If you are like me, you rarely turn your mac off. After you are done working you simply just close your laptop or maybe just turn your monitor off or put it to sleep. Sometimes your mac begins to get a little sluggish and doesn’t seem to run as efficiently as it usually does. This is often caused because your mac has been on for so long without any time of being turned off putting a drain on your system memory. One way to fix this is by restarting your mac.
