    What does it mean when my 13" Macbook Pro pointer turns into a spinning color wheel after a web page loads, but freezes while this is happening? Every now and it does this for just a few seconds. At first I though maybe it lost my home Wifi signal, but it's showing 4 full bars.

    The page is merely loading. Most likely flash-intensive content.

    Just that the computer is doing some processing so it can load the page... if it does this frequently then your hard drive may most likely be slowing down or you are running out of memory and need to close some programs.

    This can also be caused by an unresponsive script. There is some bad javascript on the web.

    This even happens on web sites I visit frequently. And I don't have multiple programs running when this occurs, so hard believe my computer is running out of memory.
