    Yesterday I reinstalled Snow Leopard and of course in the beginning it shuts down within 2 seconds. But that same day for some reason, this shutdown takes somewhere between 5-10 seconds, which is not normal for Snow Leopard. And since then it always takes this long.

    The problem also occurs when Snow Leopard is just powered up, stands for 5 minutes without doing anything (so not a single program has run) and then I shut it down. So this can't be the cause of a program.

    I've had this issue also before I reinstalled Snow Leopard, but now I want to find out what is causing this. So is there anyway where I can see why it's taking so long?

    It's a 2.2ghz Macbook Pro running on 10.6.3

    My SL shutdown now takes 5-10 seconds. I miss the original shutdown, but I presumed it was just stuff building up on the system?

    Yeah every system slows down over time, but this much a few hours after a fresh install?
    It doesn't seem right
