MacBook Pro :: Starting Apps Takes Extremely Long Since Upgrade To Lion X

Mar 18, 2012

My MacBook Pro seems to take long to start any application, especially when it was in standby. I bought it in 2009 and wanted to use iCLoud. Therefore I bought Snow Leopard, Lion and new version of iPhoto. Is it just the consequence of the upgrades that are too heavy for the "old" processor?

Nov 10, 2009

When turning on the computer (from a completely off state) it takes very long to get all my log-in apps started. Safari pages don't just appear anymore, there is actually some loading time.... some apps just aren't as snappy....

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Restarting Computer Takes A Long Time?

Jun 23, 2012

My computer crashed last night. When I started it back up, the permissions on one of my internal drives in my Mac Pro that I store data on had changed. This caused some problems when trying to open applications with files stored on that volume (i.e. my Adobe Lightroom catalog). I fixed these issues, and then restarted my Mac. When I did, I saw this: 

I've since restarted my computer a few times, and it's doing this every time.

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?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Takes Long Time To Find Free Space After Emptying Trash?

Jul 1, 2012

After emptying the trash, I've noticed that Lion does not see the additional free space until after doing a reboot, and even after that it takes a long time for it to find all the new free space. Anybody know what's wrong with the trash system?

Intel Mac :: Time Machine Backups Taking Extremely Long Time Running Lion 10.7.4

Jul 2, 2012

I have an iMac running the latest version of Lion (10.7.4) and which I have upgraded to a one terabyte hard drive and full memory capability. I back up to a My Book 2 terabyte external hard drive using Time Machine. My iMac is often very sticky, though I've done most of the diagnostics I know of and preferences etc. are seemingly all OK and fcuk -fs gives a positive result! The Mac is often hard to wake from sleep and in particular seems to spend a lot of time backing up very-very slowly, with the result that it frustratingly seems to be backing up most of the time with the consequent effects on using other programs. Also the whole thing seems to grind to a halt after a hard days work with quite a few applications open. I'm wondering what can be causing this and what I can do to overcome this very frustrating and debilitating problem?

MacBook :: It Takes Long To Go To Sleep

May 30, 2012

My macbook used to take about 5 seconds or less to go to sleep when I would manually put it to sleep. It now takes about a minute for it to go to sleep. I read on a forum that you may have a job stuck in the printer que. This is not my problem. I've tried to start in safe mode and it's still not fixed. I've also checked the permissions and repaired those.

MacBook Pro :: Startup Takes Indefinitely Long

Mar 21, 2012

Lately I have been having troubles with my Mac Book Pro 13", updated to OS X 10.7.3.

I noticed it takes reaaaaally long to startup after updated OS to the latest version, as with the previous one it was working just fine. 

Most of the times, it crashes before being able to load all information on desktop (Note: I always quit all applications before switching it off, so it doesn't have to load any of them) 

Once it started, then it works ok, not even particularly slowly.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Apps Quit After Long Sleep?

Jun 22, 2012

Typically, a short sleep does not affect the apps I have running.  So if I step away from the machine and it goes to sleep, when I wake the machine in a half-hour or so, the various app windows are still there and I can keep working.  I use Mission Control to keep three desktops: one for Mail, one for Safari and one for general use.  When the machine goes to sleep at night, Time Machine and Carbon Copy Cloner do their backups (around 3:00 am).  Then when I wake the machine in the morning, there are no running apps.  Mail and Safari seem to have quit and those Mission Control desktops are empty. how I can keep those apps running?

MacBook Pro :: 13" Occasionally Takes Too Long To Shutdown

Sep 17, 2010

I was a Windows user up until a few months ago so this isn't that big a deal, but lately, my MBP takes longer than usual to shut down. Usually, it's no more than 2-3 seconds. Now, most of the time it's normal, but sometimes it takes like 20-30 seconds and there is a spiraling icon (hard to describe, think of something refreshing or loading) on the blue screen. I know it's not a big deal, but I'd like some kind of explanation as to why my MBP is doing this and if it's a sign of worse things to come.

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.

Many times my computer takes too long to connect to new website. I have wireless internet (time capsule) and I am running a pretty powerful real time financial work program at same time, what is the best solution? Upgrading speed from cable network? is it a hard drive issue? do I only need to "clean out" the computer? Or all of the above...not to computer saavy.  It is a Macbook Pro  osx 10.6.8 (late 2010).

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.

MacBook Pro :: Safari Cannot Open Message - Pages Loading Takes Long

Feb 24, 2010

I've had my macbook pro for about a month. Its everything you read about when you make the switch. Great build, screen, keyboard, stable, ease of use. Everything...except internet surfing. It's a big disappointment. I spend a lot of time waiting for pages to load..or getting the safari can't open message. (When I refresh this page I often will get the page to pop right up.)

I loaded a plug in recommended in the site "my first mac"...but no difference. I loaded firefox but get the same results. My 3 year old sempron dell inspiron and my wifes new Dell studio 17 both kick the macbook pro's butt in surfing so i don't believe its my home network. I have gone to the genius bar and they did some minor stuff but I have the same issues still.

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.

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 :: Snow Leopard Takes Too Long To Sleep?

Aug 30, 2009

I recently upgrade my leopard to snow leopard and when ever i put the computer to sleep it takes quite a while for it to actually go into sleep mode.

Now I tried pmset with no success like so: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0

Why does snow leopard take so long to go to sleep, does anyone else have this issue? Is there anything else i could try to fix it. It says hibernatemode is 0 in pmset info table.
