I just started having the same issue. Right click will work, the cursor will move around, but left click will not. Connecting a mouse to my MacBook will also not produce any results. Any ideas? The console log isn't really showing any issues either.

Yes, you'll use an app like Caffeine and use it's timer or script a watcher to remove Caffeine's power assertion after the time you specify. You can use the command line peset -g assertionslog to watch the progress of the machine into and away from sleep. You might even be able to use pmset to hard code the behavior you wish after reading the manual page a ...

To solve data corruption, have users log out. Also, empower users to know if their backups are current and make it their responsibility to self-service restore activities. To minimize restart times, have users restart the macs and sleep them when the login screen arrives (assuming you don't have auto-log in enabled). This makes much more sense to me since ...

Just my 5c, may have nothing to do with, just a wild guess. I have attached an encrypted USB harddisc with no OS to my MacPro. Every time I reboot, I need to press ALT for the boot dialogue, otherwise my MacPro is stuck within a white screen. When I detach the USB harddisc and reboot, no problem. So how about just detaching all peripherals and try booting ...

What you see as 'already completed with User A info' is the auto-complete feature. You can change user in the App Store following this: Open the App Store app MenuBar > Store > Sign Out... MenuBar > Store > Sign In... Delete info in Apple ID and Password fields Enter User 'B' info and press Sign in

This seems to be a six months old thread, however I just wanted to add a quick if not very elegant workaround to this problem. I'm using Parallels Desktop 10.2.1 on Yosemite 10.10.3 running on Mid-2010 15" MacBook Pro and I seem to be affected by the weird clicking noise, even if the sound in my Mac is muted. The workaround I found is to plug and then ...

You can compare the serial number on the bottom of the laptop casing to the serial number shown in System Report by going to Apple Menu -> About This Mac. When I worked at Apple, it was known that replacement logic boards would carry the new SN (naturally) and that cases from the old SN would link to the new one. The serial on the laptop itself is the ...

You will be amazed what can collect in the headset socket over the years, hindering its proper functioning. Giving them an occasional good cleaning will keep them running. First, use a tooth pick and try to remove anything that could be stuck in there. Next use a q-tip soaked with alcohol and swipe in there to clean the contacts.

Open terminal and use diskutil list to find the disk number of the SD card. Then change disk2 below to the number, making sure you physically disconnect any disks you can't afford to erase if you make a mistake with the numbers. diskutil eraseDisk MS-DOS UNTITLED disk2

sometimes there is a tiny tab on the SD adapter (or standard SD card) that prevents read/write to the card. Make sure this isn't set to "lock." Otherwise: What version OS are you running? Can you write or delete files from the card?

Do you have a system report hanging around from before the repair? If so, you could compare things like the AirPort MAC address (or any info cached on your router), any Thunderbolt specific addresses that appear. You could use something like this to see if the logic board has a newer manufacture date?

I had this problem too. Fortunately had an identical (working) macbook pro in the house. It was the HD cable. Note that the cable from my other macbook pro looked a little different, but the connectors were the same and it worked ok in the newer macbook pro unibody 13".

Make sure the IDLE command is selected in Mail > Preferences > Accounts > Account in question > Advanced", if supported by your server.It's not the same as 'Push', but can speed up Mail delivery.

Once in a while (like 3 months or more) you should recalibrate the batter charge percentage. The reason is each time it charges it uses the previous value as basis (and it is a assumption that one was correct) so the error accumulates. So once in about 3-6 months, you should let your computer shut down because of a´batter warning. Now you did that it it ...

In Mail there is a Activity view. Turn it on and see what is happening. It looks like this All the bars should disappear with in a 1-2 minutes. Also check in the Mail preferences the setting for how frequently to check for Mail. Hope it is not set on 15 minutes but more frequently.

This has worked for me so far under Snow Leopard, I’m currently away from home and won’t be able to test this on Yostemite for quite a while: mkdir foo sudo mv NastyDir foo/NastyDir sudo ln -s foo/NastyDir . Now reboot and log in. sudo rm -rf NastyDir foo/NastyDir Reboot, log in, and find that there are no NastyDirs to be found.

Deliberately Removed Apple have removed the Computer slider from the Energy Saver settings. This is deliberate. The decision is related to Apple's introduction of improved hardware, Power Nap support, and the engineers' belief that OS X is best placed to manage the computer's power state. If you would like to see this slider return, provide feedback to ...

