Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2009 8:36 AM (in response to rhyceudique)NO DOUBT.
OSX 10.6 + Safari problem.
When I upgrade 10.6 from 10.5, I see a big difference on flash player performance under same full screen flash website.
Use another browser would solve the problem.
It doesn't related to new iMac, it is related to the safari, I have lot of mac here have the same problem including MacPro 8core.MacPro 09 8core, iMac 24", MBP 17", MB C2D, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2009 9:47 AM (in response to songallery)The problem is Airport.
If you disable it your are going to see your computer becomes responsive again.
Another quick fix is to put it to sleep and on again. (it disables the Airport that's why it works).
Looks like a simple update will fix this, when available.
PS: I had this problem on my 21' imac and replaced for a brand new one that had the same problem.imac 21, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2009 11:54 AM (in response to drope)I Agree....I think it's Airport as well.
Here is what I do that temporarily fixes the slowness problem:
go to network
copy my dns server
go to airport
click the dns server tab at the top
delete the dns servers listed
paste in the one I copied from the main screen
boom...it's fixed for at least a few minutes. Sometimes longer. Even if its the same number it still works.
Anyone know what kind of fix it would be? It's really irritating to have to do that over and over all day. Although at least SOMETHING works!imac 27"
Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2009 12:25 PM (in response to rhyceudique)I get this same problem with my iMac 24" late 2006 model. It hates flash, but it never used to have a problem. Could this be related?iMac 24", Mac OS X (10.6.1), 2.16 Ghz Inte Core 2 Duo - 3GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2009 12:31 PM (in response to EBFoxbat)like i said.... somebody please try and install Leopard 10.5.6 on the new imac.
it might be something faulty within the Snow Leopard version itself.
if it works with Leopard then its easier to narrow down the issues...MacBook Pro 5,1, Mac OS X (10.6.1), Unibody 2,4GHz
Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2009 1:28 PM (in response to rhyceudique)I've been having the same problem on my 21.5", but I don't see a forum topic for my model. Hopefully it's just an issue with airport, and they'll give us a fix soon.21.5" iMac, 2009. 13" Macbook, 2006., Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2009 5:31 PM (in response to JoMiSan)Nope, I've got a new 27-inch with the 4850 graphics card and my mac is doing the same thing.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2009 5:51 PM (in response to rhyceudique)Well this seems to solve the problem on mine :
- Disable Airport
- In power settings : disable suspend hd activity when possible
After 5 hours of webbrowsing (youtube, etc) + music...
Got over 177 in XBench...
I don't know how long it will last but at least this seems longer that sleep/wake trick...iMac 27", 4670 HD, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2009 5:56 PM (in response to rhyceudique)Success! At least so far. When we changed the DNS servers my YouTube video stuttering went away.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2009 7:21 PM (in response to rhyceudique)So I talked with Apple tech this morning because I was having the same problems. So far, it's not acted up the whole day!! We'll see about tomorrow, but usually it would get unreasonably slow within 4 - 6 hours of use. Here is what Apple tech informed me to do:
Macintosh HD>Library>Startupitems then pull Startupitems to desktop. Then Restart.
If you don't have anything in your Startupitems folder, don't know what to tell you, but this did it for me.

no Apple does not monitor these boards. which is why folks need to contact them via AppleCare, the genius bar etc. have details of what is happening, what you tried. be specific.
If you have a technical problem, contact AppleCare - all new Apple products (including operating systems) come with 90 days of free telephone support.Quad 2.5 GHz G5, 5 GB | 15" 2.6 GHz MBP Penryn, 4 GB | 1 TB Dual-Band TC, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
