Is there a way to stop the mail icon from bouncing

Hi all.  Is there a way to stop the mail icon from bouncing on the dock when a new message is received?  It's irritating.  I'm running Lion.  Thanks.
Kelly

Thank you Linc.  I knew that I did something in system preferences to cause it to bounce, but couldn't remember what I did.  I appreciate your help!  Kelly

    Is there a way to stop the print screen from dropping down on top of the page to be printed.  Can the print screen be moved?  When the print screen drops down, it covers the page and the info needed to create the file.  Thank you

    You will find that this is application dependent.  Most Apple applications such as Safari and Mail will use the "sheet" type of dialog boxes that you are referring.  There is no way for the user to change that behavior.  Other, non-Apple, applications like Firefox use a "modal" dialog box for printing etc.  The modal boxes can be moved around so you can see the page behind.

  • Is there a way to remove the folder icons from the bookmarks toolbar without removing the favicons for the websites?

    Hi
    In Firefox , I would like to remove the folder icons in my bookmarks toolbar. However I do not want to remove the favicons (logos) from the websites in the bookmark folders and the bookmarks toolbar.
    If possible I would like to use userchrome to do this. (I'm not very good at userchromes though, so a clear explenation would be highly appreciated)
    Thanks

  • Is there a way to stop the Edge network from activating?  Overseas Travel

    I am travelling in Europe and I do not want the EDGE network to be activated. But I can't find a way to turn off the Edge network. At $1 per KB, this is going to get expensive. I am using WiFi when I can, but the rest of the time, it's on Edge and with Yahoo push email, I end up with 50+ KB per day of traffic.
    Does anyone have any ideas? When I leave the wifi area, I turn off my email. But there still seems to be traffic on the edge network (under Settings > Usage). I prefer to do my email only in a wifi zone.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    I agree. I am currently in the UK and am contending with this. i turned off my e-mail as well but I will be contacting AT&T for a credit on all of the data transfer I invouluntarily incurred while here.

  • Is there a way of stopping the battery from charging?

    Dear Apple Community,
    Recently I installed iStat Menus and found that, over the course of this year, my Macbook's charging capacity has dropped 5%. I know this isn't a massive number, but battery performance has become a concern for me. I use my Macbook as a desktop replacement, on the main. It's sitting on a mStand, connected to a large monitor on my desk. I use my Macbook to play games, surf the internet, do work and all that good stuff - basically, I use it for everything. I rarely use the Macbook without it being plugged in. I read on the Apple website that they do not recommend leaving the Macbook on charge permanently and that I should use it on battery at least one a month. As I use my Macbook as a desktop replacement, I don't actually have a lot of opportunity to do this.
    My question to you, the community, is: is there a way of stopping the battery from charging, either with the use of an app or a physical device? Ideally, I would love to have my power plugged in BUT only used when the battery drops below 10%. Is this possible with an app?
    On the other hand, am I just worrying about nothing? Will my battery be damaged further if I leave the Macbook charging permanently?
    Thanks for your help!

    Ideally, I would love to have my power plugged in BUT only used when the battery drops below 10%. Is this possible with an app?
    The charging characteristics are handled in firmware.  There is no app that would be able to do this.  You actually would not want to do this anyway.  Regularly discharging your battery to 10% will greatly decrease the life of your battery.  While it is true that you should not use your system exclusively plugged in, allowing it to run on battery a few hours a week should be fine.  Letting the battery regularly run down to (or below) 10% will cause you to use up cycles more quickly than is necessary (thereby reducing the life of your battery).  It's really a only a matter of disconnecting your Magsafe connector once in a while.
    Leaving it plugged in does not result in it being charged "permanently".  It will charge until it is full and then charging will stop.  It will only begin recharging when it reaches about 95%.

  • Is there a way to stop the OS from switching to a newly opened app?  I would like to be able to continue what I'm doing while I wait for an app to launch and not get interrupted by a forced entry into the app.

    Is there a way to stop the OS from switching to a newly opened app?  I would like to be able to continue what I'm doing while I wait for an app to launch and not get interrupted by a forced entry into the app.
    As an example, I'm going to my email in safari, while I wait for it to load, I open an excel document, and the OS decides excel should be the front app, so I go back to safari so I can enter my login info, but halfway through my password the OS decides that excel is where I should finish typing my password.
    VERY ANNOYING.  Can I open apps in the background?

    Thank you everyone for the suggestions. J D, I'm not a terminal fan, but I'm sure it works.  I found a solution that I can use in the dock from another post.

  • On my iPad 3 is there any way to stop the pictures from flipping 180 when saved?

