    It used to take 20-30secs to boot?

    now its up to 1-1/2 minutes>

    Are you running Leopard? Many users running Leopard have noted a significant increase in boot time.

    Perhaps you have a lot of startup programs. You can view a list of login items under User Accounts in System Preferences.

    Look at the logs ...

    I looked at mine and realized that I needed to rerun something because the Quicktime update had thrown something out of whack.

    Hopefully after a boot cache update (darn throttling respawn again) and a permission repair, thing will settle back down.
