    My rev.a iMac G5 recently started turning its self off.
    It'll just randomly turn its self off. And then it takes about 3 minutes of toggling the power switch on and off, to make it start up again.
    When Im trying to get it back on, sometimes when I press the button, the sleep light will blink on (like its supposed to) but it wont stay on (like its supposed to). Other wise I get nothing. :mad:
    Im thinking of hypnosis therapy.

    Perhaps your Mac realized that 21 posts per day was more than enough.

    I actually burned thorough an ethernet cable. To much network activate.... :mad:
    I'v since replaced it with an extra heavy duty cast iron cable. :)

    I had my midplane and PSU replaced under the extension and it took my local Apple Store 3 days to fix it with no return of the problems since.
