    Calibrating MacBook Pro Battery

    I just bought a replacement battery for the one that originally came with my MacBook Pro that I bought two years ago, since my MacBook Pro shuts down without warning way before it's supposed to (around 91% battery charge left). I heard about "calibrating" your Apple battery to keep it in good shape via this link , but I am having a little trouble understanding steps 4 and 5 of the section for MacBook Pros (middle of page). Step 4 says to "continue to keep your computer on until it goes to sleep. Save all your work and close all applications when the battery gets very low, before the computer goes to sleep," and then afterwards, in step 5, to "turn off the computer or allow it to sleep for five hours or more." My question is, if my MacBook's already asleep by step 5, how am I supposed to access the menu to turn it off? I suppose Apple is making a distinction here between 'shutting down' and 'turning off,' right? If they are, then would all I have to do to complete step 5 be to press and hold the power button on my MacBook Pro? Thanks, T
  2. Thanks Jacee, I wasn't aware of that. I have uninstalled MSN Explorer from Add/Remove Programs, Brandon, but the popup still comes up. I can't find anything about it on the web either. I have, however, in the meantime downloaded that extension you mentioned. You can never be too safe. Thanks for the help. Torrey
  3. Yes, and there is nothing related to MSN. I will get more screenshots when the thing pops up again.
  4. Hey guys and girls, I recently downloaded Firefox 3 for my Windows XP x64 Pro computer. I find that often when I am on the internet a pop-up of indeterminate origin will appear. Would any of you happen to have seen such a pop-up? I have included a screenshot here for you to look at. It would probably be helpful also to add that if I do not close out the pop-up, Firefox refuses to access any website that I wish to visit; i.e., it will forever stay at "loading _website name_," as reflected by the status bar at the bottom of the Firefox browser. Once I close it, however, the website quickly loads. Thanks! T http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c11/Torr...snconnector.jpg

    My setup

    It's pretty overwhelming. Sometimes I find myself tired from all the viewing area. haha. Do you own a similar screen?

    My setup

    I finally gave in to what had been tempting me for months, a new 23" Apple Cinema display screen! I love it. http://www.torreywang.com/pictures/mac/macanddisplay.JPG
  8. Hi guys, I have a MacBook Pro that I use for college with a lot of important content in it. Now that I'm working on a thesis, I have started to become paranoid about the possibility of having it, in addition to my other files, irrevocably lost to a sudden disk malfunction, or just disappearing inexplicably, and other such worries. I wonder if there are software out there that can create an image of my hard disk so that in the event that something like those situations happens, my laptop will easily be restored back to its original state? I have also thought about getting an external hard drive as a backup solution. Would this hard disk work with my Mac? Which method do you guys prefer? If there are software like the kind I asked about, how large would a disk image be? Would it be able to fit into a regular DVD?--I have approximately 55gbs of files in my MacBook Pro. Thanks for your suggestions, Tori

    What to use to clean MacBook Pro screen?

    Thanks Intra. Do you have a product in mind?
  10. I used Nice'N Clean Anti-Static cleaning wipes that I got from Wal-Mart; it is basically lint-free cloth mixed with a solution of isopropyl alcohol and water. Anyway, those wipes left streaks on my screen, which aren't visible when it is on, but noticeable when the laptop and screen are turned off. I guess it is adviseable not to use that product again, but what do you guys use to clean your screen?

    About your Mac

    I just bought a MacBook Pro (2.16GHz, 120GB option) with my education discount, and I can't believe how long I've missed out on Macs! It is so cool, haha.

    I hear the 3800 AM2s and 939s are supposedly being given a huge pricecut in the next week or two, with prices being somewhere in the $100-$130 range after discount.
