When off it takes over 7 minuets to come on again?
Why does my macdbook take over 7 minuets to turn on?
Is this a good question?
Mid 2006 / model number A1181 / black or white case / 1.83 or 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo processor.
Go to System preferences> StartUp Disk, and make sure that your internal HD is selected as your start-up Volume. It may be taking this long if it's trying to boot from a network. If that is ok on that end, then I would boot into safe mode by holding the shift ket while booting. This will repair any directory issues, if any. You should also re-index your HD.
This is a longshot, but I've seen MacBooks, especially Aluminum Pros, take 5-15 minutes to start up as a result of bad DC-ins. When this is the case, they typically work fine once they finally do boot up, and generally also the Firewire or USB ports (or both) fail to work (the computer recognizes something is plugged into the ports, but it won't "bring up" the device that is plugged in).
What is on the screen during the 7 minutes it takes to boot? One good test would be to boot from another machine's hard drive using a Firewire cable and target/option mode, and see if that also takes 7 minutes.
