MacBook 2.16 4gb ram (2x2) 120gb HD OSX 10.5.6 I've ran Onyx, Cocktail, manually repaired disk permissions, everything I can think of. I get a white screen for around 25 seconds on boot, then I get the apple logo for another 15, then I get a blue screen for a good ten, then I finally get a desktop. All in all it takes about a minute and ten seconds to boot, the previous times are just rough estimates of each. The install is fresh, about 2 weeks old. Seems to have came about recently that the solid white screen before the apple logo takes the longest. The only odd behavior I see is that it blinks the white sleep light when I hit the power button as if it is trying to wake up, then starts booting. As well that very lengthy white screen BEFORE the apple logo screen. What is that? I was going to go in and manually delete my sleep image to see if I can improve boot times. Anything else you can suggest I do manually? The programs aren't seeming to help. I don't seem to be getting as good of battery life since this issue came about, but the system processes don't point to anything obvious.
