My wifes Macbook Pro has slowed down a lot. Its not just programs but the whole system. The best way I can describe is is that its in slow motion. when i minimize or maximize programs (firefox, safari, disk utility, iTunes, etc) it goes in slow motion going to the dock or back to the desktop. when clicking options on the toolbar that requires more options to slide out it takes about 2-3 seconds. I checked activity monitor and nothing seems out of the ordinary. processes like safariand itunes use about 4-7% cpu. I have 1GB of ram and it says 454MB are free. Typing is slow also.

I ran verify disk and check permissions and it says everything is ok.

We have Leopard with all the updates. The only difference is that we are connected to her moms wireless network and we installed logmein.
