Typically it's an application hang. It can be a million different things, but if it's happening often, it's most likely an issue with the file structure on your HD. I would run Verify/Repair and Verify/Repair Permissions in Disk Utility. If that doesn't solve it, take a look at Console (Applications => Utilities) and look at the system log to see if there are any indicators of a failing daemon or app.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
