My MacBook Pro is running very slow.  I've run repair permissions without positive result.  Does anyone have any ideas?

My MacBook Pro (2010) is runnign very slow.  This came on all of a sudden.  It opens, closes, reboots, etc., all much slower than ever before.  I have used the repair disk permissions without any positive result.  Does anyone have any ideas?

First, back up all data immediately, as your boot drive might be failing.
Take these steps when you notice the problem.
Step 1
Launch the Activity Monitor application in any of the following ways:
☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Activity Monitor in the icon grid.
Select the CPU tab of the Activity Monitor window.
Select All Processes from the menu in the toolbar, if not already selected.
Click the heading of the % CPU column in the process table to sort the entries by CPU usage. You may have to click it twice to get the highest value at the top. What is it, and what is the process? Also post the values for % User, % System, and % Idle at the bottom of the window.
Select the System Memory tab. What values are shown in the bottom part of the window for Page outs and Swap used?
Next, select the Disk Activity tab. Post the approximate values shown for Reads in/sec and Writes out/sec (not Reads in and Writes out.)
Step 2
You must be logged in as an administrator to carry out this step.
Launch the Console application in the same way as above. Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left.
Post the 50 or so most recent messages in the log — the text, please, not a screenshot.
When posting a log extract, be selective. Don't post more than is requested.
Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into a message.
Important: Some personal information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Edit it out before posting.

  • I have installed a trial of Adobe illustrator on my macbook pro. I want to trace an image using the custom trace button but can't. Does anyone have any ideas how I could custom trace?

    I have installed a trial of Adobe illustrator on my macbook pro. It is the 2014 release of adobe illustrator. I want to trace an image using the custom trace button.
    I start a new document. Then I place my scanned pencil/colored pencil drawing, in to the document. I have tried scanning and then placing it as a jpeg, bitmap, and tiff file. I have tried scanning and then placing it, in color and in black and white. The scan mode I use is flatbed. Adobe illustrator allows me to select the default button and one of eleven preset buttons (e.g high fidelity photo), but it does not allow me to click the custom trace button. The custom trace button is grey while all the other buttons are white.
    Does anyone have any ideas how I could custom trace?

    It seems pointless to adjust it afterwards because it is then only a couple a pencil lines rather then a full drawing. And how do I adjust it afterwards? Would I do this using the different buttons under the window button?

  • I have acrobat pro on my lap top and recently installed acrobat pro on my Mac Mini, but the text recognition function is not working, does anyone have any advice on how to remedy this problem?

    I have acrobat pro on my lap top and recently installed acrobat pro on my Mac Mini, but the text recognition function is not working, does anyone have any advice on how to remedy this problem?

    On my laptop when I open up a pdf file and do a search for a particular
    text phrase it prompts me to run a character analysis.  Whereas on my mac
    mini, when I try to engage the same process it just says it couldn't find
    the phrase and doesn't even try and run a character analysis. I tried
    clicking on the tool bar and the recognize text tab but nothing there seems
    to do anything.
    In trying to figure out the issue on my own I noticed one thing.  I run a
    small law firm in St. Louis and I scan in all my files to which are
    subsequently emailed to my outlook account where I will save them as pdf's
    to their respective folders.  On my laptop when I open up an email from my
    scanner I see the image of a acrobat document next to the attachment
    paperclip symbol.  However, when I open up the same email on my mac mini I
    notice instead of an acrobat file image it shows a Preview file image (the
    program used to open up pdf's before I installed acrobat).
    Hope this helps!
    Sincerely,
    Jonathan McAllister

  • I am having trouble trying to boot from my lion osx install disk on a 2007 macbook.  The disk ejects when I start up with the option key depressed.  Anyone have any ideas?

    I am having trouble trying to boot from my lion osx install disk on a 2007 macbook.  The disk ejects when I start up with the option key depressed.  Anyone have any ideas?
    Thank you.

    How did you get a Lion OSX install disc? They don't exist. Do you mean the gray disks that came with your 2007 MacBook?
    If you mean the gray disks, try starting up with the "c" key held down.
    What version of OSX is on your MacBook now? Have you tried booting from the Recovery partition?

  • My Macbook Pro 2010 is very slow, I know its old but can I speed it up?

    I have had my Macbook pro for nearly 4 years so I expect it to have slowed down, but now its getting ridiculous and difficult to use. Does anyone have any ideas on how to speed it up? I have removed all my larger files and the most memory is now take up by my music on I tunes. Aside from buying a new one which I would love to do but cant afford can anyone offer any suggestions to speed it up?
    Thanks.

    I have a MacBook Pro Mid 2010 Model.
    My machine is working better than ever since I installed an 8Gb RAM Upgrade and Upgraded the HDD only yesterday. My drive had developed an error and was causing it to be very sluggish. I posted this somewhere else a little earlier:
    Quote:...
    My Mid 2010 Macbook Pro was getting sluggish even after installing 8Gb of RAM sometime ago. During a verbose boot I noticed an I/O error on my primary drive. Rather than mess about trying to determine exactly why I did a quick search for sensibly priced standard disk drives. Large SSD's are out of my price range so I opted for a 1Tb Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid SSHD which is a standard drive with 8Gb of high quality flash built in.
    I swapped out the old drive and put it in a USB Caddy, installed the new drive, blew out all the dust and debris while doing so and reassembled. Booted into recovery from the old drive and reinstalled OSX Mavericks and then left the system to recover my files from the old drive.
    WOW!! What a difference!... The read/write is around 100Mb/s. Thats near twice the reading from the original MacBook drive and with the added flash on this new Seagate the boot up time is near the speed of SSD. These Seagate Hybrids are a little more expensive that the regular... but very well worth it.

  • IPhone 5 battery is very very bad. Used it for 2HR & 30MIN and down to 50%... Anyone have any ideas how to fix it?

