Hello.  my iMac 10.8.2 has, in the past few weeks, been quite slow from wakening from Sleep Mode.  It takes 10-15 seconds before the screen changes from black to an active screen.  Another thing is that the cursor is frozen on waking and the mouse has to be clicked to get it mobile again.  Recently I had the Hard Drive replaced on an Apple recall basis, but I believe the slow awaking started prior to that.  I have called Apple Support but wasnt satisfied with the agents responses.  (I will try Apple again with the hope I will get a more knowledgeable agent)  Otherwise the iMac has no other delays in it's operation.

Hope someone can assist me on this.  Thanks.


Just noticed a couple of things.  When I press the power button on the back of the iMac, it wakens normally, ie in about 1-2 seconds.  Also

the cursor is not frozen as it is when trying to wake the iMac using a keyboard (wireless one) function.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
