No solution unfortunately, just to say that you are not alone. I had a MacBook2,1 Mid 2007 2.16 GHz with the same symptoms of a moveable cursor but otherwise frozen, this one consistently took eight minutes to become active. Not finding any similar cases online, I ended up selling it with the fault declared.

Thanks Nick for sharing your experience. I wasn't finding anything like this online and now a bit more (not exactly what I was hoping to hear though… ) Did you ever take your computer to a professional Apple support guy?

This MacBook was bought as non working and without a hard drive, so I was happy when it worked as far as it did and when I found no information I did not have it looked at. Although you might not get a definitive answer, as it certainly does not seem to be a common issue, it might be worth taking yours in for diagnosis.

Since a brand new, clean OS install is not working right, you should verify there is no hardware issue.
Apple computers that shipped with Mac OS X v10.5.5 to 10.6.7, Apple Hardware Test is located on the Applications Install Disc 2 and was included with your computer.
If yours shipped with 10.6.8 follow the instructions on the link.
