    Macbook Freezes
    Hi I was hoping with a Mac I would not have the computer hanging or freezing. However this seems to happen a lot. I have a new macbook aluminum and paid for the most expensive one to get the extra memory.

    This seems to happen when I use office. org and thuderbird.
    and even if I go to FORCE quit and never really quits.


    Any ideas? THank you

    I am in Phuket, Thailand. We don't have Apple Geniuses here. I bought it at a home electronics store.

    ah, forgot to check, sorry about that.

    Is it just those programs in particular that it freezes on or does it just randomly do it while you are doing just about anything.

    I think hangups can happen when a computer is getting too hot, do you have it on a hard flat surface for good ventilation?

    just trowing some stuff out thats possible to see if anything sticks....

    My memory of the time I spent in Thailand is that the heat and humidity was very detrimental to electronic equipment as dirt and dust stuck everywhere. I don't know if you're using your MacBook in an air conditioned area or not but make sure that there is plenty of room under and around the machine to allow it to properly cool.

    As for the freeze ups when using Open Office and Thunderbird, make sure you have the latest versions installed. I don't use OO but I do use Thunderbird as a news reader and sometimes to gather mail. No problems with it here.

    Regards.

    ah I never thought about that. I have a base for it so it is elevated but no air conditioning. Urgh. I am plugging in the fans on the base now!
    Thanks for the reply.
