hey guys,
i turned on my computer today, just looking at the apple logo and that spinny thing below it during startup. after 5 minutes, i give up, and hold the power button to turn it off. i turn it on again, and this time, after 1-2 minutes, it turns on.

should i be worried?
what should i do?

I'd start with using Disk Utility. (applications/utilities)
Run Repair Permissions and Verify Disk.
May not be anything to worry about, but check all the same!

When all else fails, try everything!

It happens on occasion. If it starts to become the norm, then we could do more investigating.
Any problems with the Verify disk?
If not, just keep an eye out if happens again. (and let us know!)

hey soulwar,
this was the first time in about a year that it happened. other than verify disk being extremely slow (maybe for everyone), it looked pretty good!

ill be back if it happens again soon!

thanks,
