    Global freezing
    Just in the last week or so (I cn't remember installing anything that started it) my Power Mac has been freezing. I'm running the most up to date OS and it seems to be Safari that initialises it. Curser still moving about fine but everything else, keyboard, windows, spaces etc, totally dead

    You should give us more details - exact OS X version, computer model that it lists in the Blue apple menu about this Mac, etc.
    Do you have the CD/DVDs that originally came with the Mac? Depending on your model, you should have one that says Apple Hardware Test. Run the hardware test.

    Love the thread title. Just one note, cursing at the cursor will not help.

    It's a Mac Pro 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon with 12Gb ram running 10.8.4. I don't know if global freezing generates a crash report but I could have a hunt

    Incidentally, I don't think it's a hardware problem. I've run Techtool Pro and it's repaired permissions and found some other minor things to fix but reports no hardware glitch

    It all depends on what's causing the issue. You can look through the Console application (/Applications/Utilities) and you might find something in there.

    Apple Hardware test doesn't duplicate all the tests of Techtool Pro - and it's free.
