    I have a Mid-2007 Mac Mini and I've noticed every couple days, when I log out of the secondary account, it takes a relatively long time to return to the login screen. The blue screen sits there for maybe 30 - 40 seconds, but then when it returns to the main screen the whole machine freezes. The only thing I can move is the mouse, I can't click any of the buttons such as restart, sleep or get back into my account. I always have to do a hard shutdown.

    Has anyone else had this problem before? It's really irritating! :mad:

    Do you have fast user switching option enabled? Meaning that you can have 2 accounts running at the same time and you can switch back and forth. You may have to enter passwords for each account if they have one each time you switch over.
