Yes, I know I am running an older Mac, but it should be faster? The Mac Dual Processor 2 GHz G5, wiht OSX 10.5.8 shows not to be out of processor power, disk IO, memory, or any other resource, but often I get the Spinning Beach Ball of Death. It is usually when I am in Safari, or Word. I usually have Safari, Work, Mail and possibly a few other applications open. The monitor shows no resources fully used, but the beach ball just spins and the Monitor shows some application is Not Responding. Usually if I shut down and start up again it will clear up for a while, but not long. Any suggestion will be appreciated. One suggestion I have had it to kill mac spindump.
