InDesign CS2 problem - tools won't work

Hello all,
InD CS2 is not working. When I select a tool - ANY tool - and click in a document, only a "hand" shows, and the tool won't work. (No text entry cursor, no drawing boxes, nothing.)
- Have had this a time or 2 before. As I recall, quitting/reopening, and/or repairing permissions and/or a restart solved the problem. Nothing is working this time after several tries.

I tried starting a completely new document, but same problem occurred.

This is a fully compliant copy, registered and activated, purchased soon after it came out (about 2 yrs ago?). It is also installed on my Pismo, so I can work on a document with the other computer, but would like to figure out what's going on.

The only thing significant that I've done recently was to download and install the current Acrobat 8 Pro 8.1.2 updates (yesterday- downloaded quickly, took about 15-20 minutes to complete the actual install!).

Because my computer is older, I frequently close apps I'm not using to be sure there's enough memory for whatever I'm doing. - Doesn't make a difference with this problem.

Any ideas???

OS 10.4.9, 1 GB SDRAM, 800 MHz PPC G4

Well, my face is red. After posting this, I tried InD yet once again, and it was OK! (It must have been something in the cosmos.)

Still invite any ideas about what might be happening when it acts up.
