    Are you saying it freezes at the same time each day? What apps are you using at the time? :)

    Well, it really could be anything at this stage... Try booting into Safe Mode by holding SHIFT at startup. Does it freeze when running from Safe Mode? :)

    I've had some trouble on a G4 also. One was that Safari 3 would sometimes lock up and stay stuck in the dock until I restarted.

    Another was related to a large music library in iTunes, which kept eating swap-space, until it filled the hard-drive and froze my Mac. Are you perhaps suffering from lack of disk-space?

    Safari 3 is still a beta so you can't really complain too much about it freezing... However the disk space thing could be an issue. Make sure you keep about 8GB of free space available on the boot drive at all times, if possible. :)

    Okay, I was referring to Vinnie_vw's post. eriX, did you try Safe Mode? Is the 72GB of free space on your boot partition or on the drive as a whole? :)

    Keep your pants on. Did you try booting into Safe Mode by holding SHIFT at startup? That's often a good way of seeing if the problem might be software-based.

    I agree with mad jew try safe mode first, Then complain. Also what apps are you running at the time of the freeze.
