    my MB freezes after screensaver runs

    screen just turn all black and you have to press the power button to restart

    I tried to deactivate the screensaver but to no avail

    now iChat crashes every now and then, especially when Screen Sharing

    I run Onyx and hard drive seems to be ok

    I repaired the HDD using the disk utility, but still the problem persists

    what should I do now?

    You must have installed a wonky third-party screensaver? Happened to me too before until I deleted the offending screensaver.
