    I'm wondering if anyone can help solve an annoyance of mine: I bought a new rMBP back in February (13", 2.8 ghz i5, 8 GB RAM, 500 GB SSD), and noticed a while back that shutting down the Mac takes about 30 seconds - much slower than normal. This happened around the time I installed Adobe CS programs, but even after I deleted the programs, the laptop still takes a while to shut down. Since then, I also configured my laptop to encrypt my hard drive, but this has not slowed down the laptop any more than I was already experiencing.

    Since I upgraded to 10.10.3 last week, I notice that boot up times have slowed down, too. I get a black screen for 15-20 seconds, and then the Apple logo pops up before fading into my login screen.

    Does anyone have ideas as to what's causing this, and how to fix it? I loved how fast this thing booted up and shut down when I first got it, and it's frustrating to see how slow it's gotten. I should also point out that I only use up about 100 GB of the hard drive.

    Thanks!

    Every new Mac comes with 90 days of phone support; therefore, I would suggest you call Apple and have them assist you. They have very good customer service, and you are paying for this in the purchase price. This is also the safest solution.

    I have also noticed the slow boot up on my mid 2014 that I purchased this Feb. I believe it's related to the new update 10.10.3.

    I haven't noticed any change after the update. Curious if you migrated when you bought it. I had to downsize so I couldn't migrate. I'm glad now that I didn't as it gave me a smaller and cleaner setup.
