About 90% of the time iCal will freeze up the whole system, except the mouse, when I use the two finger swipe between months. iCal freezes even with or without any events in the calendar and it happens no matter which User is loged in. I sync via MobileMe, but discontinued the sync and erased all events to see if that made a difference. It didn't. I've deleted iCal caches in the Library/Calendars & Library/Caches/ folder thinking that might solve the problem. It didn't. I find it hangs when in Month & Year views. Day & Week seem to be ok.


I'm currently running a new MacBook Air that had Lion preinstalled when I purchased it. I did migrate my programs via a Time Machine backup when I set up the MBA from an iMac that was also running Lion. I'm out of ideas any sugestions would be helpful. Thanks.

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7), 13" i5 1.7 GHz, 128GB SSD, 4GB RAM

    Just adding that I'm having the same problem, using iCal on a new MacBook Air.  Swiping causes iCal to freeze and the system to lock up for 5-10 seconds.  It happens in both full screen and regular windows.

    Same problem. How can I do a clean install of Lion without System disks?
