View Full Version : Very slow shutdown

May 20, 2010, 01:44 PM
Ever since 10.6 my MBA has shut down in seconds, however this afternoon its now taking over a minute - can anyone shed any light as to why?

I've attached the log for a shutdown from button pressed to actual power off if anyone could point anything out...

Do you have an app running in the background? Is there an app that starts automatically when you startup that you don't realize is there in the background? Go into system preferences, accounts, login items to see if there's something in there maybe.

Sorry, but that's all the advice I have for you. BTW, is it an SSD?

Yip its SSD...

Login items are Growlhelper, Evernote helper, dropbox and magicprefs but theyve been running for sometime..
