[GENIUS] Disable “sleeping” MacBook when closing the lid, the startup in OS X and the small pictures on iPhone
Reliability, coupled with the simplicity, is the cornerstone that Apple founder Steve jobs laid into the Foundation of the “Apple” of the Corporation. However, whatever the technique, its operation process will inevitably arise various questions. Sometimes they are caused by malfunctioning software issues, at least — the fault of the electronics, but, fortunately, there is a category of problems that can be solved without going to repair or buy a new device. These are the questions most often asked in the comments, and in the Genius category we will try to help.
The first problem is common for notebook users, at the time, ran into it and your humble servant.
Unfortunately, an explicit option in OS X not applicable (reason later), but there is a simple trick by which you can suspend your computer from entering sleep mode when closing the lid. To do this, go to System preferences from the Apple menu in the top left corner of the screen and select “share”, where we note the item “Internet sharing”. Now closing the lid will not affect the status of the machine connected with a network adapter and an active Wi-Fi connection.
If you need more flexible configuration, you can use the solution from third-party developers. As an example, a program called InsomniaX. The product from Semaja is free and has a long established presence in the market, and download it from the official website.
Now briefly about the reasons. Many believe this limitation is artificial, but do not forget that, due to design features of the cooling system MacBook its effectiveness when the cover is closed, is substantially reduced, which can lead to overheating of the computer and subsequent to its failure. The aim of the Apple engineers in the development of this design is to provide the most comfortable laptop use on uneven surfaces, because many users work with them in “bedside” mode. The massive failure of the devices, as is known from similar cases, disappointing their owners much more serious.
The second issue relates to the OS X operating system and normal application startup.
In this case, the “hero of the occasion” turned out to be the utility from MacPaw CleanMyDrive, the task of which consists in cleaning disks from unnecessary files. Many programs of this type do not work correctly with the system, especially when moving to new OS versions can lead to unpleasant consequences. The application in question, very popular, so if you have any similar situation, it is recommended to stop its use until the issue resolves issues update. Of course, not be amiss to inform the developers using the form on the official website.
In the third case, it took the opportunity to make iPhone photos smaller, which is especially useful if you regularly upload them to the remote server in large numbers.
Of course, the App store has different offerings, but the solution to this problem for the author was the program Camera Plus Pro. This application, in addition to convenient editing functions, offers and the desired option.
As you can see, some of the problems with the technique of Apple is not difficult to decide. If you encounter any of them, feel free to ask for advice in the comments to this entry, and how to make the gadgets easier and more convenient, you can find in the publications of the author marked with [OS X] [iOS] and [Watch]. Of course, in the discussion encouraged mutual assistance and the exchange of ideas, which are then taken into account in the preparation of the editions. He may abide with you Mac!
