    This may have been going on for a while

    Every month or so everything will freeze up - usually during an intensive session of design work
    Since I could never operate with the mouse or keyboard - I would force it to turn off by holding down the power button.

    I use a mac wireless mouse & keyboard during these occassions.
    And today I discovered that I could move the cursor with my touchpad & mbr's keys.
    So Bluetooth must be the culprit. I turned it off - but it wouldn't allow me to turn it back on.

    And everything comes back to normal on reboot

    Is a failing Bluetooth a sign of hardware problems?

    If that doesn't work, try an SMC reset. This can fix a lot of hardware related issues.
