    My desktop has frozen three times in the past week. A couple other times my icons are moved over about 3 inches like the desktop starts there but the other things, windows and taskbar, are in the same spot. All other programs and dock are fine. I have to restart to get these things to go away. Anybody know anything about this? i have a aluminum macbook 2.4 ghz.

    my guess would be your Motherboard/Logicboard, whatever you wanna call it lol, its battery is dying out. They take a small watch battery and thats what remembers little things like that if im not mistaken

    Run the Apple Hardware Test. Hold down the D key while starting up from your system DVD. That will tell you if you have a hardware issue.
