Question about Apple iBook G4 Mac Notebook
My brother has special needs and I bought a little ibook g4 for him to get on the Internet. That is all he does - MySpace, Yahoo, YouTube and some other websites. This is our first day using a Mac so learning.............His computer just locked up while on the Internet. The multi colored wheel was spinning and would not let us close out any of hte 4 screens he had open. When that occurs what is the recommended steps? Is there a way to manually shut off the computer like on a pc one would use task manager (ctrl-alt-del)???
We just turned off by holding down power button for 4 or 5 seconds. I am concerned that his system will crash if he is constantly doing that? Then again, I gave the system 6months. Given his severe special needs I felt if he made it 6 mos with the ibook it was a success.
He does love it and it is soo wonderful to see him with such pride over owning his own laptop!!
Thank you for your assistance and any additional "tips" you can quickly send would be greatly appreciated.
Happy Holidays to you!!!
You can go to the Apple (top left) and on the drop down menu, select "force quit"(which is similar to CTRL-ALT-delete on PC) and quit the program that is locking up.The fact that it locks up with 4 screns oprned tells me that the iBook may need more memory.I believe that the iBooks come with 256 MB. You can add memory and keep this from happening.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
