Thought I'd start a new thread so more people can respond to this specific issue. I was talking with someone in my eMac sleep question thread... Anyway.... Yup, I've got kernel panic going on. On my eMac 10.2.8 system. I did a few things that the article suggested. I looked for any third party software of any kind and nothing jumps out. I did find something odd in my login items. Got rid of it, repaired permissions and re-started the computer. I had the computer in the shop last week for a power issue (for which they found nothing wrong) and when I got it back home, I suddenly have items that I either dumped YEARS ago or never had in the first place! Like safari, imovie, itunes to name a few. What the????? Did they do a reinstall? Everything was intact as far as my old files, bookmarks, mail etc... I just got rid of alot of stuff that I didn't want on here. What else can I look for to remedy this kernel panic issue? It doesn't happen at all when I'm on the computer, ONLY upon waking. Also.... what is Apache - found in services folder? Can I dump that? And, Mind Vision?? Thanks for any help!
