    For the last week or so, I've been receiving the translucent, grey, reboot prompt screen that you get when the computer experiences a kernal panic. However, there are a few strange things surrounding this problem:

    -It is ALWAYS preceded by a drastic decrease in my network speed (via AirPort)
    -USUALLY occurs within minutes of waking computer from sleep
    -USUALLY occurs while Azureus is running (may be coincidence as i have it running the majority of the time my computer is on)
    -ALWAYS goes to they reboot prompt screen just as i click on the AirPort icon in the top right corner in an attempt to turn it off and back on again
    -if i go to AirPort connection through System Preferences i can reset the AirPort but the screen hits within minutes anyways

    Anyways, just been finding this kind of weird and was wondering if anyone could help out. I was thinking of running a defrag, as that has helped in the past. When it has helped in the past though, it was with less frequent panics, and this seems to be something different, perhaps signs of a larger problem?

    This really sounds like a failing Airport card.
    I had this happening to me before and that is what Apple replaced.

    Turn off your Airport and connect directly to the router via cat5
    and see if you still have a problem.
