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?

Software :: Start Up Taking A Long Time On Powerbook

May 1, 2008

I recently upgraded to Mac OS X Lepoard and got Adobe Creative Suite CS3 loaded on my Powerbook G4. Now it's taking a long time to start up. It starts up with the normal gray screen with the apple logo in the middle then the screen turns blue for a while then I finally see my desktop. It just seems that the blue screen is there for a long time at first.

MacBook Air :: 13" Is Taking A Very Long Time To Boot-up?

Apr 14, 2012

My daughter purchased a MacBook Air 13" last 1.7 GH Intel Core i5, 4GB Memory. A couple of weeks ago, my daughter noticed that her computer was taking a long time to boot up. Apparently the bootup time has progressively lengthened to 3 - 5 minutes to get to her desktop. What happens is the boot-up process seems to stall on a grey screen and beach-balls until the desktop eventually appears.

Windows On Mac :: Vista 32 In Boot Camp Taking Long To Start

Feb 2, 2009

I've had a Vista 32 PC and it booted pretty fast. I now have a fully loaded iMac (newest one available) and Vista takes abnormally long to start. OS X boots very fast, and once Vista is loaded, it runs normal, no problems. I'm just wondering if there is a way to reduce the boot time, and why it would take longer to boot on this more powerful computer than my last generic PC, or if that's just a drawback of boot camp.

MacBook :: Time Machine Taking Weird Long Backups

May 15, 2009

I had not downloaded anything or even had anything that was new to be 6 gigabyte, but I had deleted alot of useless programs from my computer which I saved about 4 gigabyte, but why would time machine backup a random 6gigs...then the backup for some reason didn't really finish and the last backup it stated was may 3rd which is wrong. Then a few minutes ago again I wanted to backup but then it took a whopping 9 gigs of whatever crap! OMG! That makes like 15-16gigs in total which is like 1/4 of my entire 'used' portion of the harddrive.

It seems that everytime I delete a program it just backs up white bytes or something and it even made my 420 gigs of free space all the way down to like 402 gigs. Sorry about the crappy grammar etc etc, but this is freaky and is pissing me off and stupid time machine won't even let us see what it is god dam backing up....and why on earth did apple make restoring from a backup ONLY from your disk? My leopard disk is broken (the one that came with my computer) and my restore discs are tiger, because apple decided to make them seperate....is there a program to merge all my time machine backups and see what time machine backed up new and also restore from a time machine backup? Or am I asking for too much, might as well email apple.

OS X :: Long Shutdown Time Of MacBook Pro (10.5.8) - How To Make It Smooth

Apr 1, 2010

I am having issues with the shutdown time of my MBP. Namely, until couple of days ago, everything was fine and the shutdown process lasted for about 5 seconds tops. The other day, when I was about to go to bed and shut it down, the shutdown took unusually long time to execute. From that day on, every shutdown is the same. It lasts for about 40 seconds. This is kinda not that funny, because from time to time, like every couple of months the shutdown would be long like this, but the next shutdown would be very short. I consider this to be normal, as far as I read the various forum posts. What bothers me is that since couple of days ago, every shutdown lasts for about 45 seconds and it is not a problem, since the computer works fine, but is kinda irritating. I also have to mention that no major changes (installation or removal of programs) have been performed prior to this issue, and that my login items list is empty.

I have tried the following:

* Zapping the PRAM
* Executing various Onyx scripts, and used Onyx it to clean various caches.
* Reading, verifying and repairing permission using Disk Utility.


None worked for me.

I am pretty sure there are numerous threads about this or similar subject, but I have not found the one that describes this issue that I have.

Windows On Mac :: Checkdisk Taking Very Long Time On MBP

Jul 2, 2009

I tried running a chkdsk /f /r on my late 2008 MBP yesterday. Started around 18:30, it was still running this morning and had only got to stage 4 of 5 and was on 18%, that's over 12 hours! I'm running Windows 7 64bit RC, and the partition size is 84 GB. My desktop computer on the same o/s and a 150 GB partition, took about 45-50 mins to complete this on the weekend, and I was wondering if any other MBP users had run a full checkdisk and how long it takes on their machines?

