    Has anyone had problems where you get significantly more problems with your G4 Albook unplugged. I had 2 kernel panics and a freeze in a 5 minute time period. Plugged it back in and got no problems after that. Looking for my hardware test cd but I can't find it quickly. Any ideas? I know if I send it to Apple they'll just say they couldn't find a problem. Frustrating...

    I would say flash the PRAM, and also PMU. Look them up on how to do the PMU correctly for your PB. Maybe take out the battery for a bit, because I think that is the problem, a bad battery.
