    We need more info
    What computer are you using?
    What OS are you running?
    What other software do you have running at the time?

    As MacDawg so eloquently put: more info is needed to properly assess your problem.

    Also have a look at Applications / Utilities / Activity Monitor and don't forget to select SHOW ALL PROCESSES and sort by CPU usage.

    Do any processes stand out in their CPU usage?

    Also Utilities/Console.app and checking out the logs (all messages/console messages/system.log and the hang and crash reporter) might pinpoint something causing problems.

    If you are using Firefox, turn off IPv6 ...

    CMD+SHIFT+1 or 2 or 3 or 4

    It saves a picture onto the Desktop.

    Or use Applications / Utilities / Grab.
