    when restarting with the option to restore my apps upon login, all my last used apps load up instantly but my login items like dropbox, totalfinder, caffeine take about a minute to load. anyone else have this problem?

    on a mid 2012 i7 macbook air :(

    You may have an app loading that has a problem, or you may have something loading that you're not aware of.

    Delete any non-essential items from the following locations:
    • System Preferences > Accounts > yourusername > Login Items
      (Lion users: System Preferences > Users & Groups > yourusername > Login Items)

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

    • /Library/StartupItems/
      (Lion users: In Finder, click Go > Go to Folder > then enter the path)
    If you're having performance issues in general, this may help:
