HT1750: Intel-based iMac (Mid 2007) and later: How to find the serial number

Learn about Intel-based iMac (Mid 2007) and later: How to find the serial number

HT1750 After powering up, my (late 2012) iMac (bought March 2013) 'freezes' on the the grey log-in page for about 7 minutes before I can even enter my password and get started. Anyone know why, please?

It just hangs on the grey log-in page, with the mouse cursor stuck in top left corner, and unable to key password into window, until after about 7 minutes.


I always close all applications and programs prior to shut-down, but it's as if something is running in the back-ground...


Any suggestions welcome, thanks.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)
