I've been noticing a problem of a freezing computer on the gray screen on startup in the last month. I simply re-start my computer, and it goes back to normal and boots up fine. I've not installed and programs, utilities, or new hardware. My computer still has over 200 gig of free space.

Is this an indication of a worse problem? If not, is there something I can do to fix this? I regularly used the Disk Utility program to  check and fix permissions, so that should keep it somewhat clean.

2x2.66GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
