    macbook stopped working this morning. everything froze- i get spinning circle of death, but cursor moves.
    running maveriks.
    ran all disk permissions, repaired disk etc and nothing seems to work- did this after booting to recovery- multiple times.
    boots fine and works in Safe Mode, but in normal mode, loads up and then almost immediately freezes

    If it works in safe mode then a setting or an app that's running at startup is causing the problem, in my opinion. Try going to Settings - Users & Groups - Login Items and then disable anything that is listed to see if the problem gets resolved. If it does, re-enable each item one by one until you discover the culprit.
