  • Problems after upgrade to Sierra.

    After the upgrade to Sierra I have questions. App & external drives are locked after the iMac is off mode 'sleep'. Unable to perform even normal shutdown. After you have reinstalled the operating system, again always get the same result. Updated from El Capitan. My iMac is a 5K, 27-inch retina, end of 2015 with hard drive internal 2 TB & Intel Core I5 3.3 GHz processor.

    I had similar problems in the opposite direction. My iMac 27-inch would freeze requiring power and on almost every day, and waking up from his sleep was problematic. Apple tips to the identification of the problem was not practical. Updated for Sierra and the process (forgot why) I've unchecked hard drive put to sleep when Possible in energy-saving and leave ticked avoid computer to sleep when the screen blanks. The combination of the hard drive part uncheck to sleep and Sierra gave me four of frost free days (my record is new so do not even celebrate) but waking up is no longer a problem. Might as well try and see how it works.

    Hello gregor gregor gregor.

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support. It's my understanding you are needing help with upgrading to Sierra, as the Mac App Store gives more the possibility to download. I want to assure you that you can upgrade and enjoy Sierra successfully.

    If you quit the Installer do not click on continue, you can open it later in your Applications, Launchpad or Spotlight folder. Looking for a file named Install macOS Sierra. During the installation, your Mac may restart several times. It performs then a few initial configuration in the background tasks. Although these tasks are ongoing activities such as the use of Spotlight or Mail may not seem as fast as they were before.

    Have an amazing day!

  • Fans of fast and slow mail after upgrade of Sierra

    So I too just upgraded to Sierra, and I have two problems.  The first I noticed almost immediately after a reboot is something is causing fans to run almost non-stop.  I looked at the level of the console and I see that several root applications use more than 100% of the time CPU.  What the hell is happening here?

    Second, Mail has now slowed down to the point that it is almost unusable.  I click on an email and it will literally be anywhere from 15 to 20 seconds for the mail to open.  Not a complex HTML with email of old thing plain video simple.  What the hell is happening here?  It's maddening.
