Suggest you run Disk Utility and run "repair permissions" and restart.. on an unrelated wifi issue, you probably also should go into Systems Preferences/Network and delete "-" Airport wifi service and recreate "+" it.

I've tried a Guest account and tried repairing permissions and countless other things to resolve the issues and nothing seems to resolve any of the issues I've been having. It's worth noting that some of these issues were present in Lion when I first had my rMBP before upgrading to ML when it came out. That's why I wondered if it may be something to do with old stuff that may have been transferred over.

Try a re-install "in place". It's a lot easier.
Boot up holding command-r keys into your Recovery Volume.
The screen should give you these choices...
Restore from TM backup
Reinstall Mac OS X

First run Disk Utility Repair Disk, if you get errors run until no errors reported or reports "the disk cannot be fixed". Then, choose Reinstall OS X. This will be an install "in place" and shouldn't effect any of your own data or settings.
If you want to do a clean install of Lion, wipe your HDD with Disk Utility/Erase then do an internet recovery.

I've done reinstall in place several times with no adverse affects. Fixes a lot of issues. If you do it, just run software update when done. You may have to retweak some system preferences. As always you should have a backup first.
