    Hey everyone,

    My Macbook Pro has recently been freezing (rainbow ball) whenever I try to print, usually in MS Word, Pages or in Safari. It is just the application that does not respond. It also happens sometimes when saving, which is hugely frustrating! The problem is temporarily solved with rebooting.

    Any ideas what I can do that that is won't happen so much?

    Thanks

    Doug

    Is the saving freezing happening in all apps too? How is your printer connected and what sort of printer is it? Do you have any system hacks or theme changers installed? What other apps are running? Does the machine eventually respond or do you have to Force Quit the app? :)
