Running a Mid 2010 MBP with maxed out RAM. I upgraded from SL to Mavericks and I am running very sluggish. I am not running any memory intensive apps either. Just browsing the web and the like. I know that after SL, the OSes starting getting into features that "save the state" of the machine so that one can start up their Mac and continue working where they left off. My guess is is that there are background processes such as this and possibly others that are contributing to the sluggish behavior. Any suggestions? Are there any features that I have control of that I can toggle off to improve performance? My next step would be to downgrade back to SL, but I am assuming that they have stopped supporting it (or will soon stop). Thank you for reading.
