There is another solution approach using the tool SleepWatcher by Bernhard Baehr. com.apple.discoveryd is just getting unloaded before sleep and loaded again after wake (see post by tseug in "Wake reason: RTC (Alarm) - how to deactivate?"). # author: tseug (see link above) # /Library/LaunchDaemons/de.bernhard-baehr.sleepwatcher.plist <?xml version="1.0" ...

Onyx lets you change the filename of screenshots.

http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/23001/deeper works to change destination and filename where you want your screenshot to be saved as. Works with Yosemite. Dead simple.

One approach that's forward compatible and will not get overwritten in an OSX update is to create a script that does ls -l Screen*.png (on the correct directory of course, I'm writing generically) if the list is empty the script exits, if not it uses mv to rename the file (and optionally move it if you also want to, you wouldn't need to since the renamed ...

To turn off the power to your "self made USB cooling fan" (nice one) you need to put the mac mini to hibernate mode not to sleep mode. In Terminal (found in Applications -> Utilities) type sudo pmset hibernatemode 1

When connecting an external display to a MacBook Pro (MBP), sometimes you'll get lucky, and both electronic devices will recognize each other and adjust their own settings properly, and the laptop will be displayed on the TV. However, this doesn't always happen. When it doesn't... First, always check and make sure the external display (TV in your case) is ...

The CPU in the Mac Mini late 2014 is not capable of driving a display at 4K at 60Hz. This Intel Quick Reference Guide, under the "Display and Audio Features Comparison" section, lists the Intel Iris 5100 (the graphics chip in the Mini) in the second column. Cross referencing this with "Maximum Display Resolution" in the first row, you see that the H-series ...

I have separated my data onto different drives, using RAID for integrity and availability. The core Yosemite with actual data in use does not exceed 60 GB of space. I use time machine with a cheap Lexar 64GB USB3 stick, connected to a USB2 port. Time machine runs without any noise - NAND is silent, no moves of the head, no spinning of the drive - or ...

There is a rule of thumb about 2-3x or 2-4x larger Time Machine partition than what is being backed up. So, depending upon your drive/data size, a suitable SDCard may be available. However, I would worry as well about the speed of an SDCard doing Time Machine backup. Either the card reader/controller might be slow or the SDCard media might be slow. So, ...

Judging from MS driver download sites http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/d/wireless-mouse-5000 & http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-gb/p/wireless-comfort-desktop-5000#support they will be natively supported in anything newer than 10.7. If not, try those drivers.

Yeah, even Microsoft itself says it's compatible with OSX !

Per Apple's iTunes 12.0.1 support article, OS X v10.7.5 (last version of Lion) is the minimum requirement for iTunes 12, which in turn is required to sync a device that is running iOS 8. Based on this, it can be done. Not sure if I'd want to (performance may be horrendous in iTunes on hardware that is closing in on a decade old, and that wasn't particularly ...

Yes, You'll be able to upgrade your iPad if your desktop is running OS X Lion. iPad 2 supports iOS 8. All you need to do is to run iTunes 12 to upgrade, which can be downloaded from the Apple website.

The general answer is your Mac Mini 2014 has two Thunderbolt 2 ports so your best bet is to drive one monitor from HDMI and the other from Thunderbolt so that you have another Thunderbolt port free for storage or networking. Out of the box, fully supported by Apple is either two displays via Thunderbolt (and they can chain if one of the display is ...

You connect two monitors to a Mac Mini via two separate ports; one monitor for one port. It sounds like with both your monitors you'd like to connect via VGA. So then you'd need: Thunderbolt Mini display port to VGA adapter. HDMI to VGA adapter.

While you can't run an older Mac OS X version on hardware that predates it (driver issues) if you must run Snow Leopard on newer OS X hardware consider installing it under the free VirtualBox virtual machine. It runs Snow Leopard and Snow Leopard Server just fine, albeit slightly slower. Make sure you have adequate RAM.

Were you ASD safe? If not there is a good possibility you had some static discharge that shorted the board or the memory. Actions to take: Does it let you reset PRAM? Try unplugging the Mac mini and holding the power button down for 10 sec. Apple and others may say you do not need to hold the power button down but I have found with some models or issues it ...

You can not install older OS X versions on newer models, the old OS X version are missing the required drivers for hardware not even available when the OS X version was released. I see several options: You may (legally) install 10.6.8 Server in a VM (Parallels or VMware) though. The latest MacMini supporting 10.6.8 is the MacMini4,1: Apple Mac mini "Core ...

I've tried it with 3 displays, but no go. Any combination of 2 displays work, but not 3 at the same time.

Delete the keyboard prefs file at /Library/Preferences/com.apple.keyboardtype.plist & reboot. That should allow you to try again with the setup. The layout you're looking for [I think] is this one for British PC, which looks correct for my standard UK PC extended keyboard.

The 2012 server is much more powerful than the gimped high end 2014 version and has beaten it in speed tests, too. You cannot install your own RAM in the 2014 model. You would see no difference in regard to playback between the two, a MacBook Air i5 could handle that task just as ably. Where you will see the difference is with conversion times and ...

I don't know if this helps but I had a similar problem installing Win8.1 on a second drive in my 2010 macmini server , I just used the Windows Tools avaialble when installing Win8.1 to delete and repartition the drive and format, worked like a charm, I did boot off a Win8.1 DVD as I hadn't hacked Bootcamp , just hold down option key while starting or ...
