Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When waking my Apple Intel Mac Pro 2010 desktop from a long period of sleep I am given only a black screen with a swirling beach ball. I am tech savvy, and have been working at this issue with no result. Whatever aid you can offer is much appreciated, and feel free to speak in any term of tech skill; ill do my best to keep up. Thank you. As a final note, I began experiencing this issue after connecting a series of large external drives, however, I continue to have the issue with the drives disconnected. So I am unsure of how they play into the whole affair. Thank you once more.

Hi
hope you have fixed the problem by now. It sounds like the system is unsure of which disk is your startup disc. Do you have copies of your systems on the other discs? Not sure about this...

Apple mac will not stay in sleep mode


Make sure you do not have wake up on lan enabled in the network settings a good way to even do this is unplug or disconnect the thing from the internet. Wake up on land will wake the computero ut of sleep mode each time a packet is delivered to it.


Thanks I hope this helps.

Waking from sleep mod


Hello
The hinge is a very fragile part of the Macbook. In the hinge goes all the video and sound cables, as well as the backlight power. You can have a hardware problem here with your connectors.
However the sleep mode can also take its time to wake up:
- The hard dive needs to wake its 5400 rpms - The system has to wake - The video has to wake
I would think that a fast internal hard drive, as a SSD drive for example, will wake up much faster.
Hope this helps

Computer will not go into sleep mode


External drives (hard drive, DVD burner, iPod, USB drive), printer, a worn out mouse button, debris in/on the keyboard, and cats are all things that can cause your computer to refuse to sleep (or wake it shortly thereafter).  Rule out these first.  I have had the same problem in the past.  It is almost always one of these that causes the problem.
