    Is the following happening to anyone else.

    Clicking an application or any icon and nothing happens, the folder, the app fails to open etc?

    I'm on 10.7.1

    If you used Safari on your computer to post that message, how did you get it to open? Did you use telepathy?

    Sorry, I was laughing SO hard at your reply I couldn't type.

    FFS :rolleyes:

    Here's an idea, perhaps I used another device, iPhone, iPad, Macbook or perhaps, just perhaps the iMac wasn't locked up at the time.

    Naturally. My humorous observation began with an "if". It seems your problem is solved now, which should make us all happy.

    Joking apart I think the problem is solved.

    Looks like my Wacom is messing thinks up!

    When 'Preview' or 'QuickTime Player' start getting flaky about opening, I find that tossing the App's saved state, as found in the 'Saved Application State' folder of the user library*, usually fixes the problem.

    A crashed state is sometimes saved as an App's saved state. That makes opening the App problematic. Eliminating the corrupt 'saved state' gives an App a fresh start.


    -----------------------------
    * User library is invisible by default, so enter ~/Library/Saved Application State in the Finder's 'Go To Folder' 'Go Menu' Dialog.
