    Next step is to create a new user, restart, and then login with that user. This will tell us if it?s a user or system issue. If the former getting rid of a PLIST file might due it. If the latter then DLing and installing the 10.6.7 Combo update directly from Apple?s site might fix it.

    It works now. I had already restarted the machine to see if is was stuck in some kind of suspend or pre-sleep mode but no change there. Just a minute ago I put the lid down to see if the Apple logo was lit. When I put it back up my Macbook's screen went a scary shade of white and then both displays blacked out only to come back fine five seconds later. Strange.

    What does OS X 10.6.7 have to do with Safari? If Safari's going to be updated, they'll release a Safari update.

    You're not quite getting behind what's really happening with Safari that makes it a RAM hog, and while I think your subsequent insults were completely childish and uncalled-for, the words of this sentence, out of context, are correct.



    Safari SHOULD be giving unused RAM back to the system, but it isn't. Doesn't really have much to do with having a cache or it clearing itself, but the point's about the same.

    Slightly off topic but, I've never understood what the advantage of using the Combo updater is as opposed to the specific updater in software update.



    Anyone care to explain ?



    Thanks in advance.

    Yes I will what it does it ensures that all parts of the update will be installed not just the parts that are perceived as "extra and changed" what this means is that its almost like a fresh install it completely over write all files so you have a nice default update ... what this also means is if there was any left over corrupted files or any part of the OS that may have been previously installed that may be out of whack it gets replaced too so you know nothing has been left out

    hi,

    in addition to what nuvolino said if you have a few macs to update e.g a MacPro, Macbook Pro, iMac, Mini Mac and a Macbook Air or a few different generations of the same type of mac then you only need to download one update (the Combo) and it does the job for all of them.

    He also sent me a PM telling to F off. I thought about reporting it, but it?s pointless. I?d rather him not create a fresh alias.

    The only anti-virus you need to protect your Mac is education and common sense.

    And to let you get some proper information about the different malware types:
    Anyway, there has NOT been ONE virus for Mac OS X in public circulation in the last decade, and as of now, there is still none.

    Good luck.

    It's like the reason you don't get hit with lightning - because I pray for you. No, really, what in the world are you even talking about? (And no, I don't pray for anyone, so apparently you aren't being hit with lightning because Steve hasn't willed it on you...)



    Can you name a Mac (OS X) virus that has been out there? One that has been stopped with an Apple update? I get some conceptual hacks from some security conferences, but nothing in the wild yet after what, 9 years? It's not impossible that one will one day appear, but you know the whole "Macs don't get viruses" thing?



    There is a reason Mac folks are happy not to be on PCs. Or Android phones. (OK, a whole bunch of reasons, but now I digress...)

    This thread is comical. I'm going to ratchet it up a notch: mrstep I completely agree with your post... Except, I'm happy on my Android phone. Just thought I'd throw one more wrench in this thread.



    Updating ...

    10.6.7 brings no TRIM support to my 11" MacBook Air

    Anybody seen anything?



    I have a mid-2009 MBP with Apple 256GB SSD. I can confirm (after a 10.6.7 combo-update) that SSD Trim is NOT enabled. I opened a support case with Apple Care (210949103) with a callback scheduled tomorrow afternoon.



    I'm unhappy that Apple gave a custom Snow Leopard build with SSD Trim support to new MBPs while penalizing those of us who adopted early (I paid $3854 in June 2009) and have never had the benefit of that feature.
