When I open my MacBook Pro for the first time each day, I find condensation on the glass.  What can I do to prevent the condensation?

This thread and all the followups are hilarious, if it weren't such a serious problem. OP, you may want to add a bit more information on how this drippy screen problem occurs: where do you live, what are the weather conditions, what are you doing with the Mac when it occurs, etc.
Yes, extreme moisture, to the extent of causing visible condensation, is Very Bad News for any electronic device, and more so with one that isn't tropicalized like the Mac. Besides trying to avoid subjecting it to such extreme temperature changes, using some kind of desiccant to absorb close range moisture and avoidint its use until it dried out, I can suggest placing some kind of absorbent material between the display and the keyboard to prevent the moisture on the glass from finding its way into the computer. Like the protective poliethylene foam protector that came with the Mac when new. Or something like RadTech's ScreenSavrz: http://www.radtech.us/Products/NotebookScreenSavrz.aspx

  • Can only connect to enterprise wifi the first time each day, then does not reconnect and got the "Associati​on Failed" error

    To save battery, I leave my wifi off when the TP's screen is locked.  At home, my TP has no problem reconnecting to wifi after the screen is unlocked.  However, at work, which uses enterprise wifi, I can only connect the first time.  If I lock the screen and then unlock it (causing the wifi to turn off and on again) then the TP will not reconnect and I would get the "Association failed" error over and over again.  If I were to turn the TP off and on again, I would still get the same error.  Here's the strange part, if I come in work the next day, it would be able to connect to the wifi.  If I were to leave the wifi on all the time, it would not disconnect even if I lock the screen.  Now if I were to turn off the wifi and then turn it on again, the TP would not reconnect.  So it seems like the TP can only connect the first time each day....very strange...and frustrating.

    Scimmia is right.  But you AcousticBruce are still very wrong.  You claim there were no error messages.  Yet after much proding and denial you finally provide small portions of error messages which fully identify the problem and can be found in many other posts in these forums.  Yet still, you haven't actually provided full output - instead you paraphrased the output after a couple of "//" symbols.
    If you don't give us the actual output we can't help - except in this case the error is so common we could very easily help.  So could the wiki page on wpa_supplicant if you had read it, as your problem is explictly listed there in a "NOTE" box.  But more importantly if you are reluctant to give us actual output we will not want to help you.
    This issue would have been solved instantly if you would have provided the actual output instead of lying about it.

  • When i open my macbook pro- the screen lights up and then goes black-

    When I open my Macbook pro- the screen lights up and then goes black- keybook stays backlite- can not get screen to come back on. Must reboot-
    thoughts-?? Macbook is 6 months old and on second hard drive ( failure after 45 days).

    Hey! exact same thing happens to me... I use the keyboard shortcut to turn off the screen which is ctrl - shift - eject button. Then just poke a key and it wakes up again fine, it doesn't fix the problem but at elast you don't have to reboot. x

  • When I open my Macbook Pro it shows past date

    Hi -
    Sometimes (pretty consistently lately) when I open my Macbook Pro it shows the screen that was there when I closed it, but everything is greyed.  There is a line at the bottom that is moving across and when it finishes the color goes back to normal.  But even then, the time is from when I closed it, and the computer is unresponsive.  It will sometimes sit in this state for a couple of minutes or longer.
    This is a six month old Macbook Pro and this happens pretty regularly, and has off and on since I first got it.
    Is this just no more than annoying?  I've been using Apple laptops since 2005 and never had this happen until this machine (which is my third personal one - I support two others).  Any ideas on cause?
    Thanks
    Craig

    Some users have reported solving this problem by resetting the NVRAM (PRAM.)
    If you've installed something called "iCleanMemory," or any other third-party software that is supposed to "clean" or "free up" memory, remove it according to the developer's instructions after backing up all data. Reboot and test. If there's no change, continue.
    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    The purpose of the test is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party software that loads automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, or by corruption of certain system caches. 
    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. Note: If FileVault is enabled on some models, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and  Wi-Fi on certain models. The next normal boot may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin. Test while in safe mode. Same problem? After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

  • When you register your credit card for the first time in Mac App store, Does Apple put through a 1 dollar charge to verify the card ?

    When you register your credit card for the first time in Mac App store, Does Apple put through a 1 dollar charge to verify the card ? Please I need this answer so as to download the latest Mountain Lion upgrade. Thnx in advance.

