High Sierra

  1. Finally updated my mini-mac to High Sierra yesterday, seems faster, even windows 8.1 with parallels is pretty zippy....
  3. About the only thing I've noticed with High Sierra that seems odd is when forcing the screen to turn off, the smooth fade to black stops at 50% before continuing to 0%. Before, it was a smooth fade-out. I'm talking about moving the mouse to a hot corner (lower right for me) to put the screen to Sleep.
  4. I had an issue with Time Machine. Though it was still in the exclude list my Windows VM started getting backed up constantly after High Sierra. I ended up shutting down Time Machine and reformatting my external disk. Works just fine now. Irritating couple of days.
  5. Haven't ran Time Machine yet, probably tonight...
  6. I have an issue with the latest iTunes, iOS 11, and High Sierra where my iPhone does not synch or back up if I plug it into my iMac when the systems asleep. Oh, the disks spin up when I plug in my iPhone, but the next morning I'll see that the Synch/Backup never started. Since it's cold out, I went ahead and placed my iMac in the "Avoid Sleep" mode so the screen turns off, but High Sierra is still active. A little extra waste heat in the bedroom is welcome...
