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 Mavericks :: After Install Takes Longer Time To Start Up Mac

Jun 23, 2014

Two days ago i installed Mavericks on my MacBook Pro and since i did it, my mac runs very slowly. The pointer goes slowly and it takes a lot of time to load the programs (safari, word, etc.). It takes also longer time to start up my mac. I've checked on the activity monitor and the system activity amount is so high, around 80%. But what i've discovered is that when i plug in the charger, my mac suddenly runs faster and i've checked again the system activity is only around 1-2%. How can i make my mac runs faster even when i don't plug in the charger? 

MacBook Specification:

MacBook Pro 13-inch, Late 2011
Processor     2.4 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory        4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3

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 :: 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.

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 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?

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.

OS X :: Terminal Takes Long Time To Load?

Aug 7, 2010

I'm running 10.5.8 on my MBA. Lately I noticed when I start terminal, the program seems to launch right away. However the terminal window stays blank for a long time before the command prompt shows up. during this time usage of Safari becomes very slow too so feels like it's hugging on to some resource.

Software :: Takes Long Time While Booting

Apr 29, 2008

so a few days ago I tried to install a package of new fonts using font-book. I tried to (stupidly) install something like 1500 fonts at one time, which eventually crashed my machine. When I restarted my computer, it loaded all the way to the desktop where it stalled for like 10mins and then eventually started working OK. Now everytime I restart it, the same thing happens- I get to the desktop and all that loads for the first 10 mins is the little search icon in the top right corner. I tried the restore disks and used the 'store everything in a "previous system" file' option because I am really trying to avoid a clean erase. I've also tried clearing my cache and doing a nvram clear. Nothing has worked so far. The computer is acting like it is doing a lot of extra work in the background but I can't figure out what. I am tempted to think it might have something to do with some junky fonts I tried to install but that sounds too simple. I am running a g5 Imac on 10.4.11.

Applications :: Firefox Takes Long Time To Quit?

Mar 31, 2009

I seem to recall that up until the last several updates it used to be OK, but ever since it takes around 30 seconds or more for firefox to quit.

Even when I clear out caches, it still does it. I have no idea. I mean, Safari quit immediately, as does pretty much everything else. No biggie, just annoying.

Any ideas besides firefox sucks?
