See stackoverflow.com/a/19741615/35690 for a similar question.

comment User account doesn't appear on first login screen
This worked, thanks. Do you know if there is a way to do the opposite and disable it for specific users?

comment User account doesn't appear on first login screen
They look similar, but they are distinct. Perhaps because FileVault 2 is enabled? You can easily see the difference if you set the "Display login window as: Name and Password" option. It will show the user accounts when you first log in (light gray screen), but will show text fields if you log out (dark gray screen).

comment Is it possible to have my MacBook become an iBeacon?
Sorry, I should have clarified, I am looking for a solution which doesn't require external hardware. Since some MacBooks already have Bluetooth 4.0 built-in, I was hoping there is a solution which could utilize that instead of having to add on more hardware.

Great tip. How would you get it back if you wanted it?

Thanks for the link, looks very interesting.

comment Disable mouse acceleration
Interesting solution, but the part that will automatically download a script from the internet sounds like a security vulnerability. (E.g. if that website gets hacked one day.)

comment How can I avoid re-encoding of video in iMovie and use it for cutting only?
I'm trying to do the same thing with a simple trim. I don't see a Save option on Mountain Lion though, it seems like it forces you to export the video. Has anyone been able to get it to save without re-encoding the video?

comment What does the clear key do on Apple's numpad?
It seems to do the same thing that Escape does in Calculator.

@duci9y: Woops I incorrectly referred to it as an iPhone 3GS when in fact it is a 3G.

I updated the question to clarify that I'm looking for a solution for after the phone is stolen.

comment Getting notified when my iPhone is found at a different email address?
This seems like you would need the iPhone to do this. What if I want to do this after the phone is stolen?

comment How do I report a bug in Safari 6.0?
@bmike: Oh I see, I thought you meant that the Safari Developer program has a special site designed for bug reporting, but that is not the case. It uses the same one as bugreporter.apple.com, but you need an apple developer ID to access that website, so it would be a good idea to sign up as a Safari developer since that is the product I'm experiencing a problem with anyways.

comment How do I report a bug in Safari 6.0?
@bmike: I joined the program, but the only reference I saw there to bug reporting just takes you to the bugreporter.apple.com link above. Am I missing something?

comment How do I report a bug in Safari 6.0?
@bmike: is it free to submit a bug through the Safari Developer program? Is there a direct link to there, or will I see it once I login to the above link?

comment Fix Better Touch Tool so that it doesn't prevent sleep?
@kccricket: yes, I've tried it many times and BTT is always the problem. It will still turn the monitor off, but the computer won't go to sleep. That's one of the reasons this bug is hard to catch. Are you sure that your computer is actually going to sleep and it's not just the monitor that is going to sleep? See this question for detecting the difference between the two.

comment Dialog pops up everyday for less than a second
This solved the problem. It was a problem with Facebook Video Calling. I just found a similar thread at Apple's support forms.

Good idea, @timothymh. It seems like it's a problem with Facebook Video Calling. I just found a similar thread at Apple's support forms. Could you add your suggestion as an answer?

comment Getting a list of currently running processes
This gives me the same info as ephsmith's answer, but it excludes -bash, sort, xargs and doesn't display an error message (which is a good thing). Also, it uses a simpler command, thanks.
