Whenever I try to open up StarCraft II, the updating screen appears for a few seconds on 50%. The window then disappears, but it is still shown as open in the dock (light is on under the icon). How can I fix this problem?

What Mac do you have? Which version of OS X? Open the Console application (in Application/Utilities) and see if something suspect gets written in the logs when this happens. – Agos Dec 5 '10 at 14:49
Any luck so far on resolving the issue? – Ryan Wersal Dec 31 '10 at 2:56

Have you tried a full re-install of Starcraft? Have you ensured that you have all updates, particularly graphic driver updates, are installed?

Additionally, you can also find several troubleshooting steps at OSX Daily which includes a few close descriptions of the issue you described.

I would add this as a comment but I don't have the privilege yet, but I would suggest also asking here.
