Dear community!


Everytime I change my network, I get failure popups caused by missing server connection. How can I turn these messages off?

I know the reason: at work I have lots of connections to different server and of course I don't have them at home.


It's boring to click up to 10 times at these error popups to close them.

Does anybody know how I can solve this issue?


THX in advance for your help!

    Set up a separate Location for your home.  (You probably only have the default Automatic location at present). This can be done in System Preferences > Network.  Here is a KB article about network locations that may be helpful.

    Please take each of the following steps that you haven't already tried. Back up all data before making any changes.

    Step 1

    Boot in safe mode.

    Log in and see whether you still have the problem. If you don't, it's caused by one of your login items or a system modification that loads at startup or login. Ask if you need help identifying it. A common offender is "Adobe Synchronizer," which is a component of some Adobe products.

    Step 2


    Triple-click the line below to select it, then copy the text to the Clipboard (command-C):

    ~/Library/PDF Services

    In the Finder, select

    Go Go to Folder...

    from the menu bar, paste into the box that opens (command-V). You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return. A folder may open. If it does, move the contents to the Desktop, or to a new folder on the Desktop. Log out and log back in. Test. If there's no change, put the items you moved back where they were and continue.

    Step 3

    Open the folder


    as in Step 2 and move the following items in that folder to the Trash, if they exist:


    • com.apple.recentitems.plist
    • loginwindow.plist
    Log out and back in again, and test.
    Step 4
    Other possible causes are references in the iPhoto, iTunes, or iMovie library pointing to the server, and bookmarks in the Preview application.
