I have a macbook pro running OSX 10.6.8 on a 2.66 intel core 2 with 4gb ram.
I've had it for about a year, and had very few problems, always minor and fixed with a reboot, until this morning.
I went to start up this morning, and it took longer than usual. When i started typing, it lagged pretty heavy, and even plugged in keys i didn't press. (a 4 would pop up every time i hit r, stuff like that). the mouse lagged as it moved across the screen.
When i shut down the computer, it restarted itself without any prompt. The only way i could get it to shut down permanently was to force it.
I opened it up in safe mode and it works fine. No hardware issues with typing, it works at a good speed, seems normal. When i got back to regular mode however it gets all messed up again.
Any ideas or things i could try? Thanks
