Why does my MacBook take 10 min to boot up?
My MacBook worked fine in the beginning, but now it takes 10 min to boot up -- every time. It used to take 4 min to turn on, but since the latest update it now takes 10 min. I cannot shut my lid while the laptop is turned on or else it will need to a hard reboot.
Otherwise, my MacBook works just fine. I've just gotten used to living with the problem. I should be able to open and close the laptop as often as I wish, without having to resort to restarting from scratch. Any suggestions to improve the start-up time?
