    When turning on the computer (from a completely off state) it takes very long to get all my log-in apps started. Safari pages don't just appear anymore, there is actually some loading time.... some apps just aren't as snappy....

    Is this happening to anyone else?

    was slow on first boot, but just as good after that.

    i know this sounds like a typical IT support response (im not in IT or support) but i found restarting a few times seems to speed things up. The same thing happened when i first installed snow leopard.... have no idea why this works but it did for me.

    This is due to the way Mac OS X handles restarting. The first boot after shutting the computer down completely (a so-called cold boot) will be slower than subsequent restarts after that point, because the boot caches Mac OS X uses to speed boot time will be populated fully on the second reboot.

    I usually clear caches in Onyx and reboot twice and boot times will speed back up. Also, repairing permissions also needs to be done on a regular basis, especially after an OS update.
