Macbook Pro Running Slow? Here’s How To Fix Your Mac Now!

810 Flares 810 Flares ×

Any Apple computer will start to slow down over time. The most powerful computers of yesterday sometimes can’t hold up in the modern world. Every computer will slow down, but there are steps you can take to help make your computer as fast as the day you bought it.

We’ve compiled some simple but effective tips that will help you speed up your MacBook Pro so you can enjoy a fast and smooth computing experience.

Is your Macbook Pro running slow? Here are some things to try:

1. Use programs to speed up your older Mac computer

Programs like CleanMyMac 3 can instantly trim down a bloated hard disk and free up several GBs of hard disk space in just a few minutes. You’re able to diagnose and fix problems with just a few clicks. Some users have reported a 45% to 60% speed increase after running the program.

CleanMyMac 3 is available for a free download here.

CleanMyMac 3 is the winner of several prestigious awards, including About.com’s Reader’s Choice Award. It’s a system maintenance program that can help clean up the junk that builds up over time on your computer– CleanMyMac 3 gives you a great way to schedule maintenance on your MacBook, keeping everything running smoothly.

How CleanMyMac 3 can speed up my slow MacBook Pro and other slow Macs?

  • Frees up hard disk space to dramatically improve system performance
  • Uninstalls programs and apps that you never use
  • Cleans out your startup folder, resulting in faster boot times
  • Cleans up your iPhoto folders, removing photo duplicates and other junk files
  • Helps you to free up disk space by deleting old files that you never use
  • Deletes system junk, cache junk, languages and binary junk that can all lead to a faster running MacBook Pro

Not only will CleanMyMac 3 allow you to speed up your MacBook Pro, it can also be used as highly efficient and intuitive maintenance solution to ensure that your computer lasts for as long as possible.

2. Hardware upgrades

Hardware upgrades, though quite expensive, can be the best way to fix a slow Mac. Software tweaks and changes can make a big difference, but sometimes this isn’t enough. Upgrading system hardware can lead to significant performance improvements– check out our guides on RAM for your MacBook Pro or an SSD for your MacBook Pro.

You’re looking at a max of about $150-$200 for an extra 8 GB of RAM and a max of about $300 – $400 (They go on sale fairly often!) for a 1 TB SSD upgrade, both of which can significantly improve your MacBook Pro’s performance levels.

Both components can be very worthwhile upgrades. Your computer’s hard drive is often the slowest component, so an SSD will make a huge difference in boot times and program launch speeds. Check your average RAM usage before buying an upgrade– if you aren’t using a lot of RAM than buying more won’t speed up your computer.

Go for the upgrades if you have room in your budget– especially if you’re looking to get an SSD. There simply is no better way to speed up your MacBook Pro. Here’s a good Lifehacker article that talks about what all can be upgraded on your MacBook Pro.

3. Resetting the System Management Controller

Every MacBook Pro has a piece of hardware called the  “System Management Controller”. Most people have never even heard of it! Running a reset of this controller can return your Mac to previous levels of performance.

The System Management Controller is a computer component that coordinates battery and heat management, LED lights, and other parts of the hardware. Resetting the SMC allows you to re-balance all of these factors and have your computer running

Don’t worry, resetting this controller will not harm your Mac in any way. This won’t delete your content or user settings. It just resets the hardware to its original state help your computer run more smoothly.

How do you reset your MacBook Pro’s System Management Controller?

  • Turn off your MacBook Pro
  • Plug in your MacBook Pro’s power cord into the wall socket
  • Now, hold down the Left Shift + Option + Control + Power Button, simultaneously, for 10 seconds
  • When you do the above, your Mac won’t power on but a reset will be registered
  • Release all keys after 10 seconds and turn on and run your MacBook Pro like you normally do
  • Your MacBook Pro’s slow performance should be fixed!

Please note that when doing this, your MacBook Pro should not turn on. If it turns on, you probably didn’t press one of the keys properly. Do it again until you are able to press down all mentioned keys for 10 seconds without powering up your MacBook Pro.

4. PRAM Reset (Updated on 7, April 2015)

Just like the SMC reset ,resetting the PRAM (Parameter RAM) has also helped quite a few Macbook owners fix problems on their MacBook Pro, putting an end to their computer problems.

