Macintosh OS/no explosions


Hello Debba :

No, I did not copy my preferences, I simply trashed them and
rebooted and everything is normal !
But, the mac keeps trying to log out, so I keep the
download app running, it is called TRANSMISSION.
Apparently, it refuses to allow the OS to log out if I am
mot present to allow it.

I still have no idea why the mac wants to log out.
I am just taking a break from all this madness now. I will
return to the puzzle ina week or 2.
Thanks for running this marathon with me.
I may pester you again.

thank you !

You DO NOT get recess next week because you didn't follow directions!  That will give you time to 'think about what you have done'!  I will see if I can find anything for the log-out problem during this 'break'.  I need a rest too - but not from your issues.  Just need a rest.  See you when you 'get back'.
