    Am I the only one who has issues with Quicklook?
    Sometimes it just gets stuck and I cant close it. Only a restart fixes it. Not even a relaunch of Finder helps.

    Also sometimes when using iChat, by using "Quicklook" from iChat, the window is empty.

    None of these happened in Snow Leopard.

    1. Repair the permissions on the startup disk with Disk Utility!
    2. Start your Mac in the so called "Safe Mode":
    , then wait 2-5 minutes, before you restart your Mac!

    I hope this solves your problems.

    Incase stumbles on this looking for an answer, fixing it is relatively easy. Whenever Quicklook gets stuck with a blank preview, select any random file or folder and invoke Quicklook. Tap it a few times until you see a preview of the selected file, then press it again to close Quicklook. Next, use CMD+Tab to switch to another application. This will break the cycle without a reboot. Took me awhile to figure it out :) Enjoy!
