hi,is your hackintosh is very slow or hang in open apps or others. Go to active monitor to check what apps running & take most cup,ram...etc.sometimes its because of HDD or power management  problems.you can try soft like ccleaner or Mac keeper or rebuild cache...


one more thing is your QE/CI working.try boot flag -v see what happened.............

Thanks deadman

I just try this, with onyx i did a complete scan, check and repair the boot disk, clean all cache, even disable spotlight (i don't really need this) , i did all the scripts.

And as say before i just have a few apps and i keep this set of apps for a long time. think in this mac like a kind of server, just for movies, i don't use this computer for anything else.

I was able to perform this task (download , convert, stream) with the same hardware and all the doers previous version of OSX


I don't use power management i don't save energy on this mac, never goes to sleep 


Thanks for your help
