On my Mac Mini connected to Time Capsule, I would often get a Server Connections Interrupted message like this.
It serves no purpose, because the connection is reestablished automatically, but the dialog doesn’t go away without a click. This is a major pain if your Mini is attached to your TV and you control it with a remote alone.
The fix took me months to find. It was in the middle of a Apple Support Forum thread and most of the people posting in it just ignored it completely!
The fix is to kill
The following steps should sort you out:
- Click on the spotlight icon (magnifying glass) in the upper right of your screen
- Type in ‘terminal’
- Click the ‘Terminal’ icon (black with white border) under applications
- Type in the following command and hit enter: ‘sudo mv /System/Library/LoginPlugins/FSDisconnect.loginPlugin /System’
- It will prompt you for your user password. Type it and hit enter again
This just moves the plugin so you can restore it again if needed.
