    I have a new mac pro and have installed Transmission as a bittorrent client (not sure if this is related but it was open on all occasions the spinning wheel appeared). Just before the spinning wheel appears i notice that my internet connection drops to 0kbps up and down. then if i click on a program (seems to be any program, ichat, itunes, safari, etc) sometimes the wheel appears and never goes away.

    anyone know what this is related to?

    Oh, that's no big deal.

    It's just Apple telling you that it has been too long since you've been to a beach.

    All you have to do to fix it is go to the beach, hang out for a while, maybe swim or play some volleyball, and then come home.

    Then it should work.

    I had the spinning beach ball, then a freeze. I just forced a shutdown by holding the power button down for about 5 seconds and haven't had it happend to me since. It's been about 4 days now. Ram? Messing with internet connections? I'm not sure what caused it.
