    By disabling the Sync Services within Outlook 2011 and rebooting, shutdown times returned to normal.

    Unfortunately the CONSOLE logs got filled up  with:<Error>: AceConnection - Couldn't read anything through read! the os lied to us ;_;

    Before I got a bit more comfortable with Terminal I used to use Onyx to run the daily/weekly/monthly scrips on my Mac, and clear out caches etc.  I then just used it to clear out the Trash when there was something that wouldn't clear using the normal menthods.  Since I got 10.8 I just haven't bothered to install it.

     

    Back on track, after using various "fixes" that seemed to work for a while, I spotted the hint about clearing out and then locking the Saved Application State folder.  We are 3 reboots down the line now and all seems fine, but time will tell.

    That´s (probably) a good idea- so far it works for me.

    But: Sometimes the Menubar is hidden until starting an Application (e.g. Safari).

  • firesidefromellenville Level 1 Level 1 (10 points)

    3 reboots resulted in a quick shut down, and you can guess what is coming next....... the 4th shut down resulted in the slow, with cartwheel, shut down.  I have a feeling that this issue won't be resolved until they release 10.8.3

    That's exactly what I have come to terms with... every troubleshooting step proves to be a temporary respite. I guess since we all have upgraded to ML; we will also have to live with this as well.

     

    Apple Support also gave up & advised Clean Install as the last & only resort.

    "Apple Support also gave up & advised Clean Install as the last & only resort"

    waste of time, no luck will clean re-install.. it's a software problem, and soon it should be fixed.

    let's hope so)

  • Scott Newman Level 2 Level 2 (220 points)

    Yep...same here.  I've tried everything suggested in this thread.  Several times it appeared that what I did was successful, but after two or three restarts, the "fixes" stopped working.  I also did a new clean install.  No luck.

    Thanks for your input guys; will wait & defer Clean Install for now.

     

    BTW, has anyone used CCleaner to delete temp system files, like from Applications, iTunes or Cache?

  • firesidefromellenville Level 1 Level 1 (10 points)

    I guess we are just going to have to iive with this problem for a while.  It would appear that something in 10.8.2 created this problem as prior to the update I didn't have a problem. 

  • DhruvC Level 1 Level 1 (80 points)

    Me neither found too much issues with battery backup or shutdown on 10.8.1.

     

    Have you gone with the 10.8.2 Supplement Update? Any better?

  • pjbmil Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Yes it's related to 10.8.2 update.

    I found this in logs (verbose mode):

    =======

    com.apple.coreservices.appleevents 57        Exit timeout elapsed (20 seconds). Killing

    com.apple.coreservices.appleevents 57        Sent SIGKILL signal

    ========

    Killing "appleeventsd" before shutdown it takes 2/3 sec instead 20 sec.

    Hope Apple will fix it asap

  • thomasfromkoetzingue Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    You're right.
    Killing that process do solves the slow shutdown.
    But it's not THE fix.

     

     

    Hope that Apple will fix it ASAP!

  • francisco1987 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I tried uninstalling all of java and also updated to supplement update and it fixed the slow shutdown for me.

  • jepalan Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    For what it is worth, I have been troubleshooting slow shutdown on my MBA 2012 w/ OS X ML 10.8.2. 

     

    My shutdown had gone from 2 secs to over 20 secs.

     

    I tracked this down to the googlesoftwareupdat daemon that got installed with Google Drive.

     

    After uninstalling Google Drive, I followed these instructions:

    http://support.google.com/installer/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=100386

     

    I am back to instant shutdown now!  Not sure if this applies to you, but good luck.

    As mentioned before, removing nearly all Items

    (just leaving the "com.apple.finder.savedState" untouched)

    inside the "Saved Application State" Folder

    and making it "protected" solved this Issue (for me).