Applications :: Taking Really Long Time To Load .wmv?

Nov 9, 2009

why but lately all the .wmv videos I have watched have taken an extremely long time to fully load. Before the whole file would load and I would be able to seek throughout the video to any part which I liked. Now however, the video instantaneously pops up but I have to wait for it to load before I am able to seek but I can basically watch the whole video before it fully loads (as if it was streaming).

In the attached picture, the Quicktime seek bar looks like this as I open it.

I have the free version of flip4mac, quicktime and OSX 10.5.8.

Mac Pro :: HD Spinning While Sleep - Shut Down Taking Long Time?

Mar 24, 2008

I recently did a clean install of Leopard on a brand new hard drive for my Late '06 Mac Pro. I currently have all updates installed, and the system is running very fast and very stable. But! I've been experiencing two problems over the week I've had Leopard installed, and I would just like to know if other MP users are sharing these as well...

1. Half the time I wake the computer from sleep, the fans blast off for about 10 seconds before the desktop is shown. Sometimes when the computer goes to sleep, via Energy Saver, my hard drives keep spinning.
2. Shut down takes an excruciatingly long time. My typical shut down lasts around a minute to a minute and a half.

I've read around and have seen a few problems like this, but I want to know if there are a larger majority of people with a Mac Pro who are experiencing either of these in Leopard. It's not such a nuisance, being I don't have to wait for shut down and I can wait around a few seconds when waking up the computer. Though, here's to hoping 10.5.3 or a firmware update can fix these two issues!

OS X :: Copying Files Taking Long Time While Using Internet?

Mar 21, 2010

After reformatting I got to the setup screen after the cool intro. I noticed several problems.

When on the screen asking about transferring files from another computer I chose no since I have none to transfer. But after choosing my option and trying to move forward it sat on that screen for a while until it finally moved forward. It didn't do this before.

On the screen where you'd set up your internet connection and it lists available wireless networks it was slow on there too. It took me a while to move forward after choosing a different option. It took a while to recognize that I had hit a different option. Again, it didn't do this before.

Under the internet sharing option it listed an option called bluetooth DUN. This option wasn't there before. If I recall it only used to list ethernate and airport under these options, but bluetooth DUN was the first option listed. I reformatted again because this seemed too strange, but even though ethernate was listed first bluetooth DUN was still is this listing.

On the second reformat I got a message when turning airport off. I was dumb and didn't write the message down, but I believe it said something about airport power. Again, I didn't get this message before. Not when I first set up my Mac and not on the first reformat.

None of this has happened before. It bothers me. What's wrong?

My Time Capsule backups are taking too long. Time Machine says it is indexing. However, I have had my Time Machine configured since I installed Lion last year and it has been making automatic backups every hour since. Why is it 'indexing' now, and why is it taking so long?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Deleting A User Account - Taking A Very Long Time?

I chose to delete a new user account that came over as part of a migration from my old MBP to a new MBP.  It was a firly large account but it is taking way longer than the time it took to migrate over.  There is no progress bar or time estimate so it's hard to know what's going on.

OS X :: Slow Internet Browsing / Safari Or Firefox Taking Long Time

I've had my MBP for about a year and recently I noticed that when I open Safari or Firefox it takes FOREVER to load a page.Even a small page like Google! I tried a reset for both browsers but that didn't help.I did some maintenance but no help there either.

This is my first Mac so I wanted to ask if I'm missing something.. should I be doing something maintenance-like that I'm not?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Java Based Applications Taking Long Time To Load

Mar 27, 2012

For quite a while, any Java based applications on my Mac have been taking a long time to launch. When I start them, the icon just bounces on the dock for about 2 minutes and then once it stops I force quit it, start it again and it loads fine. I have the same problem with both Minecraft and Angry IP Scanner so I'm near certain that it is not application specific.All other applications load almost instantly and there is plenty of memory available (8GB installed) for them to launch.Just for reference: all of the updates available on Software Update are installed as well.

Mac mini (Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.7.3), 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo, 8GB DDR3 RAM
