    I recently moved to Lion on my 2.66 ghz core 2 duo MacBook pro, with 4 gigs of ram. I'm getting the spinning wheel of death all the time. Frequently it takes forever to be able to click on a window or open a folder. It seems like almost any action sends it into a 30 second wait period where I can't do anything.

    This can't be right. I'm running disk utility now, but have no idea if that's barking up the wrong tree.

    Anybody have a similar experience after moving to Lion, and we're you able to fix it? Thanks.

    That helped a lot. I also did permissions repair in disk utility. Running well now. Thanks!
