 'killing' I mean connection speeds, up & down, are dragged down to miniscule rates. If you can even complete a speed test at all, say with Speakeasy, you might see something like .03 Mbps up, and a bit more than than down. Most of the time it just fails. Page loads are pretty glacial, of course, with many simply failing. Meanwhile, the iPad continues to truck right along on the same APExpress network, so that seems to be good. I was doing Restarts, which did work: All would be back to normal after that. I've subsequently learned that a Restart isn't required, all I have to do is log out of my account, then log right back in, and things are back to normal. I can't figure it out, and don't know what might have changed in the past week or so to cause this. i've never bothered to learn very much about the inner workings and hidden mechanisms of the wireless world (preferring Steve's "It Just Works .." approach to things) and that now leaves me with not much in my bag of tricks.

IMac :: Snow Leopard 10.6.4 Connecting To Windows SBS Server Domain

Aug 19, 2010

I looked for a introduction forum but couldn't see one so hello guys and gals. Great forum you've got here..Right my issue is as follows.I have a new iMac Pro on snow leopard 10.6.4 and it is linked to a Windows SBS server 2007 but i don't think i've done it properly.When i switch the machine on all i get on boot up is 1 local user Sometimes i can leave it and it will offer me the 'Other' option which i can then login to the server But most times it doesn't to that... I have to logon as that local user and then unbind the windows domain and rebind it then when i logoff it shows me the 'Other' user Also another thing thats annoying is it doesn't map anything automatically i have had to create a alias icon on my desktop to go to my server space and it can take up to a minute to connect to the server..

Hardware :: Connecting Old Surround Sound Speakers To MBP

Aug 14, 2009

I've got some old Altec Lansing surround sound speakers (4 + subwoofer) that I'd like to connect to my MBP, but I can't figure out what sort of adapter I'd need.

At the back of the subwoofer there's an empty port called "Diag," and two 3.5mm (it looks like) audio cords coming out of an "Input" port. I'm only used to dealing with singe 3.5mm cords.

IMac :: System Freezes And Running Very Slow With Snow Leopard

Mar 25, 2010

I have a 20" iMac mid 2007 2.4Ghz, 320GB, 2Gb machine running Snow Leopard. Today I turned it on and it was running fine. But around three hours of using it suddenly froze. I had to force the turn off using the power button. When i turned it back on it took about 4 mins to get to the login screen. Once I logged in the spinning wheel came up and the only think that loaded was the Spotlight sign. This kept happening until about the third time of turning it off and on. When it finally completed login. But it is now extremely slow and it just about freezes when I open more than one application.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Connecting To A Remote Server

Mar 21, 2012

I am tryiing to connect to a remote desktop servere which , I think, is Windows based.  I know the IP address which, for example, is

When I type this into the "connect remote server" (Finder>Go> Connect remote server) Apple adds a prefix   afp://  .   In the "missing manual" book by David Pogue he suggests the prefix ought be   smb://  for a windows server.  Either way, a dialogue box informs me that attempt has failed whem I try to connect

OS X :: Snow Leopard - Connecting To Windows File Share?

Aug 31, 2009

On tiger, I could connect to windows file shares quite easily, if I recall:

1. in Finder, use "Go" -> "Connect to Server"
2. Enter smb://servername/sharename
3. Click "Connect"

In Snow Leopard, I do this and I'm prompted for a login, but it WILL NOT take my windows domain / username and password.

OS X :: Directory Access When Connecting Snow Leopard And Windows XP?

Apr 6, 2010

I have recently bought a Mac Book Pro. This is my first experience with a modern computer from Apple and in very first contact with Mac OS "Snow Leopard".

I am trying to configure that Mac to share the resources of my Windows XP small network at home. For that I have followed several instructions I found published on the Internet by other Mac users who were trying to do exactly the same as I am trying to do.

Unfortunately I face a quite basic problem all the time: when I follow any of the posts/ instructions, sooner or later, I cannot move forward because I cannot find where exactly the DIRECTORY ACCESS (or any functionally equivalent configuration program like that) in Mac OS Snow Leopard is located.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Not Connecting To Wifi On Macbook Pro / Get It To Work?

