comment MacBook Pro battery and speed issues
You had two questions in here. This site works better when there is only one question per question. That way, it's easier for other people to find solutions if they have the same problem. I've edited out your second question, but feel free to ask it separately.

comment Is there a way to disable OS X auto termination of applications?
It's an extreme solution, to be sure, but this is one of several ways Snow Leopard is superior to Lion. The cumulative effect of them might induce someone to want Snow Leopard. That said, I'm just learning to live with it, as other features of Lion (particularly related to iCloud) make it worth putting up with the drawbacks.

Links often break over time. Please summarize the contents of external sites in your answer rather than simply linking.

What version of MacOS X are you running? Sadly, it makes a difference to the answer to this question.

comment How to delete a folder, even in every backups of Time Machine?
This, of course, breaks the very idea of backup -- but sometimes that's precisely what one wants. I would hope this is possible, but not easy to do -- too easy, and it defeats the purpose of backing up a file; impossible and it defeats another sort of data security.

It's got to be possible, but I'll admit I don't know how, because I don't have a Windows computer to check with. Did you look at the sync settings in iTunes? That's often key.

comment Why isn't iTunes shuffle random?
The question isn't really why isn't it random -- it is why is the random sequence generated once, and then subsequent playings play the same random sequence. If a computer program had a function randomNumber(), and the programmer rolled a die, got a 4, and the function's body was something to the effect of {return 4;}, that would be a true random number reporting function, but not a random number generating function.

comment How can I send a mail message later?
Out of curiosity, do you think this is a better idea than setting an iCal alarm that automatically sends the message? If one is already depending on iCal, why not let iCal do all the work?

really? I hadn't noticed that. Interesting. I'll have to poke around a bit.
