Just to make sure - you didn't have anything like f.lux running?

comment Is there a way to disable the sorting on click within mail.app?
I will try that. I just will leave the question open for a few more days in hope a permanent solution shows up.

In addition to the answer above - if you want to automate anything with passwords (what you usually should not!) you might want to use expect. You can get it with homebrew or the other package managers.

comment Can someone explain why so much “Other” space is occupied on an iPhone 4?
Although it's been answered already I would first suggest a softer method. Quitting apps and especially just turning off and on also seems to defragment the memory freeing lots of space (see lifeinlofi.com/2012/07/30/… eg.)

comment Same external hard drive for time machine and storage
Time machine is very picky on how the drive is partitioned and formatted. I found it most reliable to let it setup the drive.

comment SuperDrive - one in five dvds won't mount
You were so right! I had some time and finally took it apart cleaned with compressed air and reassembled (magic I managed to). Now it reads all movies again.

3) as I wrote - I also consider getting an external one. But having the issue only with a few disks I want to confirm that it's not a software issue.

2) I wouldn't call it a grinding noise (the one at my work makes much louder stuttering and still reads the disks fine). But you hear multiple spin ups for "unreadable" disks.

1) It's always the same disks. I tried cleaning and so - but one even was original packaged as I tried. Others mount immediatly. The same disks work fine in my PS3.

Not about a case - but checkout the guided access - support.apple.com/kb/HT5509 - you can disable home and sleep with that in software, doesn't require a case :)
