    Hello,

    I have my Macbook Mid 2010 15 inch, 2.53 ghz model

    All have been working just fine, but since i got Maverick, i had this problem, that my computer would go REALLY REALLY slow, like i could do 1 action per 30 second, through my mouse can be moved just fine, but i just wouldnt get any respons, not even when waving my mouse over the Dock.

    recently, my harddrive was burned down, so i got installed a new one, and it all worked fine "Had trouble installing the system, but i think it went out".

    Do any of you have any suggestions? Would really be appreciated, since this is getting on my nerves.

    Best regards,

    Patrick:):):):):)

    How much RAM do you have installed?

    1 action in 30 seconds sounds like a serious problem. Did you check the drive and the permissions?
    If iti s the HDD again, you should think abouti nvesting in a SSD - those things make your mac feel like a new one

    I run with 4 GB ram, I have been running just smooth in all the period i've had this Macbook, but its just in the latest month i met this problem. I have tried to Repair harddrive, and check disc permissions.

    After ive been in that period, then i have about 30 minutes of free use, before it comes back to the same state again, it lasts for about 5-10 minutes :)

    I would look at Activity Monitor - there may be a runaway process that is eating cycles.
    What programs do you have open / what are you doing when this happens?

    Have you tried keeping Activity monitor open, and looking at what is taking up cpu cycles when this happens?
