I've been experiencing the very same, and then upon restart, a permissions repair reveals serious directory damage to the disk, fixable only with Disk Warrior.
I tried everything to sort this out... and think I may have cracked it when I unplugged my empty iPod dock! It was an old 3rd gen. dock, and I think the iMac didn't like it sat there empty.
Things seem to be working ok for the moment, touch wood. Is there anything other than keyboard / mouse on your USB ports?
Hope that helps,

I have a 1 Firewire & 1 USB port filled (both peripherals not powered at the time). Strangely though permissions are not effected.
I was wondering if it was due to the amount of RAM installed (1GB) and photoshop trying to capture the RAM it needs to run therefore causing the lockup..?
I am still waiting for my local Apple Store to get the new RAM modules in..iMac 2.4GHz 1GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 20, 2007 6:19 AM (in response to Richard Ellis1)Not to dismiss your problem by any means, I thought I'd report my experience since I'm running PS CS3 as well. I'm on a 24" iMac and PS CS3 has been running well for me.
In addition to the keyboard and my Epson all-in-one printer (plugged into the back), I have a Logitech cordless mouse whose dock is plugged into the keyboard, and I have a USB 2.0 Maxtor hard drive plugged into the back.
I am getting general problems when I try to use my Belkin usb hub and when I use my usb card reader for any length of time, but I can't see that they have had any effect on running PS CS3.
Like I said - not to dismiss your issue - I just thought it might be helpful to share about my peripherals etc.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 11, 2007 4:33 PM (in response to Richard Ellis1)I'm having exactly the same problems.
I've just disconnected all of my unattached cables and Im gonna see how it goes.
Failing that, I've got an extra 1Gb of RAM on its way to me - so I'll see if that helps!iMac Core 2 Duo (24" Mid 2007), Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 12, 2007 2:32 PM (in response to Richard Ellis1)Have you looked inside system.log?
I have the same type of hung (connecting with ssh everything works, just the GUI is frozen) opening iTunes.
Just after the GUI hunged the message log starts with:
** ASIC Hang Log Start **

Currently Being ModeratedSep 12, 2007 4:25 PM (in response to Eugenio Sighinolfi)Looked through my system.log.
Got quite a few of the ASIC Hang Logs.
No idea what they mean though!
PS: Just found this:

I have a 20" iMac with 1GB of RAM and sometimes when I'm browsing pictures on Bridge and double click one to open it in photoshop my computer hangs. No dock, no menu, nothing, I have to turn it off.
Have you find a solution?imac & mac book, Mac OS X (10.4.10)

It seems that the problem is the imac software update v1.1. CS3 was running great before the update.Mac Book, iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 19, 2007 11:27 AM (in response to Richard Ellis1)I have the new iMac and using CS3 design premium and have had not one issue at all no freezing no hanging no crashing. Very strange I am reading all these posts about issues with the nee iMac and I have had not one issue! Mine is loaded from finalcut to protools and not one issue.imac intel aluminum, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 19, 2007 2:44 PM (in response to memoflores.com)Something strange is going on!
Mine was crashing all the time before the update - was having to hard reset 2-3 times a day.
Yet after updating to imac software update 1.1 it seems fine, haven't had 1 crash!iMac Core 2 Duo (24" Mid 2007), Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 19, 2007 4:04 PM (in response to Richard Ellis1)I use the CS3 package professionally and have no trouble but it needs more than 1GB RAM, imo. I wouldn't go near it with less than 2GB and am considering doubling that as my current files are huge and my machine is sluggish with them. IMO there is no such thing as too much RAM for Illustrator and Photoshop. Even InDesign likes more than 1 to be totally happy.iMac 2.1ghz Superdrive, Mac OS X (10.4.10)

Currently Being ModeratedSep 20, 2007 5:44 PM (in response to Richard Ellis1)I've been running the CS3 master suite and the only problem I've had is with Flash. Though Flash is a notoriously buggy program and freezing wasn't the only glitch I've had with it. I'm also on the older white intel imac so the 1.1 update isn't an issue. But so far my experiences with photoshop on the imac have been just fine.
I don't know if it matters, but right now i have my keyboard, mouse and intuos tablet connected to the computer USB ports and my all-in-one canon printer connected to the keyboard. They all seem to be working together happily.24" intel imac, Mac OS X (10.4.10), it's white and glowy
