    Your MacBook Pro is slow when you are starting it up from being shut down--not from waking it from sleep, correct? Also if it is slow starting up from being shut down, at what point does it pause? What are you seeing on the screen when it is taking a long time?

    If your Mac takes long time to start up, reasons may be less RAM, too many start up items etc. There might be lots of caches, system junks, duplicate files stores in Mac and it makes your Mac slow down. You can remove all these things from your Mac by using Mac optimizing tool of Stellar.

Hardware. Had a bad spill with a drop? Very unlikely you can have it fixed cheaply, but go to your local mac store and see if you can get it fixed.
