    hi i have a mac osx version 10.4.8 with intel core duo as processor
    yesterday i installed window xp with sp2 pack with bootcamp. everything run smoothly and i was actually playing games on my newly installed windows for a good while. then i went to sleep, left the computer in sleep mode...
    then this morning when i woke my computer up it just kept on turning on and off. like it would have that window loading screen, then the welcome screen... then the whole screen would flash into this blue with some words on it, it was too fast to see what it was, and then my computer would turn off, reboots it self, tries to load up windows again, and the blue screen of death again, turn off, tries to load... @__@ over and over
    what is going on!!! can anyone help me T_T

    Stuck beween a rock and a hard place
    Did you try a hard reboot- meaning when in Windows, hold down the power button, give it a couple of minutes, and then try it again. Push comes to shove, go back to OSX, delete partition, and redo.

    Also I have found that I can't seem to wake my MBP when it goes to sleep in Windows. I just keep it plugged in, and use the Control Pannel to keep the sucker from going to sleep.

    I agree with Lovesong... When I have random XP problems the best thing to do is just wipe the Windows partition as start from scratch (I don't have that much on my Windows partition...). From OS X open the Boot Camp Assistant program and follow the steps to delete the windows partition. After restarting you can run the Assistant again to reinstall Windows.
