Notification Center has a mind of its own...

I've noticed that no matter how many times I
go to Preferences > Notifications
and drag an app to "Not in Notification Center"
it doesn't stick. They soon appear back in the
"In Notification Center" section.

And the setting in the Notification Center at
top right to "Do Not Disturb" only lasts for a day
before it turns itself back on.
Really?!!!

Is there a way to permanently set the
Notifications to not show or set
Do Not Disturb to not disturb me on my Mac?

(After posting this message, I may have found
my answer, will let you know if it's so.)

Nope, no solution.
Everything showed back up this morning.
Anyone else seeing notifications come
back on when you set them to "Not in
Notification Center", or have a solution?

I just checked, Chita, and I'm seeing the same behavior. Everything that I had turned off on the iMac is right back again. Checked my MacBook, and while most of the settings stuck, a few of the apps I turned off were back on. Only difference in the two systems is that I had the beta version on the MacBook. This is the buggiest upgrade I've seen in a long time.

Which is why I always demo/present from a "Demo" user account on my Mac. No weird popups or notifications, no funny prefs, no surprises.

Mac OS 10.10.1 out today:

In addition to improving Wi-Fi reliability, OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 is also said to improve reliability when sending Mail messages when using certain email service providers.

The OS X update is also said to improve reliability when connecting to a Microsoft Exchange server. Apple has also said the update improves reliability when connecting to remote computers using Back to My Mac.

Other fixes include:

Resolution for an issue where sharing services, Notification Center widgets and Actions may not be available
Addressed an issue that could cause Notiication Center settings to not be retained after a restart
Addressed an issue that might prevent the Mac App Store from displaying certain updates
Addressed an issue that could prevent some Mac mini computers from waking from sleep
Resolved an issue that might prevent Time Machine from displaying older backups
Addressed an issue that might prevent entering text in Japanese


Finally, for enterprise customers, OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 also:

Allows you to append search domains for partially qualified domain names when performing DNS lookups (consult the discoveryd man page for more information)
Addresses an issue where the Mac App Store might offer an update to Apple Remote Desktop when the latest version is already installed


OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 is a free download available on the Mac App Store. Apple has said it is recommended that all users update.

So, while checking on another system pref, I checked on Notifications. Updated to 10.10.1 last night, and all of the stuff I took out of there was right back where it started. Unchecked it all again, so we'll have to see what happens the next time I restart.

Same here.
Notifications still will not stick.
I went into System Prefs and set the time
for Notifications as seen in the screenshot.
But, when I reopened the Notification in
System Prefs again, it had set back to the
default of 10pm-7am.
We'll see if this works.

So far, setting "Turn on Do Not Disturb"
at: From 12:00am to 11:59pm seems to have
done the trick. (Fingers crossed)

I have not seen the Notifications pop on my
computer since I set this.

LOL
For the one minute between 11:59pm and 12:00am,
the Notifications do appear, then disappear.
Too bad there aren't fields for seconds, otherwise
I'd set it at (11:59:59).
But this does seem to work for my needs.

Still odd that when Notifications pane is reopened,
the time sets itself back to the default Do Not
Disturb timeframe, instead of keeping the new timeframe.
