So shutting down my new nMP for either a reboot or just good old fashioned shutdown takes forever (up to 10 minutes). Anyone else having this issue?

Where should i be looking to see why its so slow?

My MacPro takes a long time to shut down when an application, such as Preview, Pages, KeyNote, Numbers, Mail, are open and hidden. When I remove these applications, the time to shutdown is similar the time to turn on, approximately 12 seconds. But, until now, it never took 10 minutes to do it.

Sounds like a driver or hardware problem somewhere. This can happen with things that are plugged into it.

Only had my monitor plugged in at the time and a network cable.

Have got a auto login item to my NAS folders, could it be that? (have the same on my iMac and that shutsdown fine)

I will be repairing the permissions to both my 10.9 macs in recovery hd shortly. Do it every OSX point update and probably 2/3 times a year.

Just did the MBP - must have been 30/40 needing fixing!
