    hi,

    what's causing this?

    sometimes it starts up properly, and other times it will start up in safe boot.

    i dont do anything else other than press the power button on my MBP...?

    thanks for any help :)

    its a a few months old 2011 15" MBP with all the latest updates. running snow leopard

    anybody?

    i have a new 2011 MBP.

    from time to time, when i simply press the power button on the MBP it will start up in safe boot.

    i then have to click on restart, and then it will start up normally...

    ?

    i've never heard a mbp booting up in safe mode without the user pressing shift key (ah reminds me of the old mac os 7 days when pressing shift would disable extensions LOL)...
