You need to go to System Preferences and then go to the Mouse and Keyboard panes. It should be pretty straightforward from here, just disconnect the keyboard and mouse and then reconnect them in their respective panes. I can't go into anymore detail, because I only have a MacBook, which doesn't use Bluetooth keyboard and mice.

This is probably caused by the famous GPU problem these MacBook have. Do a search on Google for Late 2011 MacBook GPU problems and you will find loads of information about this. Apple finally recognized the manufacturing error and has a program in place to replace the logic board under warranty. I had mine replaced a couple months ago with no costs at all.

For 10.9 and earlier, you could use the application Sleep Monitor. Sleep Monitor is an application I wrote that produces logs and graphs of power on/off, sleep, wake, and battery levels:

Today I suddenly understand... I cannot add these missing files because I have already them in other albums. Maybe it's a big problem for someone, but I just delete albums that are "no so good" and keep "that really rock". So problem solved! Thanks for watching!

The absolute path to the Adobe Reader executable is: /Applications/Adobe Reader.app/Contents/MacOS/AdobeReader Note the space in Adobe Reader and spaces either need to be escaped with a backslash. /Applications/Adobe\ Reader.app/Contents/MacOS/AdobeReader Or quote the fully qualified pathname, but not both.

There is no preference available to control that, but I wonder if you could override the event associated with the Enter key? The following command maps the Enter key to a menu item command. You'd just need to replace the command with "insert new line"... somehow. defaults write com.apple.iChat NSUserKeyEquivalents "{ 'New Message' = '\\U000a'; }" To undo ...

Start off by eliminating variables. Test using speedtest.net in your Mac, and explicitly select the server. Do the same on your phone. Or test using speedof.me on the phone. Otherwise you're comparing apples to oranges - they use different servers.

If you don't want to load some items that usually start on bootup or login, you can startup your machine in safe mode. From Apple document HT201262: Follow these steps to start up into safe mode.

You have Handoff turned on under Settings>General>Handoff & Suggested Apps on your iPhone. Switch off Handoff and you shouldn't see it anymore. Though I would be more concerned with the message to "ransom"....

Okay, so I found out that there is one option that kind of supports Apple's Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad gestures. The Wacom Bamboo Pad allows you to control your Mac with touch gestures and comes in a wired, USB model. If anyone finds another solution, please post it, because I was really looking for a wired mouse that can do this and would appreciate ...

Akmal has released Chrome App that does exactly this. You could take a look at his code to see how he's done it. I would mention that he is running the webview through scan.me, so getting analytics to how many people are visiting it.

It is likely not supported. This article (apple.com) says how to use an iMac as a second display but makes no mention of using a MacBook(Pro) as one. Which usually means it is not supported.

You might have better luck with File Salvage or Data Rescue. Both have free trials. However, as another user said, working from the disk where the files were lost decreases the chances of recovery.


0

All file recovery software does the same thing: searches the disk for places where files are but the catalog says are free. The single most important thing to do to ensure that you can recover an accidentally deleted file is recoverable is to do nothing to the HD. If it is the OS disk then just using the computer runs the risk of the OS writing to some or ...

Unfortunately, this is not possible. The reason you can Airplay with your phone and not your Mac, is due to the fact that the Jawbone Mini app appears to convert the Bluetooth speaker to an Airplay device as shown here. https://jawbone.com/kb/articles/JawboneappiOS.html and here ...

Bluetooth and AirPlay are completely different technologies. You can't send audio over wifi (AirPlay) to a device with only BlueTooth reception. If you want to AirPlay to this particular speaker, you'd need to physically hook it up to an iOS or OSX device or an AirPort Express or create your own AirPort receiver with something like a Raspberry Pi that you ...

Belated answer to one of your side questions: You probably need the discrete GPU enabled to use an external display. The reason why should be in how the GPUs and the video outputs are wired. (I'm half-guessing, half-extrapolating from how the PC laptop graphics switching technology works. It's not an unreasonable assumption that those technologies are ...

I'm not sure what the reason is behind this, or if it's a bug. But generally I've had this occur when I either previously owned that song or uploaded it, or if I downloaded that song as a single (I.e. Free single of the week, etc.). Either way, removing the entire album and any duplicate versions of that song, and then re-adding the album usually fix it for ...

With Find My Mac enabled, someone who found the computer could sign into the guest user, which could then be located via iCloud.

OK, I got this idea: maybe it's the headset that is preventing the pairing from happening (remember I removed the pairing on the Mac, but on the headset it might still be somehow locked with the previous pairing for this specific device). When I read the manual a while ago I remember there was a way to clear the pairing settings. So I did that, and voilá!, ...

Copper-based Thunderbolt cables are limited to max length of 3 meters. Corning sells optical Thunderbolt cables you will need for the distance you specify here. You can get 10m lengths at Amazon for US$299. They come in 30m and 60m lengths for US$659 and US$1299, respectively. I haven't had the need for these lengths yet, but I did the research a few weeks ...

brew install rename rename s/config\./route\.config\./g * First you need homebrew installed. Then install rename, and the above regex renames all files with "config." to "route.config". So say files config.a.js, and config.b.js -> route.config.a.js, route.config.b.js.

I am assuming that you have your 'entire Music Library' downloaded on your Mac. This seems like a simple case. Plug your iPhone into your Mac. Open iTunes Tap the iPhone icon Under the "Settings" section header, click "Music" Click the checkboxes "Sync Music" and "Sync Entire music library"

When you use Apple Music it automatically turns on iCloud Music Library, which lets you add Apple Music tracks to your "My Music" playlist (enabled by Apple Music). This is similar but not completely the same to iTunes Match, so it strips the ability for you to sync your music manually. If you have your existing music backed up, turn off iCloud Music ...

There's an indirect way of copying those photos into the desired album. That's by dragging that folder into photos.app as usual, then opening Last Import album to select those photos and adding them to the desired album ('+' button > Album).

Sounds like a fault, or that perhaps there is a conflict. You are trying to upgrade from 10.7 to 10.10 and its possible you either can't do that, or your machine is incompatible. Although I expect it would tell you as such. In any case, what ever the reason is your only real way forward is to backup with Time Machine if you haven't already onto an external ...

Add your Yahoo! email as IMAP and upload your mail manually from the old —presumably POP— storage on your Mail.app. I haven't tried it myself but in recent OS X versions adding accounts is straightforward. If this is not the case and you have to configure it manually, Yahoo! offers relevant information to that effect here.

Did you see this picture? I was able to get it from iFixit The laptop keyboard won't power up with the lid closed - this is by design. Now, what exactly are you trying to do? Is there a problem with the laptop that requires this "hack" or are you trying to rig your laptop to do something it really wasn't meant to do in the first place?
