My mac mini is running slow.  Bought it in 2009.  Activity monitor shows nothing running that should not be.  Someone suggested it might be my operating system?  Check for software updates, and I am current.  Suggestions?

Open Activity Monitor, Show:>All Processes, sort on CPU%, see if anything using too much CPU% when this happens, click on Memory tab, do you have many Pageouts?
Open Console in Utilities & see if there are any clues or repeating messages when this happens.
Check the S.M.A.R.T. status of the drive in Disk Utilty by highlighting the Drive & looking at the bottom of the window.

  • HT1338 My mac mini will not allow me to update itunes with osx mountain lion 10.5. I check for software updates and it says none.

    what shall' I do?

    10.5 is not Mountain Lion. You need to find out what release of OS X is on your Mac. Go to >About This Mac and tell me what you see.

  • HT1338 What do I do if the Mac I am trying to import files into is telling me that the Migration Assistant on my other computer (Mac OS X 10.4.11), need to be updated - but I already checked for Software Updates and it said they were up to date?

    I am mainly concerned with trying to import my iTune Library into my new MacBook Pro.
    I don't want to lose all my tunes!

    Assuming you have an optical drive in or connected to your MBP, the easiest way to go is to do a backup of your existing iTunes library to DVDs (you may need several) .  In iTunes 9, this is done with selecting File->Library->Back Up to Disc... and following the directions.  I do not see that capability in the current iTunes, though, but if one is using Tiger, one is limited to iTunes 9.
    When the discs are burned, mounting any of the discs on the MBP should cause iTunes (you may need to have it up) to ask if you want to import the files.  It goes pretty smoothly, or at least it has for me in Mt. Lion and Win-7.  It's a little involved but it does work.

  • I'm running Lion on a Late 2008 MacBook Air.  With no other applications running, I can no longer Check for Software Updates.  It gets abut half way through the checking process and then freezes.  The MBA passes Disk Utility. Thoughts?

    How long do you leave it?
    Mine can sometimes sit for quite a while (maybe 10 minutes??) before it finally finishes.
    You could look at the relevant logs via Console (Utilities folder) to see if Software Update is complaining about anything.

    because you do not have a 3rd generation device. The OS Version says so , otherwise you would be at 4.3.5 minimum and also Itunes is also always correct in determining if you have the latest OS ( if not it fetches the newest from Apple's Servers ) . And because a 2nd generation iPod stops at 4.2.1 you can't get the newest OS, because your device is old. Buy a new iPod , they have iOS5 preinstalled.

  • Safari and Firefox quits unexpectedly after attempting to attach or upload a file online. I checked for software updates, but no pending updates were found, I'm running OS X vr 10.5.8.

    I checked for software updates, but no pending updates were found, I'm running OS X vr 10.5.8.

    None of the above answers have helped me.

  • Firefox is asking for software update and it's been running for 4 hours now?????? Is it for 4.0?? If so, I have gotten a pop up saying I already have it... I'm really concerned about this update??.

    What more do you need?????

  • Have an older 17 MacBook Pro, running OS 10.5.8. Software update says everyting is current. Just bought new iPhone 5S. Mac won't recognize phone, says I need newer version of iTunes. Have no problem with computer recognizing old phone or iPad.

    Have an older 17 MacBook Pro, running OS 10.5.8. Software update says everyting is current. Mac doesn't have iCloud, preferences still shows MobileMe. Just bought new iPhone 5S. Mac won't recognize phone, says I need newer version of iTunes. Have no problem with computer recognizing old phone 3 or 1-1/2 year old iPad. I suspect I need to update OS, but as software update isn't telling me to do so, can I? What version would I need to go to?

    Your MacBook Pro can be updated to run Mac OS X "Snow Leopard". Buy it. That will enable you to run the latest iTunes version.

