    Start your own thread. Your problems have nothing to do with the op's and will only cause confusion here.



    Yep, happens every time, unfortunately. Your issues got lost amongst the threadjumpers.


    Good Luck

    I agree completely with Tikitman. I installed Mountain Lion and I have had continuous problems since. I am very sorry that I made that big mistake. On top of that, once you installed Mountain Lion you can not go back to Snow Leopard unles you erase everything in your computer. Apple should have arranged for us users to be able to switch from one sytem to the other without complicating our existence. If Apple change that policy I will continue with Mac if not, I will be forced to abandoned it. Note: I have been a Mac user since 1982, always happy with Mac till I installed Maclion.

    I have had great success with a late 2009 Macbook running Mountain Lion upon following the steps detailed in this post:

    Hi Jack,


    I'm really pleased to learn that this has made a difference for you.  Anecdotally, I'm coming across people who are unhappy with 10.8.X performance (and talking about how great 10.6 was in comparison).  In my experience, however, once this (aggressive) power management 'feature' is disabled, the performance seems comparable.


    Perhaps this idea of the kernel 'stealing' CPU time makes sense from the point of view of keeping machines cool, but the implementation seems flawed if the user experience is turning to 'treacle'.


    Thanks for the feedback.


    With Thanks,


    Patrick Rynhart

    Hey guys,


    I just installed OS X 10.8 on my late Mackbook 2009 and I have few issues. As first is really slow, second programs takes ages to load and as final I cannot install Skype it get frozen :-/. I might guess cause I only have 2gb on Ram or could be another issues?


    Thanks in advance for your help.
