I have a 2011 Macbook Air (base 13-inch model) with OS X Lion 10.7.2 installed (my first mac) and Office for Mac 2011 which is also up to date with the latest updates. My issue is when I open any of the applications (don't use Outlook so I'm talking Word, Excel or Powerpoint here) it will load up the app quickly, lets say within one or two bounces max but occasionally, and I haven't been able to figure out why or under what situations it does this, it will take a good 20 seconds or more to load up any of the apps (the icon keeps bouncing while it seems it is loading up). This doesn't seem right since this device is blazing fast normally. Is this a documented issue or does it sound like something is amiss here? Anything I can change in settings to fix this? Everything should be stock as I haven't messed with any settings, etc. No other issues with it otherwise. Thanks in advance for any help!
