Lately I've been having issues with osx taking a CRAZY long time to start up. Every time it does start, I have this hunch that, considering how hard spotlight is working after startup, that it might have something to do with it. Checking out activity monitor, everything is more or less normal before and after startup.
Is this normal? I can't remember this happening when I first got this macbook. Speaking of which, it's 10.7, 2.7 ghz lion.
