    So a little background, I tend not to shut my Mac down and let it sleep. I often have many preview windows, Eclipse, Textmate, iTunes, Skype, Entourage, and Firefox open all the time.

    About 30 minutes ago, I went to open a Textmate workspace and my system just crashed. Well actually it didn't look like a crash. My iTunes was still playing my song and so far as I can tell everything was great, until I tried to do anything. In essence my screen was completely frozen. No buttons worked, my iController wasn't scrolling the song anymore, the dock didn't response. Nothing worked. I couldn't force quit either. Of course my song was still playing.

    I've had this happen to me a few times now. Honestly I'm wondering is it something I'm doing? or an application I'm running that is causing this?

    Check Console in the Utilities folder to see if it's recording any relevant crash logs. :)
