OS Maverick very slow after time capsule backup

Time capsule completes incremental backup and Maverick OS slows to snails pace, constant kaleidoscope ball running, apps won't open,close or respond, only solution is a re-boot then all is fine again - switched off time capsule to check and system runs fine, switch time capsule on again and system goes into snail mode after backup completes.

Use the App "Activity Monitor" to see what process is driving hard. if not already open: open the activity monitor window. Click the CPU% tab and show highest percentages at the top (should be an upside down triangle) may have to click the CPU% twice to do this. now the Activity monitor is showing you what processes are eating up your computers power. Google the process/es . It may be indexing the drive, which can take a long time. there are other processes too, that you should just let it do. once they are done, then things should be good. Such is the case for me when I upgraded to Mavericks.

SOURCE: My apple time capsule has a yellow flashing light

Hi Sorry to hear you're having trouble,
There have been some recent updates for the Airport and Time Capsule product line.
One of the many features of these products is that when an update is available, the green light turns amber ( a little weaker than the error yellow color )
Try connecting to is and see if it is awaiting an update..
Usually, the error yellow indicates a problem that would either prevent it from operating properly or that your network is unacceptably exposed to the outside internet.

is your hard drive full?  if it is clean it out.  How much ram do you have...max it out.  This is an old machine and it's not very fast..it hasn't been made in four years or more.

SOURCE: torrent files are saved on my hard drive but

These files are usually contained in the temporary internet file's solder. For opening, go to Run and type %temp% and enter. A folder will come up showing all internet files. Delete all and reboot the Mac. This will speed it up. Don't worry, temporary internet files are not useful. they can be retained when you get something from internet. When you download, the files from internet will be downloaded with some accompanying temporary files. Delete them after the download is complete. After downloading, they are completely loss of Space on Desktops.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

SOURCE: Slow running mac

There are a number of reasons that may causing a Mac computer running slow, but generally two factors: hardware part & system part. For hardware part: I guess it's OK if your Mac is not that old. For system part: there might be a lot of junk files, caches, registry errors... about 80% slow Mac caused by this reason, if so, try cleaning the system.

Why is the motor of my sears kenmore sewing machine model 385.12714 running really slow? The machine has not been used for at least a year or two. We oiled it. It is sewing, but at a snail's pace.


it could be different things
have you checked to make sure the plug is correctly in the machine
one time I was sewing on my necchi electronic machine & it for some reason was going slow like you mentioned & so I started checking different thing & found the cord to the foot pedal was laying in side the foot pedal & it couldn't go any faster untill I moved the cord out of the way
it could also be the motor
& also the power cord & foot pedal
it's possible it needs to be serviced since it's been sitting up so long & since it's sewing at a snails pace

Very slow. It starts off fast then almost instantly slows down to a snails pace.


The highest the selected resolution, the slowest is the scanning. Lower the resolution to 200 or 150dpi.

How do I start the cooker on low?


The manual says "When your corningware slow cooker is initially plugged into a wall outlet, the display will show"0". This display indicates the programmed number of hours for which a meal will cook.

The slow cooker can be programmed in one hour increments from 1 to 10 on your digital display. The number of hours may be selected by pushing the COOK TIME button until the desired cooking time appears.

If 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 hours are selected, then the slow cooker will operate on HIGH setting. If 7,8,9 or 10 hours are selected, then the slow cooker will operate on the low setting.

To start the cooking cycle press the ON/OFF button. To interrupt the cooking cycle at anytime, press the ON/OFF button. If the ON/OFF button is pressed when the digital display shows "0", then the slow cooker will automatically start on the WARM setting.

When the full cooking cycle is complete, your corningware slow cooker will automatically switch to the warm setting, to keep food at a warm serving temperature."

If, after you plug the slow cooker into the outlet, the COOK TIME button does not work, unplug the cooker, hold both ON/OFF and COOK TIME buttons down, plug into wall socket and wait till the display flashes. Release both buttons and the slow cooker buttons should both work.