Resetting your PRAM will not delete the data on your hard drive– the only things you might have to restore after carrying out this reset are system preferences like time, date, and mouse settings. This shouldn’t take too long.

How do I reset my PRAM?

  • Shut down your MacBook Pro
  • Press the power button
  • Press Command + Option + P + R in combination, all at the same time, before you see the grey startup screen
  • Press and hold until your MacBook Pro restarts
  • Release the keys when you hear the familiar startup chime sound that your MacBook Pro makes when it starts up
  • Your PRAM reset should be complete

5. Try some Apps

This is less of a way to speed up your Mac, and more of a way to speed up your workflow. Here are some good picks:

Wunderlist is a fairly simple, yet extremely helpful, list-keeping app available for Mac, iPad, and iPhone. It’s a great way to keep your life organized– grocery lists, to-do lists, bucket lists, or anything else you might need. Set up all-inclusive to-do lists and you’ll never forget a portion of a big project again. Any.Do is another good option with similar functionality.

Pomodoro One is an app that uses something called the “Pomodoro Method” to help boost your productivity. The Pomodoro Method is the idea of working in 25-minute bursts with short breaks in between spurts of working. Pomodoro One handles everything for you, and you should see a boost in your productivity after you start using the app.

Focusbar helps you pay attention to the task at hand. Today’s world is one of constant distraction with emails, texts, notifications, and funny cat videos to keep you occupied. Simply type in your task at hand into Focusbar and it’ll gently remind you to stay on task whenever you procrastinate with Facebook or YouTube. This is a great way to help you tune out all distractions and get your work done as quickly as possible.

6. Check for Power Hungry Apps

Sometimes it’s not your computer’s fault– you might be using programs that eat up too many system resources. There’s a way to check for these offenders.

To check if your MacBook is being affected by such apps, try this:

  • Go to the Applications Folder
  • Select Utilities
  • Select Activity Monitor
  • Select the CPU tab, shown at the bottom
  • Check the % Idle statistic
  • If your % Idle statistic is always less than 60% or 50%, some of the apps you are using are using up way too much memory than what is normal
  • Check the list of active apps to see which apps are the culprits, the culprits that are slowing down your MacBook Pro
  • Uninstall thise apps. If you need the apps, look for an alternative apps that are more compatible to run on your MacBook Pro. You can also try re-installing that app to see if it will consume less resources after a re-install


7. De-Clutter Your Desktop

Searching through a cluttered desktop can be a nightmare. Having a ton of icons doesn’t harm your computer’s performance, but it makes it much more difficult to organize your work. Looking at a disheveled desktop when you launch your computer can start your workday on a stressed-out note.

Try to limit your desktop to around 10 or 15 icons. As for all the remaining ones, try to organize them into folders or keep files within the computer’s filesystem.

    I had no idea that there was something called a system management controller in my MacBook Pro! And yes, resetting it made a huge difference!

  2. Maciek

    Resetting the SMC on Mac portables with a battery you can remove

    I’m not sure if you’re right. That’s the official instruction:
    Note: Learn about removing the battery on MacBook and MacBook Pro.
    Shut down the computer.
    Disconnect the MagSafe power adapter from the computer, if it’s connected.
    Remove the battery.
    Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
    Release the power button.
    Reconnect the battery and MagSafe power adapter.
    Press the power button to turn on the computer.

    Wow, the cleanup software really helped. Turns out my MacBook’s hard drive had just 248 MG of hard disk space left. The software freed up 17 GB of junk. Incredible. Made all the difference to both booting and browsing speeds. I use my MacBook to just browse!

    No wonder this post got shared on Prismatic :) Kudos – Keep it coming!

  4. DC

    Early indications are that reseting the SMC has made a noticable difference.
    Thank you for this tip.

  5. Michelle Smith

    Great! Glad to have helped in some small way :)

  6. a.yk

    the shift control option power does work! thanks

  7. Renee

    Thanks! Was helpful.

  8. TheFultons

    smc reset is an awesome way to boot performance on your MacBook Pro. I usually end up using it at least once a month and it always seems to do the trick….have to try clean my mac yet..

