    I have searched the threads, but could not come up with anything.

    My problem is random, sometimes when I log off, my iMac won't go to the Log In screen. It will show my background, but nothing else.
    No menu bar, no dock, nothing.

    I have Leopard installed. The current version 10.5.2.

    I don't remember this happening before I installed Leopard, but I don't know that for sure.

    I have to hold down the Start Up button on the back to restart the iMac when this happens.

    I have a printer and two External HD's attached, that's it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try disconnecting your peripherals before logging off. Also, what apps are you running at the time? Did you do a regular upgrade or a clean install of Leopard? :)

    I'm usually just running Safari (I quit Safari before logging off.)
    I did a regular upgrade. I'll try disconnecting my peripherals before logging off next time.
