    I would say backup your files, and do a fresh install of Leopard. That usually makes everything faster.

    It depends what you call slow, I find leopard isn't slow to start up, only 20 seconds if that, but i just sit back and have another sip of coffee :) so it's usually feels a while,
    Using mainmenu should keep your system in tip top condition :D

    Do you have lots of folders and documents or whatever spread across your desktop ?

    That's the most common method of slowing down Leopard.

    Should start up in 30-40 seconds.

    Is your hard disk dying ??
