    My MBP, very recently, has started to take forever to start up, averaging about 3 minutes when it used to take 30 seconds at the most. I ran ONYX clean up scripts and it didn't help. Anyone know what could be causing this and how to fix this?

    Have you installed any RAM recently? If so, remove it and see if that fixes the issue. If not, it could be an issue with the hard drive. Or you could have too many start up items.

    If you haven't done anything to your computer, I'd lean toward the hard drive failing.

    Try to Repair Disk from the Disk Utility on the Leopard DVD.
