Try running the maintenance scripts manually, nor sure if this will help but its worth a try.

3. Press Return.
4. Type your Admin password when prompted, then press Return.

All three scripts will run in sequence. There is no visual feedback while the scripts execute. You will know they are completed when the Terminal prompt returns.

You can also run the scripts individually. For example, to run just the daily script, you would type the command:

* sudo periodic daily

in step 2 above.
Also do you have any particular app or widget open when this occurs?

If you have alot of widget, try cutting down on them. Better still get rid of them.
