My Problem

The Mac kept having spinning beach balls and locking up hard. Sometimes the computer wouldn't boot, just showing the folder with a flashing question mark.

My Problem

My Mac would not go to sleep when I closed the lid. In fact it would get really busy and overheat. Disk access also got really flakey. It worked but I spent a lot of time watching the spinning beachball. I replaced the hard drive but could not get it to format. I had put it in my backpack one time w . . .
