iMac 2007, all updates, OS=ML

I thought the problem was re-starting after SuperDuper clone, its not!

iMac won't start....get Apple logo with spinning wheel - goes no further. Used to happen occasionally, last two days,daily. Can't turn off with on/off button either. Past remedy is to unplug...re-plug in, then the "start" button used to work, not any more. ;(

What seems to work so far (yesterday and today). Is to do the unplug/replug in and then a "safe boot" - so far that's working.

No peripherals (i.e., backup drive for TM or anything else) are plugged in.

I think I'm starting to panic....any thoughts? At first I thought it might be the start button. Now I'm thinking something in my "start-up preferences"....I do have Calendar, Drop Box, 1PW,and others starting up automatically, could that be the issue or might it be worse than that???
