Recently my macbook slowed down during it's initial boot process. It now takes 42 seconds just for the apple logo to appear. Finally after 1:20 I'm at the desktop. I can certainly live with this but am just curious as to why all of a sudden the initial process has basically doubled (getting to the apple logo). I haven't done anything to cause this. Since then I've cleaned my system and repaired permissions using OnyX. Also reset PRAM but still get the same results. Any ideas?
