    I'm very happy for you. Sometimes it's important to remember what it was like before you knew everything.

    I see that as part of the problem. Why should you have to do research to understand what's going on?

    Here's what Apple says about the specs on my 2017 iMac:

    I just worked this one up myself. I have an alias to it in my .bashrc file:

    alias zop='/usr/bin/top -ocpu -F -s 2 -n30'

    Thanks for that.

    The machine in question will mainly be used to play low-res YouTube and other videos on a old 1080p monitor. I think the cheap Amazon cable I ordered will do the trick. If not...

    I have the same machine but with an Apple SSD and have never seen that sort of performance degradation. It would be nice if you would show us a screenshot of Activity Monitor sorted by CPU, or run...

    It's all a little bit confusing. When you look at the tech specs for that MBA the only port (aside from USB) mentioned is:

    • Thunderbolt 2 port (up to 20 Gbps)

    But then when it talks about...

    I guess we've never owned a machine with PowerChime which is why I don't know anything about it.

    The subject machine is a 2009 MBA with a MagSafe power connector. I don't think it has PowerChime:...

    Although the MBA is connected to power all the time I have it set to restart shortly after midnight every day. It chimes on restart. I agree that the respawn shouldn’t have made it MBA unresponsive....

    No, she doesn't. On the other hand, my iPad, which connects to her AirPods, has many: GoPro, dashboard camera, several BlueTooth speakers, my AirPods,etc.

    So, probably not that.

    Anyway, she's...

    Troubleshooting [rant]

    It seems like I'm spending more time than ever troubleshooting stuff. Part of that is because I have more stuff, but I also think that stuff doesn't "just work" the way it's supposed to.

    What worked was turning the feature off, force rebooting the device and turning it on again.
