Apple recommends: Just sign in at iCloud.com or use the Find My iPhone app to see your missing iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac on a map. And with the Lost Mode feature you don’t just see where your device is, you can track where it’s been. That way you can decide on your best course of action. You can immediately lock your device and send it a message ...

The only way to locate it is via find my mac. When it is a personal mac my advice is to lock it in iCloud. When the mac is used for business, best thing to do is to erase the mac.

If all you want is to have your desktop confined to your computer's screen, go to System Preferences > Displays > Arrangement, and check Mirror Displays. That'll make it so that your HDMI display only acts as a mirror of the desktop you already have, rather than an extension of it.

There is no way to transmit only audio data via HDMI. The HDMI white paper (page 10) notes that the signal is sent in HDMI packets consisting of both audio and video. Despite all the pins, there are no separate audio and video signals, so there are also no HDMI A/V splitter cables. The only way to get around this is to send blank video data (e.g. a black ...

Unfortunately you have hit one of the problems with retina displays. although some applications are set to automatically scale for the 1920x1200 resolution, some, like lightroom, can not yet show accurate pixels at that scale, so you're forced to work at a crappy 1440 pixel resolution. it really sucks.

We've had a couple of machines at work in a similar state, they were brought back to normal operation by starting in safe boot then moving the Containers folder from the user's Library folder to the desktop.

If you go into the console, what errors do you see reported? Do you see the phrase “mouse-down”? If so, I had a similar problem a few months ago which turned out to be caused by a 3rd party application called Numi. If you see the “mouse-down” phrase in Console, my advice would be to quit all 3rd party processes you might have running in the background from ...

This hibernate/sleep thing has been driving me insane. And I agree that Apple should put more energy into fixing this pmset behavior. I will be clear. I love hibernate mode and it used to work perfectly in older models and OSs (just running sudo pmset hibernatemode 25 was enough). Now Apple broke something and this just doesn't work since Yosemite.

I'm not sure exactly what's wrong, but try starting your computer in Internet Recovery Mode. If you still can't use your mouse after it fully boots into this mode, then there's likely a hardware issue.

Years ago, I used cscreen to map a Keyboard Maestro shortcut to a shell script. It might work for your purposes. http://www.pyehouse.com/cscreen/ The dev updated it for Intel machines a couple of years ago but did not have a retina machine for testing. I expect we will all have to deal with this problem eventually.

Your system supports following resolutions: You can use 4K displays and Ultra HD TVs at the following resolutions and refresh rates via the built-in HDMI port. 3840 x 2160 at 30 Hz refresh rate 4096 x 2160 at 24 Hz refresh rate (mirroring is not supported at this resolution)- MBP 2013 and up. Thus no 60Hz is possible.

Is it possible the snapshots being deleted are local snapshots (see http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202301) and not on the external? Local snapshots start getting deleted when free space your internal volume (not the backup volume) drops below 20%.

I found this for you scrutil Slightly more advanced due to the nature of the command line, the free utility called screenutil gets the job done immediately with a quick entry into the Terminal.

I would recommend the iStat Monitor to find out what is going on. In comparison the 750 vs 650: 50/45 watt power consumption and 967 vs 900 MHz clock would not explain the higher heat generation. However due to the RAM size difference it could explain that the 650 has to work harder (at max power) resulting in higher heat generation, while the 750 does ...

There is no way to guarantee to put the data in the 'same place', no matter where in the filesystem you put it. Hard drives just don't work that way. They will put specific data anywhere they like [or to an algorithm unfathomable to mere users] To be reasonably certain of overwriting the data [with as much certainty as you can have without destroying the ...

Hyper-V isn't available for Windows 7. You have to install at least Windows 8 Pro/Enterprise or Windows Server 2008/2012. (Source) You might install Hyper-V Manager (probably you did already) though. This application allows to manage Hyper-V hypervisors installed on other computers meeting the above mentioned Operating System requirements.

Take the resolution down. Remember that the rMBPs have a native resolution that is way higher than 1080p, and expecting them to game at that resolution is perhaps expecting too much. I use a 2014 13" rMBP (which uses Intel Iris, not an external Nvidia card), and I rarely have any issues running RoS at 1280x80x60 with textures to high and other settings to ...

That menu bar looks like you're on Mavericks. You should upgrade to Yosemite and see if that helps. Speaking of which, if you haven't already, you should check how Internet-using apps that aren't web browsers perform, such as seeing how long it takes Dropbox to download a new file. If all else fails, you should go to a place with a newer router and see if ...

Kernel panic (possibly device driver or hardware issue) is a tricky thing to debug. You should bring it to a Genius bar/Apple Store to have it debugged. You can see similar crash dumps in Apple Support Community but different issues/fixes.

Did you bring it into a Apple store? If you did and asked I'm sure they would do it. If you sent it in, they don't have to do it, but maybe if you get a lucky the technician will do it.
