    I timed my brand new rMBP and it took 40 seconds to restart and get all the way back up to the desktop.

    My 2009 13" MBP that I put in a SSD took only 22 seconds.

    Why does this MBP take so much longer?

    Check to see what you've got automatically launching at startup.

    Yes - it should boot in less than 20 secs

    System pref- startup disk- check your startup disk and hit restart. Sometimes that works.

    I didn't throughly read the first post - 40 sec restart is normal right now - many rMBP are hanging up on shut down.

    in system preference, make sure highlight the start up disk does make a difference.

    what takes the longest time for me is the "shutdown" process, the reboot itself is quick.. funny how it takes longer time to close down everything than to boot up :rolleyes:

    It's kind of random for me. Most of the time when I shutdown or restart it takes awhile and I get the loading grey screen. Sometimes when my computer wakes up from sleep and I click shutdown nothing will happen and maybe 15 seconds later it will finally go to the screen and shutdown. I think it's software based. It's not really a big deal but when my computer does start up, it's freaking fast haha.

    I have 2012 mbp with an SSD and HDD btw.

    Mine probably takes around 40 sec.

    20 sec to shutdown (10.8.3 should fix that) and 15 sec to boot.

    I agree a full restart takes stupid long for a SSD because the shutdown time is brutally long.

    I guess that's normal, you'll just have to wait for 10.8.3 unfortunately.

    Cue the apologists about to tell everyone that shutting down/rebooting your machines is wrong. You're suppose to use the "sleep" feature.

    40 seconds to do a full reboot and back working again and you're complaining?
