Macbook wakes up when pulling out the USB mouse.

When the lit is closed, the computer is asleep, the mouse is plugged in and I want to move it.
If I disconnect the mouse the computer makes "that wake up sound" even if the lit is closed.
Is this allright or could I do something?
(Sorry for the bad english.)

It probably isn't a problem as it should go back to sleep fairly quick. When you remove the mouse the Mac senses a change and wakes for a minute to adjust for that fact. Just give it a minute to be sure the hard drive has stopped again before moving.

    Clean Install of Snow Leopard
    Be sure to make a backup first because the following procedure will erase
    the drive and everything on it.
         1. Boot the computer using the Snow Leopard Installer Disc or the Disc 1 that came
             with your computer.  Insert the disc into the optical drive and restart the computer.
             After the chime press and hold down the  "C" key.  Release the key when you see
             a small spinning gear appear below the dark gray Apple logo.
         2. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue
             button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu.
             After DU loads select the hard drive entry from the left side list (mfgr.'s ID and drive
             size.)  Click on the Partition tab in the DU main window.  Set the number of
             partitions to one (1) from the Partitions drop down menu, click on Options button
             and select GUID, click on OK, then set the format type to MacOS Extended
             (Journaled, if supported), then click on the Apply button.
         3. When the formatting has completed quit DU and return to the installer.  Proceed
             with the OS X installation and follow the directions included with the installer.
         4. When the installation has completed your computer will Restart into the Setup
             Assistant. Be sure you configure your initial admin account with the exact same
             username and password that you used on your old drive. After you finish Setup
             Assistant will complete the installation after which you will be running a fresh
             install of OS X.  You can now begin the update process by opening Software
             Update and installing all recommended updates to bring your installation current.

    Plug it back in and restore it from the backup that is made everytime you sync your phone. iPhone forums are here:

    I've partitoned Windows swell and it says the same thing? I'm trying to live capture from my Sony Camcorder through Elgato but I just get the above message?

    This means that the backups were made with a later version than the version currently on the phone. You will have to update the phone to 6.1.3 to be able to restore the backup. You can restore a backup made with an earlier version, but not with a later version.

  • New iphone - when it crashes? pulling out the sim

    Hi,
    Have a new iphone and am delighted (except for the lack of 3 g) however it crashed (only once). It held the sleep wake button, then i tried the reset combination. Eventually it worked after about 40-45 seconds.
    Because there is no option to pull out the battery (like my old Nokia N95 which never stopped crashing), I was wondering whether pulling out the sim might work to force a restart???
    It's not ideal, but the time the pone crashed was ultra mission critical and I needed the phone function real quick.
    thanks
    tom

    It's much quicker to put the phone in Airplane mode, and then turn it off, if all you want to do is to re-establish a connection to the cell tower. Taking the SIM card out and back in again, will effectively do the same thing, but takes longer; it won't reset/reboot the phone though - only pressing on the sleep and home buttons *until the Apple logo appears* will achieve this.

  • My iphone I fell to the ground yesterday, from a height of approximately 1 meter. after this I trailed off, now only turns on when I plug the usb but the apple appears and just turn off and turn back, there is nothing more that I recommend doing?

    With that behavior you need to take the iPhone to an Apple store genius bar for an out-of-warranty replacement.  In the US that is $269 for the iPhone 5.

  • Pulling out the end of a song SHIFTS where the song is!

    I'm doing a clip with a song in it..I've spliced the intro together a few times to give extra time for narration that won't conflict with singing, should the presenter want to make comments.
    Now, I get to the final segment, and I'd like to just pull out the end of that segment to the end of the song. I test play it, and everything's fine.
    Then, I render.
    When I test play after rendering, it's like where the song was "shifted" over, when all I did was extend where the clip ends.
    Do I need to start over, or is this just a dumb user mistake?
    thanks!

    I know you think you've made it perfectly clear to us what you're doing.
    I've read your post three times and I have no idea what you're talking about because you're not using the proper lingo.
    a clip with a song in it< </div>
    You probably mean a sequence. Sequences are made of clips.
    I've spliced the intro together a few times to give extra time for narration that won't conflict with singing, should the presenter want to make comments.< </div>
    SPLICED? Presenter?
    the final segment,< </div>
    Segment of what, the sequence or part of clip?
    and I'd like to just pull out the end of that segment to the end of the song. < </div>
    Do you mean move it? Or extend it? Or actually make it longer by stretching the audio?
    I test play it, and everything's fine.< Okay. </div>
    When I test play after rendering, it's like where the song was "shifted" over, when all I did was extend where the clip ends.< </div>
    What did you have to render? You should not have had to render anything.

