I forgot to mention, I have of course tried to repair permissions, but Verify Disk Permissions and Repair Disk Permissions both report "Error: Permissions verify or repair failed". I also tried verifying the disk, it reports my HD is OK. I have also tried booting from the setup disc and repairing... same error.newest black macbook, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
I have the same problem. I made clean install. Before that I did not have this. For me some programs are still working for example Toast was burning disc in freezy period
It is really terrible. Like a non MAC mac.

BLOODY SL! it WAS a nice breath of fresh air, but 2 weeks later boom. nothing works. no Microsoft office, no iphoto, particularly no safari!. i can open the programs and maybe click one button if im lucky before the beach ball starts it little devil spin. is a downgrade the solution?
Same problem here with Snow Leopard. The maximum uptime is only for 2 days before it start to freeze and force shutdown the system, pretty embarrassing though. Nothing can beat my user experience with Tiger, 3 months uptime due to Software Update.
I did everything, resets, repair permissions etc. I went through all the suggestions from the forum looking for user solutions. Some did fresh install and it failed too. I don't want to risk any downgrade suggestions like EFI downgrade, Fresh Installs, etc. I know it won't fix anything (They all reported it failed to fix the issue). So enough with user suggested fix, now, I need a reply from Apple.

Same here! Constant system hangs, constant restarts. Tried resetting PRAM, disk utilities, the whole range. Nothing seems to work. Anybody?24" iMac 2.4GHz 4GB, Mac OS X (10.6.2), iPhone; Timemachine 500GB
I seem to have complete system freeze once in awhile when the screensaver is on. I'll come to my computer and notice the screensaver is frozen and have to manually turn off and on the mac pro. It seems to get worse after a few days of use (worse meaning more likely to happen). It's horrible because I heavily rely on the computer always to be running jobs. if it freezes it ruins everything for me. Any suggestions?Mac Pro 3,1 with 2 x 2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon, Mac OS X (10.6.2), 10 GB DDR2, 2 x NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT cards, 1 TB HD and 2 TB HD, 2 Optiarc DVD
Same problem here. Microsoft Word takes forever to open, and then I start typing, and BOOM, it starts beachballing. This never happened to me before I upgraded to Snow Leopard, so I suspect some kind of software issues in it. I have 3GB of ram, and it is not acting as a Mac should.iMac Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Yesterday, Activity monitor showed Safari using 7GB of virtual memory,
everything is frozen.
CPU is going nuts, Flash Media for Safari is pegged. I hate Adobe period.
A print job then hung for tickets to a show.
I let it stand like this for 20 minutes, and then hit it off.
A moment prior, it seemed like the cache dumped itself, and let me print.
But soon as I touched the browser, bamm, right back to 7GB pin wheel.
So somewhat paranoid to do it, pulled out the Leopard disc, shut it down, and held down what ever key it said to to repair permissions from start.
I did the hardware test as well.
I had just done this earlier from applications and it said all was Ok.
But it lied. Just like the weatherman.
When done from disc, it found all kinds of cr.. wrong.
So best I can say is do it, and use Google Chrome instead.
Safari is just a pile of issues.
Apparently made for iPhone where flash is not used.
So far using Chrome, running all day and night, the activity monitor is showing
only 225Mb running 15 browsers tabs.
