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/ARDAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/ARDAgent" has been modified and will not be repaired.

Hmm, system is runnning VERY unstable.
Ideas?:(
