    So over the last month or 2, I have been having this issue where my MBP (early 2008) will act as though the desktop doesnt exist. I can see it, everything functions normally, all programs operate fine, I can use spaces, expose, etc, but when I try to interact with my desktop, nothing works. I cant highlight folders, I can click on anything...


    Anyone know what might be causing this?

    What Mac OS X version (10.5.8 or 10.6.4) do you have? Does it happen on other accounts too?

    Also have a look at Activity Monitor ( Applications / Utilities / *) and select All Processes*and sort by CPU to see what the culprit may be.

    image below uses sorting by CPU as an example

    I have 10.5.8, and this is the only account I use, so I'm not sure. The problem fixed itself since I made this topic, but I'll be sure to check out the activity monitor the next time it happens.
