    Default Getting rid of a stuck iCal alarm

    I've got an iCal alarm window that can't be gotten rid of - I mean...not by any method I know short of restarting the machine. I can move the window around but when I hover the mouse over it to try to close it or otherwise dismiss it all I get is the spinning beachball cursor. Tried relaunching Finder but that didn't do anything.

    It's not getting in the way of anything. I can still work in all of my apps, sync my iphone. It's just an annoyance at this point.

    What process would I need to kill to get rid of this window and how would I go about doing that?

    Having the same problem and seems like i've had the problem often perhaps since Leopard. Regardless i have no idea how to rid the problem other than re-starting the computer (macbook black).
    Also, just curious...this thread says there are 13 posts. However, i can only find the one from Gern Blanston. What's up with that or where can i click to pull up the 13 posts? Thanks much,

    Question

    I have the same problem. It consumes 70% of CPU too. Did you find a solution?

    Never found a proper solution - I had to reboot. But I haven't seen that happen again since, either, so I still to this day have no idea what caused it.

    If it does happen again a screenshot would be lovely in troubleshooting help

    If it happens again I'll be sure to provide that. But I should point out that there was no error message of any kind - it was just a standard iCal alarm window that simply refused to be dismissed by any method I could think to try.

    Can you launch Activity Monitor when that happens and screenshoot it?

    ( or "top -u" which would do mostly the same thing in terminal)

    I had this happen and using Activity Monitor I found a process called ical helper, just close that process and the window went away.
