My macbook pro runs Lion, the latest version.
For some reason, apple mail program starts up, and it is a program I have never used, nor do I plan to.
I made a trip into the store and they did a quit, but of course, that doesn't solve the problem. No real
answer for why its starting, who/what starts it, and how to prevent it.
Each time its running I have to click 2-3 dialogue boxes before it will let me quit, and it prevents the machine
from going to sleep if its running and I'm not aware of it.
Apple told me they were using the mail program to synch between the iphone and the machine. Although I did
install cloud, I do not use it. My machine has so many problems, ever since I bought it, and I have had so many
trips to the apple store, without real explanations or solutions. What has happened to the great produce we
knew and loved? Complexity and the post-modern era are upon us.
I have logged 71 hours of tech support time on the iphone, so I no longer work on trying to solve that problem.
I actually work for a living and have no time for this. The sad thing is I am in a position to recommend products
for my employer and some major new budgets in the health sector. I loved my mac for years and years.. always
buying a mac, making arguments for macs when all around me had pc's, etc. Now I am starting to doubt the mac.
I hope that by participating in the mac community there will be some simple answers, and I don't have to spend HOURS
of frustration for things that should not be a problem in the first place. We bought apple one-one, but the website never
works, and although they told me to call to make the appointment, it is just the general number and there is 45 minutes
of scratchy music with someone who does not know how to make one-one appointments....
Sorry to ***** and moan here.... I'm sure I'm not the only one having these frustrations.
