12" Powerbook hesitation
I have been doing a lot of word processing and other modest computing aon a brand spankin' new powerbook, and it likes to stop responding without any apparent cause. I type for a minute and nothing appears then I click somewhere else and the text pops up. This anachronistic behavior brings me back to word processing in the '80s, and it's not what I expect from a new powerbook. The machine gets real hot, so I have thought some that the heat is snargling the processing. A colleague with the smae machine has seen the same stuff (heat and hesitaiton), but has no clue what's up. I've heard some suggestions that Panther likes to do "house cleaning" in the background, but it ought to give me a choice of when (if this is even true).
