OK, a report:

-I tried Permissions Repair via the Disk Utility. The first time it brought up a laundry list of repairs and said it would take 30 minutes. After about 10 minutes or so it stopped, and the time remaining never budged. I hit Permissions Repair again and it said 22 minutes...I hit it several times more and the time remaining decreased: 19, 17, 16....then increased again to 20, 30. Then I stopped.

-I tried a PRAM reset. No difference.

-I tried an SMC reset. It didn't fix the problems that this thread is about, but it did help with an intermittent flickering monitor that is now better! So thanks for that--but alas, the original problem remains.

More ideas welcome! Thank you!!
