comment iTunes 11 Stuttering During Playback
I've just remembered that I have FileVault enabled, and as the crashes / skips happen when the computer is performing file ops, I think turning FV off might help - decryping my hard drive now...

Does that imply a dud drive? I've been thinking about swapping back to the 'moving part' drive anyhow.

Side note- when it happens, the read speed on the drive drops to zero for several seconds, often the write speed is zero too.

But the screensaver time option is greyed out. Something is clearly blocking it?

Built in, tiled images coming from a folder. I don't have caffeine or anything else like that enabled which would block it, either.

Indeed. It'll just sit idling for hours - I left it doing some FTP operations last night, in the hope that it would sleep on completion - it didn't.

Where is that? I can't find it in mail contacts and calendars, quick google says it couldn't be done in iOS 5, changed in six?

That's what I have done, but I would love to have contacts sync again.

comment Macbook Pro Sleep Battery Drain
Have done that one, and since I upgraded it to mountain lion the waking battery drain has been pretty terrible too - I'm down from nearly 7 hours to a little over three. Thinking it might be time for a genius visit.
