Hi, I've now had lion for a few weeks now and don't particularly like it, but regardless, every now and then when I boot up into Lion my system seems to have a freak out and the below issues occur: 1. RAM usage goes from the usual 5 GB of free RAM (out of 8 GB) to 750 MB 2. Sound doesn't work 3. All system animations (everything from the dock scrolling to opening applications) are EXTREMELY laggy (I assume this is related to RAM) 4. Startup and shutdown take 3 - 4 times longer than normal 5. Upon startup, the system brings up the login window instead of the normal automatic login that I have set Also, when this does happen, I get this at startup: So far, I've tried resetting the PRAM, NVRAM, SMC, and running a full maintenance/clean with Onyx. Can anyone explain this weird occurrence? Any help would be much appreciated! PS: I apologise is this thread has been posted elsewhere, I haven't come across one quite like this though.
