    For the first time I took my macbook out today. Everything was fine and dandy ladedadeda. I turned it on a few times today to do some light computer work and web surfing. When I got home I plugged it in to charge and turned it on. You know the gray screen you usually see before your desktop loads, well I saw that...then I saw a picture of my harddrive. I had to click on it to load the desktop. I restarted the computer and now the restart is slower than usual. Something isn't right and I suspect it is with the harddrive. Does anyone have an idea what is going on?

    OS X forgot its startup partition.

    System Preferences -> Startup Disk -> Pick your boot partition and reboot.

    OS X should remember after that.

    Check and verify disk permissions also. Mine was booting WAY slow and I repaired all permissions and it boots faster than when it was new it seems.
