    my laptop was on went to sleep mode , asked me to enter my password , entered the password and just froze no way to force quit, I powered it off and restarted and all I get is the grey screen apple logo , wheel spinning I ran disk utility and chose to repair the HD that was completed and it said the disk appears to be ok, I quit disk utility and restarted and still apple logo + spinning wheel I recently upgraded to mountain lion few days ago and that obviously has something to do with it , I owned this laptop for 2 years and this never happened

    What am I supposed to do I do have the Snow Leopard CD's but If I do that wont I lose everything that was on my HD? or so and how will I reinstall Mountain Lion again? purchase it again via app store or will it be stored there?

    This happened to me recently. I turned on/shut down the machine a couple of times and it fixed itself. Don't know if that will be the same for you, but doesn't hurt to try. Just wait a bit longer than normal.

    Also: remove any USB devices if you have any plugged in. just in case.
