The Efficient Mac User 11 Ways to Optimize Your Mac's Performance Ed Eubanks Jr - 2007.03.12 - Tip Jar Follow Ed Eubanks Jr onTwitter. Follow Low End Mac on Twitter. Popularity: Short link: http://bit.ly/Gw070 9 Bookmark in del.icio.us Every now and then, my Macs begin to feel a little sluggish. There are many potential reasons why: I tend to run 8 to 10 applications all the time - and sometimes push 15 or more. This alone will bog down any Mac. At other times, I realize that it's been weeks since I restarted the computer,and a simple restart will solve a lot of these woes. When those don't speed things up, I've found a number of things I can do to encourage my Macs back to their youthful snappiness. Here are a few tips I've found for restoring my Macs to full speed without spending a penny. Editor's note: None of these tips will improve your Mac's performance as much as more RAM, a faster hard drive, or a CPUupgrade can. They mostly have to do with reducing memory use by limiting the number of active processes and freeing up drive space, since a too full drive (especially past the 90% mark) can slow down your Mac. These are tips for getting the most out of the Mac you currently have without investing in hardware upgrades. dk 1. Clean out Startup Items Some applications automatically (or when asked) setthemselves as a "startup item", which causes them to open at every restart or login. You can find out what is in your startup items list by navigating to Apple Menu > System Preferences > Accounts > Login Items. You may be surprised at how many there are. To remove them, simply select the item by clicking on its name and then hit the "minus" button at the bottom of the list. However, be sure thatyou know what you're removing; otherwise you may kill some critical function for the next time you restart. 2. Turn off Universal Access, Bluetooth, Speech Recognition, and Internet Sharing if you don't use them While System Preferences is open, take a look at a few other things. Apple has generously included a number of very useful features as preferences. Some, however, may not be useful to you,such as Universal Access (which offers help for visually and hearing impaired users) or Bluetooth (which allows certain devices to be used wirelessly). If you don't use these features, verify that they are turned off. This will save you some valuable RAM and processor resources. 3. Clean Out 'Other' System Preferences Don't close System Preferences yet! Take a peek in the bottom section of yourSystem Preferences window, labeled "Other". How many items are down there? Do you know what they do? Do you use what they do? If there is a Preference Pane that you don't use or that you use only occasionally, disable it (either turn it "off" within the Preference Pane itself or remove it from the folder "~/Library/PreferencePanes"). 4. Check out what 'build' your software is If you're running anIntel Mac, some of your software may be running under the "Rosetta" translator, which allows applications built for a PowerPC processor to run on an Intel chip. Rosetta is surprisingly efficient, but don't use it if you don't have to! There may be a patch for your favorite application that will upgrade it to a "universal build". By making sure you're running the latest version you can be confident...
