    Since my upgrade to Leopard, my MBPro, 2.33, 2 Gig RAM, is slower to boot than my XP box at work, that has waaaaayyyy too many startup items :(
    Took all items out of my Start Up section in preferences.
    Almost 2 mintues to a log in screen :eek:.
    Anyone else seeing this :confused:?
    I am not 100% sure, but I just do not remember it being this slow beore this.

    I have the exact same spec MBPro as you. Mine starts up much quicker than Tiger used to. Although I did do a erase and install for leopard.

    I am having similar issues on a Macbook pro,
    but they are progressively getting better.
    I think doing an upgrade it just needs time for the Finder to index certain things...yeah slowly getting up to speed

    Slow boot as well, but improving

    I just installed Leopard a few hours ago, and I too had the eternal reboot problem. I can hear my hard drive working overtime though, so I am pretty sure that it is indexing and once that is done it should be fine.

    Gets worse

    Tried to open System Preferences, and it locked up.
    I could not force quit.
    I rebooted, with Leopard in, went to Utilities and repaired permissions.
    While doing that, I got a message that they had been repaired but also got this:
    Warning: SUID file "System/library/coreservices/remotemanagement/" has been modified and will not be repaired.

    Hmm, system is runnning VERY unstable.

    I would do an Arcive and Install rather than an Upgrade. Even better, an Erase and Install and then transfer via Migration Assistant.
