Can anyone make an Apple Script for me?

I'm looking for an Apple Script so that when I press cmd+F1 on my Macbook Pro Retina it turns the brightness to 0 instantly. Rather than having to hold F1 down to make the brightness go down to 0.
Is this something that is even possible?
Thank You

There is evidently no direct way to do this, but there is an indirect way:
Download an app called SleepDisplay: Download SleepDisplay for Mac - Put your display to sleep instantly. MacUpdate.com
put SleepDisplay in your Applications folder
open Automator.
Select service for type of document
at the top, for service receives, select no input, and after in, any application
in the column on the left, select Utilities
in the next column, drag Launch Application over to the right, and select SleepDisplay for the app
close the window with the red circle in the left upper corner, and give the service a name, like Dark.
go to system preferences > keyboard > shortcuts
select services in the box on the left, and scroll down in the box on the right until you find the service you just created. select that service.
when you select it, a white oval should appear that says "add shortcut". Type in the shortcut you want to use. I couldn't get ⌘F1 to work, but control-option-⌘-D did work. It must be a unique shortcut, not already in use.

  • Can anyone make --this fix-- work for the FONT rendering issue?

    I found this bug report and proposed fix on the webkit buglist:
    http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14070
    Here is a link that one says can be used to fix the
    rendering issue with bold fonts.
    If anyone can make this work for Safari 3 on XP please let me know....
    Here are the text and link to the how to:
    You can fix rendering issues by changing language for non-Unicode programs. The
    instruction:
    http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/handson/user/xpintlsupp.mspx#EVE
    You should restart system after applying setting.
    Hope this helps someone
    If not, then call apple support and complain....
    maybe if their support phones are getting hot... then they
    will fix this horrible bug

    I don't believe this is a support issue, it's rather a Bugdev issue. Use the Bug-Report field in Safari to report this directly to the engineers. I also think the bug is known and will be solved, it's therefore not really in the range of AppleCare. (Beta Software is usually unsupported!)

  • HT2534 can anyone do an apple id for me please

    why i can't install games

    You will need to create your own account, and what happens when you try to install games ? If you want a new account without giving a credit card number then the instructions on the page that you posted from should work - I tried them a few days ago in response to another thread and they worked ok for me e.g. if you are currently logged into an account then log out of it first, then find a free app in the store and click on its free 'price' :
    And then click on 'create Apple id' on the popup :

    What you do in this situation, is split the file into parts. 
    Start with:
    set theHours to hours of the (current date)
    if theHours > 18 then
              say "good evening sir"
    else if theHours > 12 then
              say "good afternoon sir"
    else if theHours > 6 then
              say "good Morning sir"
    else if theHours > 0 then
              say "get out of bed sir!"
    end if
    Add in a few lines of code to this file and see what happens. 
    add the on run, this would be clearer.  It is the default on unit to run.
    on run
        set theHours to hours of the (current date)
        if theHours > 18 then
            say "good evening sir"
        else if theHours > 12 then
            say "good afternoon sir"
        else if theHours > 6 then
            say "good Morning sir"
        else if theHours > 0 then
            say "get out of bed sir!"
        end if
    end run
    Now, it is time for debugging.
    It is easier to diagnose problems with debug information. I suggest adding log statements to your script to see what is going on.  Here is an example.
        Author: rccharles
        For testing, run in the Script Editor.
          1) Click on the Event Log tab to see the output from the log statement
          2) Click on Run
    on run
        -- Write a message into the event log.
        log "  --- Starting on " & ((current date) as string) & " --- "
        --  debug lines
        set desktopPath to (path to desktop) as string
        log "desktopPath = " & desktopPath
    end run

  • How can I make my apple ID valid for purchases other then the Canadian iTunes Store?

    How can I make my apple ID valid for purchases other then the Canadian iTunes Store? I wanted to download the "Wath abc family" app and it said it had to switch me to the american store because the app isnt available in Canada yet. Once it switched me I put in my apple ID and password and thats when it said that my apple ID is only valid in the canadian store and it switched me back. 
    1)
    2)
    3)

    To make purchases in the Mac App Store/iTunes Store for any particular country, you must be a legal resident of that country and supply a credit card issued by a bank in that country with a verifiable billing address in that country. Do you also make those qualifications in the US?
    But as a side note, as one who has that app, you can only watch both ABC and ABC Family shows if you have an account with a US cable or satelite TV company with which to sign into the app. Otherwise you don't qualify to watch shows with it.

