    hey everyone,
    i'm running os x on an ibook that's only a few months old. i had a kernel panic problem awhile back which, fortunately, i was able to resolve, however a new problem has sprung up in the last 2 weeks. i leave the computer on/online 24 hours a day and until now, it has never been an issue. recently, when i come back to the computer after some time, i notice that the clock has frozen. i am still able to control the mouse, though when i run the pointer over aol instant messenger, for example, it appears to be busy. at this point, the computer starts running rather noisily. usually, the only solution is to turn off the machine via the power button and let it sit for several hours. any ideas as to the culprit and or a fix?