  • I got a usb charger for my 4th gen Ipod touch that at first allowed my to charge and transfer music from my laptop to the Ipod now nothing happens when I plug the usb

    I got a usb charger for my 4th gen Ipod touch that at first allowed my to charge and transfer music from my laptop to the Ipod now nothing happens when I plug the usb cord and Ipod into my laptop. Its mac so it is an apple system. I am wondering how I can fix this problem I am not very good with techy stuff so this is very confusing how it was working and it just stopped.

    Hi johnsmiff99,
    That is never fun when your iPod touch does not show up on your Mac. Take a look at the article below to walk you through on getting it to show back up on your iTunes. It is very easy to read so you wont feel overwhelmed with to much techy jargon. Let me know if you get this worked out.

  • I have a set of 3 USB disk connected to my TC via a USB hud. I usually swithc the TC at night. When I restart the next day it stucks in amber state. when I disconnect the USB hub where my discs connects and restart, it start properly. Any hints?

    I have a set of 3 USB disks connected to my Time capsule (TC) via a USB hub. I usually switch the TC at night. When I restart the next day it stucks in amber state. When I disconnect the USB hub where my discs connects and restart, the TC will start properly. Any hints?

    LOL.. don't switch off the TC.. this is fairly typical behaviour..
    Or try a different usb hub.. but you could well and truly run out of hubs before you fix the problem.
    Are you running latest firmware for your TC?
    What error message is coming up in the airport utility.. amber led is a fault indicator.. look up what the actual fault is and see if it is for instance overloading the usb. You are using a powered hub??
    Get one bigger USB hard disk instead of 3 smaller ones.

  • A year ago I brought a 1 TB hard drive (My Passport), I have not used it for over 4 months and now when I use the USB cord to connect it to my mac, it does not register the hard drive.  Does anyone know why this is happening?

    A year ago I brought a 1 TB hard drive (My Passport), I have not used it for over 4 months and now when I use the USB cord to connect it to my mac, it does not register the hard drive.  Does anyone know why this is happening?

    The beeps could be caused by something as simple as a loose internal wire or connection.  If it is under warranty (not sure how long that is, as WD drives range from 1 to 5 years depending on the model's series - I think "my passport" drives are 3 years) you could contact WD and ask them about it.
    If it is out of warranty, you could also try opening the case and check the connections - the drive may be fine, and there have been posts on TomsHardware forums of people getting the beeps, opening up the case and the drive is fine, just some wire worked loose.

  • Is it possible for an external device to burn out the USB port?

    I think the available current of the USB port is 500 mA. If a USB device can work with a current of 500mA ~ 600mA, is it possible for it to burn out the USB port with 600mA current (larger than the safe 500mA) when connected? Or the port can never provide a current larger than 500mA?
    Thank you.
    P.S. The USB device I worry about is a pair of USB warm slipper (to be worn on feet in cold winter). Its label reads "5V / 2.5W", which should be safe. But I once connected it and a mouse to a USB hub, then to a single MBP USB port, and the mouse stopped working in a few seconds, and came back normal only after I switched it to another port. Now the slipper is connected to a port by itself, but I am just afraid that the USB slipper can go malfunctioning all of a sudden and drain a lot of current to burn the USB port.

    ...But I once connected it and a mouse to a USB hub, then to a single MBP USB port, and the mouse stopped working in a few seconds, and came back normal only after I switched it to another port....
    Likely the hub is only barely able to handle the 500mA requirement.  Many powered USB hubs have "cheap" power adapters and can't handle any high surge situations.  Many devices like heating elements and motors have "surge currents" where the initial powering on of the device has a much larger current flow than during normal usage.  Think of it like riding a bicycle.  You have to push hard on the pedals to start off, but it's easier to pedal after the bike is moving.
    ...Now the slipper is connected to a port by itself...
    If you mean the device is plugged into the Mac's USB port, then you should know that all Macs for the past few years provide more than the 500mA minimum for USB.  Some other computers also provide higher power.  But most USB hubs I've seen were limited to 500mA.
    If you are plugged into the hub, not the Mac, then the power adapter for your hub may be barely adequate or possibly even defective.
    ...but I am just afraid that the USB slipper can go malfunctioning all of a sudden and drain a lot of current to burn the USB port.
    IMHO, I would stop using the heater with any computer USB port.  There is always the possibility that eventually something could short out in the heating element and cause a catestrophic surge through the USB port.  The electronics in computers are quite delicate and I'd be paranoid about the device damaging my computer.  (BTW, I have an electrical engineering background so I'm paranoid about power issues all the time anyway. )  Even if the heater is plugged into a hub, the surge current could damage the other devices plugged into the hub.  While not as catastrophic as a dead computer, I'd still be irked to have to replace my mouse, digital camera, printer, webcam, etc.
    Instead, I recommend plugging the heater into it's own "power adapter."  One of those that give a USB port to charge a cellphone or whatever.  Plug the power adapter into a power strip.  Place the power strip in the floor next to the slippers.  That way you can conviniently turn the strip on and off with your toes as you're putting on your slippers.
