    Sometimes I will randomly get the spinning color wheel when I hover the mouse above the right side of the toolbar.

    It shows when I hover above the airport, battery, date/time, and volume.

    Also, when I turn my volume up, the volume meter in the upper right doesn't adjust to show the change.

    The only solution that I have found is a full restart.

    Interesting. I unplugged my iPod from the dock, it said "Do not disconnect" but, it wasn't showing up on the desktop or iTunes, so I couldn't eject it.

    Anway, taking the iPod off got rid of the spinning wheel, and I can edit the things that it was blocking now.:confused:

    That whole array of menus on the right is called SystemUISe. If you type "top" into the terminal, you'll see it. I think it's a sloppy program. I always have so much trouble with it. A few weeks back, I'd constantly get the spinning beach ball when I'd move my cursor over it. Even after reinstalling, it'd still do it. I think Apple could definately improve upon it.
