My MBP is being unusually slow?

    For the past day or two my Mac has been really really slow, as in, when I close windows, type text, or two-finger scroll in Safari, the computer does nothing for a second, then jumps to what it should do. Even typing this text right now, the words are appearing in several word chunks rather than smoothly. Its really, really infuriating.

    I recently installed Bootcamp, but I don't think that has anything to do with it. It took about a day after Bootcamp for it to appear, and theres plenty of drive space left. I repaired permissions on the disk (and I saw several new ones that concerned some type of Flash player in my Library?), and restarted. I really don't have that many programs open (iCal, TextEdit, Safari). I don't get the beachball all that often, just infuriating pauses.

    What's wrong? Can anyone help?

    Sunny but Cold.. Canada

    I have only seen this (on both my Original 1.83 GHz and New 2.4 SR MBP) when I come within a couple of Gigs of filling the HD... It slows then eventually Displays "HD near full" type of msgs...

    Is this a possibility??? If so, time to dump some Info.... ;)
