    Sticky Mouse on Screensaver Awakening

    I use a trackpad on a new powerbook. When I deactivate the screensaver, through moving my mouse or a keypad touch, the mouse wont move. I'll move my finger all over the trackpad, but the mouse is stuck. Sometimes it unsticks after 15-20 seconds, or sometimes I have to toggle the dashboard or...

    Screen wont sleep

    Simple as that. Computer will sleep, and screen will turn off when it does, but my screen wont sleep on its own.

    More Problems with Safari

    Ok, but then why should I have problems closing it though? I think I may have found the solution to the first one. Saft has a setting known as "block html refreshing". I believe that should do it.

    More Problems with Safari

    I have many taps open. Like 10. And when I leave Safari open for like a week then try to close it, I get the spinning beachball of death eternall, and I have to force quit it. So, I tried an experiment, closing one tab at a time. Each tab took atleast 30 seconds if not more to close. I tried...

    Safari freezes when I try to close it

    A saft update has been released. And its been this way since 10.3.9. I made it up myself. When I made the switch (10.3.8) it seemed really easy. I made a full switch, even to using a trackpad, in under 2 days. So I thought to myself "hey, this learning curve isnt steep at all". Then 3.9...

    Actions to take to prevent slowdowns/incrase system performance w/o reboot?

    I just let cocktail do its pilot. System and internet cache clean, permissions repair, log rotate (dont know what that does), and cron scripts. For Safari, its also useful to clean out icons and history. Then just like once I notice those dont fix a slowdown, I restart and its back up to pure...

    What to do when your mac slows to a crawl?

    Does it defrag the hard drive though?

    What to do when your mac slows to a crawl?

    Reboot. Everything speeds up again. Happens when you leave it on for weeks. Also, running the cron scripts helps. Get cocktail, and run the pilot every few days. It automatically repairs permissions, cleans caches, runs cron scripts, and rotates log files. If safari is the slow one, clear your...
