OS X :: MacBook Pro Takes Time To Show Up In Network

Jan 2, 2011

I have an i7 MBP with the latest updates for Leopard with VMWare and Windows 7 Home. When the MBP is started on the LAN by WiFi it is able to connect to the Internet immediately. However, when I try to connect or see the MBP from another Windows 7 Home computer on the same LAN, it takes approximately 6 to 7 minutes before it shows up in "Network" on the other computer. No "Refresh" will locate it before the time. When I start VMWare and Windows 7 loads, it shows up immediately in "Network".

MacBook Air :: Thumb Drive Takes Long Time To Show Up On Desktop?

May 30, 2012

I have a thumb drive that if i plug it into my MacBook Air in the left usb port, it takes at least 3 minutes before it shows up on my desktop, sometimes MUCH longer.  If i plug it into the right USB port, it shows up after a minute.  If I plug this same thumb drive into a PC, it shows up within seconds.  If i plug a different thumb drive into either USB port on the Air, it shows up within seconds. 

It's a FAT32 thumb drive, and i've already tried reformatting it and the same stuff happens.  I've even had disk utility check it out and nothing's wrong.  I'd guess the thumb drive is bad but it works instantly if i plug it into a PC, so guessing that's not it. It's a 10.6 MacBook Air.

MacBook :: Takes A Long Time To Find Network?

Jan 28, 2009

I recently had to have my Macbook Unibody screen replaced. After they replaced the screen, they forgot to install the airport card. They had to take the computer back and replace the airport card. Now every time I turn on the airport card it literally takes like a minute to find any networks. That doesn't seem like a long time but next time you open your macbook see how long it takes to find networks. What should I do? Also when ever I click on the airport logo it says it is constantly scanning. Even when i am connected to a network.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: My MBP Takes A Long Time To Find Network Printer

May 9, 2012

I am new to Macs. I recently setup a router (D-Link 655) and attached my Lexmark E260dn printer to it using a static IP address 192.168.0.100. I added a printer to my MBP but when I print something it seems to take an unusually long time to find the printer. The printer dialog says "looking for printer" until it actually starts to print. I added the same printere to my aging Windows XP system using the install CD and it works as you would expect. Files begin printing immediately. What might I be doing wrong from the MBP?

MacBook :: Apple Logo Takes A While To Show Up During Boot Up

Dec 12, 2010

I noticed that when I restarted my MacBook today, the Apple logo takes a while (20-30 seconds) to just show up before the spinning gear shows up.

Things I've tried

1. Repair disk permissions

2. Verify disk

3. Reset PRAM

4. Boot into Safe Mode

5. Make sure Mac OS X 10.6.5 is the startup disk

Mac Pro :: Startup Manager Takes 2-3 Minutes To Show Up

Sep 3, 2014

If I let the system boot normally, it boots as fast as usual. And no problems during work, either. But if I boot holding the "Option" key pressed, the startup manager screen takes about 3 minutes to show up. When it does show up, however, it works as expected. This happens even if I have no external devices connected at all.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: When Opening A Folder, It Takes Ages To Show The Files

Feb 27, 2012

I have a 2012 Macbook Pro running Lion (as you can probably guess!), with a 512Gb SSD and 8Gb Ram. Its a pretty fast machine and i'm really happy with the way it runs, however when I open a folder to view files, it opens and shows a blank folder and then I get the black pinwheel in the bottom left/right hand side and I have to wait for sometimes over 30 seconds before the files in that folder are shown!? 

One thing to point out is that it doesn't always happen and its not restricted to particular folders. I can open a folder and it will show the files straight away, however I can re-open that folder and it will take up to 30 seconds to show the files... 

I've tried rebooting and running nothing, but it still happens. And I have also tried the normal disk utilities to check permissions, etc and I think these are fine too..

MacBook Pro :: Optical Drive Noise - Takes Time To Quite Down

Jul 31, 2009

When I go to 'About this mac' > 'more info' and click on the SATA option, the optical drive makes a lot of noise (seemingly checking it's there every time). I also use an iMac at work and this doesn't happen - is it normal for the MBP to do this every time? It also does it at startup, plus takes 2 minutes minimum to quieten down after inserting a disc or asking the disc to do anything.

MacBook :: Pasting Into Textedit Takes A Very Long Time?

Jun 23, 2012

I'm not sure when it started, though it was definitely after I updated to Lion, pasting into Textedit started taking longer and longer!

It doesn't seem to matter how much I'm pasting; I tested it by pasting one word, and pasting a paragraph, and they both took long enough that the spinning wheel came up for several seconds.

