    on my G4 450 AGP machine OS X.2.6, every so often - about twice an hour at worst, at least once a day at best the finder - and everything else that is open quits - the screen goes blue for a few seconds then it comes back up.

    WHATS THE DEAL? I now save what I'm working on all the time, so I don't ever loose much, but this is a pain.

    I've repaired permissions, run MacJanitor, dont the fsck -y thing... all to no avail.

    Any thoughts please.

    Check your USB devices, then what drivers you may have installed. Sounds like something is crashing the finder.

    Unplug all USB devices (except the Apple keyboard and mouse of course), and see if your system still does it. Then, if it works fine, plug in a device at a time, until you can identify the guilty party.