  • My brand new mac mini is super slow

    Dear Apple people of the world,
    I just bought a new entry-level Mac Mini to supplement by 2010 Apple Air. It's the basic model (2.5 GHZ Dual Core Intel core i5, 4gb memory, 500 gb hard drive, intel hd graphics 4000, os x mavericks). As soon as I got it I upgraded to os X 10.9.5 and migrated data from my Apple Air onto the Mac Mini, so that the hard drive is about half full with word and pdf documents. I also installed Chrome, Evernote, Dropbox and a few other apps.
    Problem: The Mac Mini is absurdly slow. Even if I have all apps and windows closed except for one or two, it takes forever to open new apps, sometimes iTunes takes a minute or two to launch, sometimes things freeze, and so on. I can't figure out why it's so slow. Loading emails, reading emails, composing emails, all takes place with significant lag. And if I have more than a few apps open, forget about it, I may as well make a coffee while I try to open a new program.
    Any idea why this might be the case? Anything I can do to fix it? The problem is complicated by the fact that I bought it last week in the USA and am now in Gwrmany, so I can't easily exchange or return or upgrade it.

  • Good Spec Mac Mini got painfully slow

    Hi All
    Following reading posts on this forum, I have upgraded my 2011 Mac Mini from 4gb to 8gb Memory, but it is still painfully slow, with the spinning beach ball always in play.
    I now have a Core i7, 2.7ghz Mac Mini, with 8GB DDR3 memory, 500 mb disc (with 300gb free), running OSX 10.9.1.  I run Microsoft office and Iphoto and thats pretty much it, but even using Iphoto can take seconds for ecah photo to move, and typing emails often means waiting for the text to catch up with my typing.
    In my frustration I copied everything off, re formatted the hard disc, and re installed everything, but its still the same speed.  The Activity monitor shows very little CPU activity, although the memory shows as 7.87GB used out of 8GB, not sure if that is normal.
    Any ideas would be really welcome, as its getting very frustrating to use, when I first purchased the MAC mini it was blindingly fast on everything.
    Thanks
    Martyn

