Avoid the spinning 'wait' cursor after location switch
Authored by: pecosbill on Dec 12, '06 01:45:37PM

1. A less geeky name for the Location with nothing active is "Off" as it will also turn off the modules in question and save some juice.

2. If the OS is looking for a configuration that won't work (don't have your location set correctly) or it's trying to remount a drive that it can't reach, the simple solution is to pull the ethernet connector or turn AirPort off in the AirPort menu. That sends a message to all apps that the network has changed and to react. You should get faster response including that dialog about the missing server.
