    Did you try force quitting safari?

    Did you try rebooting?

    Does this occur all of the time, or is just this one time?

    Have you restarted. Normally it only starts happening in one applications if so hold down CMD + option/Alt + Esc and force quit the application that is red or you think is causing the problem.

    If in doubt just restart the computer, if the computer fails to restart by going to the apple on the top left hand corner and selecting restart, hold down the macbook pro power button for 8 seconds and that will force your computer to turn off.

    Not a problem, If any app is going to freeze, it seems, sarfari is the one. Its been quite stable for me, but I have had issues from time to time. Force quitting typically fixes it though

    Hi I'm still having this problem but its getting worse its happening everyday, mainly when I'm in safari but also when I'm typing up work. Sometimes just minutes apart and its really annoying me. Does anyone know how to solve this. thanks

    Also I have noticed that a few people have heard the clicking noise I'm hearing that on my comp as well.
