    What version of OS X are you running? Do you have a bluetooth mouse? Are you running any services (ie, FTP, HTTP)? Can you tell us any of the things you've changed in this area of time?

    i am running the newest osx, no bluetooth mouse nothing like that. no services, nothing at all that i can think of that would do it other than me using the aiport for internet.

    Have you tried using another mouse and keyboard? My trackball seems to act up on my iMac G4 from time to time.

    Yeah, my mouse sometimes keeps my Macs up. Also, keep Activity Monitor open and see if there's a process doing stuff™ when the hard drive starts speeding up. :)
