    Hey, I'm taking a screen recording as I type.

    Hopefully I will capture enough "evidence" of what my problem is, but if not let me write a quick run through of it...

    sometimes, lately, my mac (iMac, intel 20 inch) opens all current windows. randomly, on its own, which is really frustrating when trying to design.
    It also stops me from right clicking, and the dock wont animate, runs slug ish...and a few more things.

    it seems to do this after it's been used for a while, but sometimes happens even when i put it on first thing in the morning, I've tried restarting and doesnt help.

    It doesn't always happen, but when it does its really anoying, and practicaly imposible to work on.

    I'm worndering if this is a common problem, or something I should go get looked at before my warrenty runs out.. Thanks for any advice.

    Are you running iStat to monitor your CPU and RAM usage?

    Also, the Mighty Mouse will do a left click if you have a finger touching the left side of the mouse.

    Install and run iStat. We can't help you without information regarding CPU usage.
    Also, the stats about your Mac from :apple: -> About this Mac would be helpful too.
