Currently Being ModeratedDec 11, 2010 6:17 PM (in response to cam2099)Similar situation for me a few weeks ago...
From Applecare Support Rep.
Relaunch Finder. If not resolved then
Restart your Mac and reset the PRAM.
How, you ask...
As soon as you hear the chime sound press and hold the following 4 keya
Command, Option, P, R
Keep holding them until a couple seconds after you hear the chime repeat itself.
Your machine will reboot refreshed.
As to what's happened. If it happens once, it's a fluke basically. If it happens frequently resetting PRAM is supposed to resolve the problem though I didn't get a specific explanation.
I know there is a tech note somewhere on Apple Support site with the official procedure for resetting PRAM, you can search for it if interested.15" MB Pro 6,2: 2.8Ghz, 500GB, 4GB, Mac OS X (10.6.5), iLife 11, FCE 4.01, iDevices, ATV2

Currently Being ModeratedDec 17, 2010 1:59 PM (in response to cam2099)I've only seen that when I had some large photos and I suspected QuickLook was choking on them. I believe I came up with that conclusion after looking at the system log in Console and noticing filenames. Do you see any error messages in the system log that refer to QuickLook and specific files?Mac Pro, MacBook Pro, iPhone 3GS, Mac OS X (10.6.5), PowerBook G4 15" Al, PowerBook G3 FireWire, PowerCenter Pro, PowerBook 160
