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?

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.
