iTunes Keeps Starting Up By Itself!
Posted 09 June 2016 - 12:07 PM
A Google search reveals that people have been experiencing this issue off and on for years and various versions of OS X and iOS which some believe is implicated as iPhones and iPads are supposedly attempting to sync but i have sync turned off in iTunes and do not use it at all. My iPad is shut off. My iPhone is on but it is not connected to the computer. In fact, nothing is at this point aside of my Bose speakers. Ultimately, I could not find a solution on Google with multiple people seeming to have multiple setups they were thinking caused it that do not apply here and my configuration does not seem to match up with ways they say were the problem.
So, oh great ones how do I get iTunes to start behaving itself again? I have never seen it do this before.

Should iTunes rear its ugly head in this way again I will be sure to let you know. I guess from this I can at least conclude that my Apple keyboard's buttons are not the problem.
I have not heard from my neighbor who was going to let me know on Wednesday about buying the iMac but he has not even been home. I am hoping he is okay but it could be that a surgery he'd told me about happened and I was confused about when. Anyway, if for some reason he does not buy this system I am thinking with all the space I have in this large room I might get a cheapo computer desk at Walmart, put it together first try with a little luck and stick this on it as an internet appliance and steaming video screen to watch from the comfort of my bed rather than sell it. I'm sure you have noticed by now I have issues with changing my mind like the weather so we'll see about that but maybe. It is kind of an appealing idea. I've been feeling this strange sense of discomfort at the idea of not having a Mac even though I don't really need one if I get a PC, certainly not enough to justify buying any new one presently available. In any event, I did offer this to my neighbor at what I feel and he did also, is a good price for it at a grand so if he does want it, it's his and that's that. I figured I would explain why I even care what iTunes is doing on this thing at this point given what I've said elsewhere about selling this system.

Therefore, should this wind up living here longer after all I will blow away the hard drive's contents and do a fresh OS X install when the new one comes along and only restore specific user data and nothing else. Apps or whatnot I will download and install fresh for a new start which amounts to an exorcism of sorts. Maybe I'll light some candles around the thing and do it in the evening, toss in a few Gregorian chants for good measure and see how it all turns out.

That's interesting and would not have occurred to me. I do have one for the 3rd generation Apple TV in the next room sitting on the coffee table there. That always seems to work just fine but who knows I guess what the problem was now. While on the subject of those remotes, is that thing IR or Bluetooth, do you know? I thought they were all IR which this iMac does not have unlike the one before it but maybe some use Bluetooth? Now that I think of it, I cannot recall exactly what the end of the remote looks like or I'd know but the parrots are sleeping now so I don't want to disturb them over it.
