    Have you used Disk Utility to repair permissions on the drive?

    Hang as in OSX hang or the application hang?

    If the latter, try to see if there are any application updates for that.

    Are these the problems?
    1. heat trapped problem
    2. OS problem
    3. Motherboard chipset/graphics card problem.
    4. HDD damaged sectors

    Possible solutions:
    1. change fan, add fan + work in ac room
    2. Format & re-install from disc (backup first)
    3. donate away macbook unless under applecare warranty.
    4. HDD easily replaced

    It's not as big a problem as with the PowerPC machines, but are you using cheap RAM? Low quality support chips on RAM boards have been known to cause problems, as well as lower prices.

    You can check this by removing any RAM that was not installed by the factory to see if the problems persist.
