    Ok Pete and Daddy just calm down. You are both trying to help and it is appreciated greatly. Thank you.


    FWIW, I am discussinh a mid 2009 MBP 15" and Late 2011 MBP 13" and an Early 2010 MB. Sorry, actually the Early 2010 MB is running Snow Leopard.


    Look don't anyone get the wrong idea here I am willing to push through, but at some point, we have to get our work done without major issue.


    The whole reason we switched out to macs and OS X is we I did not want to spend time fixing computers and software which I did when I handled the servers on windows and workstations. This was very successful on Snow Leopard but Mountain lion I am exhausted traveling troubling everyones problems on 4 machines while I am supoos to be running the business. When we are more profitable, I'll hire a 75K a year iT person to handle it and probably never learn of another computer problem. Just in case you wanted to know...

    Start your own thread. Your problems have nothing to do with the op's and will only cause confusion here.



    Yep, happens every time, unfortunately. Your issues got lost amongst the threadjumpers.


    Good Luck

    I agree completely with Tikitman. I installed Mountain Lion and I have had continuous problems since. I am very sorry that I made that big mistake. On top of that, once you installed Mountain Lion you can not go back to Snow Leopard unles you erase everything in your computer. Apple should have arranged for us users to be able to switch from one sytem to the other without complicating our existence. If Apple change that policy I will continue with Mac if not, I will be forced to abandoned it. Note: I have been a Mac user since 1982, always happy with Mac till I installed Maclion.

    I have had great success with a late 2009 Macbook running Mountain Lion upon following the steps detailed in this post:

    I don't know how you found this but it works for me. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Hi Jack,


    I'm really pleased to learn that this has made a difference for you.  Anecdotally, I'm coming across people who are unhappy with 10.8.X performance (and talking about how great 10.6 was in comparison).  In my experience, however, once this (aggressive) power management 'feature' is disabled, the performance seems comparable.


    Perhaps this idea of the kernel 'stealing' CPU time makes sense from the point of view of keeping machines cool, but the implementation seems flawed if the user experience is turning to 'treacle'.


    Thanks for the feedback.


    With Thanks,


    Patrick Rynhart

    Hey guys,


    I just installed OS X 10.8 on my late Mackbook 2009 and I have few issues. As first is really slow, second programs takes ages to load and as final I cannot install Skype it get frozen :-/. I might guess cause I only have 2gb on Ram or could be another issues?


    Thanks in advance for your help.
