I woke up, went to my late 2011 MacBook Pro and it took forever for the display to wake up, and it kept showing beach ball,

After some minutes, the login prompt came up but with the beach ball still spinning.


After waiting for like 3 minutes I decided to shut it down by pressing the power button.

The computer restarted and it's giving me a screen to re-install Lion from a backup or from the app store.


Crazy! I shut it down to see if it will work fine, but I keep getting the same screen re-install screen.


Now what I want to know is will re-installing from the app store wipe away my documents? This is crazy! And don't have a backup to re-install from.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
