    My MacBook Pro constantly attempts to connect to my Mac Pro. I can not find an application responsible and as far as I can tell, I have no references to the mac pro. I last connected to the tower to pull over some data. I disconnected and shut down my mac pro before leaving town.

    The Message:
    "There was a problem connecting to the server "Mac Pro".

    Any ideas on how I can resolve this?

    Open System Preferences->Users & Groups, "Logon Options" (bottom of the left hand pane) and make sure it is not set to join a Domain. Plus in the same Users & Groups pane click on "Login items" mini-tab and make sure the drive is not in your startup items.

    Checked, not seeing any of those settings active. The issue seemed to have stopped for now.

    So that damn message is back. Seems to start if my MBP is sleep for a while. I had the MBP sleep since Friday, and the messages appeared as soon as I logged in. All the same apps are open.. so I don't see a pattern with this at all.
