    I have a g4 yikes/panther/500mb/old desktop. When I have any app left open doing nothing or performing a job, like burning a dvd or cd for a long period of time without any mouse clicks, the computer crashes. I get the greyed out panther 10.3.2 screen with the circle power button sign saying I have to restart. Then I lose, wasted, my 1/2 burned dvd only to start over, same thing over again.Seems mostly related to toast 6.0.1 All apps are updated to panther, including mouse. Not sure about something called application enhancer, APE, in sys prefs? Otherwise, when I am working normally, surfing, emails, typing etc. it's all fine. Any Ideas??

    This was reported as a problem in Toast under Panther before...

    Don't know what version they were using when they had the problem. :confused:

    They reloaded the OS several times, and kept saying the machine was crashing. Seemed they also immediately reinstalled toast. :p


    From the sound of the problem, it almost sounds like the machine is trying to use the screen saver/system sleep.

    Can't remember if a Hot Corner to prevent this will work or not.

    where the concrete to dirt ratio is better
    try just running the app version of folding. the computer will not sleep, and you don't have to worry where your mouse is...

    here you go

    have you heard?

    I was emailed about something in the system startup folder may cause this. anyone else heard this? Like iLock puts something called PACE in that folder??
