    20 second shutdowns persist. From the login screen! :eek:

    6 shut down test using the logoff screen method over the keyboard method after a complete reformat and reinstall of OS 10.8.3 and all tests were 3 seconds. :6

    There's actually a manual fix for it. You change a value in some .plist or something. I did it a while ago. Search Google and you'll probably find it.

    If you shutdown your Mac from the LOGIN screen, then you have some “other” serious problems. ;-)

    ----------

    Yeah, that's a good & clean solution.

    I don't do games, was just answering a question. Either way for some people there is an issue there.

    Anybody remember when Apple said they were going to have fast O/S switching ?

    No. I paid $2.5k for a device with buggy software. Apple's fit and finish seems to be waning.

    Uh... no.

    I was merely trying to see if OSX was taking so long to shutdown because it was killing other apps first like, Dropbox, Skydrive, etc. Doing a shutdown prior to loading these things seems like a logical test. (i.e., shutting down from the login screen).

    Yep, still slow shutdown in 10.8.3 for my rMBP.. Hell, it still changes my wallpaper on re-boot...as well as deleting folders I add into Desktop & Screen Saver in System Preferences. I don't even care anymore. I actually LOL that my $2500 rig can't even handle these miniscule details.

    Mine has gotten slightly better, now it takes 5-10 seconds.

    Still could be better though.

    Not sure if you face a different problem than - but I know you've been involved in the topic for quite some time.

    I still face the problem occasionally under 10.8.3 - after using Airplay on a extensive basis. So for me it's not fixed.

    Either from the login screen or when only surfing/checking mails the shutdown takes under a second as usual for an SSD drive.

    It matters to me since we had a very short shut down with the other versions, and since it was no longer the case with 10.8.2, we felt that something was wrong with the OS, and needed fixing.

    We like a short shut down so those that do it, would like to leave the computer sooner rather than later, and turn it off to do something else. With 10.8.2, I had to wait until it was shut down so I could turn off the system completely as a safety measure when I leave my home. 20 seconds may not mean much to you, but it does mount up over a short period of time. And no I will never just put my system into a Sleep Mode.

    Even Microsofts Windows has a very short shutdown.

    If you don't mind it, good for you, but please stop bad mouthing those that do want a better faster system. :p

    6 times now, using the Log Off screen, the time needed is about 3 seconds.

    Edited: More activity and now my shut down is around 20 seconds again :mad:

    Right now, my near ancient 2009 MacBook Pro with a new SSD boots up in 12 seconds, and shuts down in 2 seconds with Lion 10.7.5.

    That fast on and off are the difference between grabbing the computer to do a quick task that might take a few minutes - rather than say, nah, I'll do it later (particularly if the start and off takes 1-2 minutes like it did before I got the SSD.

    All I can say is, you guys are mugs for being early adopters of Apples OS's. I'm not touching 10.8.3 with a 10 foot barge pole. Since 10.6, there's never been a .3 that's been rock solid. If 10.8.3 is rock solid, it'd be a first.

    In my experience, 10.6 didn't come good until .6 -- however you wax lyrical about Snow Leopard, it was a dog at the beginning. Leopard was even worse. Lion has come good around 10.7.4. So if ML is great at .3, that'd be incredibly ... unlikely.

    Below is my system log, right after shutdown. I'm listing only the "timeout" items that failed to close (they are the same as 10.8.2 for me):

    Damn I was hoping that my 25 sec turn off lag would have been sorted with the 10.8.3...

    ----------

    Interesting point, when I get home I will check what mine looks like..

    Did you upgraded with the combo or not? Any KP on restart? Ideally I would like to updgrade asap to sort the slow shot down but I am scared of potential KP...
