Re: Yes. Very same prob & fix

I too had the grey screen delay a couple of times. This was when some beta app brought down the whole system forcing me to restart with the reset button. I could clearly hear the hard disc grinding away but it took so long I didn't think it was ever gonna finish. I force restarted again and held down command+V to see the verbose system messages. It turned out the system was running fsck to repair the disk.
I believe this is new in 10.1.5, as I have never noticed this in earlier versions, though I could be mistaken and missed a switch or something in the preferences. My advice would be to see if the system comes out of it by itself, which could take some time with todays big harddrives.
