I ran into this issue as well on my iMac, but since I have dev servers running in a VM all the time, I don't put my machine to sleep, so for me, the problem was fixed by how I am using my Mac. However, I also have a MBP where this problem would crop up every now and then; especially when the MBP would go to sleep. However, you may wish to try enabling and ...

It appears to be a common issue until ~ OS X 10.10.3. I'd say your only option is to upgrade when it comes out or do a clean install of 10.10.2 and see if that works out for you. I can understand that you'd rather not do a clean install but it does actually solve a lot most of the time.

Do you have 2-factor authentication set in your Gmail account? Sometimes, this seems t lose the password for a device with symptoms like yours. If that's the case, a solution is to go to your Gmail account settings (at Google, not on your MBP), revoke the password for the MBP and create a new one

I'm going to elaborate on the answers given so far (the answer + associated comments above) in case you or someone needs more details. Screen Sharing is what Apple calls the VNC / remote desktop technology built into OS X for many years now. I'm assuming your machine is running 10.10 Yosemite. Instructions for earlier versions of OS X are similar. Screen ...

USE THE WIRED KEYBOARD - Maximus put me on the right path - my iMac wouldn't respond to the startup key sequences using the Bluetooth keyboard; the wired keyboard worked perfectly. My DVD drive doesn't work, so I tried making a bootable usb hard drive and then a bootable usb flash drive from my Snow Leopard Installation DVD, and couldn't get the iMac to see ...

Here's something to try... If your Mac Pro has issues with booting from USB but will boot from a DVD, create a DVD from the USB installer. If you know how to do this then ignore the rest, grab a dual-layer DVD and get cracking. If not, read on... First, mount your USB installer and then go to Disk Utility. Highlight the partition Install OS X Yosemite on ...

It is probably your video card. The 2007 MBP's were prone to this. Here is how you can tell. Download the Ultimate Boot CD. Burn it to a DVD or a USB Stick You will launch Linux with a ton of useful diagnostic tools. Run everything, but especially the video display diagnostic tool. Mine was throwing errors and I was able to definitively find the cause ...

I don't have sufficient to add comment so I'll add an answer: "OBS, Mac Pro" on Apple's web site means it's the original Mac Pro released in 2006, this is the official name used by AppleCare and GSX. As such, the officially supported OS X version for the Mac Pro is 10.7.5. Unofficially, this Mac Pro can be hacked to run later OS X given a proper graphic ...

It is possible to upgraded a MacPro1,1 to Yosemite, but it is a bit of work and not perfect. You will have to add a third-party new boot loader software, and most likely upgrade the graphics card. A number of OS X -- mostly minor -- features will not be available. This is almost like building a Hackintosh, but Apple will not consider you as violating OS X's ...

There is only one available 2.66 GHZ Quad-Core Intel Xeon Mac Pro, which actually is powered by two 2.66 GHz dual core Intel Xeon 5150 processors: MacPro1,1 The maximum OS is Mac OS X 10.7.5, if the RAM was upgraded to at least 2 GB.

Your "G5" is actually a Mac Pro, judging from your serial number (VERY useful info, thanks) according to appleserialnumberinfo.com, link here. Assuming the info is correct, yes you can upgrade to the current OS X, Yosemite. The best way to check is to go to About This Mac from the Apple menu, and select the More Info option. In Hardware Overview you will ...

My Snow Leopard 10.6.8 disk from my old MacPro 1,1 is now on my MacPro 5,1. Yes, it boots. I don't use it much anymore, but since there are 4 HD bays, I just keep it there.

As 10.6.8 is supported on both Mac Pros the simple answer is yes, you can transfer your disks over to the newer Mac Pro and your installation will work as it did before. Assuming you don't do something silly like accept the free update to Yosemite (which is supported on the Mac Pro 3,1) you will be able to move the disk back to the older machine if you need ...

Checking the specs of the the MacPro1,1 you should be able to upgrade to 10.7.5 if you upgraded it to at least 2 GB of RAM and you don't need Rosetta (for PPC-apps). Since the preinstalled system on the MacPro 3,1 was 10.5.1 and both are equipped with a SATA (3 Gb/s) internal HD-interface, there shouldn't be any problem to move the "old" disks. Your disks ...

To get things right, you want your Mac Pro being without monitor and use the small 13" screen from your MacBook Air for that reason AND you want to do graphics work? Despite my personal opinion, that for serious graphics work a 13" display is a good laugh, Retina display or not and that most work in Photoshop is done by the GPU and not the CPU, there are ...

I'm afraid not, the Air wouldn't work as an external display. Also, the Air isn't retina. Your best bet may well be to run your Pro through an HD TV, which although isn't quite as nice as a Retina display, it is certainly better than a normal display.
