Leave Mac for 20 mins and spinning on start up


Recommended Posts

Hi there,


Got a bit of a weird one. Still getting the spinning balls but specifically when i leave my Mac for 20 mins for a cup of tea and when i come back and press play it goes into a spinning ball for about 30 secs .Only got one instrument loaded and one external midi instrument and a couple of audio channels. So really shouldn't be struggling with CPU.. Im also getting spinning balls and stopping mid play/track with very little stress on the CPU i.e small track count .. mmm I did think that it could have been something like 32 lives so i deleted that and also got rid of my crash plan app...


Any pointers hugely appreciated.


Thank you

crashplan... if you depend on that, you should of course keep using it.


does this happen on any project? try starting a new one as a test; same thing?


this could be a drive issue. id' first try resetting nvram, and the smc (google for your mac model). you could also run the hardware test...
