10.8: A fix for slow shutdown times
Authored by: baltwo on Apr 08, '13 05:57:05PM

The solution, if the option is checked, is for Apple to program the OS so it maintains a current state and, when it shuts down, use that. The issue is that the OS is crippled and has to do all that saved state stuff during the shutdown. incidentally, that's what also extends the boot time, along with fscking all mounted volumes from what it is when booting Snow Leopard.

10.8: A fix for slow shutdown times

Are you sure that's how it works? Early on with Lion, the computer hung in the middle of doing something, rebooted, and brought me right back to where I was. It was a one-time thing, though, so it may not reflect the way it typically works.

I know nothing to the contrary. Booting into Lion or ML is painfully slow (a minute or two); whereas, booting into SL takes less than 25 seconds on my 27" i7 iMac w/12 GB RAM.
