Hello everyone,

I have a 2009 13" MacBook Pro and have not had any trouble with it in 4 years until tonight.

I experienced a "crash" in that my MBP locked up and would not respond. I turned it off and then back on and the same thing happened. I then tried it again and no better. After that i turned it off yet again, unplugged it and waited about 20 minutes.

After that it is running fine again. No more spinning beach ball, frozen keys and frozen mouse cursor.

Do you think i should take it in to the Apple Store and have them take a look at it or do you think it just got "hung up" and is now ok?

Thanks so much for your input. Always most appreciated!

best to you,

rick

It would have been great if you told us which version of OS X you're running so we could better advise you what to do.....?

You may have a failing hard drive which you can check for yourself. Let us know.
