Great day in the morning!
I’m a happy camper today. I don’t reboot my Hackintosh often but when I do, I’m treated to a 4+ minute process while all of my startup applications load.
Around two years ago, I had an epiphany of sorts. It went something like this – “I don’t need everyone of these Startup and Login items immediately when I begin using my Mac. It’d be really great if there was an application that would take all of those startup programs and stagger them out so they don’t all load at once.”
I looked around and couldn’t find any. I used to write code but family and life doesn’t really afford me the extra time to write stuff.
So, I continued to suffer in silence knowing that I would endure long boot times on my Mac until a solution comes along.
Today, I’ve found the solution.
It’s in an application called Delay Start. It does exactly what I described above. It takes your startup items and allows you to place a delay on each one of them. The benefit is that they aren’t all trying to hog I/O resources when your Mac is still in the process of booting up.
