    I just purchased a new Macbook w/ Leopard installed. I installed a few programs that *are* mac programs, and sometimes the system hangs (like in Windows, when a program doesn't respond) and have several times had to restart the computer.

    I've heard you shouldn't have to deal with this much on Mac software, nevermind so soon.

    Not bashing on Mac OSX's, I love them now! Just wondering why this might be happening. Is it because Leopard is new? Maybe a resource-management problem?

    Thanks for any answers!

    Please let us know what the specs are for the Macbook and exactly what software you are using that hangs.

    The specs are as follows:

    Core2Duo 2.2Ghz
    160GB Hard Drive
    1GB DDR2 RAM

    The programs vary. It happened with Photoshop CS3, Toast, and Firefox, off the top of my head.

    did you check your HDD? cnet just reports some MB's HDD is faulty. which fits your description...

    I shall check that.

    Also, anyone know why my keyboard just sometimes doesn't work? I'll be scrolling through some web pages, and then when I go to type another address, I'll be typing, but nothing will be coming up.

    It's real weird.

    I think that's been happening a lot with the macbooks. Might be a Leopard problem. I'm going to install tiger on mine once it arrives.
