    my Oct 2008 macbook pro just started to have a very strange problem today.

    I cam back today and found the machine hung - ie couldn't enter a password or get the keyboard or mouse to work. Powered it down hard - no other option.

    I rebooted several times and after a few minutes it seems to hang and I'm unable to use the keyboard or mouse. I rebooted into safe mode and had the same problem.

    Right now it frozen while I was in Firefox and I can scroll around in a page, bit I can't command tab or 4 finger to reach another app. Also the menu bar at the top is not working. I can't click on the apple icon or select bookmarks etc. Lastly, I can't launch anything from my dock.

    Any ideas about what is causing my mac to hang? reminds me of my windows days. :(

    Even more strange - got up this AM rebooted my MAC and everything is back to normal - obviously something ran overnight and resolved the issue.

    That wouldn't happen with Vista :)
