    For the first minute or so when I wake up my 2007 MacBook, it becomes really laggy. I have iStat installed and it usually shows the CPU and memory usage as being very low, but sometimes it jumps up. Either way, for a minute or so the computer's pretty much unusable.

    Just now I took it out from sleep mode and the CPU usage did go high and general performance was very slow again.

    The apps I usually have open are Firefox and Chrome. The OS is Snow Leopard with all the updates installed. I've tried repairing permissions and rebooting but no help.

    My late 2006 does this if it has been asleep for a long time. I attribute the problem to a slow HDD. I didn't have the problem when I installed a 7200rpm drive.
