    Hey guys, I got a new uMBP from the Apple store early July and I have since noticed that when I am watching movies in quicktime, iDVD or in iTunes my computer momentarily locks up for about a minute... it seems like its around 15 minutes into the movie. I have tried many different power saving options and have compared movies on my HDD to straight from a dvd... suggestions???

    edit: what about when you see them in VLC or real player

    I haven't tried VLC player. I will try it and see if its any different but I would like for my computer to work with Front Row. I use my TV as a secondary monitor so when I am away from my desk I can sit on the couch and watch a movie. Is it possible something is checking for updates or updating other than through the update manager?

    I want you to check to see if it's software problem or hardware

    VLC works fine.. I guess that means its software. Where can I start looking?
