    Unusual. I'm starting to think you may have a hard drive going south.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Not necessarily. Run the Apple Hardware Test and see what it comes up with:

    Well I performed an regular hardware test as well as an extended one and no trouble was found. What I don't get is all these issues started when I installed snow leopard. I was using tiger before.

    It only seems to slow down where I have a few things open at the same time. Where before this was never an issue. However, my main concern at this point is just trying to get the iTunes to work properly because I use this mac to DJ and I need it for tonight. It will play songs but it always pauses for a few seconds on every single song at 16 seconds and 24 seconds.

    Here is the latest log:

    It's definitely a snow leopard bug..... and frustrating as the list of safe to ignore permissions from apple leaves it as nothing more than safe to ignore! Argh

    Sorry, just had to add that to this thread!

    When you upgraded to Snow Leopard, how did you go about doing it? Did you just pop the disc in and let it do its thing, or did you do a clean install?

    If the former, you may want to make a full backup to an external using something like SuperDuper. Then, boot off the Snow Leopard disc, erase your drive using Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. Then, do a clean install. After the install completes, you'll be given the option to use Migration Utility to transfer files from "another volume on this Mac". At that point, connect the external drive and do just that. That will bring in all of your old documents/data/applications.

    Do you have to use a external drive for SuperDrive? I would assume so if that's the case I need to buy one.
