Hello everyone. I have a macbook pro early 2011 running Mac Os X Snow Leopard. When I do not use it for a long time (like for a night) it becomes unresponsive.

I mean when I touch the touchpad it lights up and I see my desktop and dock. But the menu bar is gona. And none of the dock items or harddisk icons on the desktop work. They are clickable but that does nothing.

That situation makes me restart the computer by pressing and holding down the power key. What should I do?
QUOTE Thanks

how long do you leave it before you hold the power button down?

that is strange, the only thing i would say is if your in the postion is to copy all your work off and re-install snow leopard and see if it does it then.
