    Power Mac G5 Will Not Wake From Sleep, Fans Blowing Full Blast

    Matt, I can't help, I am in the exact same situation as you. Except my dual 2.0Mhz is two years old. When it was new, it did it. And the "turn the option off that puts the harddrive to sleep when possible" thing helped. But after newest OS upgrade, the problem is back. C'mon Apple, we know the...

    I'll be damned, that actually works!!! It must be set in the firmware, huh? Thank you.

    function keys on iBook, how to make functional

    In OS 9 there was a setting to make the F keys of a portable work like normal, without having to use the fn key. I can't find it in OS X... ?

    How to remove resource fork?

    Thanks, I tried grimripper, it seems to work fine. One thing though: 10.2 recreates the desktop icon immediately. And isn't that in the resource fork?

    How to remove resource fork?

    I am unexperienced with the terminal. I suppose I have to write the full path?

    How to remove resource fork?

    When I send attachments to lots of people, some PeeCee users apparently have problems (two attachments or Mime error messages) due to the resource fork in Mac files. How do I remove the resource fork before attaching?

    Help, can't make a clean install

    Hi, My big Mac (DP 800) badly needs a clean reinstall of OSX 10.2. It is crashing all the time. But when I run the installer disk, contrary to what I have read there is no option for "Archive and Install". The option button should be right after I select the install disk. But it just isn't...

    I have just received iMac 17" with OS X 10.2!!!!!!

    Mine was shipped from Taiwan Tuesday, and I was told that it could be here Friday. But it came to the other shipper in Ireland just too late, so it won't come until next week. And Monday is a frigging bank holiday, so that means three more days, dammit! From your pics it looks awesome, the...

    Option-booting does not present OS9, only OSX

    Thanks, Lethe. I wish I could find something less... "hacky" though.

    Option-booting does not present OS9, only OSX

    ... How do I do that? I should say I have never used any bare Unix in my life. This is during startup, yes?

    Option-booting does not present OS9, only OSX

    I'll tell you why I need to know: there is an Apple app called Open Firmware Password, which makes it impossible to use another startup disk or to use the machine as Target Disk. This is great, but if the system is fucked, how do you then get at the disk? The software says that with a...

    Option-booting does not present OS9, only OSX

    I have an iMac and a G4, and on both of them I have the same problem: When booting pressing option, I am supposed to be able to select OS9 or OSX, but I am not. There is only the icon for OSX to select. Why the heck would this be?

    black screen after sleep

    I have a new iMac and a dual 800 G4. BOTH of them sometime "wake up" after sleep with a black screen. The screen does not wake up. I thought it might be hardware in the G4, because it had some problems also under OS 9. But now the iMac has shown the same problem once. I use 10.1.4 on both...

    How to hide Classic starting up on login?

    How do I make Classic not only start up on login, but also do it in the background? Using "login" syspref and selecting "hide" does not seem to make a differ.

    Airport/Internet problems

    That's it!! I had totally forgotten that in an attack of paranoia a few months ago I bound it to the two machines I had. I have now added the iMac's airport card's MAC address (hardware address) to the base stations' allowed addresses, and it is on the Net now. Took 2 minutes. Thanks very...

    Airport/Internet problems

    Hi I just got an iMac (flat panel) (wonderful machine), running X. I have an Airport base station which is connected to the Net and working fine for my other machines. The iMac is connecting fine to the base station and the network. ...But still there is simply no Net connection. No...

    AirPort login failure

    I have an AirPort network I created on my Cube ("winona" after ms. Ryder). And then I have an iBook on AirPort. It works fine under OS9, but I possibly do not know how to log on to the network correctly under OSX (and get to the Cube's files.) I am trying to use the Go menu in the finder, the...
