Apple OS X 10.5.3 Update and Freezing Keyboard

Posted in Apple, leopard, Mac, MacBook Pro, osx by fernieville on May 28, 2008

Apple on Wednesday released Mac OS X 10.5.3, a recommended update for all users of its Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard operating system that includes general operating system fixes that enhance the stability, compatibility and security of your Mac.

Reading the bullet points I don’t think that my freezing issues are fixed…but then again if it’s Airport causing it:


  • Improves 802.1X behavior and reliability.

This might fix it.

We’ll see.

Mail hangs with Leopard 10.5

Posted in Mac by fernieville on January 31, 2008 logoHas anyone noticed how much Mail hangs with Leopard? I have three imap accounts, and somehow Google just hangs, constantly circling around as if downloading new msgs. And if I say “delete” this msg, and move to read my .Mac msgs, it reappears when I return! The synchronization of the imap account with Google is so slow that I have to wait a minute or so for it talk to Google and delete.

The odd thing is that it’s not completely incapacitated when it hangs…only hanging to emails coming in and going out. I can still read msgs, but I have to quit to send something out or get new ones. When it does hang I can’t just say Quit; I have to Force Quit. This is annoying and I hope that 10.5.2 fixes it.

Any suggestions or fixes for this?
