    This started on me last night and just happened on me today, when I start the computer up everything is fine however after about a hour or so every program one by one locks up (all I get is that damn pin wheel when I move my mouse over). At this point If I try to force quit the app force quit box locks up! if I try to open activity monitor from the dock, the dock locks up. It just gets to the point where the entire system is no longer responsive and I have to hold down the power button in order to get the system to restart. I'm at a loss at what is doing this, id love any help with troubleshooting.

    I'd strongly suggest going to an apple store and having it checked out. you could also try to repair disk permissions.

    Take it to your local Apple retail store, sounds like your HDD is failing.
