    Ever since I have updated to 10.5.8, Leopard will continually freeze.

    I restart and it loads up all fine but as soon as I open something (Finder window, Mail, Safari etc) it will remain usable for about 30 more seconds until it just freezes with a blank screen (sometimes black, red or white) OR the screen image will freeze but I can still move the mouse except nothing is clickable anymore.

    I've resorted to starting up in safe mode to post this but has anyone had this issue before? Any help or suggestions? Please!!

    I'm experiencing the same thing.

    Anyone out there with the same problem?

    I've thought that it was my internet connection and stuffs.
    but even without my internet connection, i'm still getting random freezing, usually between 5-30s.

    Did you install the 10.5.8 update through Software Update or did you use the Combo update? Either way have you tried reapplying the Combo update to your system to see if that fixes it?

    I have the same issue. I'm just going to wait it out until Friday when I do a fresh install of Snow Leo. Hoping that'll clear out whatever is causing the problem. :)
