    The last 2 times Software Update on my MacBook Air told me that updates are available, I proceeded with the installs and it hung.

    Both times

    * the software update required a restart before installing
    * got stuck at the screen that shows the default Leopard wallpaper and the timer
    * holding the power button to power off and then starting it again seems to do the trick

    No a big deal, just a bit annoying. This does not happen on my macbook, just the macbook air.

    Anyone else experiencing this issue?

    Happened to me just the other day when updating to Safari 3.1.1 - exactly as you describe it.

    Had to do a hard shut down.

    Problem was, Software Update did not complete the required updates and every time I run Software Update, Safari is still offered up.

    Updated and the same thing happens again.

    Decided to just download the standalone installer and that did the trick.

    I wonder if this bug is an Air only thing because I did the same update on my iMac and all went well.
