Cisco Switching and Apple Computers

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with running Macs' on their Cisco networking equipment. It seems to only be one generation of IMacs' that disable ports on our switches. I do realize many variables may have a role in disabling port settings but it's only a chosen few that it happens with. Not having the authority to program each port being disabled to run in full duplex mode versus default settings from manufacturing in auto-negotiate I'm at a loss. Even after explaining the solution, nothing gets done. My question is could someone post some documentation of some sort backing up my theories? Also if anyone could please include anything about proper port settings for access points on our VLANs that also become disabled at times. I do know through research done that all access points should be classified as such on the network. Am I correct in stating this also? I thank you in advance for any information or help you may provide for me and posts will be rated.

When you say 'disable our

When you say 'disable our ports' , presumably you are referring to Port Security?

If so, what reason does the switch give for them being disabled?
