    Hi there,

    Just wondering if anyone is experiencing the same issues that I am. This has happened to me a few times in the past month....

    Say an app has crashed and I then bring up the force quit dialog. I then select the app I want to kill, and press the force quit button. Now as the little popup that says "Are you sure you want to force quit" is coming down, my machine freezes.

    This has happened 3 times EXACTLY the same way. Other than that, the machine is smooth as clockwork.

    I'm kinda thinking there is some sort of GFX card bug or something? Anyone else having this issue?

    17" i7 2.66 MBP
    OS 10.6.4

    Mine does that too somewhat, but i'm thinking it's either ram or my SSD.

    Even when it only happens when trying to force quit showing that lil pop out thing? Seems pretty GFX card to me? I'm 100% stable apart from that....

    And I often get (about 50% of the time) 10-20secs of static on my external monitor when waking from sleep, thats gotta be GFX issues.....

    No SSD, and it can happen on any app. It only occurs, when the popout window is half showing...
