Well, I ran it, I only gave me about 10 seconds quicker for startup time. Roughly 1 minute 37 seconds on a iBook 500 with 384 ram....

i'm amazed!! But how can something like this get by Apple? No one and i mean no one would ever stumble across this 'fix'.
Do the new dual machines suffer with this? esp as they come with Jaguar pre-installed (so i'm told)

Thanks 4the tip! :)

Alright....for the next group of people that try this.... why don't you time your boot up time before you try the fix then do the fix and then time it again....see exactly how much more time you gain..... Mine was just 10 seconds. Also state what kind of Mac you have and how much Ram you installed.

I don't care about boot time, as I only do it once a month or so, but I do like the increased Finder response when dealing with 2000+ file folders, the massive load time reductions in iTunes (54 seconds to 18 seconds with 34,000 songs), and the better responsiveness in the Terminal.

Only about 10s improvement for me as well on my PB667, but the improvement you see is obviously going to be dependent on how horked your permissions are to start with. The guy who was seeing three minute startup times on his QS867 was obviously having more problems than most. My PB took about a minute (from chime to login screen) before the permission fixes. Jaguar startup times were already pretty screamy for me.

WOW!

Sensational!
My boot time went from a mediocre 1:13 to a blazingly fast 1:11!
My shut down time went from a whopping 41s to an amazing 39s!
My overall system snappiness has increased a phenomenal 0%!

Whoopee!

My machine is a 933 w/ 1 GB RAM.



OK, so this little tip was useless to me, but hey, keep 'em coming. I'm willing to give anything a shot.

Plus, I enjoyed reading my Australian MacWorld for 10 minutes while my permissions were being repaired. :)

If I restart 150 times I might even make that 10 minutes of my life back! :D

boot time has got the be the most idiotic "benchmark" i have ever heard of. who gives a ****ing **** how fast it boots?? i don't. my computer is on all the time anyways. i expect it to be fast when its FINISHED booting, i could care less if it took 5 minutes to boot. this is UNIX people, get over it.

I refuse to leave my computer on unless I'm using it. It's noisy (I can't sleep with constant hum and whirs) and draws power. I shut my computer down if I'm not going to be using it for an hour. That's why I like fast startup. My B/W G3 400 took about a minute and a half to startup with any system. My new Dual Ghz/DDR can be at the finder in 30secs. That's awesome.
