comment Did Mavericks solve the Safari Airplay delay?
Basically it's this bug, which apparently can only be solved by the Flash developers.

comment Force MacBook to turn on when low battery indicator is showing
I'm not an expert on this, but I can imagine it takes more power to start up than it costs to run idle for 8 minutes. Because of this you could not start your mac, even though you still had "8 minutes" of juice. The next time you only have 10 minutes left of your battery try running some computationally intensive task (e.g. rendering a video). You'll notice that you'll not get the full 10 minutes.

The 8 minutes is an indication and can be far from the amount of time you can use it in real life. If your Mac does not get out of sleep it means the battery is really dead and you will need a charger.

comment Did Mavericks solve the Safari Airplay delay?
I'm confused as I don't see how the working programs (Quicktime and Safari+HTML5 and Safari+Vimeo) get around the the speed limitation, if that's the bottleneck.

comment Did Mavericks solve the Safari Airplay delay?
I've added some clarifications. The delay is not dependent on WiFi speeds, it's set at 2 seconds natively. It works for some video formats in Safari, so it seems not to be a WiFi speed problem.

comment Can I use AirPlay with an Airport Express when the WAN port is not connected?
Thanks for your answer, exactly what I'm looking for. What do you mean with you can do this with both versions. The wiki lists 3 versions. Do you mean that the latest two versions have the described functionality?

I found a solution here that seemed to work for people... Could you maybe link to that solution and explain what step you find difficult to understand?

Also: Welcome to Apple.SE! When answering questions try to make the answer self-contained. In the case that your link would go down your answer would become useless. Hence it's a good custom to quote or rephrase the relevant parts of a linked document in your answer.

All usage scenario's explained on that page assume you have a cable router. I will not have one for a while and wondering if it will work without a modem, but just as an AirPlay receiver. I could not find information on that in the article

comment iOS 7.1 - Where do emails go to when I 'archive' them in Gmail App?
it just removes any labels on it. This is not true, right? It just removes the inbox label. If you would have applied different labels on the message (e.g. boss, work, invite) while it was in the inbox, those labels will still be applied to the message when you archive it.

@Buscar웃 Do you know of such a monitor application that will work on a Intel Core 2 Duo P8800? If I try the linked app it tells me I don't have a 2nd gen Intel Core processor.

comment MacBook Pro shuts down when unplugged
I've seen Ryan's update. But you do understand that your answer is very general and not helpful, right? Just stating the fact this is really anormal (yes, that's why the OP is asking for help) and following that up with very general advice to send it in for repair is not helpful considering the answers that were already present before you posted yours. Take a look at the answer help section to see how to improve your answers.

I don't get it... The solution is lrussel810's answer. He states the same as you, but in a more elaborate way. In 2011.

comment Lock Screen Command One-Liner
Tried it, works as described. The compilation generates one warning instance method '-_lockScreenMenuHit:' not found, but the lockscreen application works nonetheless. However, when doubleclicked it opens a Terminal window before it locks the screen. After unlocking you have to close the window manually. Is there a way to close that window automatically?

Could you elaborate on how to use this? Do I copy-paste this into an Automator workflow? Or make an Applescript out of it? As it stands now it's hard to do something with your answer.
