When I power on my 360 it takes awhile for the loading icon to go away and allow me to select my profile. Also when I am leaving a game and returning to the dashboard it loads for several minutes before taking me to the dashboard. Everything else works fine.

Where is your profile stored? I've found that when I'm on the HDD I load much faster than if my profile is on a memory card. I also boot faster when there's no disc in the tray, even if I'm booting to the dash.

Mine has been taking a while recently too, although it seems to be having trouble connecting with live, mostly. This winter has kept my provider from catching up on necessary work with their infrastructure, or so I've been told.

It takes a while for mine too. Little spinning icon on a white screen.

Mine takes around 30 seconds, sometimes longer. It doesn't always auto connect to live either.

I've heard display discovery can add to the time it takes too.

Mine has been this way for over a year or so now. Glad it's not just me.

I've read on here that's basically a sign of your box slowly dying after one of my two started having this happen.

That was probably a year or two ago though, and despite the heavy use, mine is still going strong (just a little slow).