  9. Rob

    Thank you… your material is succinct and very fast/easy to perform… my MacBook Pro is running much better now :-)

  10. dave

    I did all you said but using the power button because mine broke.its still so slow (using my iphone). it just drastically reduced itself out of nowhere yesterday. I bought my computer new and didn’t come w a disc. updated to mavericks.all my data is backed up. but I use my computer 10 hours a day and sending it off to be fixed would affect me greatly.anything else I can do? can I reset it wo a disc? thanks

  11. Michelle Smith

    Hi Dave. It sounds like your Mac badly needs a SMC reset for which the power button will have to work. Is there someone savvy enough to get the power button working. If that could happen, you could try the SMC reset and I have a feeling it will help.

    Also, how much hard disk space do you have? If it isn’t a lot, you must try clearing it up as added free disk space can make a big difference to performance levels.

  12. vern

    Thank for the info , kit has helped me. Vern

  13. Lizzy

    Thank you for the information. I reset the system management controller. It seems to be helping but I haven’t had enough time to know for sure. I did declutter my desktop. I already knew that was a bad thing to do and it wasn’t that bad, but it’s much better. I still think my MBP is running too slowly though, but better than it was. Frustrating!

  14. Michelle Smith

    Hi Lizzy

    Did you try the PRAM reset as well? Also, how much free disk space do you have on your MacBook pro? A full hard disk can also really slow down your MacBook’s performance, even if it is a SSD!

  15. Iqbal Kabir

    Thanks for this useful article. SMC reset worked like a magic to speed-up my MacBook Pro.

  16. Stephanie Francisco

    Hi, I tried to do everything but it’s still running slow. Also, my idle statistic are always 80-90%. I’m getting frustrated because I really don’t know what to do anymore. My laptop is only 1 year and a couple months old.

  17. Michelle Smith

    Hi Stephanie. Sorry to hear that. Can you tell us what specifically your MacBook Pro is doing wrong? Booting up slowly, not being able to multitask or maybe just hanging up all the time?

    If you are more specific, we can maybe try to help you with some fixes. Can you also go to our site’s search bar and type in Apple Diagnostics and then go to the post that mentions it. There, you will find instructions on how to do a hardware test. I suspect that some hardware component might have failed in your MBP

  18. Stephanie Francisco

    It just keeps on hanging up. Like even if I type something, I need to wait for a minute before it appears.

  19. Michelle Smith

    Wow, that is really bad. I would try the SMC and PRAM resets again. Are you sure they worked the first time around? If the resets don’t fix it, I think you might need to take it to a service station. It could be that your hard drive is corrupted or damaged as well.

  20. Luis

    Hi Michelle, this is my first time here! Thanks for all of your tips.

    I’m pretty sure I have my macbook pro cpu’s damaged, due to overheating. I have already cleaned up my fans and solved the overheating problem, but the problems remain. Upgraded my OS, run apple hardware test (nothing came up) and everything is still the same. I can not even watch a movie here. a lot of bumps, the image stops while sound keeps on going, non-responding programs, etc.

    My question is: is there anyway to repair my cpu or do i need to buy a new one? If I buy a new one (don’t want to :/), what can I do with the current one? It’s a Macbook Pro 15″ early 2011, 2.2GHz Intel Core i7, 4 GB memory, etc. This mac was supposed to last for a long time and i’ll be really sad if it’s just garbage.

    Thanks in advance!

  21. Michelle Smith

    Hi Luis. Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, there is no way to safely replace or upgrade just your MacBook Pro’s CPU or motherboard as these are soldered on during manufacturing. If someone were really technically savvy, they could probably replace it with a newer CPU for you although I doubt if they will give you any sort of guarantee that the fix will work. If anything, it will be a trial and error fix. Are you sure that your hard disk is OK? Can you run Verify Disk by running disk utility. To run it, please use Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility -> Select Your Hard Disk -> First Aid (On the left hand side menu) -> Verify Disk.

    If that program finds errors, it will also help you repair those errors. Please give it a shot and see if it fixes your MacBook Pro.

    P.S. – You will see that the repair disk option will not be available if your disk has OS X installed and running on it. However, you can still repair your OS X disk by doing the following.

