    Anyone else having this issue? I have a 2014 rMBP 15" that used to boot up in just 4-5 sec, now it needs 30-40 secs. I have to wait 20 secs after the bootup sound until I see an Apple logo.

    I've made two installs over the last few days with Yosemite PB3 and my Cold Boot Up is around 9 to 11 seconds. My shutdown time varies between 2 to 4 seconds. Something is wrong with your system, programs, time machine if you used it or the install went bad. Sometimes the install could be messed up a bit. My MacBook Pro sig below.... With the MacMini 2011, with a HDD the story is different and slower of course.

    SpotLight (Indexing) might be adjusting as well, and may take a bit more time.

    Same with me, and I'm on a 2012 15" rMBP. I also starting getting a light boot up screen at the same time. :confused:

    I would boot with CMD-V (verbose mode) and see what its doing.

    Reseting the PRAM did the trick. Before that I also repaired disk permissions.

    Verbose mode didn't show anything wrong, but thanks for the suggestion.

    Man, you guys are lucky! I'm running 10.10 on a late 2008 MBP. Boot time is about 2 1/2 MINUTES. Sometimes 3!

    I'm running a new iMac (bought 3 months ago) and it still takes 2.5 to 3 minutes to boot.

    Must be the difference between SSD and "old" hard drives, 'eh?

    Must be; it's sad though that 10.10 on a new iMac boots 8 to 12 times slower than 10.5 on a 2008 iMac on a 5400 rpm HDD

    This is likely because your Macintosh HD is NOT selected as boot disk.

    Go to System Preferences / Startup Disk, select Macintosh HD as startup disk.

    Reboot.

    Good point, could be the sniffer boot procedure.

    BTW, I dual boot, speeds are about the same. One caveat, I don't mount, via /etc/fstab, Yosemite when booting Mavericks and vise versa.

    Mine is Pubic Beta 3 and its about 10 seconds cold boot up and 3 seconds for shut down.

    On my Hdd with the Mac Mini 2011 model its of course much longer boot up and shut down is about 20 seconds still.
