    Hi folks,

    As soon as Time Machine starts up everything else my MBP works on slows down to taking about 10 times as long. This is not the initial backup, this is the hourly backup since the initial has completed. Time Machine is backing up to an xServe in my office network with both the ethernet cable and wireless connections working.

    In fact, when I clicked the :apple: in the top left of the screen to get my MBP's specs it took 13 seconds to show the dropdown menu.

    Anyone have any suggestions? Specs below.

    10.6.5/2.53 GHz Intel Core i5/4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3



    I've just run Omni Disk Sweep and it has revealed that my Virtual Memory folder is a whopping 11 GIGS! This is after a restart less than 5 hours ago. Something is terrible wrong here. Anyone know what I should do?
