    I've had my macbook pro for a couple months now, 13" 2.66ghz 8gigs ram 500 gig HD, and a couple times a day the computer completely freezes. Doesn't do anything for about 30 seconds then resumes back to normal.

    I've tried restarting the ram holding option command P+L, still does nothing. What do I do about this, bring it to apple for replacement or what?

    Could be a sign of a failing HDD. Make sure you have a current backup.

    You could try verifying the disk using disk utility to check for errors.

    Boot up to your install DVD and repair the disk from disk utility there.
    You can find the steps to perform here.

    Will I loose any of my data on the HD doing that?

    There's always a chance that you may lose data, especially as disk failure could be the cause of the problems. Make sure you backup everything you need before doing anything else. But if the drive is not failing after all, then repairing the disk's file directory in disk utility should probably fix it.
