    My mac is slowing down at start-up! Sometimes it takes ~29 seconds, other times it takes ~50! It seems to depend on how long the mac is running for. Attached is a list of logs, advice is appreciated.

    You're complaining about 50 seconds? Stop turning off your iMac. Problem solved.

    Not kidding. There are no errors in the logs, and this time isn't anything to worry about, especially considering your machine is working perfectly otherwise. (It is, right?)

    Oh, and uninstall the antivirus program. That'll speed your computer up.
