Photoshop CS 6 hangs when saving

Photoshop CS6 constantly hangs when saving. I have to reboot my computer every time. I've updated all the software, I've done a HD Utility check, cleaned out the cache, and still happens. I can't get a crash report or anything because when I go to force quit it won't do anything, hence why I have to reboot.
This is starting to get annoying (and time consuming) as it happens almost every time I save.

Does Photoshop hang, or the whole computer? (even if Photoshop hung, there would be no need to reboot)

And unless the OS or hardware are having problems, ForceQuit has to work.

Have you installed the 13.0.1 update?

What OS version are you using?

Photoshop hangs, and when I go to ForceQuit it then hangs the entire computer.

I'm running OS 10.7.5

OK, that indicates some sort of OS or hardware problem.

Even if Photoshop is hung, ForceQuit has to work if the OS is working correctly.

My first guess would be something wrong with your hard disk.

I've run the HD utilities and repaired the disk (if indicated), I'm just not sure what else to do or who else to contact.

Well, the fact that the system hangs after trying to do a force quit means that something has to be wrong with the OS or hardware. Maybe time to take the machine in for more complete diagnostics.
