    Hello members,
    I have a problem with my MacBook Pro6,2 Mid 2010, OS X 10.9.5. It runs very slow, it needs few minutes to startup, then works normally.
    I did read a lot of posts about this problem but nothing helped me so far.
    I tried this things:
    1. Reset PRAM and NVRAM
    2. /sbin/fsck -fy but return message is that my disk is ok
    3. startup safe mode, and when GUI is started my system gets slow.
    4. I cheked startup items and my list is empty.
    5. HDD capacity is 500 GB, and 200 GB it's free.
    6. Tried repaired disk permissions few times.
    7. Reseting by holding left shift, control, option and power button for 10 sec.
    8. Finally, i tried to reinstall OS. No luck.

    I don't know where to look for log files, so I would appreciate your help. Good thing is that I do have backup. If you can help me or know something that I didn't tried to do please reply.
    Thank you :)

    SSD is option. But I would like to know why is suddenly my Mac become slow. If I do restore using Time Machine it behave normally. That's confusing me.
    Few times i had this problem and I resolved it with restore option. When I think every time this problem occurred after going to sleep mode. Thank you for replying so far.

    Mmmmmm

    Well if a time machine restore sorts it out it suggest you have an App or process that when activated after a restore then slows your computer down. That can be very hard to track down.

    An ssd will of course speed up the entire system (and is always a good option if you can afford to do it) but sorting out your software issues should still be done they can be hard to track down.

    When it happens again look at the CPU usage stats and see whats slowing you down and using alll you CPU or RAM...