  • How can I make my Apple TV more reliable? It takes a day to download a HD movie on a T1 to play later, but when I try to play the movies, Apple TV can't, and says try again later. Doesn't the day download time put the HD movie on the Apple TV device?

    How can I make my Apple TV work? I downloaded two movies, to play later, on April 4, 2014. I tried to watch them this evening only to get a message they are not available and to try later. How long can it take Apple to download the movies? I encourage anyone thinking about buying an Apple TV to get a different media player that is reliable. Apple TV is not worth the money, nor the time it takes to download movies, nor the effort trying to get your money back when Apple TV fails,and it failsl oftern.. Apple never seems to have a problem charging for the movies, but it frequently has a provlem delivering what people pay for.

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    Try the following steps, check whether things are working after each step where appropriate, before trying the next.
    Restart the Apple TV (Settings > General > Restart).
    Restart the Apple TV by removing ALL the cables for 30 seconds.
    Restart your router.
    Reset the Apple TV (Settings > General > Reset > Reset all settings)
    Restore the Apple TV (Settings > General > Reset > Restore)

  • Apple script for Message box when Mail app Compose Window Opens

    Hi there
    I'm trying to make mail app remind me to choose the right emaill address to send from since I have several email addresses. Is there a way I can make or write an apple script for a message box to pop up whenever mail app's compose window opens up.
    I can do for the case when I actally click the compose button when I'm on mail app by using UI scripting. But when it comes to hyperlinks which opens up the compose window, it fails.
    I just want a script to see whether the compose window is open and if open pop up a message box.
    Thanks
    Best regards

    I think yes.  The encoding is being corrupted somewhere, probably Exchange.  There is nothing you can change on the iPad other than the OS languagel, to see if that helps.  You can also tell Apple at

    How can I make an Apple ID without credit card if the "none" tab is not visible to me?
    Help me out please

    Hello, aligt9p. 
    Thank you for visiting Apple Support Communities. 
    To create an Apple ID without a credit card, there is a specific series of steps that have to be processed in order to allow the payment to be set as none on creation of the account.
    Creating an iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks Store, and Mac App Store account without a credit card
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2534
    Why can’t I select None when I edit my payment information?
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS5366
    If the specific steps have not been processed, a credit or debit card will be required to complete the setup the account.
    However, it can be removed and payment method changed to none as long as there is not an outstanding balance.

  • How can I make a "property node" for a VI?

    Hello!
    If I add a boolean button on the FP then I am able to make a property node for that button in the Block Diagram. But how can I make a property node for a VI? I have several VI:s an that together is one program. What I need to do is to verify what kind of VI some of my VI:s is. I need to verify if it is .exe or .vi-file, and if it is .exe then I want to disable run, abort, run continuously bottons otherwise not. I have hard that this is possible to do programmaticaly but I can´t figure out how. I am aware that I could do that manually in the File->vi properties->customize->windows appearance but theese choises makes it last forever.
    I want to be able to stop and run and everything if it is a .vi file, but if it is .exe-file then all those buttons should be disabled.
    Anyone have an example on this?
    In an other message at this Forum I read "You can use the `Front Panel Window. Allow Runtime PopUp`" property to disable run-time shortcuts menues programmaticaly, but still I dont know how to create this property node.
    /Amir

    You really shouldn't open a new thread. If you don't understand something, ask and we will explain it.
    Like I said in the other thread, you can check if you are running in LV or an EXE by using the Application>>Kind property. To get it, place a property node (from the Application Control palette) on the diagram, click it and find the property.
    To set the properties for the VI, place another property node, right click it and select Select Class>>VI Server>>VI. You should have the properties you want under Front Panel Window.
    To learn more about LabVIEW, I suggest you try searching this site and google for LabVIEW tutorials. Here and here are a couple you can start with. You can also contact your local NI office and join one of their courses.
    In addition, I suggest you read the LabVIEW style guide and the LabVIEW user manual (Help>>Search the LabVIEW Bookshelf). I believe chapter 17 of the user manual explains about programmatic control of VIs.

  • My family shares one apple id. Is there any way to make an apple id for each member of my family and have it all connected to the same credit card and have the same previous downloads open to download by signing in to each members personal apple id?

