OS X V10.7 Lion :: TextEdit Keep Loosing What I Typed

Jun 15, 2012

I just lost a whole hours worth of research. I was typing in text edit and then it started making me duplicate the file at every save and then I had to replace the orginal, and I did this several times until I finally decided to close it down (as it's done this before) and when I opened it up again a whole hours worth of research was missing. I clicked on the Restore button but it hadn't saved any of my research for over an hour.

Is there another way to get that restored?

MacBook Pro :: Anyone Format External Drives In ExFAT Format?

Jan 9, 2011

I'm using Macbook Pro(2010, 10.6.6) and a PC with Windows 7. I need to transfer image files from both laptops to an external drive. I formatted the external drive in exFAT and wanted to know if there are any problems that might occur in the future. I already know there is an issue with such programs as Carbon Copy Cloner. I primarily need the drive for backup of the images and not system backups. Do you have any file corruption or other problems formatting in exFAT?

MacBook Pro :: MBP Battery Loosing Charge When Turned Off?

Oct 28, 2010

I've been a member here for a few years but mainly kept in the background reading about news and other interesting things like mods and discussions.

A few months back I bought a 15 inch 2.4 MBP, the most recent model as far as I'm aware, from the refurb store in the UK and after a few troublesome experiences ( they delivered an iPad to me the first time) I finally got my computer. Ever since, there have been a few problems.

First my Logic board died, handed it in and got it fixed.
Second the Keyboard backlighting wouldn't work, same thing, handed it in and got it fixed.
Now it seems that my MBP can't hold the battery charge when the computer is turned off, which to me seems very strange as it holds the charge perfectly well, 5+ hours although I've never timed it, during normal use.

I recently installed and mce optibay for extra storage since I don't really need the superdrive and it works great. Could this by any chance have anything to do with the drain?

So to summarize my MBp can't hold the charge when computer is turned off but works fine when its on. I have an extra HDD installed where the superdrive used to be via mce optibay and everything else works fine.

MacBook Pro :: CPU Heatsink Difference (Loosing Faster)

Dec 24, 2010

I've been noticing quite a difference in the temperatures of the two so just now I tried something. Running 4 threads of yes > /dev/null for 10 minutes now, I have a CPU temp of 202F and a CPU Heatsink temp of 128F. Thats a difference of 74F now either the heatsink is losing 74F faster than it can build it or something is wrong with the transfer between the two.

MacBook Air :: Bluetooth Mouse Keeps Loosing Connection

Nov 8, 2008

Using a bt500 bluetake bluetooth mouse I keep losing the connection, and not being able to connect at all. The bt500 is super cool. I just got a new one because my old one stopped responding to the left button. Now it seems like every time I use the mba (also super cool) I have some kind of problem. Also the mba has frozen a number of times which never (or extremely rarely) happened with my MBPro and G4. I'm wondering if they've introduce a glitch into bluetooth.

MacBook Air :: Battery Loosing 20 Percent Charge During Sleep

May 7, 2008

After all is said and done, and heavy Macbook Air use, there is only one thing still bugging me. Its not the slightly uneven lighting, not the 3 hours charge nor the 3:30 battery life I get constantly, nor the 6200 RPM fan. When I charge to 100% and let it sleep for 12 hours, I lose about 20% of the charge. Yesterday I was at around 25% and when I opened it this evening, 24hrs later, there was nothing left. If I leave the macbook air closed, I think that the battery would reach 0% after 3 days. This is not normal and some kind of leak.

Mar 27, 2008

I have a Week 01 MacBook Air, and I just started to notice that my MBA has not been performing its best since I bought it.

This morning I at 0745am, but now its 0831 and my battery is now at 53%; is there something wrong? I took a stopwatch and averaged it at about 53-55 seconds where the battery will drop 1%.

According to coconut battery, current battery capacity is 4670 and original battery capacity is 5090, and the system profiler says that I'm at 31 charge cycles. And YES, i've reset the PRAM, PMU/SMC, and calibrated my battery

OS X :: Format External Hard Drive In Apple Partition Map Format?

