Pray - believe it or not... it worked for me when I got down on my knees and prayed. Hope this helps also from Fixya By  horthette Rank: Master Rating: 74%, 10 votes Apple is advising all owners of MacBooks or MacBook Pros bought after February 2006 to download a software update that will help fix some battery issues. The update, available through Software Update in the Apple menu or here on Apple's site, was released to correct some battery performance problems, such as shorter than usual battery life or problems charging the battery, according to a Web page on the support section of Apple's site. But if that fix doesn't work, notebook users should contact Apple to have their battery replaced if they notice the following symptoms, cut and pasted from Apple's support document: * Battery is not recognized causing an "X" to appear in the battery icon in the Finder menu bar. * Battery will not charge when computer is plugged into AC power. * Battery exhibits low charge capacity/runtime when using a fully charged battery with a battery cycle count (as shown in System Profiler) of less than 300. * Battery pack is visibly deformed. Apple says these problems aren't safety issues, just performance-related, a relief for those who remember the massive battery recall of last summer. Apple had to recall 1.8 million batteries manufactured by Sony as part of a larger recall that affected just about everyone in the PC industry.

This is a very broad question so I'll cover as many answers as I can think of: 1) Force quit frozen applications (Apple-Option + Escape) 2) Force shut down (hold power button for 5 seconds until it turns off) 3) Force restart (Apple-Option + Power Button)

I want to install iBooks on my nuvision tablet

Most paid for books from the iBooksstore have DRM and can only be read using the iBooks app. Android is not possible for them. The same goes for any books in the interactive .ibooks format, even without DRM.
Books in the epub format without DRM (usually free books) can be read on any device with the appropriate ereader software.

Find books down loaded

Hello there,

If you have downloaded it from iTunes, you should be able to locate it in iBooks.

To open iBooks simply enter "iBooks" in the launchpad search bar. You now should log in with your app id which you used to download the book from iTunes.

If you downloaded the Book from another web page then you should be able to locate it in your Downloads folder.

To locate the folder just open finder and find "Downloads" in the left column.

Hope this is useful.

How do I use this for buying e-books?

Purchasing ebooks through the iBooks Store is very similar to buying any other media via Apple's iTunes Store. One key difference, though, is how you access the store. Rather than through iTunes or a dedicated app like the iTunes Store app on the iPad and iPhone, in this case, you access it through the iBooks app.
In the top left corner of the iBooks app is a button that reads "Store". To access the iBooks Store and begin shopping for iPhone- and iPad-compatible ebooks, tap that button.

Once you enter the iBooks Store, the browsing and searching experience is very similar to using the iTunes Store. In this case, you can search for the author or title you want in the top-right corner search box.
To browse books, either tap the icons on the main page of the store or tap the "Categories" menu item in the top left corner. This drops down a menu with all of the iBooks store's categories in it. Tap the category you're looking for to see books in that genre.

In the iBooks Store, when you tap a book title to get more details (synopsis, reviews, etc.) a window pops up and the background grays out a bit.
In this window, you can download a free sample of the book to your iBooks library by tapping the "Get Sample" button. This is the equivalent of iTunes' 30-second song preview, which helps you get a sense of whether you want to purchase the book.
When you decide to purchase a book, tap the price on the left side of the screen next to the book cover. The button will turn green and read "Buy Book". Tap it again to buy the book.
To close the pop-up window and not buy the book, simply tap anywhere outside the window.

You buy at the iBooks Store using the same iTunes account and password as you do at the iTunes Store or App Store. When buying a book, you'll be prompted to enter your password to pay for the ebook before it will begin downloading.

Once you've entered your iTunes account password, the eBook will download to your iPad. How long this takes will depend on the book (its length, how many images it has, etc.).
When the book is done downloading, it will appear as a title on the bookshelves in the iBooks app. Tap it to begin reading.

How do you download books on an apple ipad

An Internet connection is required. On iOS devices such as the iPad, the iBooks App includes the iBooks Store. Tap the iBooks icon and your bookshelf appears. In the upper corner, tap the Store button and the bookshelf flips around to reveal the iBooks Store. From the iBooks Store, you can browse books by title, author, or genre. You can also view featured books as well as books available on the New York Times bestseller lists (United States only). Tap on a book to see more details and download a free sample. When you buy a book, it will automatically appear on your iBooks bookshelf.

How do I get my iBooks back on my iPod (3rd generation 32GB,OS4.2.1)? Bought books from iBook Store. Had to Restore my iPod during upgrade to latest OS. Can see my books in iTunes library but can't get...

Make sure that you have have ticked the box in iTunes that allows books to sync once you have plugged the iPod in.

If that fails, you can also download the books again from the iBooks store. Simply open iBooks, go to the store, and go to Purchases. From there you can choose any books you have previously bought and re-download them with no charge.
