    I've been experiencing weird Spotlight mishaps lately. So I open spotlight and start typing, but nothing hapens, no search results appear. I have to close it and open again (like double click on it) and then all the results appear. Anyone hd the same problem and fixed it? it is so annoying

    Cheers

    I seem to recall this happening early on in Leopard. What version of OS X are you running?

    Try trashing ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.spotlight.plist and rebooting.
