Before you lose your Mac laptop
Authored by: brazeagle on Mar 09, '11 07:34:52PM

I am almost loosing it back to windows,
My MAC POWER BOOK, 3GB RAM, 500GB HD INTEL BASED with Snow Leopard and WINDOWS XP installed.
Wonder if anyone experienced the following:
Both in WINDOWS or MAC:
All applications and browsers i.e. OFFICE, Firefox, Safari, etc and specially annoying when using WORD for Mac, it stops responding for about 8 seconds and the comes back up, this is for everything, even the mouse (usb transmiter - wireless) needs to or three clicks before it does anything.

Do I need to re-install all my O.S. again?

Thank you,

It could be that you're triggering the Sudden Motion Sensor; this will disable any disk access for a short time when the MBP detects any shock or sudden movement.
