    My iMac is committing slow suicide. Okay, so I installed leopard, got the latest updates, added my music, some apps, and then turned on time machine. I noticed some slowdown, so I decided to turn it off. Slight problem: I can't. Every single time I enter the system preferences pane for time machine, it stops responding. So, I gave up for a while, but the problems have only gotten worse. Apps beachball randomly, finder locked up and would'nt relaunch. And to top it all off, the 1 minute startup time I had after my install has become 5 and a half minutes. Is that normal? Please help me, or I might do something drastic, like removing time machine completely or downgrading to tiger again.

    Have Leopard loaded on an external drive and its getting very very slow and it is getting worse. Opening files is hardly impossible. I'am a professional user and i can't get any speed in my work. Using Indesign Acrobat Quark all the graphic art softwares.
