    It's been inconsistent... on days I'll get the 10-15 second start up times... and then today for example I'm getting the 1 minute long start up times.

    I checked my SSD speed and I'm getting a read/write of roughly 430.

    Is it just a software thing that's being worked out on ML? I've also double checked my startup disk.

    How are you measuring start up time? From when to when?

    Check the following locations for items that automatically launch on startup. Removing non-essential items will contribute to faster start-up times:
    • System Preferences > Accounts > yourusername > Login Items
      (Lion and ML users: System Preferences > Users & Groups > yourusername > Login Items)

    • /Library/LaunchAgents/
      (Lion and ML users: In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder > then enter the path above)

    • ~/Library/LaunchAgents/
      (Lion and ML users: In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder > then enter the path above)

    • /Library/StartupItems/
      (Lion and ML users: In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder > then enter the path above)

    As soon as I touch the power button I start my stop watch. When I first got it, it was an easy 10-15 seconds... but now as of late it's been either 1 minute or 10-15 seconds. So I'm just confused as to why it's now all over the place and why its taking so long.

    That's when you start it. When do you stop it?

    Stop as soon as the screen switches from Apple logo to desktop

    Just like other videos of people doing a bootup

    Except it'll stay on the Apple screen and I watch that loading circle for a minute... where as when it dosen't wanna take a minute that little loading logo dosen't even show.

    Did you go through the startup items, as suggested?

    When I go to accounts I don't have anything starting up.

    /Library/LaunchAgents/= nothing is in there

    ~/Library/LaunchAgents/= something from google is in there...

    /Library/StartupItems/= nothing is in there

    I even tried removing the google thing that was in one of the folders but I'm still getting the minute long start up time. I don't get why it's been jumping around! Yesterday she was booting up in 15 seconds.

    UPDATE!

    So I thought about disabling my bluetooth and that didn't do anything so I proceeded to disable both that along with my WIFI and now all of a sudden she's booting up fast again. I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it so I reenabled both to see if it would go back to the slow start up but it didn't, it's booting up fast.

    So I'm not sure if that really did anything or of my rMBP just decided to wanna boot up fast again.

    I'm glad you got it worked out, at least for now.
