    Hi, ive had this problem for a while now, when i power my ibook up i dont get the apple logo appear and the loading circle, all i get is a black screen and then 25 seconds later the logon appears.

    It doesnt bother me i was just wondering if someone could tell me why this happens.

    The ibook was bought 2nd hand (brand new condition) and i reinstalled tiger.

    Another thing which i have slightly wrong is that i am unable to change the brightness of the screen, the Brightness buttons dont do anything.

    Like i said , these dont bother me at all im just curious on why they happen.

    It's been doing this since you installed Tiger right? The brightness that is, sometime older iBook sceens just take a while to starup for some reason.

    Did you use the retail or recovery version of Tiger?
