I'm concerned that for something in the system is causing slower shut down times on my MacBook Pro 15" Unibody than before. My MacBook Pro used to shut down in 7 seconds, but now it takes more than 15 seconds. I tried unmounting the BOOTCAMP partition and still was slower. So I was wondering if there's something I can do to decrease the shut down time.

I also compared it to my brother's early 2008 Macbook and his shuts down in only a few seconds, which I find weird because it's older.

Try running a disk permissions on disk utility, that usually helps. Also try a program called Onyx. Apple.com
