Time machine/time capsule "finishing back up" issues

Hi all and thanks for taking the time,
I recently bought a 500 TC and after a lot messing around i have the thing working, well near working, perfect.
The problem is, everytime it does a back up, which sometimes it has nothing to back up, it never finishes the job. In the end all i get is time machine giving me the "finishing back up" remark but the dam thing never actually finishes.
I have left it in the above state for sometimes hours just to see of it would finish and alas no joy!! Also, if i try and do anything else on my Macbook, while time machine is working, the "beach ball of death" apears and freezes my computer. Hence, everytime my Mac backs up i have to crash my computer which is annoying to say the least.
I did a lot of reading around various problems when using time machine and TC but can't find any solutions but lots of problems. TC is the worst apple product i've ever brought, it's been nothing but up hill trying to get this thing to work just like it says on the box.
I'm wondering whether its the TC or simply that time machine doesn't like my computer for some reason.
Does any one have any thoughts on this or even greater a solution to this problem.
Macbook, Leapord OS, 4G RAM, 160HD, iphone, inano, ipod, TC
