    My Mom's G3 iMac (running 10.3.9) keeps on either freezing up, going into deep unwakable sleep or kernal panicking. I ran Disk Utilities and it told me that everything is A-OK. I repaired permissions and all that jazz as well. I think that the PRAM battery is out, however, b/c I keep on getting the 'Your Computer's clock is set before..." message at each startup. Would this cause the above stated problems? Thanks in advance.

    I really doubt the flat battery is causing this grief.

    Have you installed any new software or hardware recently? :)

    My sister has installed so much crap I couldn't even try to narrow it down to one specific program.

    Try an archive and install so as to keep your settings but have a fresh version of the system. Maybe look into having separate accounts for each family member too. :)
