    I'm having an issue with my 2011 Mini getting totally froze when I disconnect my VPN. I'm running Lion.

    It doesn't happen every time, just very randomly. It freezes so bad I'm forced to hold down the power button and have it restart. I can't force quit or get any response at all. The menu bar status scrolls "disconnecting" forever. Needless to say anything I was working on that didn't save is lost.

    Any idea whats causing this?

    Do you know what kind of VPN it is (the software behind it)?

    It's just a run of the mill commercial PPTP VPN. It is setup via network prefs.

    I was looking for "Windows Server 2003" or something like that.