Go to Preferences → Network → Wi-Fi → Advanced → DNS and remove any previous DNS servers that were listed. Apple then automatically sets default ones or uses the ones provided by your network. I think the flush dscacheutil does not flush any old DNS name servers and inhibits Internet access.

You can do that by shutting down your computer, then when you turn it on press and hold command+option+R and wait a while (normally about 5 mins) Once your in Internet Recovery go to disk utility and format your drive. After you have done that go to Install OS X and follow the instructions. This will create an clean install. Once you do that shutdown the ...

Essentially it is not a light but is simply a hole covered with a piece of plastic. LED which are used as your screen backlight serve as the actual light for the apple mark, so the apple mark is not lit on when the screen is not lit on. In short, a crack in Apple mark will is not going to influence your Macbook in any way.

Ok, my advice is that u should unlink your email accounts and iCloud accounts from your MacBook Air. These unlink operation are to be done on MBA's side. Here is how I reached this conclusion: securityd handles cryptographic operations on OS X. All processes communicate with securityd through SecurityAgent. That fact that these two are not throwing error ...

I've had some success by installing XCode, then installing the associated hardware IO tools, which include the bluetooth explorer. The bluetooth explorer makes available tools..audio options, which lets you tune some settings. The settings I found useful were to increase the bitpool (which appears directly related to audio quality), and to increase the ...

You can also tune the BlueToothAudioAgent by installing the bluetooth explorer that comes with XCode, and then within that, selecting tools..audio options. This gives a few more options, which are no doubt all also able to be set via the command line. There are also tools..audio graphs that you can look at to see what's going on. I found that tuning the ...

You could get a brand new SSD disk and install OS X on it, carefully clean wipe the current one. In addition you could get EFI and SMC firmware from Apple. https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT1557 https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201518 The before you do anything (since the malware could creep right in again) install something like LittleSnich and block ...

I just ran into this as well. When booting from a USB disk that seemed to be bootable, it would display a "no" symbol ( e.g. ⃠ ...) after trying to boot into it and would then boot into the OS.

That will depend on what kind of analytical/measurement tools do you have? Oscilloscope, Volt meter ect...

There are two ways to send content via AirPlay from your Mac to your Apple TV when it comes out of the box. The first is the Mirroring method, found, as you mentioned, in the Menu Bar on OS X and in the Control Centre on iOS. As far as the in-app method goes, the only app that supports that is iTunes. There should be an AirPlay icon at the top of the window ...

First, boot into single user mode/verbose mode. If the problem persists, its hardware. The hardware problem can be as simple as a loose connector between keyboard and logic board. I had experience with a malfunctioning trackpad on my no-retina MBP 13'. The cause was that the connector came loose and only some lines of signals were fed into the system. I ...

To me that looks like possible hardware problem (the GPU). You can try the Safe mode to see if the problem persist. Also you can try and log in as different user. You can reset the PRAM, and run the Apple Hardware test. Last not least you can reinstall the OS. All above will test for software problems. There is one hardware test you can do and it is to ...

Let me suggest you the Macbook Pro and let me explain why. For me the most important thing developing with xcode is the screen resolution. You usually have two or more xcode panels open, so, more resolution means more space and let you be more agile and productive. Plus, if you use the simulator to test programs, you will want to have it in the same screen. ...

I find that the flexibility of being able to move around in the house makes it worth getting a laptop. Mobile freedom is really addictive once you get used to it. The only issue is that, for coding, having a ton of screen real-estate is advantageous. Obviously the iMac has the MacBook Pro beat in that regard, but you could get a cheap external display for ...

Turns out it's not a Mac thing -- it's a "feature" of the Acer monitor. In the monitor's menu, disable "Detect Video." Confused me for a bit, was glad to discover I'm not going crazy.

Unfortunately, there is no shortcut to switch between fullscreen windows of the same application. You have two alternatives that are not ideal but enough: Shortcuts to switch between spaces/desktops or jump to a specific one Gestures to switch between spaces/desktops To make this workflow work well, just put your fullscreen windows side by side.

I finally found !! You need to buy dp1.2 to hdmi2.0 (4k support) active converter like below. http://www.kwshop.co.kr/detail_view2.html?Cat=11&cate=306&stockno=15594 ($30) Older macbook air support only 1.1 so you can't use 4k but by this converter (+hdmi cable) you can use QHD 2560*1440 monitor that has hdmi port.

This is not meant to be an answer, but a comment, since I don't know of a shortcut (but for some strange reason I'm not allowed to comment with less than 50 points reputation): apart from Mission Control, there also is the Dock, which when clicked repeatedly will cycle through the application's full screen spaces.
