Does InsomniaX work with macOS Mojave? — May 29, 2019

Does InsomniaX work with macOS Mojave?

When transferring large files, there are times when I want to close the lid on my MacBook Pro laptop. It’s running on Mac OSX Mojave 10.14.5 and after several minutes of research, there’s not a built-in function to disable laptop sleep. Apple may have very good reasons for that.

But there are times when we can manage the risk of a closed lid with a running laptop.

Here’s the solution. Install and run the free utility InsomniaX- Keep your Mac awake the easy way. I downloaded it from download.cnet.com/InsomniaX/3000-2094_4-97713.html – but, it’s an older piece of software that was last updated 3 years ago, i.e. 2016.

However, there are 2 caveats:

Installing InsomniaX On OSX 10.12 and afterward

It seems that on systems with gatekeeper active, the kext module is not correctly loaded, if when the option Disable Lid Sleep is pressed the icon doesn’t change you are most likely affected. In that case use the following workaround [ed.note: Spotlight > Terminal]:

  1. Disable Gatekeeper: sudo spctl --master-disable
  2. Launch InsomniaX and enable the option disable lid sleep, fill out the administration password prompt if needed
  3. Rejoice, InsomniaX should be working and the kext should now be trusted by the system
  4. Re-Enable Gatekeeper:
  • Either use: sudo spctl --master-enable
  • Or change the selector in Preferences->Security & Privacy->Generic back to AppStore & Signed Apps (Or even the more strict AppStore Only)

Thank You Andrew James

Thank you Andrew James for creating this very awesome utility!

How to Print from Windows 10 to Airport Extreme USB Printer — May 10, 2019

How to Print from Windows 10 to Airport Extreme USB Printer

Looking for a way to print wirelessly over wifi from a Windows 10 laptop to an Airport Extreme (version 7.7.8) base station with a USB printer connected. The printer is a Canon MX330 series.

I’m able to print from other Mac’s using the wifi network, including an iMac 27″, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro. Haven’t yet figured out how to print from the Windows 10 laptop.

Here’s what answers I’ve found thru web searches and will update this blog post with what works and what doesn’t, after I try them:

Airport Extreme Printing via Windows 8.1 and Windows RT

has detailed instructions [this one uses adding a printer onto a TCP/IP Port]

Windows 10 connecting to apple airport printer

says Apple changed the port they use from 9100 to 9101 [essentially, in Windows, add printer, use port number 9101] and the thread also refers to this 2013 video, Windows Printing For Apple AirPort Extreme without Bonjour Wireless wifi. (and in the video's comment thread, people have said it worked with Windows 8, 10, 7..)

To be continued…

Stay tuned and I’ll update this blog post after I test these solutions and see if any of them work, or if I have to do something different..

saving knowledge at open.djchuang.com — January 12, 2019

saving knowledge at open.djchuang.com

What I like to do is share freely for the good of humanity. There are plenty of people that want to make money from the things they do for other people. Make no mistake, I need to make money to pay the bills, too. I am not financially independent. But, in my free time, I like to be generous in sharing information and resources. That’s why I do what I do at open.djchuang.com – which is powered by the New Google Sites.

Not salvation in the Christian sense

Not to be confused here, I am not using religious jargon and terminology when using words like saving or knowledge, or good, or evil. In a certain context and in a certain book, those may have specific particular meaning. On this blog post and in that website, it’s mostly just the generic meaning of those plain English words.
