    The PowerMac 5500 couldn't handle it. I had a BUNCH on the screen, a message came up warning that stickies was low on memory. The screenshot just appeared as all white, that was strange, but it was after I closed stickies. Too bad I don't have a screenshot, if I am really bored, I will have to try that again sometime.

    Help

    Sorry I asked this question at the Mac Application Forum but nobody answer, and since this thread is about stickies...:eek: well here goes..:confused:

    Hi,

    yesterday I was trying to put in practice that lates OSX tip of the week, about translucent stickies... by pressing cmd + opt + T.

    But everytime I tried to open stickies it will start bouncing and bouncing... and then nothing and when finally the sticki appeared my whole computer got slow.. and then freeze.. until I force quited stickies...

    I have Main Menu, so I ran a Disk utility deleted .DS files, and reboot my computer... and again tried... and had the same issue with stikies...

    any hint???

    BTW I did not even tried to open more than just 1 stickie...

    So do you mean that Stickies will do this (bounce in the dock and freeze) before you do anything -- i.e. when you first start the program?

    Try to spotlight the file com.apple.Stickies.plist and move it from wherever it is to the desktop (but don't copy it -- remove it from the original location, and do it while the Stickies program is closed). Then open the Stickies program. If everything is back to normal, delete the copy of this file that's on the desktop.

    Yay, so glad that it worked. :D

    Ritalin is a stimulant medication ... if you're not ADHD, it'll make you a little jumpy. :p

    My macbook has two gigs of ram. And I did while watching T.V. so it was quite easy.

    Anyways, the program I have inbetween Word and System Prefrences, is called pearlyrics. It allows you do automatically download lyrics for any music played in iTunes. Acctually, I dont even know why that is there. The widget version is allways running, and it saves me from opening the program everytime I open iTunes.

    The main site is down, but you can still google the program.
