    Let's try basic Mac Voodoo first. Repair your permissions in Disk Utility. If that doesn't do anything, or even just for the hell of it (it won't hurt anything) boot the Mac while holding command option P R and hold that until you hear the startup sound 4 times. Then switch and hold command option O F until a text screen tellls you to let go. Then type reset-nvram and hit enter. Then type reset-all and hit enter. The computer will reboot.

    If that doesn't do anything for you we can go deeper, but that comnination of things fixes most of the strange behaviors a Mac might exhibit.
