    on my new imac G5 the menu bar in the upper right hand corner where spotlight resides constantly freezes, it won't do anything, and as far as i know there is no way to force quit spotlight or the menu bar. also when this happens i am unable to log out or shutdown by conventional means, i have to either hold the powerbutton for about 6 seconds or completely unplug the machine.....anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?

    Any theme changers, apps or hacks that could be doing this potentially? How about third party RAM? Is this the only time your Mac freezes? Does it do this in all accounts?
