Possible fix for slow shut down and desktop background reset

For awhile now I too have experienced slow shut down times also the desktop background resetting when i restart or shutdown. I went into system preferences, then to security and I disabled automatic login. I have to login everytime i power up now. It has fixed my issue with the desktop background resetting original also, seems my shutdown times have greatly improved also. Lemme know if this worked for anybody else. Thanks

The things you have done are entirely unrelated to slow shutdowns. I suspect that somewhere your tweaks forced a rebuild of permissions and purged a few things temporarily.

The shutdown issue will be back.

Agree 100%. Give it a few days or even less. It will return

Type these commands into the terminal window one by one and right after terminal repair permissions in the disc utility. You will be asked to enter your password after the first entry....You will notice a 3 second shutdown

sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.coreservices.appleevents ExitTimeOut -int 1

sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.securityd ExitTimeOut -int 1

sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder ExitTimeOut -int 1

sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.diskarbitrationd ExitTimeOut -int 1

sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.coreservices.appleid.authentication ExitTimeOut -int 1

I hear ya I can't explain it. Im more pleased that the desktop background isn't constantly resetting every time i power down or reset. Its been 3 days so far and the long shut down times haven't been back yet.

Perhaps others would like to try this OP. For me, I will not since I like having the auto log in myself
