    Earlier today my 1 month old C2D iMac started acting funny for a few minutes. Every app I tried to open would continually bounce in the dock until I had to force quit. I tried relaunching Finder, but it quit and never relaunched.

    I was forced to restart and the computer hung on the gray screen before the :apple: indefinitely. I was finally able to startup by holding Option. I repaired permissions and verified the hard drive.

    Everything seems to working fine again, but I'm worried that something is wrong. Should I be worried, or do you think it was just a one-time issue? Thanks for the help.

    Macs spaz out once in a while. Used to happen more often with earlier versions of OS X. It's basically bugginess in the inner workings of OS X - launchd, and other system components. If it passed the disk check then there's probably nothing to worry about. Just keep on making regular backups (you were doing that anyway, right?) :)

    Always. Thanks for the reassurance, too.
