On reading the first post I was screaming at you hard drive cable! (I'm here too late) as they are always the cause on these machines from 09-12 it seems they fail and the Mac runs slow or you end up not being able to access the hard drive at all and get white screen with boot options on startup with no fix other than a new cable. By the way have you ...

reenabling Finder icons solved this for me

~200 processes seems a tad high, but not out of range for *nix systems depending on the hardware and services being invoked. Managing the things that you've installed through the LaunchAgents and LaunchDaemons is the best plan that won't kill your system. Digging into services invoked by launchd is not something I'd recommend unless you understand what the ...

I have seen the same problem on an iMac 27" 2011 with an i7 3.4Ghz. Apple has a replacement program. You can find more infos here: http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203787 I found a temporary solution. The iMac can recover from this mode. Just put the iMac to sleep. When it wakes up it's fine again. Use the sleep button on your Mac. Alternatively you can do ...

I also had this issue. For me, the solve was to first turn off Wi-Fi (somehow Finder actually allowed that single action), connect an ethernet cable, then reboot the machine. Immediately after booting up, I quit the Dropbox app, then unchecked Dropbox in System Prefs › Extensions. Seems to have resolved the issue for now.

After upgrading to Yosemite everything seems to work again. I guess the reason for the problems I had will remain hidden for all time :)

In my case it seemed that a network drive (WDMyCloud via WdQuickView app) caused the Spinning wheel in Finder (Console showed a lock held exclusively for too long); disconnecting it solved this.

It looks like the AppleScript is run within Quicksilver’s process (depending on how you run it). If that’s the case, you’d need to relaunch Quicksilver. If it’s not completely frozen, you can do this quickly with ⌃⌘Q. It might also be possible to set some kind of timeout in the script to prevent it from hanging indefinitely.

This is a known and serious issue with the retina MBP and Yosemite, particularly the 2012 retina but other retina owners are reporting this problem too. Far as I know it's limited to the 15 inch machines, at least from what I've been reading. Yosemite basically crashes on graphics switching. Check out the lengthy forum posts over on apple.com. Basically, all ...

If agentroadkill's answer does not satisfy you, try this… First off, change the app to open when an iOS device connects to OS X's default (Image Capture). Second, track iPhoto's external files with AppZapper. In AppZapper, [Left click] on iPhoto and [Right click] on each of its files to open a Finder window to their location. And manually nuke 'em all. ...
