comment Is the message “You must change your passcode within 60 minutes” valid / non-malware?
@Daniel777 I did at the time (see the last paragraph), but the point is to find out if it was malware at all. If it was, there would have been bigger issues at hand than changing a password.

comment Is there a Safari extension to provide a drop-down menu listing all tabs, or shows all tabs in the tab bar?
I do know, thanks. It's pretty much the opposite of what I want to have - I would like to have all tabs on the tab bar. To use that, you have to zoom out, scroll, find your tabs y what it looks like (not page name), click to zoom in. It's pretty but inefficient.

comment Spaces in Mavericks: apps do not remember their space
@Tetsujin There used to be a way to change that - has that been removed in mavericks? I'm sure I remember that in early versions of Spaces, it would remember when apps were assigned to specific spaces - eg, App Foo would always be immediately to the right of the desktop, because that was where it was assigned. App Bar would be to its right, etc. And you could rearrange it would remember the layout. Am I crazy, or is that either broken or gone now, or is there another way to do it?

comment Very high kernel_task CPU usage after updating to Yosemite 10.10.4
@Tetsujin Thanks, though I would be surprised if it's heat. I had quite some effort to keep it cool in case that was the problem. Thanks though, and maybe you're right... Today and yesterday were cooler. But booting in safe mode didn't cause it, yet the computer was still running the same software (etc Chrome.)

I've had a fan pointing at my laptop for a week now, just in case that was the cause. Thanks though!

It seems to be behaving itself today...

It's occurring for me without the Parallels kexts loaded (they are only loaded when I start Parallels.) Jean-Philippe - I'm glad I'm not the only one seeing this! At least yours was only one hour :)

@patrix Edited to answer, but basically no, nothing. I have some Parallels kexts loaded (Parallels is fully up to date) and batter health of 'check battery' - maybe that could be related?

comment Very high kernel_task CPU usage after updating to Yosemite 10.10.4
Thanks @patrix . I've read most or all of those and so far as I can tell none apply. The kext thing is a possibility, but I don't have anything odd installed, so it might be one of the inbuilt drivers (?) - I suspect that especially since this problem was introduced by 10.10.4. I'll investigate those and update, though. Btw, since this was definitely introduced by 10.10.4, is it really "too broad" a question? I've narrowed it down from most things and it's OS-update-specific - that seems quite a specific question to me.
