    MacBook Pro 2.8Ghz, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD
    iBook G4 running extremely slow
    Good evening, all.

    I am new to Macs - been using an iBook for the last three months.

    Anyhow, my iBook, over the last few days, has been going extremely slow - opening applications takes longer than it did a week back. It seems sluggish - if that makes sense. When I reboot it, it takes a long time for it load up.

    My system specs:
    G4 1.42
    1GB Ram
    100 GB HDD

    Is there something I can do/run/check to see what is causing this?

    Thanks in advance!

    - Pete

    What's loading at startup?

    /Library/StartupItems/
    /System/Library/StartupItems/
    System Preferences>Accounts>Login Items

    ***

    Any apps doing logging of any kind? Does this happen when the internet is unplugged? Are you automounting network drives?

    Thanks for the reply!

    in /library/startupitems, I've got one folder:
    Nleac

    in /system/library/startupitems:

    Apache
    AppleShare
    Appservices
    Authserver
    Crashreporter
    Disks
    Fibrechannel
    IFCStart
    IPServices
    Metadata
    NetworkTime
    NFS
    NIS
    Printing Services
    RemotedesktopAgent
    SNMP

    And in system prefs, accounts

    LCCDaemon

    No logging that I know of - it doesn't matter if I am online or not - I do mount a network share, but manually, it's not needed that often.


    Thanks!

    Yeah, I tried that, but no luck.

    Any other ideas?

    Thank!

    Have you run cron jobs?
    If not download a tool like OnyX (Versiontracker.com) and run the maintenance scripts to clear out some old logs etc.
