    Strange but unless I shut down my 2010 Imac at least twice a week scrolling gets sticky and jumpy.After I shut it down and turn back on its smooth as silk for about three days.Putting it in sleep mode doesnt help.It has to be shut down.

    Open Activity Monitor and see if you have page outs, if so you might need more RAM.

    1. Try a quick log-out and then log back in. Any better?

    2. Instead of a full shutdown, just restart. Any better?

    Sometimes the simplest solution is the best. I suggest that you just restart the thing once a day. It takes only a minute and if you do so, you won't be bothered by the above problem.

    I shut mine down every night, and then restart in the morning.
    A fresh start for both of us...
