I very much like TotalSpaces and now the new TotalSpaces2. But there was a problem with the original TotalSpaces that I had hoped would go away but didn’t with TotalSpaces2: sometimes my Mac does not wake from sleep when TotalSpaces2 is running – I have to do a hard shutdown (pressing the power button for 5 seconds).
Attempting to wake in this circumstance has no effect. The Mac does not wake. Period. ⌘^␛ does not bring up the Force Quit task manager. The screen is black. It seems that the time during which the Mac must be sleeping has to be at least 8 hours before the machine freezes; I can sleep the Mac and wake it up after an hour or two with no problems.
@stephen, I read the thread on TS2 freezing (“Spaces frozen on Mavericks”) but this is apparently not the same issue. I’ve ‘recreated’ this problem on:
- a late 2009 MacPro running Mountain Lion and TotalSpaces (original),
- a brand new 2013 iMac running Mavericks and TotalSpaces2.
By ‘recreated’ I mean that I do the following:
- leave TS2 running and let the Mac sleep for a lengthy period of time and experience the freeze,
- then I quite TS2 for a week or more and let the Mac sleep for a lengthy period of time and the Mac does not freeze.
I’m going to run TS2 this week and see if I can get the iMac to freeze. Then I’ll go again a week without TS2.
@stephen, can you suggest what I should look for if when this iMac freezes again and I attempt to SSH in? What Unix command output would be helpful to you? ‘top’? What else?