    If you don't already have a current backup, back up all data before doing anything else. This procedure is a diagnostic  test. It changes nothing, for better or worse, and therefore will not, in itself, solve your problem. The backup is necessary on general principle, not because of anything suggested in this comment. There are ways to back up a computer that isn't fully functional. Ask if you need guidance.
    Third-party system modifications are a common cause of usability problems. By a “system modification,” I mean software that affects the operation of other software — potentially for the worse. The procedure will help identify which such modifications you've installed, as well as some other aspects of the configuration that may be related to the problem.
    Don’t be alarmed by the seeming complexity of these instructions — they’re easy to carry out. Here's a brief summary: In each of two steps, you copy a line of text from this web page into a window in another application. You wait about a minute. Then you paste some other text, which will have been copied automatically, back into a reply on this page. The sequence is copy; paste; paste again. That's all there is to it. Details follow.
    You may have started the computer in "safe" mode. Preferably, these steps should be taken while booted in “normal” mode. If the system is now running in safe mode and is bootable in normal mode, reboot as usual. If it only boots in safe mode, use that.
    Below are instructions to enter UNIX shell commands. They do nothing but produce human-readable output. However, you need to think carefully before running any program at the behest of a stranger on a public message board. If you question the safety of the procedure suggested here — which you should — search this site for other discussions in which it’s been followed without any report of ill effects. If you can't satisfy yourself that these instructions are safe, don't follow them.
    The commands will line-wrap or scroll in your browser, but each one is really just a single long line, all of which must be selected. You can accomplish this easily by triple-clicking anywhere in the line. The whole line will highlight, and you can then copy it.
    If you have more than one user account, Step 2 must be taken as an administrator. Ordinarily that would be the user created automatically when you booted the system for the first time. Step 1 should be taken as the user who has the problem, if different. Most personal Macs have only one user, and in that case this paragraph doesn’t apply.
    Launch the Terminal application in any of the following ways: 
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.) 
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens. 
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid. 
    When you launch Terminal, a text window will open with a line already in it, ending either in a dollar sign (“$”) or a percent sign (“%”). If you get the percent sign, enter “sh” and press return. You should then get a new line ending in a dollar sign. 
    Step 1 
    Triple-click anywhere in the line of text below on this page to select it:
    PB=/usr/libexec/PlistBuddy; PR () { [[ "$o" ]] && o=$(sed 's/^/   /' <<< "$o") && printf '\n%s:\n\n%s\n' "$1" "$o"; }; PC () { o=$(grep [^[:blank:]] "$2"); PR "$1"; }; PF () { o=$($PB -c Print "$2" | awk -F'= ' \/$3'/{print $2}'); PR "$1"; }; PN () { [[ $o -eq 0 ]] || printf "\n%s: %s\n" "$1" $o; }; { system_profiler SPSoftwareDataType | sed '8!d;s/^ *//'; o=$(system_profiler SPDiagnosticsDataType | sed '5,6!d'); fgrep -q P <<< "$o" && o=; PR "POST"; o=$(($(vm_stat | awk '/Pageo/{sub("\\.",""); print $2}')/256)); o=$((o>=1024?o:0));  PN "Pageouts (MiB)"; s=( $(sar -u 1 10 | sed '$!d') ); [[ ${s[4]} -lt 90 ]] && o=$( printf 'User %s%%\t\tSystem %s%%' ${s[1]} ${s[3]} ) || o=; PR "Total CPU usage"; [[ "$o" ]] && o=$(ps acrx -o comm,ruid,%cpu | sed '2!d'); PR "Max %CPU by process (name, UID, %)"; o=$(kextstat -kl | grep -v com\\.apple | cut -c53- | cut -d\< -f1); PR "Loaded extrinsic kernel extensions"; o=$(launchctl list | sed 1d | awk '!/0x|com\.apple|org\.(x|openbsd)|\.