- How can I diagnose a slow mac? 1 answer
I am using OSX 10.7.5 and my OSX is becoming a bit unresponsive, comparing to what it was like before. Sometimes just opening new window of browser or terminal takes few seconds or the Dock hovering effect is not fluent. At these moments I watch system resources and I still have 3G of memory free and the processor is not used at all. Can it be caused by hard drive or other IO? How can I found out which application is causing this?
