    I recently noticed that it's been taking a bit long for my MBP to boot up. It'll stay on that white screen w/ the Apple & have that circular 'loading' image for a bit, then the blue screen for a bit longer, & finally my log-in screen.

    Any suggestions on what might be wrong?

    All suggestions are welcome! I'm rather new to Macs so all help is appreciated!

    I dunno, try leaving it on for a couple nights and see if apple will run the clean up scripts for you, the cron scripts I think, maybe that might help?:confused:

    Ok, I'll try that :)

    What exactly are the scripts going to look like? I'll try and Google a bit more to find out, lol.

    Thanks :)

    1) Run the Mac OS X maintenance scripts by:
    - open Terminal (Mac HD -> Applications -> Utilities)
    - type: sudo periodic daily weekly monthly
    - enter your administrator password

    2) Repair Hard Drive Permissions
    - open Disk Utility (Mac HD -> Applications -> Utilities)
    - go to your Mac HD
    - click on Repair Disk Permissions

    Voila! Hope it works.

    That's normally found in /usr/sbin/periodic (which should already be in your default path so 'periodic' works from anywhere).
