meeting suggestion

At the last two meetings that I attended, I overheard a lot of discussion about photography during the break. I would like to suggest that we have two meetings on that subject. One for amateurs - how to use IPhoto etc, and one geared toward advanced amateurs on how to use photoshop/Aperture etc. Is ...

problem solved

FYI Two weeks ago I asked for advice on why my IMac had trouble going into sleep mode. A week later I wrote that my keyboard was giving me problems. I did buy the Apple wireless keyboard and paired it with my IMac on Monday and then I got rid of the original USB keyboard. It has been three days now ...

Re: keyboard problem

Thank you for the suggestions. I didn't know the keys popped off so easily. I cleaned as best as I could but to no avail. The keyboard is 6 years old and came with the IMac.

trouble sleeping

I have a 6 year old IMac that is running Snow Leopard. I only shut it off when I am away for extended periods. I put it to sleep whenever I am finished checking email, etc. by going to the apple and clicking on "sleep". Within the past 4 weeks, I have been having trouble getting into sleep mode. The...

Re: Time machine and external hard drives

Thank you, I am very surprised at the quick reply, only 8 minutes. I had read something on a forum that suggested it was possible for TM to back up an external disk but I wanted to be sure. I am not interested in upgrading the internal drive, to complicated for me. My IMac is 6 years old and I would...

Time machine and external hard drives

IPhoto is taking up 139 GB of my 250 GB hard drive which is now 84% full (210 GB used) It seems to be running slow. I am planning to move IPhoto to an external hard drive (1 TB) to free up space on my IMac 10.6.5. I have just purchased a 2TB time capsule that I will use for backup. My question is: W...
