    I have been using my MBP in Windows a lot recently out of necessity. I went back to OSX today, and it took FOREVER to load... 10 minutes. On the white screen with an Apple on it, a progress bar I had never seen appeared, and it ran pretty slow. No other indication of what was going on. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    2 things I've noticed, as I use Boot Camp as well. First, when you are in the OS X side, go to system preferences and highlight the Mac disk for restart and restart - it should be faster. Also, OS X does some general housekeeping while the system is on so if you've been using the Windows side for a month, use the OS X side over a weekend, leave it idle when not using it, etc let it catch up on housekeeping.
