comment Getting Music NOT purchased from iTunes, from an old computer to new computer
+1 on the iTunes Match. Have been using it for two years, and I love it. Having all my music on the go via iPad and iPhone is great. Plus I have it on my AppleTV, on my Macs...

comment Internal hard disk requirements will not allow me to update to Maverick
Can you show us the boot messages? You can press Command-V during boot to view them. Maybe this will display an error message. Most probably you will then have to upgrade your hard disk...

comment How to make the iMac go to sleep after certain amount of time?
Nope, that slider does not appear. I deactivated this setting, because I need to run some non PowerNap apps. But I would also like to still have the Mac sleep after some hours of idling.

I think there are 3rd party apps that can do this. In one of the other questions Alfred is mentioned. YMMV

comment Manually lock screen
I quote one answer from that Q: "Require password immediately after sleep or screen saver begins should be checked in the Security & Privacy in System Preferences panel if you want to ensure a slept screen is also securely locked."
