    Hello Mac wizards,

    My mac Mini doesn't feel well anymore.... nothing changed from a week ago, but now my mac freezes every couple seconds or so. I can move my mouse around, and even switch between windows that are currently open, but can't do anything to them. If I click on my dock, it freezes, if I click on my 'file' bar at the top, spinning ball shows up. With Disk Utility open, nothing shows up taking all the computing power... 99 idle the whole time. After a minute or so (always random) the computer works just fine for another 5 seconds... then freeze.

    I did a disk verify, and permissions repair.... no help
    Any thoughts?
    I'm Running 10.6.4
    2.53 Core duel
    4G Ram

    Another interesting development, if I turn off the airport - no freezes so far....

    Found out

    So, I did some research, and I guess it's not uncommon for the Mac Mini's airport to go a little wonky.... lucky it's under warrantee, so I'm going to take it to the Mac boys and see if they can fix it =)
    Cheers
