You’ve done a pretty good job so far of troubleshooting this yourself and there are many things that prevent sleep out of the box and by design. What I would do next is exactly what you’re asking about - a targeted check to see if an application is what’s stopping your Mac from going to sleep. To do this, follow these steps: The next time your Mac isn’t ...

Yes, I'm pretty sure you can stop apps from opening on startup even though it ignores Login Items. It is most likely in LaunchDaemons. There are two locations for these, one is for Apple daemons only: /System/Library/LaunchDaemons The other is to include 3rd party processes: /Library/LaunchDaemons You may also need to remove from: /Library/...

Moving files from one share on a host to another share on the same host will always be faster when initiated from the host itself, and will always be slow when transferred from the host to a client (and back). Regardless of whether you use Finder, or mv or cp or Carbon Copy Cloner, if the data has to traverse the network, it will be orders of magnitude ...

Plists, or property lists, are just a file format for storing serialized objects - for example configurations or similar. The file format specifies how strings are stores, but it doesn't specify anything about higher level details - such as how file names are stored, parsed or otherwise dealt with. This means that it is not possible to answer your question ...

From my experience, Carbon Copy Cloner as a rsync gui makes better use of the bandwidth available compared to copying using the Finder's drag and drop. If you don't want to use the NAS interface, that's the only way to maximize the transfer rate. I will also suggest using Menumeters to measure your network speeds, and use a wired Ethernet connection ...

There is no downgrade option available which let's you 'go back to a previous macOS version'. Most Mac Apps automatically convert your Photo, Mail or iTunes files to a newer database version. So you won't be able to import Mails out-of-the-box from Mail (Mojave) into Mail (El Capitan). You will need to backup your data, first Erase your disk or volume ...

Aren't there drivers or kernel extensions too? Yes, apparently Parallels does use kernel extensions. If in the Finder we select Parallels Desktop.app and context-click to choose Show package contents, we can navigate to nested folder Contents > Library > Extensions > 10.9 to find some .kext files such as prl_hypervisor.kext. Are such kernel extensions ...

tl;dr - As a starting off point, eyeballing it I'd estimate around ƒ/2.2 - ƒ/2.8 aperture. This isn't an exact answer, I put the iPhone 7+ front camera (which has a ƒ/2.2 aperture and a 'focal length in 35mm' of 32mm) next to the 720p FaceTime HD camera on a macbook. Eyeballing it, the image on the mac seems to be the same or maybe ~5% smaller in FOV. So I ...
