    Hi long story short im pretty sure i may have a failing HD so that is not what i am asking you about..
    my imac boots normally unless three things happen prior to it
    1. i put the computer to sleep
    2. i schedule a shut down via energy save
    3. my computer undergoes a forced shutdown e.g. via power button or power failure
    if any of these occur i get the infamous flashing question mark, however if i wait 30 mins it boots normally again, is there a reason for these problems other than a failing HD and can i do anything about it
    f.y.i. i have already attempted clean/fresh installs of leopard and snow leopard

    Do you have warranty left? I'd contact Apple and get it fixed. Try verifying disk with Disk Utility though
