    Hello yall. I am new to Mac. Got me a nice new 2.8 24 incher. Only problem is, all of a sudden, OSX decided to freeze on me. I have tried turning the computer off and on, and even unplugging it for a bit. The computer boot up, but I cannot click on anything. The menus up top do not respond when clicked upon, nor does any of my items in the dock. When left sitting, the screensaver activates. What can i do here?

    you could try to repair permissions in disk utility. might be worth a shot.

    i agree.try running disk disk permissions or even disk repair..
    believe it or not the little white book that came with it has a very basic troubleshooting section for those new to mac which has some basic steps to try when this stuff happens..I would start there
