For those still with issues, check out posts #92 & #96. This has been fine for me for over a couple of months now.

navigate to the Macintosh HD on your desk top open it go to libary and delete the Java folder then empty the trash can

You dont need the Java files and if you do visit a site requiring them you will be prompted to down load them and they will be the new ones.

Result - INSTANT SHUT DOWN!

Try it it works

This help me down to 1 sec on my rMBP, further more since java is need for the people of Denmark (goverment gave a job to some people who were lazy and used java for our security protocol for connecting to banks, goverment and much more. talk about stupidity!) i changed the settings for how much space java could use on the disk.

Worked for me twice than back to the 20 second shut down, with a 3 second shut down from time to time. Not a good fix. Need Apple to address this at their end

I spent HOURS on this issue, unsintalling programs, dragging crap to my trash, etc, etc, etc... Then I uninstalled Google Chrome using app cleaner and my shutdown went from about 40 seconds to 1 second.

Just curious, how do u explain the 30 second shutdowns with a "fresh Mountain Lion" install?

Google Chrome isn't part of ML?

Just trying to find the problem myself...

I don't explain it, however this only fixed one boot, the next boot was the same as always. It would appear i was able to permanently fix it with this post: http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost...&postcount=103

I wrote another feedback thing to apple. So annoying they don't fix this. How hard can it be.
Windows 7 shuts down faster then OSX, thats not right!

just downloading 10.8.3 anyway

Thumbs up Why obsess about shutdown time?

10.8.3 did not improve my shutdown time much but I do not give a damn. It's a non-issue to me. Also, I shut down infrequently.

10.8.3 installed and runs flawlessly (so far) and Safari runs faster.

I've been running Webkit since I got my new Mac. It's been smoother than Safari for months now, and it seems to still be smoother even after today's update.

The workaround mention previously addresses this - 1 sec shutdown every time now for me...

Looks like people have a lot of success with this code. What does it actually do to speed up shutdown?

sudo launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.coreservices.appleevents.plist

All it does is wait 2 seconds for that process to stop and it it hasn't it kills it. This process sometimes hangs on shutdown which delays a shutdown until it is killed by the system. This code just speeds up the killing of the process.

Question

When I restart or sleep the macbook, its instant. But when I shut down the computer it sometimes takes forever, or sometimes pretty fast. What is the computer doing while shutting down?
