    My iBook often freezes in the screensaver when i move the mouse the turn the screensaver off to continue working. then i have to shut it down, scream at it, then turn it back on, which is time-consuming.

    anybody else come across this? any fixes?

    it sounds like you must running a very complex screensaver for it to jam like that...

    exactly what screensaver are you running? you could try fixing permissions and running fsck -y at startup, other than that i don't have any ideas.

    I have a similar issue when trying to run that "flurry" screen saver on my rev. a. TiBook. It freezes and dies.

    :rolleyes:

    okay this is weird. iBooks freezing from screensavers, and now TiBooks!?:eek: :confused:

    so e-coli has a rev. A TiBooks, is that the 400 or 500MHz one? what about you Macette? and i guess you're both running OS 10.2?

    i'm using the 'forest' screensaver, on my 500mhz ibook, with 384MB of RAM, running OS 10.2.

    it didn't do it when i was using 10.1... the other big change is that i'm using iCal. and it usually only happens with iCal.

    Also, iCal is doing a stupid thing where the screen refuses to redraw. godammit, apple built this computer jus a bit over a year ago, and already they're releasing programs it won't run.

    drives me mad.
