I would recommend that you clean the cache for InDesign from the following location: Macintosh HD/Users/Username/Library/Caches/Adobe InDesign/Version 8.0/ and then drag the en_US folder to the desktop. Any corrupt data in the InDesignSavedData file will be removed this way.
That worked. Thanks so much for the help. What should I do with the "en_US" folder now? Should it stay on the desktop or can I delete it? I see that another one was created in the "Version 8.0" folder.

I'm having the exact same problem as MissionRich, so I thought I'd follow your advice. My only problem is that when I go to Macintosh HD/Users there is no file/folder for my username. I have a Shared folder and a folder for the other computer on our network, and that's it.
BTW, I don't know how to get the hardrive icon on my desktop with my new MacMini, so I searched for the Users folder, made sure it was rooted in the Macintosh HD folder, and went from there. Could that be part of my problem?
I finally did a search for the en_US folder, thinking I could get to it that way, but there are several copies in various locations, none of which are in the Caches path you mentioned above.