    My family shares one apple id. Is there any way to make an apple id for each member of my family and have it all connected to the same credit card and have the same previous downloads open to download by signing in to each members personal apple id?

    Hi cindy,
    If you all have individual Apple IDs, then you would be able to dowload music from a shared iTunes library on a computer, but you would not be able to sign on each individual ID on an iOS device in order to download music purchased under the original Apple ID without a 90-day waiting period between sign-ons.
    Here's what I mean:
    If you were to sign on a new Apple ID on, say, an iPhone, and then were to purchase and download some music from iTunes, then you would have to wait 90 days before you could sign on the old Apple ID to that iPhone in order to download previously purchased material (and vice versa).
    However, if all of the music purchased by that origjnal Apple ID is in an iTunes library on a shared computer, then you can hook up the device and selectively sync any music in that library to the device. You can also sign on any of the Apple IDs to that shared iTunes library and purchase music to be added to the library.
    You would need to authorize the computer for each of the new Apple IDs.
    Each of the Apple IDs would also be able to download that music purchased either by syncing to the iTunes library on the computer or by downloading it OTA on the device.
    So, each Apple ID can download music, movies, etc. purchased with that Apple ID OTA to the device. Also each Apple ID can sync any music, movies, etc. that are in the iTunes library on the computer regardless of who purchased them.
    The only other thing you would need to remember is that if an App needed to be updated, then the original Apple ID that was used to purchase that App would come up, and the password that goes with that Apple ID would be required to do the update.
    Hope that helps,

  • Can anyone suggest a simple system for backing up my MacBook?

    I have a MacBook 120G which runs Tiger. I also have an Aiport Extreme, which is connected to a printer via USB. I want to buy an external hard drive to create a safety back up of my whole system. I have been trawling the suppliers' websites, getting more and more confused. Can anyone suggest the simplest solution for a simple-minded user like me? These are my main confusions:
    a) Can anyone suggest what type / make of hard drive I should buy in order to be able to store my computer's contents and re-boot it in the event of disaster? Will a non-powered hard drive do the job or is it somehow better to get a powered one? It would sit near my desk so I am keen to avoid fan noise if at all possible! I believe I'll need to 'partition' the drive in order to make it bootable, or something - if this is correct, what kind of hard drive is easiest and idiotproof for this?
    b) I think I've concluded it's not worth binning my Airport Extreme and replacing it with a Time Capsule. But is it worth buying Leopard in order to get Time Machine? I believe I can still use the Airport Extreme to connect to the hard drive so that Time Machine would make backups regularly and wirelessly? If so, do I need to use a USB hub from the Airport Extreme so that I can still keep the printer connected? I can only find one HD which has a built in hub - the Iomega Minimax - but I have read reviews saying the fan is noisy. Any other suggestions?
    Any help and suggestions about this would be very gratefully received. Many thanks
    Steve

    Leopard is a nice upgrade (if your computer has 2GB of memory) and TimeMachine is convenient but it isn't the only way to create a reliable and simple backup system. If you decide TM is your solution buy a drive that has 2 to 3 times as much space as you are using on your computer now. If you are using 80GB of your drive now, buy a 160GB to 240GB drive for TimeMachine. It keeps multiple backups and eats up drive space pretty quickly.
    Lots of good backup programs exist but the one I really like is called SuperDuper! It will create an exact duplicate of your hard drive and you can set up a schedule so that automatically backs up new and modified files at specific times/days. With my MacBook I connect it to my external drive on Friday evening and let SuperDuper! do its work overnight. If you chose this router or another that doesn't use TimeMachine, get a drive at least as large as your computer's hard drive.
    The Western Digital MyBook series is a good choice and so is the Seagate FreeAgent series. I'd avoid self powered external drives like Western Digital's Passport series unless you intend to travel with the drive. They require special proprietary cables to power the drive which are easy to lose and expensive to replace, among other things. If you can afford a firewire drive that's generally preferable because firewire is faster than USB but the speed difference isn't blazing. If you do you backing up over night speed won't be an issue.
    Whether you use TimeMachine or another program, this is just once phase of a backup plan. If you experience a break-in, fire, or flood the backup drive is probably going to experience the same fate as your computer. You also need to think about taking a backup of your most important files off-site. This can be as simple as once a month burning a DVD of your documents, digital photos, and email to a DVD and taking it to work.
