    i've just got a MBP 13. i was able to set the speed at which the applications open, so rather than the little icon in the dock bouncing 3 or 4 times it bounces twice then opens.

    i cannot find where i did this :confused:

    also is it ok to set it to the fastest if you like?

    I don't know where to change this, but I do know that the number of bounces doesn't influence how fast applications open. They will always start as fast as possible. When you think about, you will see that it would not make very much sense to make the speed at which applications open variable because every user would obviously want them to open as fast as possible.

    In addition to the information ergdegdeg (I think of Turkey reading this name) provided, every application opens at different speeds, as a small application like TextEdit will open faster than Safari or even iTunes (which will open slower the bigger the library is). And Safari will open faster than PhotoShop and so forth. Once the application has been opened and closed again, the grand re-opening will be faster if there are still some remnants of that application in the RAM.
