    There was a power failure in my area a few days ago, something which hasn't happened in years!

    I restarted and ran the disk utility disk verification programme from the Tiger startup disk to make sure everything was OK - thankfully it is.

    Do I need to clean out my cache or do anything else considering that I've run the disk utility to verify my hard disk?

    I also read in a newbie guide about running FSCK, but I'm not sure if I need to do this or not. My computer has been working OK, but I'd like to know for future reference what else I have to do, if anything.

    Thank you in advance.

    You are going through a lot of hassle... just turn the mac on. If it boots it boots, if it doesn't then you can worry about running a file checker.
