    Hey all - I am constantly running into an issue where my desktop on my macbook "freezes" while everything else (including the finder) works fine.

    I wouldnt even notice except if i try and click on my desktop - it is completely unresponsive. This is a peculiar problem! It might be happening after i drag files from a remote machine onto my desktop using my Fetch FTP program...

    Obviously a restart fixes this problem - but i'd like to know why it keeps happening in the first place.
    thanks guys!

    4GB RAM, was that customized through Apple or DIY upgrade?

    I'm assuming you encounter the problem every time you use your MacBook? Create a new user and play around there and post back if you have the same problem.

    no - not every time. just often enough that it's irritating.

    Ok, still create a new user and see what happens.
