Mavericks: Outlook 2011 forgets passwords. | Apple Support Communities

Mavericks: Outlook 2011 forgets passwords. | Apple Support Communities. This is a great solution. Thanks Mac2G.


I found a solution that resolved Outlook from requesting you re-enter the password for the email accounts following a period when the computer is asleep.

With Outlook open, use Finder to select the Applications folder, then the MSOffice folder, then holding the Control key down select the Outlook “O” icon, and select “Get Info” from the list.

Within the Get Info screen presented, check the “Prevent Nap App” box.  Then close Finder, close Oulook and then re-open Outlook and your problem will be solved.  This action prevents the Outlook app from sleeping under Mavericks control which was designed to save power consumption, however Microsoft did not modify Outlook to conform to this feature so you must check and activate the “Prevent App Nap”.

Stories from my Past: Chocolate overload

One of my weaknesses is chocolate. One day I was tired and needed a boost so I went to a nearby store to buy a chocolate bar. The problem is that the store owner had a minimum of $5 for a debit card so I had to buy more than a single bar. I bought four of them.

I started to walk back to my desk and realized that this was too much temptation for me. So I went to a neighbor and asked if she wanted any chocolate. I explained that she would be doing me a favor. She gladly accepted. She had another coworker in her office so I offered her some as well. She accepted. Great! Now only two bars to eat.

They were delicious and improved both my mood and performance the rest of the day. Isn’t it wonderful that we live in a time and place in which so many of our needs and even desires can be simply fulfilled? So much to be grateful in life for.


Trackpad is sometimes not working on…: Apple Support Communities

Interesting that the Trackpad would stop working after an OS upgrade to do the Google updating software. I guess this goes to show that the more junk you add to your computer the more likely things will go wrong. Thanks danibjor.

I tried clearing out those 3 folders mentioned, seems to work for me.

We have those files in common, if that might help anyone else.. Suspect one of those cause the problems then.

That confirms it! The google-stuff is the one causing problems.
