First iMac Problem - Frozen on Wake from Sleep

    I received my iMac at the end of last December and it has worked flawlessly ever since.

    This morning, however, when I tried to wake my iMac from sleep. the mouse cursor wouldn't move; so, I turned it off and, after a delay, on again. This time, I reset the PRAM. Boot up was achingly slow, taking several minutes. Eventually, I was able to log in and all seems well so far.

    I have repaired permissions on 'Macintosh HD' just in case.

    Constructive comments and advice would be very welcome. (I have a bootable copy of system and data made with SuperDuper! should I need it.)

    That could be of these many things:

    Overheating hardware component
    RAM gone bad
    HDD gone bad

    I would give a call to Apple Care or bring it to an Apple store.
