If it does, you have either a hardware problem or a systemwide software glitch of some sort. If it doesn't, you have a software glitch in your own account, and you have migrated it from the old drive to the new one. Disable all third-party login items in your account and see whether the problem disappears.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 5, 2010 10:32 PM (in response to eww)Well I went ahead and did everything from scratch, formatted the drive and installed SL fresh. Not doing a migration either I just want a fresh machine. But I'm still getting stalls even when it is fresh....
Take note this is a new HDD as well.
I also performed a hardware test and it reported everything was fine... help anyone?MBP Late 2009, Mac OS X (10.6.5)

Currently Being ModeratedDec 21, 2010 2:56 PM (in response to jubalde)The information posted here is worthless. My computer was fine until I ran diskwarrior the other day to degfrag it. Sorry for the typos but I'm not going to wait the five seconds every 15 seoncs it now pauses while I am typing. The computer now pauses, hangs and spins every five- to - ten seconds. There is no way we are the only people in the world that are having this problem. I'm not going togo buy a new hard drive, or reboot or change this or that, what is the real solution people? And Jubaide... did you ever get any help? Thanks.MacBookPro, Mac OS X (10.5.8), Don't remember