    I got my iPhone 5 64GB last Saturday and the battery is a pile of wank!!! Does anyone have any idea what I could do to sort it? I know about brightness and wifi, I do all that! Many thanks.

    Your battery experience is unusual. While I don't use my phone a lot it is on 24/7. The mists I've seen my battery run down is to abut 45% after 10 hours offi the charger.
    Here's how to reset (reboot) your phone. Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously ignoring the red slider until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the device restart.
    If that is what you did I suggest making an appointment at and Apple store for a consultation.

    1. This procedure is a diagnostic test. It changes nothing, for better or worse, and therefore will not, in itself, solve the problem.
    2. If you don't already have a current backup, back up all data before doing anything else. The backup is necessary on general principle, not because of anything in the test procedure. There are ways to back up a computer that isn't fully functional. Ask if you need guidance.
    3. Below are instructions to run a UNIX shell script, a type of program. All it does is to collect information about the state of the computer. That information goes nowhere unless you choose to share it. However, you should be cautious about running any kind of program (not just a shell script) at the request of a stranger on a public message board. If you have doubts, search this site for other discussions in which this procedure has been followed without any report of ill effects. If you can't satisfy yourself that the instructions are safe, don't follow them. Ask for other options.
    Here's a summary of what you need to do, if you choose to proceed: Copy a line of text from this web page into the window of another application. Wait for the script to run. It usually takes a few minutes. Then paste the results, which will have been copied automatically, back into a reply on this page. The sequence is: copy, paste, wait, paste again. Details follow.
    4. You may have started the computer in "safe" mode. Preferably, these steps should be taken in “normal” mode. If the system is now in safe mode and works well enough in normal mode to run the test, restart as usual. If you can only test in safe mode, do that.
    5. If you have more than one user, and the one affected by the problem is not an administrator, then please run the test twice: once while logged in as the affected user, and once as an administrator. The results may be different. The user that is created automatically on a new computer when you start it for the first time is an administrator. If you can't log in as an administrator, test as the affected user. Most personal Macs have only one user, and in that case this section doesn’t apply. Don't log in as root.
    6. The script is a single long line, all of which must be selected. You can accomplish this easily by triple-clicking anywhere in the line. The whole line will highlight, though you may not see all of it in the browser window, and you can then copy it. If you try to select the line by dragging across the part you can see, you won't get all of it.
    Triple-click anywhere in the line of text below on this page to select it:

    Copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C.
    7. Launch the built-in Terminal application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid.
    Click anywhere in the Terminal window and paste (command-V). The text you pasted should vanish immediately. If it doesn't, press the return key.
    8. If you see an error message in the Terminal window such as "syntax error," enter
    exec bash
    and press return. Then paste the script again.
    9. If you're logged in as an administrator, you'll be prompted for your login password. Nothing will be displayed when you type it. You will not see the usual dots in place of typed characters. Make sure caps lock is off. Type carefully and then press return. You may get a one-time warning to be careful. If you make three failed attempts to enter the password, the test will run anyway, but it will produce less information. In most cases, the difference is not important. If you don't know the password, or if you prefer not to enter it, press the key combination control-C or just press return three times at the password prompt. Again, the script will still run.
    If you're not logged in as an administrator, you won't be prompted for a password. The test will still run. It just won't do anything that requires administrator privileges.
    10. The test may take a few minutes to run, depending on how many files you have and the speed of the computer. A computer that's abnormally slow may take longer to run the test. While it's running, there will be nothing in the Terminal window and no indication of progress. Wait for the line
    [Process completed]
    to appear. If you don't see it within half an hour or so, the test probably won't complete in a reasonable time. In that case, close the Terminal window and report the results. No harm will be done.
    11. When the test is complete, quit Terminal. The results will have been copied to the Clipboard automatically. They are not shown in the Terminal window. Please don't copy anything from there. All you have to do is start a reply to this comment and then paste by pressing command-V again.
    If any private information, such as your name or email address, appears in the results, anonymize it before posting. Usually that won't be necessary.
    12. When you post the results, you might see the message, "You have included content in your post that is not permitted." It means that the forum software has misidentified something in the post as a violation of the rules. If that happens, please post the test results on Pastebin, then post a link here to the page you created.
    Note: This is a public forum, and others may give you advice based on the results of the test. They speak only for themselves, and I don't necessarily agree with them.

    my macbook pro is being very slow does it need cleaning up? if so what do i do?
    is there a programme to use or should i take back to apple to ask them.

    What do you mean by slow? Slow can mean many things. Is it the applications? Your Internet speeds? Do you feel you could benefit from a memory upgrade? I'm just looking for a little more information so I can help you effectively.

    Hi robfromkinglake west,
    Try and isolate the issue.  Check if it's only with this drive.
    Check the drive with Disk Utility

    I've never seen a drive take 20 minutes to mount.

    I recently bought, from the original website of Adobe, Photoshop elements 13. However, when I go with my mouse pointer over the menu, It hangs or he works very slow. Does anyone have an idea how I can fix it? I have already downloaded updates, both from Adobe and Windows. I have a new pc with window 8.1.

    I keep saying this over and over, in the hope that people who do a search will find it.  Apple cannot possibly test for or be reponsible for the bazillion combinations of adapter, cables, and TV's out there.  The only monitors that are 100% guaranteed to work with the MacBook Pro are the Cinema Displays and Thunderbolt Displays, because, they're made by Apple.  They're expensive, but they work perfectly.
    My guess is that you bought a cheap MDP to HDMI cable, or have a defective one.  From my reading of these boards over the past few months, cheap cables have a high failure rate.  And the regular priced ones have only a slightly less of one.  Try a new one.  Make sure you do not damage the Thunderbolt port.
