    Ok so the icloud issue isn't really an issue..... But im Still not getting notifications in notification center. And today i spent a lot more time on the computer (rained out!) and had this issue:
    Clicked on safari. Opens up and get the "you are not connected to the internet". Hit the home button. Nothing. Again. Nothing. Exit out. Safari. Nothing. Unplug modem and reset. Safari. Nothing. Then yahoo finally comes up. Surfed around and all seemed fine. Then when i tried to go to a new page - nothing happened. Just kinda hung there. Took a good 5 min to get it to go to another page. Googled the issue and read somewhere to try turning off the wifi if its on. It was so i did. Seemed ok for awhile but then did it again. Turned off mac and few hrs later hubby went on and same thing again :/
    Im guessing its a problem with the upgrade since it never did it before? Any ideas what to do or what it could be? I haven't seen anyone else on here mention it.

    It hangs on "Preparing back-up" for a long time for me now. It always eventually starts, but it'll take ten minutes to get pas the "preparing back-up" phase. I'm using an external drive connected via USB.

    As a side note, I really wish they hadn't killed the ability to back up to non-Time Capsule NAS.
    having the same issue with Time Capsule. "Preparing to backup..." lasts for over an hour and then when back up starts, only backs up 2 to 3 gig out of 234g to back up entire system. i have generation one and generation 3 time capsule. same on both.

    Well, I've been noticing some lag issues and video related problems so I wiped my hard drive and reinstalled Mountain Lion from scratch without having it upgrade over Snow Leopard or Lion and now my MacBook is snappy and glitch-free, thus far. The video issues I was experiencing are also gone. I'm loving it and everything seem to be working as it should be and doing so very quickly.