    1. Restart your MacBook Pro
    2. As soon as your MacBook Pro begins to restart, hold down Command + R at the same time (In some model MacBook Pros, you might have to hold down the Option key as well)
    3. Choose “Recovery HD” from the menu that will pop up
    4. Choose the OS X hard disk that disk utility found errors in
    5. Click on Repair Disk
    6. Finish the repair and continue to boot your MacBook Pro
    7. Hope for the best!

  22. Luis

    Thank you for your quick answer, Michelle. I’ve already ran all kind of tests that Apple offers. Minimal errors were found and fixed, but nothing important.

    Guess I don’t have another option but to buy a new mac. Although, I’ve already been told that the new MBP retina also have the overheating problem. Can you confirm that? I’m a journalist, so I use my mac for editing, etc. I use ‘heavy’ programs, such as final cut, photoshops, etc. Overheating is not welcome :)

    Thanks a lot again!

  23. Michelle Smith

    Hi Luis. Yes, we are seeing many people reporting overheating problems on their retina display MacBook Pros over the past few months. It looks like the high power resolution combined with the heavy workload you require from your MBP is just a bit too much for it to handle. Before you buy a new Mac, we would however recommend that you try a high quality laptop cooling fan to see if it can be good enough to keep temperatures down, even when you have Final Cut and other types of graphic editing software running at full tilt.

  24. Esther Bezalel

    Hi Michelle, I will just do the SMC reset. But my idle was between 80-90%, how can I fix that?

  25. Michelle Smith

    Hi Esther

    If your idle is high, it means your processor has a lot of bandwidth available. That shouldn’t be a problem. Is your MBP still slow after the SMC reset?

    What problems are you exactly facing?

  26. Lance Frazer

    Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for the post. I went through the steps listed, and everything is A-OK when my computer is NOT plugged in. Weirdly enough, when I plug it in, my MacBook is rendered useless. The touchpad becomes pretty much unresponsive as my mouse is jumping all over the screen. Really not sure what to do here. Any ideas?

    Lance

  27. Michelle Smith

    Hi Lance. That is a very unusual problem indeed! From what I know, your type of problem only occurs when your charger is faulty. If you have more than one MacBook or if you can borrow your friend’s MacBook charger for a day, swap it with your old charger and see if the problem persists.

    I have a feeling that your charger is the problem and can be pretty easily fixed!

  28. kiran

    Hi Michelle,
    Thank you for the information. Tried the SMC reset; but the laptop would start within 10 seconds; and it takes a very long time to start and gets stuck with the opening screen. Can you tell me how to fix this problem?
    Thank you,
    Kiran.

  29. Michelle Smith

    Hi Kiran. Sorry to hear about your problem. It sounds like your OS X may be corrupted. Can you try booting your MacBook in safe mode? Power off your Mac and then power it on again. After you hear the startup beep, press and hold down shift. When you see a grey Apple logo, release the shift key and allow your Mac to boot up in safe mode.

    Once inside, run Disk Utility and run repair disk permissions on your OS X partition. Hopefully, after it is done, you shouldn’t have any problems with your Mac.

  30. Andrew Watts

    Usually we think that deleting duplicate, junk and caches files will speedup the Mac but don’t wipe disk space by doing this. Use Activity Monitor, hard drive sleep mode and hardware issues for slow speed problems. Apart from checking these, if speed can not accelerate then there are many efficient tool like Stellar Drive Defrag, iDefrag etc. for defragmenting Mac drive.

  31. Gary Bennett

    Hi Michelle. You are my latest and greatest Mac hero. Since the advent of Mavericks, my Mac has been running slower than syrup running uphill. More despite being a Mac user for nearly 10yrs – and thinking myself knowledgable all things Mac – I have been unable to get it back to my Macs of old. Enter Michelle, and voila!!! After finding your page by chance and then following every single one of your points, I confirm that everything is running fantastic – and at great speed. Only TWO issues: (1) from start-up, the Apps are still taking a whilst to kick in (no prob really, as once they have started, I quit the app and start it up again at lightening speed)….(2) I dont know if related, but all my probs (I think) were stemming from the mail-Gmail-Mavericks…I have now (at least for now) ditched mail and running with Mailplane 3…..A combination of the above now has my Mac back to near ‘new’ performance, and I would like to thank you for your help…I’ll be sure to read more about your Mac advise….Cheers

  32. Dave Thwaites

    Yes!!! You’ve just totally fixed my mac with the SMC update gem. Legend! My mac was one more ‘beachball hang’ away from testing it’s beachball qualities by throwing it out the window, but you’ve saved its bacon, and my wallet!! Thank you!

