Hi, I relaunched finder in the Apple -> Force Quit Menu and I can't turn my computer off and I can't see my hard drive. I'm on an iBook G4 and when I hold the power button, it says Shut Down. I click it, but nothing happens. When I try to relaunch finder, nothing happens. Is there an easier way to make my computer work than disconnecting the battery? I hope so.

restart finder again? it may be on just not working if you have activity monitor on your dock you can open it and quit it, then relauch it

and you can hold down the power button for like 6 seconds and it will turn off

If it's a one time occurrence, just hold the power button down for about 5 seconds to do a hard shutdown, then start up again.

If the machine freezes like this often then throw away the torrent app, and if that don't help it might be time for a thorough bug search (or just do an archive and install).

BTW, how much HD space do you have left?