    When I take pictures with my iPad, when the pictures save they always flip to the opposite side. Like a mirror image. I am wondering if there was anything I can do to fix this as it is extremely annoying!

    Yes the calendar is gone. I guess it is the notification center I am referring to that comes down when I accidently swipe the top of the screen. Is there a way to stop of notification center from coming down if you swipe the screen? I figured out how to stop the control center from coming up if you swipe the bottom on the screen. Now I just need to figure out how to stop the top of the screen from doing the same thing

  • Is there a way to stop the brightness from going up when alarm goes off?

    I have an iPhone 5s running iOS 7.0.6. I plug it in at night next to my bed and use it as an alarm clock. I am running the NiceClock app because it has a great black background with slim red clock numbers (doesn't throw a lot of glare). I am using the built-in Clock app that comes with the current iOS as the alarm (NiceClock, while great for a simple bedside clock with no glare, does not come with an alarm). I set my iPhone's brightness on the lowest possible setting to keep the backlight glare down. It's great. Low glare, and I can still see the time if I wake up in the middle of the night without having to fumble with the iPhone. My problem is when the alarm goes off the brightness level jumps up to maximum. Is there a way to prevent the brightness level of the iPhone from changing when the alarm goes off?

  • Is there a way to stop the launching applications to come to foreground?

    Is there a way to stop the launching applications to come to foreground?
    Back with os 10.3 Panther or 10.4 Tiger the apps opened in the background. That was one of the good differences with Windows. I guess that 10.5 Leopard adopted this annoying Windows behavior. Hope it's gonna change with 10.7 Lion.
    (Of course I am looking for another solution than the AppleScript/Terminal launch that can be found on Google. I'd rather have a plist option to change if it exists!)

    I have found this page http://www.realsoftware.com/listarchives/realbasic-nug/2009-03/msg01167.html where it is proposed to add :
    <key>LSBackgroundOnly</key>
    <string>True</string>
    to MyApp.app/Contents/Info.plist
    I tried this but the app launches totally hidden in the background. Plus you have to set this behavior for every app.
    The open -g option works fine as expected.
    Still looking for a system-wide option, but it doesn't seem to exist.
    About the utility of such an option, I'll just remember you that some machine don't load apps very fast and, instead of waiting for an app to launch, the user will do something else until the app launches. You'll understand that waiting in front of a computer isn't acceptable and having a MBPro isn't possible for everyone.

  • Is there any way to stop the delay between different sets of speakers when using airport express?

    Is there any way to stop the delay between different sets of speakers when using airport express?

    Unfortunately, I don't have either a Slingbox or iHome speakers so I won't be able to reproduce any of the issues you are having. With the fact that you live in large apartment complex would still lead me to believe that Wi-Fi interference may be the reason that you are having streaming issues.
    I suggest you perform a simple site survey, using utilities like iStumbler, or AirRadar to determine potential areas of interference, and then, try to either eliminate or significantly reduce them where possible.

    Hey Rich,
    It is true that you cannot add more than 250 plots to a 2d-axis graph in the REPORT.  One work around is to have the graphs stacked on top of each other and plot 250 to one graph and 250 more to another graph.  I am including a TDR (you have to unzip it) file that has 12 2d-axis stacked on top of each other.  Most of the properties have been made invisible through the graph properties.  You can still see the legends however.  One caveat to this is that you will have issues accessing the different graphs.  You have to do it from a VBScript.  The following line of code worked for me:
    Call GraphObjOpen("2DAxis" + Str(NewAxis))
    Where NewAxis is a variable that defines which graph I want to look at.  You would of course have to loop through the graphs as you add data. 
    Cheers,

  • Is there a way to change a Mail account from POP to IMAP?

    Greetings,
    Is there a way to change a Mail account from POP to IMAP so as not to have to create a new account?
    Thanks

    GMail offers both without you have to pick one or the other? If so, and changing the server doesn't work then you will need to re-establish the account in Mail. Don't delete the old account (or you will lose any downloaded messages) - there's no reason why you shouldn't have both available. You can move the messages from the POP account to another folder and then delete it.

  • Is there a way to put the bluetooth icon on the homepage?

    I pair my iphone with my car when I'm driving. Is there a way to put the bluetooth icon on the homepage so I don't have to go through settings to turn the bluetooth on and off?
    I don't like to leave the bluetooth on all the time because it drains the battery, but it's kinda a pain to have to go through settings everytime I want to use this feature.
    On my last cell phone I could assign a "hot key" to automatically turn the bluetooth on and off. I really liked that. This bluetooth system seems a little dated to me.

    No not yet, hopfully soon.
