Whenever restarting and the login screen shows, it soon will hang with spinning animation. However, if i quickly login guest, i can avoid the hangup and log out and login my main without hangup.
Now any reason this could happen? the boot drive is ssd.
would the trim enabler be related to this?

beside the hangup, lion is snappy.


thanks

The same happened to me. I found out if I didn't move the mouse at all and just logged in using the tab button to get to the password field. I only rebooted once, and that happened... I'm not sure if I'm going to be happy if this problem persists...

Happend to me to. Also got a 3rd party ssd no trim though. Sometimes the shutdown also hangs but mostly the login of i wait à couple of seconds. Do more people with ssds experience this?

I've got a SSD (in my sig), no trim and have experienced this 3 times since Wednesday. Go to log in and get the spinning beach ball. Have had to shut my MBP down and reboot to get past it. Really liking Lion, but this is annoying.
