    Ok, I have a base 15" mbp 2010 model. I wanted to restart my laptop several times and this happened about twice now. I had to force shutdown by holding the power button, but this can't be healthy for it.

    Here's what happens, I go to apple>restart and then my desktop icons and taskbar, finder bar goes all away so that only my desktop background is showing, and it stays there. I can still move the cursor with my trackpad but me being new to macs, i don't know any keyboard shortcuts to bring up the activity monitor and stuff. Is something wrong with my macbook pro?

    Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    no one can help me? i'm very worried, things like this shouldn't be happening on a brand new 2010 machine... a $2000 one to be exact

    Go into the disk utility and choose repair disk permissions. This helped the same problem on my end.
