Ok guys, this is a weird one, I know. I've never heard of anything like it. Here's what's going on... I will be doing something normal, most often surfing the net in Safari, when Safari will stop responding to anything. All I get is beachball. Then slowly, one by one, the other apps open will stop responding to anything, including Finder. Also, new programs will not launch, so I can't open up Terminal (or anything else). When an app tries to start, the icon just bounces forever in the dock. About 15 or 20 seconds after it starts having this problem, the Apple in the menu bar won't respond either so I can't open up the force quit box. It gets to the point where no program will do anything but beachball and I have to do a hard restart. Yesterday, I figured out how to stop this whole thing. When I notice it starting, I go up to the Airport icon in the menu bar and turn airport off. Everything comes right back online like nothing ever happened. The I turn airport back on and keep going. Does anybody have any idea what is going on?
