This is a design feature documented by Apple. You need to cool your Mac and the processor can then speed up again and do the work you want. See this post on ideas for cooling while in clamshell mode. Any reason not to run my Macbook Pro upside-down in clamshell mode? Open the clamshell and make sure there is good ventilation and you are not blocking the ...

There are a number of posts (here and here) on superuser.sx. To lock the screen (actually invoking the "Login Window…" action from the User menu, and a direct analog to the Win+L shortcut in Windows): /System/Library/CoreServices/Menu\ Extras/User.menu/Contents/Resources/CGSession -suspend To sleep the display (I use this all the time as part of my last ...

I had exactly the same problem, with the same monitor, Dell U2713 / U2713H / U2713HM / U2713HMt. I had two of them plugged in to my late-2014 Retina Macbook Pro 15" and only one was experiencing the problem. I tried 100s of different solutions (I can say for sure it's definitely not the cable!) and nothing worked. Just like you, I could get landscape ...

Whenever you need to activate the login screen click login screen on top right. It will need the login password to open again.

To fix, use the monitor's menu and change Size&Position/Image Size to Screen Fit. (I connected a MacBook Pro 2013 via HDMI to the same monitor and the quality was horrible.)

You won't know until you actually get it and test it. HDMI specs say you should get 5v at 50mA. That's not much to start with. You can read about this more from here. You could get more power but it would have to have MHL (mobile high definition link) support. That will be able to give you up to 40 watts. Now, I looked on the Apple site and it ...

You can find these options in System Preferences > Energy Saver. Drag the "Computer Sleep:" slider to the left. Note that for newer Apple portables, Yosemite combines the sleep and display sleep option: http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/2013-mba-no-computer-sleep-setting-wtf-heres-why.1598329/

This seems not to be possible. I solved the situation now with the help of my dell external displyay. The USB-Hub there can be configured to shut down as soon as the display ist switched off. So the second display and the active speakers are connected to the power plug that can be switched off/on by USB power. This will allow with the klick of one button to ...

I was able to do this with my 2012 15″ rMBP. I just upgraded to the 2015 15″ rMBP and I didn't expect a lesser experience; however, I have not been able to connect the 3rd external monitor successfully yet. I am using 3 1920x1080 monitors connected Thunderbolt → DVI x2 and HDMI → DVI x1. I just achieved a 4 monitor setup (rMBP display included). Here is ...