  33. Christine

    Hi Michelle

    Does the SMC and PRAM work on older macbooks?
    Mine is not a pro, but a white one app. 2008

    Thanks, Christine

  34. Michelle Smith

    Hi Christine

    I am not entirely sure about this but this is what you can do. Try the SMC instructions we have given you in the above post. If you don’t notice any kind of reset happening, try the following instructions instead. They are more specifically given out for older MacBooks.

    1. Shut down your MacBook
    2. Turn it over and open the metallic door on the underside
    3. Identify a physical SMC reset switch that will be labelled as SMC_RST (You will most probably find it under the notification LEDs. We recommend that you use a non-metallic point like a pencil nib to push this reset button)
    4. Install the door back on
    5. Power up your MacBook

    Hope this was of some help to you. Please do post back if it helped!

  35. ali

    Hello would this also work on an iMac?

  36. Michelle Smith

    Yes, the suggested resets will also work on your iMac. Use our search box to find a iMac related post. We have one just for that!

  37. Alex

    Hi Michelle,
    I was just wondering is there a reason why you haven’t mentioned Defragmenting the hard drive as one of your suggestions?
    I have heard that with a mac it is not so necessary to do it as often as a PC, but I have had my MBP for 4 years now, and was wondering if I should try that as well, or would the Clean-My-Mac be good enough?

  38. Michelle Smith

    Hi Alex

    OS X is designed to automatically defrag the Mac’s hard disk on a continual basis. Though the defrag option is available in Disk Utility, it isn’t something that needs to be run regularly, like how you would need to defrag a Windows hard disk. Hope that helps.

  39. Twitch

    WOW! I just reset my SMC…haven’t never known about it before…and my mac is running like a dream now! I can’t believe it!
    What use to take me 2 or 3 minutes to restart my computer, took less then 30 seconds…and once it did start back up, things loaded damn near instantly!
    I’m in a bit of shock right now! haha :P It’s like I’ve been given a brand new computer!
    Thank you SO much for this! I did a lot of the things you suggested in this list and now my macbook is running VERY fast!

  40. Reza

    Thanks for this intresting post. Unfortunately, none of these tricks solved my problem. Last year I upgraded to Mavericks and everything was going well until I instaled an antivirus and upgraded Java. Since then, my macbook is very very slow. However, I am not sure if this was a true reason or just a coincidence. I even wiped my laptop and installed Yosemite and tried all suggested recommendations, but nothing changed. It is so slow that my pointer does not move smoothly, stops and jumps! FYI, it is a 2011, 2GHz Core i7, 4GB, 500 GB SATA (487 GB free). Its battey is dead and it should be plugged always. I would truly appreciate if there is anything else to recommend because my laptop is useless in this condition, and I need it, and miss it!!

  41. Michelle Smith

    Hi Reza

    It sounds like your antivirus or your firewall might be the culprit. Is your antivirus still running on your MacBook? Have you installed MacKeeper? Give us the name of your antivirus and tell us if you have uninstalled it. I would recommend that you do a thorough cleanup of your application list, getting rid of all programs that you don’t need. Then, re install OS X on your existing OS X partition and then reboot. I really hope it fixes your problem. Maybe others can also pitch in with their help for Reza.

    If all else fails, try taking it to the Genius bar. Even if it is out of warranty, I suppose you could pay them to fix your MacBook, as a last resort.

    P.S. Can you try running SMARTReporter, a disk monitoring utility. Search for it in Google and download it. If it finds a problem with your hard disk, maybe you might have to replace your HDD.

  42. bOsO

    I upgraded my macbook pro to LINUX No more problems fly

  43. janine satioquia

    YAY! resetting the system management controller worked for me THANKS HEAPS!!!!!

