    So I just had my first ever kernal panic. After two years of computing with this iBook, today was the day the kernal panic striked. It was going to happen, sooner or later. Rather later in this case, lol. Anyway, I had my screensaver on and unplugged my ipod from the ibook (it was unmounted) and BOOM "this computer needs to be restarted". I couldn't get a pic of it, but I did get a pic of what soon followed after. :eek:

    I had a similar experience last week. I was saving my iDVD project as disc image and decided to disconnect my usb mouse so that my son could not interfere with the computer. Luckily I had just started, but I did get a kernal panic.

    I see, yeah now that I have had one. I dunno, I feel like my mac is less of? LOL, I really dunno. It just seemed it was un-breakable... And a simple unplug of a iPod and BOOM.

    Bad ram module had me Kernel panicking consistently. Hosed some of my Apps, had to clean install to work out the kinks.

    I've had 4 kernal panics over the 7 months that I've had my iBook. But none of them recently.

    The most kernel panics I have had were the ones I had when using OS X 10.3.7 and 10.3.8. Damn, those were the buggiest system updates I had ever seen from Apple. I had 7 kernel panics in 1 month with 10.3.8. Luckily, Apple quickly updated it into 10.3.9 and I had no problems at all.

    No kernel panic has ever occured to me since I purchased Tiger (initial version from 10.4.1).

    I've had 3 since I owned my MBP. That was all on 10.4.6. Now that I'm on 10.4.7, it's rock solid (except Firefox sometimes randomly quits...).

    I'm hoping that Leopard will make my MacBook Pro as crashless as the OP's iBook...

    I have only had a fully official kernel panic once (the we are hanging type)
    It happened yesterday when I tried to boot a 10.3 install CD on my G4 1.67ghz Powerbook. Apparently they are not compatible!

    I had one the other day on my MBP. The day before the machine had been very sluggish, and had problems waking from sleep (I had to power down). It's still stuttering a bit on Expose. Not sure why. It's 1.5GB of Apple RAM and Memtest said everything was fine.

    A kernal panic is when you computer has to be restarted and you get like a message? or can it be softwear?

    I feel like the biggest noob, ive asked SO many question about macs on this site, and ive had a mac for 4 years.

    Never had one on the current machine. Of course, now that I've said that.

    I've had my Mac Mini for more than a year. My first multi-language screen came out a few weeks ago actually. Besides that, the only weird thing I've had is my Mac not waking up from sleep (or not going to bed properly :) )
