Hi,

When you start up the Air, iCal automatically runs and then you get locked out?

Or is it you cannot restart because iCal will not let it?

Hi Mike,

After the start up all the applacations that automatically open start up. I can clear them all by pressind the red dot in the corner except ical Alarm which when i move my mousse over it, it shows the spinning colour circle.. and i can not move or open anything else... its like its waiting for this to open before it will let me do anything...

Hi,

Ok, can you check the Dock and make sure all the applications are not showing a Dot under the icons?

Can you open iCal, open and find that date and delete that entry? If it is gone, iCal Alarm will not load.
