  • Caffeine doesn't stop sleep mode when the lid is closed (except for running in clamshell mode with an external monitor). Just leave the lid open :-) If you must run with the lid closed, there are a ...
  • I use it on my XM-1, which is the camera I take for a walk when I want something really light. I wouldn't use it on my X-Pro1; if I'm taking that it's primes or the 55-200 - actually usually a bag ...
  • No, it's your problem of expression. Why do I need to do that? I've quoted Cisco documentation that makes clear the application has has access to the filesystem and communicates with server-side ...
  • That's a remarkably aggressive comment. Still, here you go: From http://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/products/collateral/security/anyconnect-secure-mobility-client/at_a_glance_c45-578609.pdf "The ...
  • But wait! Back in the film days, there were 6¾" × 4¾" and 7" × 5" formats. Why not build cameras with sensors that size? That would be awesome! Imagine the Gigapixels! Of course, size, weight, and ...
  • I'm particular about who has what access to my computers, so my answer is yes, you should be concerned. If you set up a Windows VM and only install you employer's software (VPN, RD) in that VM, ...
  • That's not what the information linked by Lew says, nor do I believe that a server-side process can scan my Mac without being granted permissions, just because I install some random VPN software.
  • There's a thread here which might interest you. It also links to this WD document .
  • Oh, I understand how that would work. You let them install a piece of software on your machine with appropriate permissions to poke around everywhere. I was presuming a remote capability. I would ...
  • I have, lots, and suspect you have misunderstood how it works, because... Leaving RAM unused would be inefficient. OS X manages memory to make best use of all of it. At this moment I have Safari ...
  • If that's the case, then I would use Parallels (well, VMWare in my case, but same sort of thing), and have all the work software (VPN + remote desktop) installed under it. That way, your office IT ...
  • Yes, but there they control the entire desktop build, so they can set it to whatever they want. I still don't see it working like that if you connect a VPN from your Mac. No company I have ever ...
  • How is that going to work? Their 'system' is going to check around your Mac? Have you actually tried it, because I doubt they have that capability. Do they provide a VPN and remote desktop for ...
  • I wasn't suggesting it was a load issue. The system will wait for the disk to spin up. I was thinking of reasons why it might be accessed.
  • Have you excluded your external drives from Time Machine backups (assuming you use it)? If they are spinning up, you are using/accessing them in some way. You can prevent the disks spinning  down ...
  • Then I suspect you haven't installed them :-)
  • It's /Library/ColorSync, not ~/Library/ColorSync
  • That's the hardware side of the story. You're still limited to importing into Photos, aren't you? Unless you jailbreak the iPad. To the OP: you do mean backup, don't you? I wouldn't want to reuse ...
  • Zipdevil apparently packages adware in the download, but it's not a virus. You should remember in future not to trust the person who recommended it to you. Googling "zipdevil malware" would ...
  • Welcome to Mac Talk! Somewhere in the depths of this thread , you will find all the ways to stop Photos from auto-opening when you attach your camera. Even if it does, you don't have to let it ...
