My brand new macbook air 13" seems to have a pretty slow shutdown time (20s+).


As I am new to mac I spent several days trying to find a fix without any succes.


After a shutdown I just ran a console search for a exit timeout and found the following:


01/11/13 00:04:38,068[1]: ([261]) Exit timeout elapsed (20 seconds). Killing



I think this might be the problem but I am not sure which terminal command should be used to reduce the killing time.


Could anyone please help me ?

MacBook Air, OS X Mavericks (10.9)
