    Angry I think my mac is screwed?
    This happens on and off. Before I go to sleep, I just shut the lid of my macbook. Usually in the morning when I go on it, I lift up the macbook lid and its fine. However, occasionally when I open up my mac book lid it makes a scratchy sound, I think its the ard drive. And it never ends..... and when this happens the swirl of death appears and I have to hard reboot my machine. Anyone experience the same problems?

    Boot the machine with your install disk and run Disk Utility. Verify the hard drive. As a precaution, back up your hard drive to an external drive as soon as possible.