    The Apple Support Communities are an international user to user technical support forum. As a man from Mexico, Spanish is my native tongue. I do not speak English very well, however, I do write in English with the aid of the Mac OS X spelling and grammar checks. I also live in a culture perhaps very very different from your own. When offering advice in the ASC, my comments are not meant to be anything more than helpful and certainly not to be taken as insults.
    Many folks have reported that this is true. However, the charge is not taken to the second step of completing the charge and the $1 revolves back to your account.

    It was working fine and I had no problems, and then one day I tried opening a window and it froze. When I tried quiting the program my whole window went black. The x to the close the window doesn't work. The only option I have in my tool bar is Firefox and nothing happens when I try to quit firefox. Every time I try to shut down my computer Firefox prevents it. I haven't updated Firefox yet, so it's an older program, but only by a month or two. What's going on and how do I fix it?

    This is the first time it's ever happened. I downloaded the new operating system for Firefox but I can't install it until the Firefox currently running on my laptop quits, which it won't.

  • My macbook pro is crashing several times a day

    my macbook pro is crashing several times a day. i took it to be repaired and the logic board has been replaced. if anything it is now worse. it has crashed when previewing video, in keynote, linking to an external monitor, in photoshop, scrolling down a web page, etc etc . the log records kernel panics. i wondered if upgrading the operating system would help so am now running lion but it just crashed so that hasn't solved it. has anyone else had this and if so how did you resolve it?

    Your problem is likely one of these. In particular, I've seen several instances where virtualbox doesn't play well with Mavericks. I'm not sure what the other ones are.

  • HT1694 The text has disappeared from my emails in my inbox. What can I do to get the text back?

    The text has disappeared from my emails in my inbox. What can I do to get the text back?

    Try closing the Mail app via the taskbar and see if the email text shows when you re-open the app : from the home screen (i.e. not with the Mail app 'open' on-screen) double-click the home button to bring up the taskbar, then press and hold any of the apps on the taskbar for a couple of seconds or so until they start shaking, then press the '-' in the top left of the Mail app to close it, and touch any part of the screen above the taskbar so as to stop the shaking and close the taskbar.
    If that doesn't fix it they try a reset : press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.

  • What is the cracking sound when I open my MacBook Pro lid?

    When opening and closing MacBook Pro lid, it makes a cracking sound. Does anyone have an idea what it could be? It's not the hard drive because Geek Squad ran a test and everything passed.

    Try this:  Loosen the screws in the rear of the MBP (by the hinge) and re-torque them.  See if that will alleviate the problem. You will need a 00 Philips driver.

  • Put to Sleep and  Don't wake up when i open my macbook pro

    Hello,
    i have a Macbook pro 17' (2,33ghz) using leopard 10.5.2 with all the latest update.
    Everytime i put my computer to sleep for more than 10 minutes (random time), when i try to wake up nothing happen, i hear a strange noise of the HD for about 2 seconds and the screen stay Black.
    When i close the computer again, the light stay On, when i open the computer again nothing happen, the screen is black, no buttons works, nothing happen.
    So i have to press the Power button for a few seconds and then turn on my Mac again.
    this happen to me every day !
    i try:
    Remove the charger = Same Problem
    With the charger = Same Problem
    With Apple Bluetooth mouse = Same Problem
    Without Apple Bluetooth mouse = Same Problem
    With External HD = Same Problem
    Without External HD = Same Problem
    when i try to wake up the Mac, I wait for more than 10 minutes and nothing happen.
    i see the Log's and i can't see antything Wrong.
    this is not the first time i have this problem
    in 10.4.8 i have the problem, when i update to 10.4.9 "fix the problem" until 10.5.2
    i have the AppleCare.
    i dont know if this is a Hardware or Software problem and if the guarantee cover this?
    thinkin that this could be a HD problem so i check in the disk utility and everyting is OK.
    Thanks!

    Well. in my searching i find an """"Answer"""
    Some body was talking about that the new's Mac have something called "Safe Sleep" so when someone sleep the Mac the Information of the Ram make a copy in the HD this can take for 30 seconds to a minute. In this time, if you move the mac or do something else, generate a error and corrupt the Information of the ram and the Mac stop working.
    Say that to remove this "Safe Sleep" have to open the terminal and:
    The Unix command to disable SafeSleep is:
    sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0
    To re-enable SafeSleep, the command is:
    sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 3
    Maybe Apple going to Fix this in future Updates.
    Sorry for my English !
