I just got the game installed and while playing it, it locked up computer and forced and a hard shutdown.  Any suggestions are quite welcome.  Not sure I want to keep playing if this is a known issue.

It seems more like a problem with your computer. No other person seems to have suffered from such an incident before, if I recall correctly.

I guess it could be but my laptop has never locked up before like that.  Is there anything to check for or tips for running the game?  Like closing all other apps?

Close them all.

It only crashes in full screen mode.  I think its a graphics issue.  Something the developer might want to look at.  The original macbook i think has shared video.  That could be it.

Graphics issue for sure.  In windows mode, not full screen mode, it crashed mac mail and firefox.  With Goo running, imbedded videos wouldn't load in Firefox.  So there is a graphics issue when using a lesser graphics chip or shared graphics.  Like the original macbook 13.
