Hi all,

My macbook pro (10.5.8) have been odd last week. When I try to turn off clicking in the apple symbol, it will close all my programs, hide the dock but then it freezes on the desktop image, without turning off. Then, the only way it turn off is pressing the on/off button in the keyboard. In addition, after i use for while (say 2h) it start to slowing down, performing some odd freezing when I typing in word or firefox.

I tried to reset Mac's PRAM and NVRAM and I use the Disk Utility to repair permissions, but i cannot fix for of them:

Warning: SUID file "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DiskManagement.framework/Versions/A/Resources /DiskManagementTool" has been modified and will not be repaired.
Warning: SUID file "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DesktopServicesPriv.framework/Versions/A/Reso urces/Locum" has been modified and will not be repaired.
Warning: SUID file "usr/sbin/pppd" has been modified and will not be repaired.
Warning: SUID file "usr/sbin/vpnd" has been modified and will not be repaired.

Could someone help me out?

I would appreciate any help.
Thank you very much,

P.

Mac book pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    You need to repair the hard drive. Boot from your OS installer disk and select your language. Then from the Utilities menu select Disk Utility. Select your hard drive from the left side column and then click on Repair Disk. If DU cannot repair the disk you may need to get a stronger repair utility like DiskWarrior to rebuild the directory.

    Hi all,

    A friend figured out the problem. Actually, it is a issue due to printer/usb problems caused by unfinished print jobs. I uninstalled and re-installed my printer and now the macbook is working perfectly. Thanks guys for all help!
