Wiki has some Slow Performance suggestions => http://wiki.logos.com/Mac_Troubleshooting#Slow_Performance - one cause for Beach Ball is paging - wonder about memory usage ?

Looking at logos files - noticed visual highlighting in use - potential for some slowness.

Looked at console messages for slowness interaction(s) with other program(s) - noticed Clean My Mac Helper Tool - found review => http://www.softpedia.com/reviews/mac/CleanMyMac-Review-108641.shtml - potential during cleanup to freeze other processes.  Noted tool crash on Jan 13 at 10:50 am.

Console messages also shows many repeating messages for VMware Fusion - found vmware forum with similar messages => http://communities.vmware.com/message/1365274

Also noticed some vmware messages on Jan 13 at 9:42 am about auto release just leaking.

Noticed Time Machine backup not running - destination not available.

Microsoft Entourage also getting some errors.

Bit bothered by login window error messages - found Apple forum => http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=10843555

Unless you have a ton of RAM and multiple processors, it is probably best to not run L4 Mac and VMWare Fusion (or Parallels) at the same time, as both are resource hogs.
