I have a 2012 Macbook air 13 inch. For some reason my computer started to shut down very slowly. 25-30 seconds. I tried a clean install only to have it fail. Is there anyone with a potential solution for this?

Apparently, it is a software implementation. I also did a clean install with my 2012 maxed out Air and I still have slow shutdowns every once in a while. I'm not sure what is the trigger.

I'm a rolling stone.

What you could do is login to a different(new created User Account) and try if it is the same there, if it shuts down much faster there is something wrong in your regular account.

Made a new account and it still shut down slowly. Also it did manage to shut down in 2 seconds 1 time out of about 10 that I tried. Not sure what the problem is at all.

Also the nearest apple store is quite a ways away. It is a last resort option.