[0-9]+$/{print $3}'); PR "Loaded extrinsic user agents"; o=$(launchctl getenv DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES); PR "Inserted libraries"; PC "cron configuration" /e*/cron*; o=$(crontab -l | grep [^[:blank:]]); PR "User cron tasks"; PC "Global launchd configuration" /e*/lau*; PC "Per-user launchd configuration" ~/.lau*; PF "Global login items" /L*/P*/loginw* Path; PF "Per-user login items" L*/P*/*loginit* Name; PF "Safari extensions" L*/Saf*/*/E*.plist Bundle | sed 's/\..*$//;s/-[1-9]$//'; o=$(find ~ $TMPDIR.. \( -flags +sappnd,schg,uappnd,uchg -o ! -user $UID -o ! -perm -600 \) | wc -l); PN "Restricted user files"; cd; o=$(find -L /S*/L*/E* {,/}L*/{A*d,Compon,Ex,In,Keyb,Mail/Bu,P*P,Qu,Scripti,Servi,Spo}* -type d -name Contents -prune | while read d; do ID=$($PB -c 'Print :CFBundleIdentifier' "$d/Info.plist") || ID=; ID=${ID:-No bundle ID}; egrep -qv "^com\.apple\.[^x]|Accusys|ArcMSR|ATTO|HDPro|HighPoint|driver\.stex|hp-fax|JMicron|microsoft\.MDI|print|SoftRAID" <<< $ID && printf '%s\n\t(%s)\n' "${d%/Contents}" "$ID"; done); PR "Extrinsic loadable bundles"; o=$(find /u*/{,*/}lib -type f -exec sh -c 'file -b "$1" | grep -qw shared && ! codesign -v "$1"' {} {} \; -print); PR "Unsigned shared libraries"; o=$(system_profiler SPFontsDataType | egrep "Valid: N|Duplicate: Y" | wc -l); PN "Font problems"; for d in {,/}L*/{La,Priv,Sta}*; do o=$(ls -A "$d"); PR "$d"; done; } 2> /dev/null | pbcopy; echo $'\nStep 1 done'
    Copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. Then click anywhere in the Terminal window and paste (command-V). I've tested these instructions only with the Safari web browser. If you use another browser, you may have to press the return key after pasting.
    The command may take up to a few minutes to run, depending on how many files you have and the speed of the computer. Wait for the line "Step 1 done" to appear below what you entered. The output of the command will beautomatically copied to the Clipboard. All you have to do is paste into a reply to this message by pressing command-Vagain. Please don't copy anything from the Terminal window. No typing is involved in this step.
    Step 2 
    Remember that you must be logged in as an administrator for this step. Do as in Step 1 with this line:
    PR () { [[ "$o" ]] && o=$(sed 's/^/   /' <<< "$o") && printf '\n%s:\n\n%s\n' "$1" "$o"; }; { o=$(sudo launchctl list | sed 1d | awk '!/0x|com\.(apple|openssh|vix\.cron)|org\.(amav|apac|calendarse|cups|dove|isc|ntp|post[fg]|x)/{print $3}'); PR "Loaded extrinsic daemons"; o=$(sudo defaults read com.apple.loginwindow LoginHook); PR "Login hook"; o=$(sudo crontab -l | grep [^[:blank:]]); PR "Root cron tasks"; o=$(syslog -k Sender kernel -k Message CReq 'GPU |hfs: Ru|I/O e|find tok|n Cause: -|NVDA\(|pagin|timed? ?o' | tail -n25 | awk '/:/{$4=""; print}'); PR "Log check"; } 2>&- | pbcopy; echo $'\nStep 2 done'
    This time you'll be prompted for your login password, which you do have to type. Nothing will be displayed when you type it. Type it carefully and then press return. You may get a one-time warning to be careful. Heed that warning, but don't post it. If you see a message that your username "is not in the sudoers file," then you're not logged in as an administrator.
    You can then quit Terminal. Please note:
    ☞ Steps 1 and 2 are all copy-and-paste — type only your login password when prompted.
    ☞ When you type your password, you won't see what you're typing.
    ☞ If you don’t have a password, set one before taking Step 2. If that’s not possible, skip the step.
    ☞ Step 2 might not produce any output, in which case the Clipboard will be empty. Step 1 will always produce something.
    ☞ The commands don't change anything, and merely running them will do neither good nor harm.
    ☞ Remember to post the output of both steps (unless you had to skip Step 2.) It's already in the Clipboard after you complete each step. You don't have to copy it. Just paste into a reply    
    ☞ If any personal information, such as your name or email address, appears in the output of either command, anonymize it before posting. Usually that won't be necessary.
    ☞ Don't post what you see in the Terminal window. The output is copied automatically to the Clipboard.
    ☞ Don't paste the output of Step 1 into the Terminal window. Paste it into a reply.

