Internal HD has difficulty mounting

Texte:

iMac, 17", Intel 2 GHz Core 2 Duo

Internal hard drive sometimes has difficulty mounting.  I can hear it start to spin up, click 2-3 times, then spin back down, repeat.  This happens during a cold start (following shutdown), but not for a restart.  It also happens when "un-sleeping" if I set Energy Saver prefs to put computer to sleep.  If "put computer to sleep" is set to Never, no problem.

If I'm having problems, I can usually get the internal drive to mount by booting from the DVD drive using the OS X install disk or Prosoft Drive Genius 2 disk.  Disk Utility and Drive Genius 2 tests detect no problems.  (tho after a failure to mount, there are usually some Disk Utility repairs needed)

So is the internal drive on its last legs, or could this be something else, such as a power supply problem?
