If you're lucky, you have enabled fast-switching to Assistive touch. Try triple-clicking the Home-button. If there's an option called AssistiveTouch popping up, click it and you'll find where you can put it to sleep or power off by holding the lock screen button. If not, there isn't really any other options. You could try this tips I got at the Apple ...

Go to settings general then accessibility. Turn bold text on and it will reboot your iPhone and fix a springboard crash. I was having the same problem and lucked out and found this!

The Mac models that support this have a secondary processor, independent of the CPU (it's the LOM on Intel Xserves, SMC on regular Macs). Basically, the secondary processor can have a countdown timer set up, and reset the CPU (forcing a reboot) if the counter hits 0. Meanwhile, a process running within OS X (originally it was a program called watchdog, but ...

This is a shot in the dark but worth checking, since it is so specific time wise, have you maybe by accident set up an automatic restart under the Energy Saver? Open Preferences Open Engery Saver Click on Schedule

In general, an iOS app is stateless. Whether it's running or not, only the core iOS scheduler knows if a process is loaded into RAM and running or paused, suspended, or "frozen" to storage. If you are referring to the list of icons that show in the multitasking bar - that too is stateless. All the programs that have been run show up in that list - even if ...

The reason for your panic is right near the top: panic(cpu 6 caller 0xffffff8009179085): "zalloc: zone map exhausted while allocating from zone kalloc.4096, likely due to memory leak in zone kalloc.64 (1358808192 total bytes, 21231365 elements allocated)"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-2782.1.97/osfmk/kern/zalloc.c:2521 Something is completely depleting ...

Like Linux, OS X is designed not to require restarting. There is no system wide means to determine if a restart is required - or even requested by a process. For situations where a restart is required, the process responsible for needing the restart is also responsible for organising the restart. Tools that update OS X are most likely to request a restart. ...

You can use BootChamp to quickly restart in Windows from OS X. To restart in OS X from Windows see OS X Lion - Start up using Mac OS X or Windows: Restart directly in Mac OS X from Windows: Click the Boot Camp icon in the system tray and choose “Restart in Mac OS X.” A more tedious way is to set the startup disk to the other OS every time and ...

ssh onto your Mac Type sudo su -l to switch to superuser mode Enter your admin password type halt and hit enter This sends SIGTERM (and subsequently SIGKILL) to all running processes and powers the system off. Note: Type man halt for other options. EDIT: You could also try launchctl shutdown

So apparently you can use the Back To My Mac infrastructure to get to SSH even if there's no port open on the router in front of the relevant Mac: Find your iCloud account number by executing this command in terminal: dns-sd -E Example output Looking for recommended registration domains: Timestamp Recommended Registration domain 23:45:15.660 Added ...

Launchd sends an early warning of shutdowns to all scripts/daemons that have a StopService() subroutine. This gives your process the most time to clean up. Just use launchd to start the script and have it run in the background until it's time to exit. After the services that got the early warning are closing down, All processes get a SIGTERM signal a few ...

Older Mac Minis don't like running headless (without a monitor) Here's one solution involving some cunning use of a display adaptor and a 100 Ohm resistor.

Try OS X Recovery, which is supported in Lion and later and hopefully on your Mac (if your Mac shipped with Lion it is supported, otherwise see http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4904 for a list of older Macs that support Lion Internet Recovery. If your Mac is not listed you will need the OS X Recovery Disk Assistant, see http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1433). To ...

Well, good news for you. As from a few weeks ago, you are able to jailbreak your iOS 5.1 untethered, which eliminates the fact you've to "just-boot" the iPhone very time. In order to do so, Jailbreak nation has published a very detailed and good tutorial on how to jailbreak your iPhone. I suggest you preform a untetheredjailbreak and try again. If things ...

Although Apple recommends to use "launchd" the easiest is to create a shell script using for example Terminal's pico : pico /Users/Shared/logoutHook.sh The file can contain something like : #!/bin/bash say 'Hasta la vista baby!' Then give exuction rights : sudo chmod +x /Users/Shared/logoutHook.sh Finally hook the script to the logout procedure : ...

If you can't kill something with -9, and sudo reboot doesn't work, you're pretty much out of options. The process is deadlocked in a manner that has prevented the OS from shutting down. Have you closed all other Windowed applications? talagent is apparently the process that manages Resume, your guess is as good as mine in determining why it's deadlocked; ...

There is no known reason why upgrading an Airport Basestation or Airport Utility should lead to a reboot (and I've never run into this situation either). The best guess (as already stated in the comments above) is that another upgrade was applied at the same time which required a reboot afterwards. Whether you just didn't realize the additional upgrade or it ...

Hard power off, hold power button and home button until it shows the shutdown slider, and then keep holding the buttons. After a while the screen will completely turn black. Now press the power button to boot the machine up.

Take a look at this discussion on Apple Support Communities about -1006f which contains this solution : Hold Command and R keys while the Mac is starting to start in Recovery HD. If you can start up, open Disk Utility, select Macintosh HD in the sidebar and verify the disk. If it gives you an error, repair your drive. If it can't be repaired, you need a ...

Here are 2 simple tools to use: Open Console in the Utility. Type Wake Reason in the search window. That one will display who is waking up your computer. . In Terminal (also in Utility folder) Type pmset -g assertions That one will tell you your sleep mode settings (and possibly show who is waking it up) You can copy and paste that information in ...

You can hold down the power button for 5 seconds to force a power down and then press it again to power it on. The power button, if you're looking at the front of the computer, is located on the back in the lower left hand corner.

It's Server.app that is creating that mysterious folder that's gumming up your works. Stop the Server.app from launching when the server boots, and then you can create a cronjob that launches it via a .sh script. Script should just be something like #!/bin/bash /Applications/Server.app and like the person said in the one link, the cronjob entry would ...

I split the difference with @zomgdavidbowie: I created a new script /usr/local/bin/start-server-app: #!/bin/sh sleep 120 exec /Library/PrivilegedHelperTools/com.apple.serverd I then edited /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.serverd.plist and replaced all instances of /Library/PrivilegedHelperTools/com.apple.serverd with /usr/local/bin/start-server-app: ...

No, it is not dangerous. Pretty much every single task is queued and persisted if needed. Unless you have a foreground task that has a nice "x" button to stop it, you can reboot, shut down, sleep etc. with no trouble at all. System tasks in OS X are designed to be fully automatic, autonomous and out of the way for the user. When it is complete you might get ...

The correct solution is to execute: setpci -s 00:03.0 0x7b.b=0x19 Be carefull that this line is for this model, for other models read the full article from http://www.mythic-beasts.com/support/macminicolo_howto.html Also, put this in rc.local, for some strange reason it block the computer if I put it in grub.cfg

The panic log show that it's a GPU panic. The system profile indicates that it's a MacBookPro6,2. Based on this, there are a few possible courses of action: Disable graphics switching in System Preferences → Energy Saver. Take it to an Apple Store. It's unfortunately no longer covered by MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010): Intermittent black screen or ...
