Why does it take so long for my MacBook Pro to start?

When I start up my MacBook, it takes a good minute or two for the gray screen to go away. Is this normal, or is there something I can do to speed up the process?

When I attack you personally, I always start with, "You Jerk! ... "
That is how you can tell the difference.

I am not attacking you.
It is only a coincidence that I posted my opinions after yours more than once on a quiet Sunday night.
My post was factual and on topic, not personal. You are taking this far too personally.

The real work in Disk Utility is done with ( Repair Disk ).
( Repair Permissions ) is only useful when Applications (Installed with Installer) won't open.

try this - go to system preferences and select your hard drive as the start up drive - even if it's already selected, select it again and restart your macbook.
if that doesn't work - do a SMC RESET and see if it improves the way your Macbook performs.
while you're at it - once you're up and running - open disk utility and verify your disk permissions - if errors are found, repair them and restart your Macbook and see if that makes it perform faster for you.
also see how much disk space you've got left. when you're close to full, it's normal for your macbook to slow down.
good luck - hope those tips helps you out.