MacBook Air :: WiFi Takes Long Time To Connect

Jul 1, 2014

My MacBook Air (13-inch, mid-2013) takes a long time to connect to any wi-fi network (~ 30 seconds), including known/previously connected ones. Upon wake from sleep, the network will have disconnected and will have to reconnect, again taking about 30 seconds. Also, I notice that even when the display turns off briefly, the network will still disconnect. It does not matter which network it is. However, Power Nap notifications will still show up and be up to date upon wake, suggesting that the disconnection is happening only when I wake the computer. 

Things I have tried:

- removing all networks

- toggling wake for wi-fi network access and put hard disks to sleep when possible

- setting Location

- deleting all network system preference files and restarting

- resetting SMC

- restoring OS X Mavericks (10.9.3, clean install) with no recovery of network settings

MacBook Pro :: Takes Really Long Time To Restart After Battery Drain

May 13, 2012

Last night I had a weird experience with my mid-2011 MacBook Pro; I went out to dinner and came back to find the cat had kicked the power cord out, draining the battery. I've had this happen before and wasn't too worried; it's always just restarted after I plugged it back in. This time, however, I plugged it in (getting, perplexingly, a green light on the cord) and nothing happened except for the sleep light slowly flashing; it didn't respond to any pressing on the power button, and the sleep light disappeared if I unplugged the cord. The battery test button on the side got one flashing light (meaning, I believe, a dead battery), which also didn't work if the computer was unplugged.

I left it plugged in while I hunted for info on the problem and about an hour later had just decided that I was going to have to take it in to the Genius Bar when it suddenly booted up. The cord light turned orange and it proceeded to fully recharge over the next two hours.Is this normal behavior after a battery drain? Should I be concerned? Is it worth taking the computer in to get the battery checked, or some other element of the comp? (some of the things I looked at were talking about the logic board, which is not a happy thought)iStat Pro claims the battery is at 41% health, 111 cycles, which I would think would mean it has some life in it yet.

OS X :: Resizing Windows In OS X Takes Time?

Sep 7, 2008

IMNSHO resizing windows only from the bottom right corner sucks big time. I'd like to be able to resize windows from any corner or side.

I'm wondering if there is a 3rd party solution to resizing windows in OS X? Any software that can do this?

I know this has been discussed many times here, but I couldn't find any solution. Let's not argue this time, if this is really needed. This is just something that I want. I'd be happy to pay few $, if that's the only way to get it, but free/open solutions are what I'd prefer.

OS X :: Mac Takes A Long Time Logging In

Aug 6, 2010

Basically I have a MacBook Pro which logs in fine when I'm at work but when I'm on my home network it takes like 5 minutes to authenticate. All appearances are that it's trying to reach my work network to authenticate. Short of disabling wireless or having it prompt for my home network password before joining wireless, is there any way that I can either shorten the timeout or have it bypass network authentication when I'm at home?

Mac Pro :: It Takes Long Time To Start Up

Mar 30, 2012

My Mac Pro takes two minutes to start up.  It is also sluggish during normal operation.  I have Parallels and a external hard drive installed. Do either of these contribute to this problem? Or is there a program that can be used to defrag the hard drive. (I recall having similar problems with my IBM computer.  When it was defragged the performance of the unit improved).

OS X :: Since 10.6.3, Ssh W/x11 Forwarding Takes A Long Time To Connect?

Apr 12, 2010

I'm not sure if the OS upgrade to 10.6.3 is involved or not, but I've noticed that all of a sudden, ssh connections to my Linux box would take like 30 seconds before I'd get a prompt. I tried lots of different things to resolve the problem, but what finally worked was disabling "-Y", forwarding X11. Can anyone give any insight into this and help me resolve it so that I can forward X11 without the connection taking forever to establish?

OS X :: Computer Takes Long Time To Boot Up

May 3, 2010

My computer takes pretty long time to boot up and even though there is not much under /Library/StartupItems/ it still takes too much time.

mbp:~ alexus$ ls -la /Library/StartupItems/
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 6 root wheel 204 May 3 13:18 ./
drwxrwxr-t+ 70 root admin 2380 Mar 12 11:42 ../
drwxr-xr-x 8 root wheel 272 Oct 26 2009 IPSecuritasDaemon/
drwxr-xr-x 5 root wheel 170 Apr 19 12:31 VirtualBox/
drwxr-xr-x 5 root wheel 170 Sep 23 2009 tap/
drwxr-xr-x 5 root wheel 170 Sep 23 2009 tun/
mbp:~ alexus$

Where else I can look what's being executed upon boot? because under process I see BlackBerry's Daemon (I'm no longer BlackBerry user, I'm okay to leave Application, but I don't want it to boot up during startup) and I'm pretty sure there is other stuff as well.
