Just about a month ago I had a laptop that was getting increasingly sluggish to the point that it 
took almost 20 minutes to start up and become somewhat useable. What I noticed was that the disk 
activity light would go on solid and the system would nearly stop responding to me. Replacing the 
hard drive cured the issue.

I would check the logs for disk errors or lots of "corrections". Do you have smartd running?
