    I was working the other day and my G5 turns off from nothing, no andvice, like when you unplug it.
    I have a UPS, so thats not the problem, I thought it was an isolated issue, but today it happen again!!!
    My Machine is a DP 2.3 bought in Agoust.
    What can I do, I have a lot of work, I cant stand a day with out it, so take it to apples is not an option.

    Thanks!

    In my experience, an instant shutdown is often related to a cooling problem.

    I would have thought Power Macs could go much hotter than 60°C. Maybe run the Hardware Test CD that it came from to check if it picks up anything quirky. :)

    Have you got anything plugged in that could be doing this? Do you have a certain app running each time this happens?

    I've seen the processors in my dual 1.8 PM go up to 80 degrees C. 60 is nothing. I'd give Apple a call. If you have purchased Applecare they will come out to your house and fix it. (you have to ask for that part)