Aug 23, 2010

I reformatted my macbook pro with Snow Leopard installed about half a week ago and it has stopped connecting to our wifi. The icon it shows for wifi is no bars with a '!'. It sees our Internet in the menu bar but fails to connect properly. I have tried resetting the PRAM, that does nothing. All other computers in the house can connect to it. I've tried turning the laptop, airport and our house's Internet off and on again. None of this has worked. Any ideas?

IMac :: How Do You Connect To Surround Sound

Jan 15, 2009

I have looked through the threads here ENDLESSLY!!!! And I, unfortunately, still seem to be at a loss on what to do.

As of right now, I have a headphone output going to the Red and White RCA analog to my surround sound input just like the ones here
The headphone male end is going into the very far left headphone jack of my iMac. I have a 5.1 surround sound system and I know that this isn't being used to it's full potential.

I am not fully sure on what to do with the Audio in / optical audio in port... If I connect a fiber optic cable to that into my digital input on my surround sound, is that all I need? (this?) No RCA plugins or anything....?

Also, I have read endlessly on the FireWave and I am not really sure what the point of that is...? I don't know how it comes into play with hooking up my surround sound system to my iMac.

I have the Sony HT-DDW670

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Snow Leopard Install Disk Works In IMac But Not In MacBook Pro?

Mar 31, 2012

I have a Snow Leopard Install Disk for the 13-inch Macbook Pro model.I also have a 21-inch iMac. I have OS X Lion installed on both. I have Snow Leopard installed as a partition on my Macbook Pro, which I installed via the install disk. I want to do the same thing for my iMac but I am unable due to (seemingly) my install disk is for a Macbook Pro and not for an iMac.

IMac :: 5.1 Surround Sound - How To Use Speaker Setup

Dec 11, 2010

I have a creative 5.1 speaker setup and just recently found my old sound blaster external card from my PC from years ago. I went on the creative website to try and download drivers for it and their weren't any (surprise, surprise). So I've been trying to figure out how to use my speaker setup so I can watch movies from iTunes in 5.1 surround sound. When I plug in the card through USB the sound tab in the system preferences reads it as the SB Live! card (which it is).

Then when I go to the Audio MIDI Setup, it also reads the card and the speakers I have connected to it. When I go the configure speakers tab, it shows them and all when I click on them to test them, it shoots out noise through each speaker. But when I go back to iTunes and enable surround sound in a movie, nothing happens. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Is there any software I can download so I can use my speakers?

Hardware :: Finding Best Surround Sound On New IMac I7

Nov 29, 2009

I just purchased (ships the 11th) a new iMac i7. I have been using Dells for years to game with and Macs to work with, and have decided I am not tolerating PC nonsense anymore and moving to my Mac full-time (yay for Bootcamp).

I have some old Dell 5.1 speakers that I am retiring, but I am a bit flummoxed on a good set of 5.1 speakers that will work with my Mac. (I do not want to use the Firewave or an external sound card

The Logitech Z-5500 look like they will do the trick with a Toslink To Optical Mini Adapter.

However, that is pricey for speakers. Do any of you know of some decent 5.1 Surround Sound speakers for the single mini port on the Mac?

OS X :: Tiger To Snow Leopard Options In A System?

Oct 31, 2010

In the process of doing clean install from tiger to leopard and I'm running into some issue. 1st attempt - was stuck on initial "Install" screen (After I erased my HD and selected drive to install but before the Install screen changes to show the status of the install remaining) for 35 minutes. I stopped the install and restated.2nd attempt - Finally got to the progress bar, 28 minutes remaining. However, it didn't move from there. I checked the Installer Log and it kept trying to install printer drivers and foreign fonts, but unsuccessful. Finally got an error message stating install was not complete. Restart.3rd. attempt - This time I unchecked printer drivers and fonts. Progress bar stated 18 minutes, now it's down to 17 (after like 10 minutes) and according to the Installer Log I keep getting errors in stuff (Error writing caches to /Volume/...., Input/output error, Failed to enumerate /Volumes/...., Cannot prune("com.apple.user*pictureCache*"). However, according to the progress bar, it keeps moving through the processes, still show 18 minutes now.
