    My MBP has been on for two weeks now (waiting for that reboot after 10.5.2 update), so it's been a little laggy. I decided to log-out to clear the cache and stuff and noticed that it took over a minute to return to the log-in screen! I tried logging out again and it still took about a minute!

    Is there something wrong??? Please help

    Thanx

    Have you run any maintenance recently? Such as repairing permissions? If not, I would try that and see if it helps.

    definitely do what He said^^^ also make sure that in your network settings are not set to close all network connections, I am pretty sure that takes a minute too.
    25 seconds for me to turn on, 35 to turn off

    1. Run the maintenance scripts (sudo periodic daily weekly monthly)
    2. Clear any log files in ~/Library/Logs
    3. Repair permissions.

    You could also try something like Onyx.

    Thanks all for your help.

    I have run permission repair and installed Onyx to clean up the caches. Onyx did screw up the shut-down process (i waited 25 minutes before i manually pressed the power switch).

    Now everything works fine though. Start up takes 45 seconds and shutdown about 30-40.

    :)
