    It should be fine with those apps. How did it freeze up? Did it eventually start working normally again? Did it display any message or text? Did you have to reboot? :)

    Yes

    the power mac shut down and restarted itself but it froze twice in a row, the mouse was the only thing responding but not able to click no error code or mess.

    Maybe try some of the suggestions on this page for monitoring what may have happened. :)
