I always keep my photos in external hard disk but keep the Aperture Library in the internal SSD. I set screensaver to randomly use rated pictures in the Aperture library as screen saver.

Before Mountain Lion, it runs perfect without the external hard disk connected which means it just use the previews in the Aperture Library.

However I realized that after I upgraded to Mountain Lion, the screensaver stuck on "Loading Photos..." when the master external HDD is disconnected. It seems that Mountain Lion require the master file folder have to be connected which is really annoying cause sometimes I don't want to connect the Photo HDD but I do want the screensaver to be properly displayed.


Please FIX this!

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1), Aperture 3.3.2
