Hi,

My computer hanged when I just loaded skype and safari( only 1 youtube tab).
I could move my mouse but other things just dont move for very long. approximately 10 mins. May I noe is there something like ctrl-alt-delete in windows on mac? like I can stop it from hanging. I dont wish to force shutdown too often. Thanks.

Its a mbp 15 inch i7 anyway.
QUOTE Thanks

Command Option Escape will allow a Force Quit of an App that hangs - give that a shot.
Are you on 10.6.3?

Might be worth downloading and installing this just to be sure all is OK.
