OK.. I know it's not my imagination. After years of developing a rhythm to saving and closing files via keyboard strokes... I find myself waiting for CS6 to finish saving. Sometimes a ridiculously long time.

Any ideas?
Is it the auto save feature that's slowing things down?
I don't think it's my drive since it responds well to other files reading and writing.
I have alternate scratch disk enabled.. aydda yadda.
