    Strange slowdown
    I have an odd issue I've never seen before. My 1st generation macbook pro is really slow when I first start the computer. When I say "Really" I mean minutes to open programs. The odd thing about it is that the longer the computer stays on the faster it becomes. I thought zapping the pram would help so I did, 4 times. Then it took several extra minutes for the OS to load and when I opened "mail" that was another 10 minutes. It gets faster over the next few hours and by the time a day rolls by it's almost normal speed.

    Macbook pro 15" 2.16 core 2 duo 10.4.11

    that's really odd :S, i also have a macbook first gen, and never had this problem perhaps a memory problem or something else.
    Hopefully some of the senior guys in this forum have experienced or know something about this strange behavior or for MBP.
