This is just a general question: my 17" iMac seems to run a little slower these days than it used to. It's not a problem and it might even be my imagination. But is there anything that should be done periodically to keep the speed tiptop? I run Disk Utilities Repair Permissions now and then as well as virus scans, but I can't find any mention of tasks like de-fragmenting. The disc is an 80 GB with about 16 GB left free (though until the other day it had never had less than 45GB free - I've been loading a few video clips in). Does the OS automatically take care of stuff like de-fragging?

As ever, any help or advice gratefully received.

17" iMac PowerPC G4, Mac OS X (10.3.9)
