Can\’t Empty Trash With Large Number of…: Apple Support Communities. Thanks ibcoleman. I haven’t had this happen, but I do know friends who have large numbers of files. Good to know.
Calendar crashes on open: Apple Support Communities. Linc Davis has multipel fixes for a calendar that crashes when you open or start it. Excellent step by step.
Here “*” stands for a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes. Test again. If the application now works, you may be able to put back some of the files you moved in this step, relaunching and testing after each one. Eventually you may find the file that caused the problem; delete it. Recreate your settings if necessary. Close the Library folder.
It used to be that Apple just had it automatically pop up or appear on the desktop. However due to security reasons probably, this is no longer the case. Mende1 has the solution below.
Superdrive inoperative after Mountain…: Apple Support Communities. This seems to happen to many Apple owners who upgrade to ML. I would do the fix suggested below by Chris but also visit the genius bar and share this thread. Perhaps there is a silent recall that you might qualify for.
Linc has the solution below. Deleting the Spotlight index seems to fix many issues with 10.8.
Enter “cd ” (without the quotes, but with the trailing space) in the Terminal window. Now switch to the Finder and drag the icon of the drive into the Terminal window. More text will be added to what you entered.
Click in the Terminal window to activate it, then press return.
Next, enter this command:
sudo rm -r .Spotlight-V100
You’ll be prompted for your login password, which won’t be displayed when you type it. You may get a one-time warning not to screw up. You don’t need to post the warning. If you don’t have a login password, you’ll need to set one before you can run the command.
Unmount and remount the drive. Any change?
Problem with waking from sleep with…: Apple Support Communities. So in the past normally this means a problem with the SMC. Interesting that this worked for CalChloe. Thanks for sharing.
I have a MBP 17″ late 2011. I just did upgrade from Lion to Mountain Lion 10.8.2. Immediately after the upgrade I was experiencing the exact same problem as the OP – it would take anywhere from 1.5 to 2 minutes to wake up.
I finally called Apple. They told me to:
1. Boot up holding down the CMD and R keys to get to Disk Utilities.
2. Run Repair Permissions.
3. Run Repair Disk.
4. Close out of the Disk Utilities and boot the machine.
5. Open the Finder. Hold down the Option key, choose GO from the menu and select LIBRARY.
6. From the Library drag the CACHE fold and the COOKIES folder to the trash.
7. Delete the trash.
I was sceptical but thus far it has fixed my problem.
