but still getting the random freezes and errors as per the above in the logs.MacBookPro, Mac OS X (10.5.8), 2.53GHZ MBP 4GB/500GB | 2GHZ MB 4GB/500GB | iPhone 3G 16GB |
Currently Being ModeratedSep 10, 2009 12:25 AM (in response to pingudownunder)How much free space on the startup disk?
Control or right click the MacintoshHD icon on your Desktop. Click "Get Info". Under the General tab you will see Capacity and Available. *Make sure there is at least 10% available disk space, 15% is better.*
If you have any peripherals connected like a printer... disconnect and restart the Mac.
Are you running anti virus software by chance?
What is this application? *EarthDesk Core*
I have a feeling that is isn't compatible with 10.6
Go here. http://www.techspot.com/downloads/3807-earthdesk.html
It just says Mac OS, not 10.5 or 10.6
Delete that application and see if that makes a difference.

On the 100GB Startup Disk, there is about 25GB free.
Yes, have tried with no peripherals and no anti-virus.
Earthdesk - its Version 5 of Earthdesk from http://www.xericdesign.com/earthdesk.php, which is indeed Snow Leopard compatiable.
I have the same issue with a newly-created account, i.e. even with just Apple apps (e.g. Safari).

Currently Being ModeratedSep 10, 2009 1:01 PM (in response to pingudownunder)I have the same issue.
With Activity Monitor open and Disk Activity selected my disk activity spikes all during the freeze.
When the disk activity stops the freeze stops.
Ran Disk Warrior with no luck.
Console has no messages just before or after the freeze.
Thanks ... Ken

Currently Being ModeratedSep 14, 2009 8:20 PM (in response to pingudownunder)OK so my computer became unusable after a while. I ditched the user account, created a new one, same problem.
This morning I completely formatted and re-installed Snow Leopard. Same random freeze every 30-60 seconds. I don't have the same error in the log, but i do get this guy before every freeze (followed by nothing for 30-60 seconds):
/System/Library/CoreServices/CCacheServer.app/Contents/MacOS/CCacheServer127: No valid tickets, timing out
I don't get this on my other Macs (MacBook, IMac, MacMini) which means its definately something to do with the MBP. I read that some Unibody Macs don't play too nicely with SATAII drives so I've added the jumper to the HDD to run it at the slower speed, no improvement.
Googling suggests CCacheServer has something to do with Kerberos tickets ...

Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2009 12:33 AM (in response to pingudownunder)I've now replaced the hard dive (a 7200rpm Seagate 500GB) with a 5400rpm WD; even though the Seagate wasn't reporting any SMART errors both internally and when retested as an external HDD.
Problem solved - no hangups. So am closing this thread.
A poster on the forum (link below) also suggests disabling the Sudden Motion Sensor also works ..

I am experiencing the same issue, only with web browsers. Safari seems to hang when I navigate to a page which uses flash. I have tried Safari, Omniweb, and Firefox and gotten similar results. I have another machine which is not experiencing the problem. Also, created a new user which has the same issues. I have the most current version of Adobe Flash.
Seems like a software issue. I ran Cocktail and used "pilot" to run all service scripts, empty cache, etc, which seems to fix the problem intermittently (1 hour or so) after which time the problem surfaces again.
Any ideas?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.1), 2.33 Core 2 Duo
Currently Being ModeratedOct 28, 2009 7:08 PM (in response to pingudownunder)This is clearly a services issue. Couldn't find the command line to solve it, so I simply installed a third-party service (go to folder) in the hope that it would somehow force a rebuild of the services database or something like that. It worked. Some people report that for them, something else worked, like deleting a service from /System/Library/Services and rebooting, but I really wouldn't do this since it's full of Apple Services thay might be important.Macbook Pro 15'' 2.4GHz, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
