    Early 08mp once in a while my mp finder will stop responding. If I try a force quit to relaunch the system will become unresponsive. If I try to shut down or restart it just won't. So in usually doing a hard reset by pressing the power button. Any tips are much appreciated ,thanks.

    If the problem is just with Finder.app, you should be able to Force Quit it like normal, or option-click the Dock icon and select "Relaunch". If this causes the whole system to lock up, you might have bigger issues.

    Have you tried resetting the PRAM? Not entirely sure if that would fix it but it's worth a shot.

    This happens about once every two weeks or more. Finder is never able to relaunch itself. It always locks up when trying.