  • Mac Mini boots very slow with Mavericks (after security update)

    Hi,
    my Mac Mini boots very slow after I've installed Maveriks. I did two clean installs by now, seemed to work OK after the second one but after the latest safety update (2014-002) the boot time is up to 5+ minutes. Starting Safari or other software takes addtional time. See below for system specs, Etrecheck and log. Any ideas what could cause this? According to the update history I did install the security update 2014-002 twice on the same day although I cannot remember doing such a thing.
    Thanks Joerg

  • HT201541 Our Mac-Mini has gotten slower and slower. Is there a utility that would help speed it up?

    Our 4 plus year old Mac-Mini has gotten slower and slower.  Is there a utility that would help speed it up or is there another?

    Hello! I’ve offered the steps below to similar posts in the past and they helped out getting to the solution (or at least find the cause). I suggest them to you too in this case. It will take you about 30 minutes or less to do these, depending on how bad the problem on your Mac is.
    The goal here is to boot your Mac to the so-called Recovery partition where you’ll have a chance to repair the disk and the disk permissions using the Disk Utility and Password Utility. This might solve your issue and even if it doesn’t- it’s still a decent maintenance step to perform. These steps won’t erase your data or reinstall your Mac in any way if you follow instructions carefully.
    Here’s how:
    1/ Make sure your computer is completely shut down.
    2/ You’ll have to be quick next: Press the Mac’s power button. As soon as you either hear the loud chime, or see the display light up - usually after a second or 2 - on your keyboard press [cmd] + [r] Keep these keys on your keyboard pressed until you either see an Apple Logo with a loading bar or a spinning gear.
    After a few minutes, you’ll be presented with a Utilities screen. This is the Recovery partition. If this step is already giving you problems, try using a USB-keyboard. It doesn’t have to be an Apple-keyboard. If you have a Windows-tailored keyboard laying around, use the “Windows-flag” key in stead of the [cmd]-key and it should also work.
    3/ Choose Disk Utility and click [continue]
    Disk Utility will display your computer’s harddrive in the left column. The default name for it is “Macintosh HD” and is usually the second one from the top. Click on it and click on the [verify disk] button. This will check your “Macintosh HD” harddrive partition for errors. If found, click [repair disk]  unless you have a Fusion drive in your Mac and it says [fix] instead of [repair disk] please tell us before you continue! For a screenshot of what I mean, check this article from Apple: http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202574
    4/ Once done with the verifying or repairing of your “Macintosh HD” click [repair disk permissions]
    This will check your partition for permissions errors. A common myth about this feature is that it will fix all permissions issues on your Mac, which is not true, but it will fix most systemwide issues. Also, here is a list of error messages that you can safely ignore if they pop up:
    http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203172
    5/ Lastly we shall do a permissions/Access Control List repair on specifically your user’s home folder with a somewhat hidden tool in the Recovery partition. Close Disk Utility and find the menu called “utilities” in the top left corner of your computer’s display. It’s in between the menus “edit” and “window” Don’t be confused with the menu called “os x utilities” 
    Choose Terminal. A somewhat old-fashioned looking window will pop up, waiting for a text command from you. This is the Terminal.
    After the # type: resetpassword and press return. Note that there is no space between ‘reset’ and ‘password’ 
    What you’ll see next is an rectangular window that gives you the option to reset passwords. We are not going to that, however. Instead, click on “Macintosh HD” at the top. In the pull-down menu below that, choose your user's accountname. Skip all the rest and at the very bottom click the [reset]-button.
    A spinning gear will appear and may stay on for a second or several minutes. It’s hard to predict exactly how long.
    If you have multiple users on your Mac, I advise you to repeat this step for all your users.
    We’re ready to reboot your Mac now. Click on the Apple Menu and choose “startup disk” Choose to boot from “Macintosh HD” Please let us know if this solved your issue, or if the steps above did not work, or could not be performed for some reason.
    If they worked I suggest you do these steps everytime your Mac becomes slow.

  • Mac mini VPN headless, slow graphics performance when no monitor plugged in

    I am using a Mac mini, headless, with no monitor, keyboard or mouse, via VPN from a Windows machine over a LAN. Everything works fine and setting everything up was a breeze. However, something very odd I noticed was that if my Mac mini does not have a monitor plugged in to its video output, the rendering of the graphics over the VPN is very slow. It is most noticable when hovering over the dock and activating the animations etc, though it is noticable all the time. It's so bad that it would be IMPOSSIBLE to watch a video clip or simple animation. It's as though frames are being dropped. Now, this can be immediately fixed if a monitor is plugged into the Mac mini and turned on, and the VPN to the Mac mini from my Windows machine works flawlessly and the graphics are rendered perfectly, with little to no delay or frame skipping.
    I have a hunch that the Mac could be disabling some kind of graphics acceleration when the monitor is not plugged in, but I am not a Mac expert by far, this is my first Mac experience. It was purchased solely for the VPN and headless use, so if I can't get it working properly, it's a waste.
    Note, I have tried several VPN client/viewer combinations and they do not change the situation.
    Thanks in advance.

    Also, when I try to use the remote with the Mac mini (pressing the menu button), over VPN with no monitor attached to the machine, I simply get a white blank screen until I press the menu button again.

    I must have been HALF ASLEEP when I wrote this.
    I do not mean VPN, I mean VNC!!. Sorry for the confusion.

  • My mac mini is incredibly slow, but I have plenty of memory available.  Why?

    Why?My mac mini is incredibly slow, but I have plenty of memory available. My machine has 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5 processor and 2GB 1333 MHz DDR3 for Memory.  Any idea what I can do?

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad and start typing the name.
    The title of the Console window should be All Messages. If it isn't, select
              SYSTEM LOG QUERIES ▹ All Messages
    from the log list on the left. If you don't see that list, select
              View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar at the top of the screen.
    Click the Clear Display icon in the toolbar. Then take an action that isn't working the way you expect. Select any messages that appear in the Console window. Copy them to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. Paste into a reply to this message by pressing command-V.
    The log contains a vast amount of information, almost all of which is irrelevant to solving any particular problem. When posting a log extract, be selective. A few dozen lines are almost always more than enough.
    Please don't indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
    Please don't post screenshots of log messages—post the text.
    Some private information, such as your name or email address, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.
