I'm on an iMac. Some login passwords have disappeared in Safari. Not in keychain.

Also, my iMac seems to jump to login too often since updating. It goes to log in when it goes to sleep on regular schedule. I'm not finding any place in settings to turn that off.

And, my keyboard & mouse periodically stop working correctly. I thought that was due to Word issues on the Mac, but now I'm not sure. Sometimes I can't select anything, sometimes select just isn't accurate.

Thoughts?

Hi. You can set that up on Pref Pane (Settings) -> Security and privacy -> General tab -> Ask password [after X time] when the mac goes to sleep. If you don't want the mac to ask you for the login password each time your mac goes to sleep, you just uncheck that box.

As for the keyboard and mouse, you can always delete them from the bluetooth settings pane, and them after a reboot, try to re-pair them with your mac.

Good Luck, Sierra was a great operating system.

Thanks for your response! I posted in the 10.12 thread by mistake. o_O I actually meant 10.13.
However, the "Ask password" box in preferences is unchecked.
I am wondering if it's a CrashPlan conflict!

I've got serious problem with latest security update on my 13' MacBook Pro Retina (Early 2015). After update my Mac heats up and throttle as hell. I reinstalled Mac OS Sierra from scratch, changed thermal paste on CPU twice, nothing helped. I can have ~80 celsius on my CPU, when I'm only browsing the net on Safari. It's hard to use any powerful applications, because it can heat up to even ~100 celsius and above. Please help, what can I do? Did anyone had the same problem? Thank you in advance


P.S. I can't upgrade my OS to newest version due to my health problems. So I have to stay with Mac OS Sierra.

Can you clone your hard drive to an external USB drive and boot from it?
Do you have a Time Machine back up prior to that security update which causes problems?
I would try everything until I find the problem.
It is always a safe policy to make from time to time a bootable clone of your hard drive in an external USB drive, especially before installing any update.
External USB drives are not expensive if it is a magnetic, non SSD drive.
