Lion allows you to leave programs running at shutdown, which will reboot when you start up the computer.
Depending how many, what size the programs are that you leave running and how many documents are left open will affect how fast the computer starts up. Also too many icons on your desktop affects this.

I am having same problem on my Mac Pro which is booting off a MacSales OWC SSD.
If I go verbose on boot, I get stuck at the same point, Executing fsck_hfs (version diskdev_cmds-540.1~25)
It says it is running fsck on the boot volume.
I have booted to TechTool version 6 eDrive and used both Apple Disk Repair utility as well as TechTool to replace directory structure etc.
What to do? Clone, erase and then clone back?
Download 10.7.3 combo and reapply (seems to have only had hissy fit since 10.7.3).

I am still having trouble with my Mac Pro - takes an eternity to start up.
Am thinking of cloning hard drive, erasing it and then reinstalling Lion from scratch.
Any other thoughts?
I have set the start up time to half an hour before I get to work so at least it has done its thinking before I get in!
