    i had my macbook for nearly 2 months, ive repaired permissions twice.

    i Heard OSX does it maintenance during the night (late in to the night)

    The terminal command is:

    sudo periodic daily weekly monthly

    Alternatively, there are a few apps you can use instead. There's a free widget called Maintidget, and a utility called Macaroni which can change the schedule to suit you.

    Other utilities like Onyx and Cocktail can also perform the scripts at a click of a button. :)
