    Hey guys, for the past 2 weeks ive had the strangest problem with my powerbook g4 (revision C). Its been shutting off without me hitting anything. I would get the are you sure you want to shut down your computer now? dialog box and i would hit cancel then a few minutes later it would do a forced shutdown. Sometimes when i try laucnhing an application it will say it cant because the computer is shutting down. I have no idea what the problem is, any help would be appriciated.

    Best Regards,
    Evan

    Start with the normal stuff.... zap pram/nvram, reinstall OS X, then call AppleCare.

    And repairing permissions, slightly less drastic than an OS install.
