    Hi All,

    Im experiencing significantly slower shut-down times as of recently...
    I'm unsure as to what may have caused this due to the fact i hit the shut-down button in OSX and then leave my laptop to shut off.

    I'm using a 2010 MBP 2.4GHz with an SSD in an optibay and HDD in the normal HDDbay. I also have a windows partition, but i doubt that matters... Otherwise, my machine has no other sizeable and most likely, notable, modifications.

    I've had a look at the system.log of what is happening when i shut-down my laptop and the bolded lines are the ones of interest and causing the majority of the delay.

    I've googled sections of the code that is bolded in an attempt to understand what is happening, and ive found that mDNSresponder is related to bonjour. If anyone can help diagnose what i can do to stop this from happening i would be grateful.

    Cheers,
    Austin

    Hi Austin.

    I am having EXACTLY the same problem! Check out my previous thread: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1140836.

    I've included a screengrab from Console - System Log. Exactly the same delay of 20 secs, seemingly caused by mDNSResponder.

    I have searched the forums and Google high and low, but still have no solution. I had a long chat with AppleCare the other day and, having gone through a list of troubleshooting steps, the only other suggestion was to reinstall Mac OS on the machine (which I haven't done yet).

    Like you, I would welcome any feedback / ideas / suggestions! Fingers crossed!

    Thanks.

    Rob

    Hi Rob!

    Thats what im thinking of doing, but as I've got an SSD and optibay set-up on my MBP its a bit of a ball-ache as getting everything back to how it was takes so long...

    I've got a thread going on the apple discussions aswell, So it's probably a good idea to post that you've got the same problem so it gets a bit more attention.

    Download ONXY and run the full scripts for optimization. Then reset PRAM after reboot.

    Hi Lavrishevo, I've already done both of these, aswell as a Safeboot and disk repair and disk permissions repair.

    Do you have any more suggestions?

    Hi Austin,

    Thanks for the heads-up on your Apple Discussions post - have replied, so let's see what happens!

    Like you, I'd really rather not reinstall OS X if I can help it. AppleCare assured me that it's no trouble really, but in my experience, that's never actually the case!

    Cheers,

    Rob

    I know what you mean... I actually re-installed from a time machine back-up yesterday in an attempt to reduce boot and shutdown times (and to get round the case-insensitive issue in steam for mac) and all these problems have transferred over; which is just lovely.

    If i dont get a reply from any of these forums posts i've made, I'l probably call it a day and have to start completely anew with a fresh install

    I have solved my delayed shutdown issue (thank God!). Mine was due to installing the drivers for a BearExtended WiFi adapter. Uninstalled, rebooted and shutdown is now back at 2 secs. Luckily, I don't tend to use the BearExtender that often, so uninstalling the drivers is no great shakes.

    Thanks for the thoughts and suggestions - very much appreciated.

    Rob
