jean156,
I am a little confused, you are posting in an iMac forum however your profile only indicates you have a MacPro. While I agree a SMC reset may help please carefully read the link The hatter provided because different Mac's have a different processes for resetting the SMC.
In the mean time you may want to update your profile (Your Stuff in upper right and click Profile) and also please post in the correct forum to avoid confusion.

  • I have a Mac OSX Version 10.5.8 When I put in my disc to upgrade to snow leopard version 10.6.3 it tells me I need atleast 1gb of ram memory to download. what can I do

    I have a Mac OSX Version 10.5.8 When I put in my disc to upgrade to snow leopard version 10.6.3 it tells me I need atleast 1gb of ram memory to download. what can I do

    Your iMac can take a total of 2 GBs of RAM Max.
    Maximum Memory
    2.0 GB
    Memory Slots
    2 - 200-pin PC2-5300 (667MHz) DDR2 SO-DIMM
    You will be able to install OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and it will run, but you may not be happy with the performance overall.
    OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and later OS X versions use more and more CPU, GPU and RAM resources.
    OS X 10.6, by itself, will use between 2-4 GBs of RAM to run quickly, smoothly and efficiently.
    Start running additonal applications and your iMac is going to struggle.
    Just fair warning if you notice that your iMac is running slower after installing OS X 10.6.
    Good Luck!

  • I have pluged a portable battery to the USB and my macbook pro stopped working after that, right before it shut down there was a message on the screen that said something like " USB device is withdrawing so much power, please disconnect and connect again?

    I have plugged a portable battery to the USB and my macbook pro stopped working after that, right before it shut down there was a message on the screen that said something like " USB device is withdrawing so much power, please disconnect and connect again?
    if the device I connected have caused this, shouldn't the macbook itself have some type of protection that should prevent this from happening.
    because when I took it to an apple certified maintenance shop, the guy said that now it could only run while connected to the power. it won't run on batteries. and that I have to change the motherboard.
    can I just replace the damaged part only, would apple consider this as a design issue and they could pay for it, or should I just buy a new motherboard for 800$.
    Help.

    BB1B2,
    The problem is in finding a tech shop that will/can do board level repairs on Macs. They are few. And I certainly wouldn't spend $800 on a new logic board - I would replace the computer if I had to pay that much!
    You could call around to a few repair shops and see if they feel competent to isolate the problem and do a board level repair - but I'm afraid, in the end, that your search will be futile.
    Sorry,
    Clinton

  • I have Ipad 2.  When I touch an icon, a box forms around it and then I have to tap it twice to open.  The box is messing up the touch screen and when I go into some apps they open, update then shut down.

    I have an Ipad2.  All of a sudden when I touch an app or select anything, a box forms around the icon or word and then I have to tap it twice to open it.  So everything I do I have to touch 3 times.  Also now when I open some of the apps, they open, update then close down.   How do I get rid of the box. 

    You might have turned VoiceOver 'on'. See if triple-clicking the home button turns it off, and if it does then cahnge what Settings > General > Axxessibility > Triple-Click Hme is set to.
    Otherwise your need to use the 'touch to select, double-tap to activate' process to go into Settings > General > Accessibility > VoiceOver and turn it off.
    The manual (http://support.apple.com/manuals/#ipad) also says that you should be able to switch voice-over off by connecting to your computer's iTunes :
    Turn VoiceOver on or off in iTunes: Select iPad in the iTunes sidebar. In the Options section of the Summary pane, click Configure Universal Access. Select VoiceOver, then click OK.
    So select Configure Universal Access at the bottom of the Summary tab and set Seeing to Neither

  • My imac desktop 9.1 the fan keeps running..i have turned off and also pulled power plug but it still runs

    the fan on my imac9.1 keeps running..i shut it down and pulled the plug..did not help

    The fan minimum speeds are about 1200 rpm, so if the Mac is powered on and not sleeping, they're running.
    An iMac's exhaust fans will not run if its power cord is disconnected. If that's what you meant to write, you're hearing something else.

    You certainly don't have any third-party software that's causing your sluggishness.
    Sometimes, a failing hard drive can cause sluggish behavior, however.
    Boot into your Recovery partition (hold down the command and R keys whilst booting) and once at the Recovery screen, select Disk Utility. Select your hard drive (in your case, the aptly named "Macintosh HD") and click on the "Verify" button. If you get green text telling you that everything appears to be OK, then it's not your hard drive slowing things down. If you get red text telling you that the disk needs to be repaired, click on the "Repair" button. If the disk can be fixed, it will be. If not, call back.

  • I have a Mac OSX 10.6.8 and I can no longer "save to iphoto" when photos come by email.

    I have a Mac OSX 10.6.8 and I can no longer "save to iPhoto " when I get photos on email.

    What changed, before you could no longer save image attachments to iPhoto?
    Did you install new software or upgrade to newer versions?  Which version of iPhoto are you using?
    The "Save to iPhoto" feature has been missing for some iPhoto versions. I do not remember exactly when it vanished, but it is back with iPhoto 9,6 and MacOS X 10.10.2.
    As  a work-around - you can drag photo attacuments from your mail to the iPhoto icon in the Dock to save them to iPhoto.

  • I have a Mac OSx 10.6.8 and iPhoto 7.1.5 and can no longer order printed photo albums unless i install new version of iPhoto. But reviews of new iPhoto so negative. Should I install it or steer clear of it??

    I have a Mac OSx 10.6.8 and iPhoto 7.1.5 and can no longer order printed photo albums unless I update to new version of iPhoto. But reviews of new iPhoto are so negative that I am uncomfortable about buying it. Will it be fine or should I steer clear of trouble and accept that i can no longer publish my photos?

    iPhoto '11 is working well.
    The reviews usually only show the comments of people who do not like the changed features.
    To get an idea what to expect, when you upgrade, look at the iPhoto '11 support sites.

    Hi Mary,
    I don't remember those arrows in 10.6, only 10.7 & up!?
    I have 10.6.8, as you do. To make your Safari full screen, make sure you have the left hand side of your safari page moved  all the way to the left.  Then move your cursor to the BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER of the safari page, and simply drag your page towards the lower right hand corner of the screen. NOTE: you will see a series of lines on the bottom right corner of the page, indicating where to place you cursor arrow.

    Books are no longer supported with iPhoto '08 (a roughly six yeal old product) - you can purchase an iLife '09 DVD from someplace like Amazon or eBay and install it - iPhoto '09 is still supported this year
