    Try rebooting to your computer's restore disk (hold C on startup with the disk inserted) and repairing permissions from there.

    Those messages are harmless, and can be safely ignored.

    I actually tried a permission repair myself after posting, and I received the same series of errors. Interesting.

    Yes, Apple seems to forget to update Disk Utility with the new SUID file list when it releases major updates like 10.5.7... other people have this problem too.

    Does anyone know what is causing my macbook to go grey with the screen freezing and telling me to restart the mac?

    I have tried verifying hard disk and there were no problems. I also tried the hardware test with no problems. so apart from the permissions i don't know what is causing my macbook to do this :S

    All the permission entries that look like this:
    Code:
    Permissions differ on "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/iPhotoAccess.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Plugins/WipeTransition.IAPlugin/Contents/CodeResources", should be -rw-r--r-- , they are lrw-r--r--
    ... are failing to repair because the permission changing tool on Mac OS X follows symbolic links by default, and is fixing the permissions on the file pointed to by the link, instead of the link itself.

    This Apple article also clarifies what Disk Utility errors can be ignored.
