Basically as the title suggests, Notes on my Mac Mini has started to behave very strangely and refuses to stay closed.


I have tried Force Quit, Killall via terminal, leaving the Mac off over night, removing all the notes accounts and numerous web searches….but it still refuses to stay closed, restarting after about 3 - 4 seconds and stealing the focus.


I have an up to date (software wise) 2011 Mac Mini, running OSX 10.8.3. There have been no software or hardware additions recently….


I'm stumped !


It's so bad I have had to type this in Notes itself and then copy it out as the focus stealing is driving me insane.
