Boot-up: 33 secs Restart: 40 secs Shutdown: 5-12 secs Is this normal? (2.4 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo) I got my new iMac over a week ago. After Tuesday i noticed it was taking slightly longer to shutdown and boot-up. That day i did a Software Update and installed Roxio Toast. I've never owned a Mac previously, so i wouldn't know how long it would normally take. How long does your iMac take?
