on my macbook my fans started going crazy so I checked the processes in the ativity monitor and something called quicklook was running at 124%. Any idea what it could be?

Quick Look is a Leopard feature

I'm still on Tiger but from what I've read, Quick Look is CoverFlow in the Finder using too much RAM. Quick Look is just another way to inspect files in the finder without opening another app, and it can be invoked with the space bar when you have a file selected in any view mode. If you can do without this I'd only use it sparingly as it probably is mainly eye-candy and shouldn't compromise your cpu usage IMHO.

Do you use Transmission (bit torrent client)?

bump...

I was eating dinner and I heard the fan turn on which means something is crunching some huge numbers. I hop back on the computer and the screen is white with a spinning rainbow ball of death. No log-ing screen (I set my computer to lock the screen when away). I wait 5 minutes and nothing happens so I'm forced to reboot. Not sure what process killed everything.

This is happening more often. I'm worried. Any ideas?
QUOTE Thanks