Nov 5, 2009

I'm running Snow Leopard on my new Macbook Pro. I've got a 1.5TB External hard drive that I'm trying to figure out how to format in HFS+ with Apple Partition Map. I can figure out how to format in HFS using Disk Utility, however it still does it in GUID format and I do not know how to do it in Apple Partition Map.

Googleing this for hours has lead with all kinds of information on how to go to GUID FROM Apple Partition Map but not the other way around. I know GUID is the new hottness.. but this drive will be used exclusively to connect to my XBOX 360 and it supposedly only reads HFS+ when its formatted with Apple Partition Map. (I have tried it with Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with GUID, and the XBOX does NOT recognize it) I do not want to use Fat 32, (I know that that is the other major option) beacuse it limits file size.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Print To Pdf Format Too Big?

May 6, 2012

when I want to create pdf file (from different applications, mostly from word), it creat the pdf file way too larger than the original file. For example, my master thesis in .doc is about 10Mb, however the .pdf file is about 17Mb and when re-saved it in preview and cmpressed the size, it saved it as 11 Mb.

Is there any way how to save/print it to pdf and create smaller file and be able to send it via mail for example? I mean, is it possible to do that with the basic Mac OS X feature, not with some app. 

P.S.: I've found few questions about the same problem here on forum and somewhere else, but the questions were asked in previous versions of Mac OS X. I'm using latest version of everything...

MacBook Pro :: What Video Format (including Embedded Audio) Can Be Viewed By Both OSX Lion Users And PC Users

Mar 22, 2012

I am currently am MBA student and must create projects using power point/ keynote, very often. Many of the power points/ keynotes created by students are informative but lack the ability to hold an audience’s attention (boring). Since I have this wonderful Macbook pro, I would like to create a dynamic keynote presentation which would include clips of audio and video files (I already know about converting keynote to power point). The only problem is, the videos I want to use in the keynote presentation are not able to be manipulated in iMovie (due to their format), and if they where able to be manipulated in iMovie, I’m not sure that PC users would be able to properly view them.

What video format (including embedded audio) is able to be viewed and heard by both OSX Lion users and Windows users?   If this is possible, can anyone suggest a safe application that I can purchase from the apple app store that will allow me to convert video files (including embedded audio) so that it can be viewed by both Lion and PC users? Preferably one that does not need access to the internet in order to convert the files ( I’m on the go allot and use an air card for internet access), but I will take it if this is the best option.  If the app store does not have this type of application, is there a place that I can download a safe one?

OS X :: Backup Solution With Loosing Images

Dec 15, 2010

I'm having a think about my current backup solution as i've recently got into photography and dont want to loose any of my images. I have a 24" imac with a 640GB Hard drive. I do a Bootable Carbon Copy Clone of this drive after i import any new photos or make any drastic changes to any of my library's to a 320GB WD Passport and take it to my parents. Then connected to a airport extreme i have 2 WD Mybook hard drives. Drive A is 1TB and holds all my master RAW images that are on my imac's HD. It also holds things like personal movies and any other documents that are on the imac. The only thing that it holds that are not backed up anywhere are Movies or TV shows.

Also connected to the AE is a 640GB WD Mybook (Drive B) this is purely for time machine backups. The only issue i can see so far is that the WD passport drive is only 320GB so once my imac drive fills up past the 320GB mark i wont be able to do a CCC backup. I'm currently using about 230GB on my imac so have a little time before i need to upgrade that drive. Now, the imac is in our dining room and my wife does NOT want drives hanging off the imac cluttering the place up, hence the reason why there connected to the AEBS and hidden away in a cupboard... Can anyone suggest any improvements that need to be made to my setup?

OS X :: Loosing Sound In IChat And Mail?

Mar 16, 2006

I can't figure this out. A few days ago noticed iChat and Mail were not making any sounds when they were supposed to. I double-checked the settings a few times and everything was right, sound events were suppose to take place. I restarted and it resolved the problem.

Now, a few days later, I'm having the same problem.

OS X :: Loosing File Quality When Resaved It?

Dec 17, 2008

I wasn't sure where to post this, so I hope this is an okay location.

I recently read that if you open up a jpeg file and then resave it, it loses quality. Is this true?

Is it only Jpegs, or all compressed images? Or even yet, all images i.e. Raw?
What other scenario must I be aware of where file quality can be lost? Any with music files, or video files?
