    I just installed Parallel 5 and realized that my Mac OS shut down time is slower. Do you guys have this problem? I am using 10.6.2.

    If you're running Parallels, then it ain't a surprise because it has to shut down the Windows as well. Try OnyX

    If Windows is running when you shut down, then obviously it will be slower, since Windows must shut down too. If it is NOT running, then any slowdown should not be noticeable - although Parallels installs a few drivers to make it work, these kernel extensions don't take long to load/unload themselves.

    Only when parallels was first installed did I notice a certain difference.

    I noticed a slow shutdown even when I am not running Parallel 5. I uninstalled it and my shutdown get back to normal, which is pretty fast, about 5 seconds.
