    Linda,

    You need to give us WAYYYYY more information!!!

    - What model computer do you have?
    - how much ram?
    - how many program's do you have open at the same time & what are they?
    - what sort computer work are you doing?
    - when was the last time you restarted your computer (instead of just putting it to sleep)?
    - when was the last time you repaired your "disk permissions"?

    - Nick

    I advise you to use Onyx, or Leopard cache cleaner often.
