Why is Pages (iWork) periodically not letting my enter text unless I click away from my program to my desktop (or other open program) and then back to Pages?

When using Pages (iWork) on my iMac, every few minutes it locks up and will not let me type anything on the the page. If I click outside of the program (my desktop, or another open program window) then click back to the document, it works again. Why? [more inside]

bad screen! bad!

My mother has an Acer LCD (model AL1715) hooked up to her Mac Mini. The warranty expired 3 days ago, and last night it woke up after being asleep for about 45 minutes with a black line across it - the image divided in such a way that the image has rolled - that is, the bottom is at the top and the top at the bottom, split not quite equal halves. Disconnecting and reconnecting don't work, powering off and back on don't work, changing the display mode on the mac doesn't work, and we can't find a reset button. Acer doesn't answer tech support phone calls (endless holds) or emails. Any ideas?

problem with page load delay in safari

I am having an annoying problem with Safari. Say I scroll down a webpage and click on a link that takes me to a new page, when I hit the back button, the original page loads from the top and can take up to 5-6 seconds to jump back down to the original place. Do I have a preference set wrong?
