    I'll take your thoughts in the same order:

    1. The USB itself may be fine, but something in your system is not the same as those other machines and is causing the installation to fail. Until/unless...
  2. I still don't think the SSD you have has failed....

    I still don't think the SSD you have has failed. SSDs don't work sometimes and then not sometimes. It works or doesn't. In your case, it works. The installer fails. That's most likely a problem with...

    Well, Keith, technically you DID partition the drive, just that the partition is ONE partition and in that partition you installed the operating system. You may not have known you did that, as the...

    Well done, Keith. I wouldn't bother partitioning the SSD, no need to do that.

    Just thought I would report back. iMazing didn't have an easy way to get a count, so I downloaded ALL of the images from iCloud as a backup (took 9 downloads because you are only allowed 1000 images...

    That is "dangerous" to do. A lot of those games put things on your system through that Facebook interface that could be malicious. Not fatal, but just nasty. And most of those nasties would affect...

    Well, I am running out of ideas. Nothing should trigger Safari to start except having it in the boot sequence. One last thing to check might be to start a shutdown with the  icon upper left, then...

    Just to be sure, how did you shut down Safari? And is it possible that her machine is rebooting? And if rebooting is a possibility, does she have Safari set to launch on boot?

    Technically, if you...

    Well, I notice mine wakes up to receive emails and notifications, probably because I leave Mail running when it rests and I have "Wake on network access" ticked, so any email will wake it up...

    Sue, I just tried turning Photostream off and on on all devices and nothing changed. Also did a full backup of the iPhone using iTunes and no change. What is curious is that the storage bar on the...

    Nope, read post #11 through 14. Turns out they are all websites opening in Safari.

    Let's say you visit a site that has a self-starting video (lots of them have that these days). Abcnews.go.com is an example. As soon as you open the page video starts running. (You can see which...

    I would say a good many Mac users would disagree with Patrick, too. I don't use any third party fan controls, never have on a Mac and none of them has overheated or failed due to heat-related issues....
  14. Photos sync--can I merge what is on iPhone/iPad with what is on MBP?

    Setup: Mid-2015 MBPr, Mojave 10.14.5 with Photos 4.0, iPhone and iPad with iOS 12.3.1. On the iPhone and iPad I have set up iCloud for Photos with iCloud Photos ON, Download and Keep Originals,...

    The yellow "-" minimizes the page to the Dock, the red X pushes the application off the desktop completely, but leaves it running. A sleeping Mac, when wakened, tries to restore the "state" of the...

    The red X does not close. It minimizes. So Safari is still running, and still tracking those minimized websites. And if any event occurs to wake up the Mac when the lid is closed (arriving email,...

    So one quick suggestion is to close Safari completely before closing the lid. By that, I mean to click on the "Safari" on the top bar, then "Quit Safari" to shut it down. Or you can use CMD-Q to...

    OK, so Facebook, TWC, News, etc, are websites, not applications. Just to be clear, then, applications are not starting up, but websites are opened in Safari? Or whatever is the browser of choice? It...

    Can we revisit this comment? What do you mean, exactly, by "icons for on her desktop?" Do you mean on the Dock across the bottom or side, or actually on the Desktop? Apps should NOT have icons on the...

    He did say the SSD was 250 GB (Post #5). 50GB may be sufficient, unless the videos are large, in which case the combination of source, scratch and output temporary files could well be eating that up...

    This is a long shot, but you might check System Preferences/Accessability and see if under the "Interaction" area the "Dictation" is set up. The computer might be reacting to sounds it interprets as...

    They should test it for you. If they think you damaged it, the penalty is in the repair costs. But they should still test it.
