    well... an HDMI cable isn't causing any problems on my machine... i just found out (on a clean ML install) that the tattieboggle Xbox 360 controller driver is causing the slow shutdown in my case.. maybe anyone is using this driver too?

     

    and concerning the timeout editing... im not sure if thats a good idea... lets say, you have opened a document, the program always autosaves on quitting. now.. you edit the timeout setting... the program needs lets say 2 seconds for overwriting the file... you kill the process after 1 second.... what do you think will happen with the half overwritten file?

    Hi,

         i have a slower shut down time with mountain lion too.

     

    I just downloaded  TEXT WRANGLER.

     

    I am a beginner in these matters.

     

    Can someone please in very straight forward terminology explain the process of

     

    using TEXT WRANGLER to modify the file?

     

    Thanks Tom.

    You don't need a text editor.

    Just open a Terminal Window (Launchpad, type "Terminal" in the search field on top of the screen). Click on the Terminal Icon.

     

    type in (better: copy and paste this line):

    sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.securityd ExitTimeOut -int 2

    press Enter

     

    Enter your Password when prompted

     

    type in (better: copy and paste this line):

    sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.coreservices.appleid.authentication ExitTimeOut -int 2

    press Enter

     

    type in (better: copy and paste this line):

    sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder ExitTimeOut -int 2

     

    type in (better: copy and paste this line):

    sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.coreservices.appleevents ExitTimeOut -int 2

    press Enter

     

    After that the shutdown wil be remarkingly shorter.

     

    Regards Olli
