    Hi all

    I have MBP 7.1 with Samsung SSD 256 GB inside and freshly installed Mavericks 10.9.2. I'm wondering why shutdown time is too long (over 20 or 25 seconds). Boot time is pretty good (around 10 secs) and I can't believe that shutdown needs that much and that almost three times more than boot time.

    Is it normal, what's your experience and what could I do (if I could anything) to make shutdowns faster?

    When I shutdown it from Terminal:

    sudo shutdown -r now

    It is faster (10-15 secs).

    Hi. I noticed that sometimes mine is slower to shut down as well. It's been fast the past couple days though and the only thing I can think of it is I've been closing out of apps and unmounting my external hdd before shutdowns... I also reset the pram and smc, though I don't think it was that because it was still slow for a while after...

    I also looked in the console log and it showed several shutdown stalls, so yeah.

    Also... Do you have dropbox installed? Because when I searched someone said that caused slow shutdowns for them...

    I have dropbox installed, but it's not running always and it's not running when I'm shutting notebook down. I just reinstalled mavericks and it needs 30 seconds to shut down. i have no external hdd or other devices connected.