  44. Felix

    I own an early 2011 MacBook Pro which had the common graphics issue. I found a service provider which replaced the AMD Radeon and I think the VRAM too. Either this or another company did a mistake unmounting or mounting the logic board (broken capacitor), which has been repaired as well. Since the repair job the battery doesn’t work and what bothers me more the CPU performance seems to have dropped. I have therefor compared the BOINC benchmarks from now and one month ago and the newer ones are at about 28 % of the older ones. Is it possible that the CPU doesn’t get enough Volts probably due to a higher resistance? iStat shows a CPU VCore voltage of 0,66-0,75 V.

  45. Michelle Smith

    Hi Felix

    Unfortunately, your question is a bit too technical for me. I would rather accept that I don’t know the answer than try fluffing one. Maybe some of the other readers here can chip in with their opinion.

  46. Isaac Canales

    I seem to be having a problem with my Mac Pro as well. Very recently, i’ve tried playing games that i normally do (specifically League of Legends) and i had extreme fps issues that were averaging about 15 from my usual 60 to 70. I also noticed that my processor didn’t seem to be working faster or speeding up like it normally does whenever i do an intensive action. the fan would normally speed up and i would hear it but now it sounds like the mac is at critical battery or idle all the time. I run programs like GarageBand and its extremely slow, yet the processor and the fan seem to be snoozing. My battery is fully charged and i have the “Put hard disks to sleep when possible” option unchecked in Energy Saver options but the processor still isn’t even trying. I also tried an SMC reset and nothing happened however i think i may have done it incorrectly as i don’t remember if i held it for at least 10 seconds. I really hope this isn’t serious and i don’t want to have to take it to Best Buy since my warranty is expired. Please Help!

  47. Michelle Smith

    Hi Isaac. Sorry to hear about your many problems. Can you try reading through this very detailed resource on addressing video RAM problems on a Mac? blog.conradchavez.com/2012/06/07/does-your-mac-graphics-card-have-enough-video-memory/ I have a feeling it might help you at least figure out your problem, if not help you fix it for good.

  48. Isaac Canales

    Well i read the info about the RAM and through checking in activity monitor, i see it does reach high usage percentages whenever i try to use a program. However, i don’t feel like i need to upgrade on the cards due to one simple thing that just leaves me absolutely puzzled… why is this happening now and not before. As i said before, this happened very very recently. I’ve never had problems with RAM or CPU usage in general. it all started happening about 5 days ago when the processor appeared to stop speeding up when using a program. It feels like the hard disk is frozen in a sleep state since it doesn’t even heat up faster while the fan is silent. I don’t know why this is happening but i hope i can figure out soon.

  49. Lisa H.

    Your original instructions for resetting the SMC wouldn’t work for me, on an early 2008 MacBook Pro. The machine kept powering on. I found the solution for me on Apple’s support site: support.apple.com/en-us/HT201295

    “Resetting the SMC on Mac portables with a battery you can remove
    Note: Learn about removing the battery on MacBook and MacBook Pro.

    Shut down the computer.
    Disconnect the MagSafe power adapter from the computer, if it’s connected.
    Remove the battery.
    Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
    Release the power button.
    Reconnect the battery and MagSafe power adapter.
    Press the power button to turn on the computer.”

    Hope that helps someone else.

  50. Michelle Smith

    Thank you Lisa for that share. I am sure some of our readers with older MacBooks will find your instructions really useful! Once again, thanks a lot!

  51. Barbara carrion

    Ty so much. I’m slow learning on mbp and have had weird lightning looking strikes in my computer and sudden slowness opening any app. I have done the restart several times and it works for a while then gets slow. I ck the utility and also have very little on desktop. I have a 2009 with no accessible battery or back door. I tried mackeeper but it keeps asking me to pay. Is this something I as do to fix oroblem

  52. Michelle Smith

    Hi Barbara. Do you mean your Mac slowed down after lightning strikes in your area? Did you notice something at the time of lightning. Anyways, first things first, uninstall MacKeeper. From what we read on the internet, there’s just too much negative written about that software.

  53. Donald

    It takes a half hour for my Mac book pro to start up. When I type the password in that takes about another 5 minutes. Everytime I click on something the rainbow circle shows up and takes about 2-3 minutes to go away. I have 371gb free, no clutter and hardly any apps. I have no idea what’s wrong with it.

  54. Rondo

    Wow what a difference! Thanks man!
