Macbook pro very slow to boot and wont wake up from sleep

Hi all,

I've been trying to troubleshoot this problem for about a week now and all my attempts have been to no avail. I have reset the pram, pmu, repaired disk permissions, repaired disk, changed memory and battery and my macbook pro 2.4ghz C2D running OSX Version 2.5.6 still takes approximately 6 minutes to boot, and won't awake from sleep. These were not gradual changes either...one day it was working perfectly, the next I'm having these problems and it hasn't let up since.

The boot issue - it remains on the blue screen after the apple spinner for aaages. Here is my most recent boot log in the hopes that some wise folk on here may be able to troubleshoot this for me

FYI - I've also tried starting up without Airport/bluetooth enabled and this doesn't change anything either.

With regard to the sleep issue I've tried changing the pmset hibernate mode to 0 and removing the sleep image, and changing it back to mode 3 which also didn't resolve the problem. I've noticed the snoring led doesn't light up anymore when going into "sleep mode".

So if anyone can shed any light on how to go about resolving this problem it'd be greatly appreciated.

regarding it not being able to wake from sleep - will it not turn on after you open the lid, (the latch light should change to solid from the 'winking' or pulsing) or will it wake from sleep electrically but take forever/not be able to load the OS.

If it is the latter I think you have a drive issue. You should run the manufacturer diag on it. If it is that it won't wake the screen, send power/signals to the components, you may have a problematic power circuit. I think an Apple tech would tell you it's a bad logic board, which it might be, but if it's not the drive I would recommend the power board next.

When I set it to sleep the latch light just goes on and stays on i.e. it doesn't pulsate as it used to. And when I try to re-awaken it, nothing happens, just a black screen and the latch light stays on. I have to hold the power button down to turn it off and turn it back on again.

The most recent apple update 10.5.7. hasn't changed anything either. I'm guessing it's worth getting Apple to look at it? I've been putting this off as I really need my macbook for work, but it's looking as if it going to have to be done. Does anyone know of any other avenues I should explore before I ring up Apple?

I think there have been a couple of firmware updates for the MBP that have dealt with waking from sleep - have you applied all of these updates? when you download them via system preferences you actually have to apply them manually - they don't automatically install themselves.

sorry - i meant when u download them from software update...

apple menu -> software update. Let it run and it will give you a list of updates to Apple recommends you download and install. If you have already downloaded and installed 10.5.7 then I guess you would have also downloaded everything else (including any available firmware updates). If so, the firmware update should prompt you on the next restart. If not, I think the firmware update programs are stored in /Applications/Utilities and are named something like Apple efi firmware updater or Apple keyboard firmware updater.

If there is nothing then it probably means your system is fully patched, although you can also check manually on apple.com/downloads for individual firmware updates. If the problem still persists then it may be worth checking it into Apple for a look, but remember to back up all data before you give it in as Apple don't guarantee your data's integrity.

Macbook Pro Slow to boot up and will not wake from Sleep

Hey Damien.

My computer is having the EXACT same symptoms as yours. It was working fine until one day I opened it and it took forever to boot... and would not wake from sleep... the light would stay lit if I closed the lid... etc..

Im wondering if you were enlightened by the mac people since my two year warranty is up... Ive been digging and digging on this issue and have found a couple things.. Most people with this problem seem to be running Pro Tools or Audio Software.. and or Adobe Software..

I see a common culprit for the slow start up is PACESupport.plist which will show its self user side but not System side on Library/LaunchDaemons

Anything you could offer would be great.. Im seriously racked on this issue

-Thanks
