Im really not sure what the issue is on this Mac


If your using something like Firefox its seems OK, stable


If you start using Photoshop and other apps that require a lot of moving around in folders for finding and saving files it will lock up


Its not instant, so with a large PS file you might get 10-20mins then it will hang the OS as your saving and requires a 'button press' restart


The mac will not close down manaully at this point, I need to force background applications to quit and then it will go to light grey blank screen but doesn't shut down


I've replaced the hard disc and reinstalled the OS and get the same result


Any clues?


Its a 2 x 2.66Ghz Dual-core Intel Xeon

11Gb memory

1 TB hard disc running OS 10.6.8
