I have Aperture 3+ and plenty of RAM and space on drive = I just opened Aperture to work on some photos and noticed it was sluggish.  Even if I just sat here and did nothing.  I opened up Activity and it says - "Updating Library and it seems to be processing images in various albums in Aperture and with MobileMe - however, I do NOT have any such selected = I do not have MobileMe or Flickr selected to be processed or synched = I do not have PhotoStrea enabled.


I turned off the auto update for both MobileMe and Flickr months ago = and never did turn on PhotoStream.  Watching the Activity window I think it's finishing up but I just don't want it to do it at all.  Any thoughts??

MacPro, MBPro, MBAir & Aperture3, Mac OS X (10.7.2), iPad and iPhone4

    did you also remove your MobileMe account from the Web-Panel in the Aperture preferences? I found that after signing in to Mobile Me this was added automatically in Aperture again, after I had removed it previously.


    If your account shows there, remove it; also uncheck: automatically check for published albums.

    You are welcome.

    Please let us know, if removing the account will stop that behaviour.
