    Hey I have a brand new 24" iMac

    2.8g C2D
    2g RAM

    and I was trying to sync my KRZR motorola phone with my imac. Now I had just upgraded to this year's imac and my old imac I never had to put in a bluetooth pin on my phone to connect to my computer before. I never set one up so it came as a surprise to me when it popped up and I didn't know what my PIN for my imac was. Since I didn't know I said to stop retrying on my imac to connect to my phone. When it did that everything froze and a dark black drape effect from top to bottom happened. Then I got that dreaded multilanguage popup box that says you need to restart your computer manually. So basically by not connecting or authenticating it hard locked my computer. I don't know if I'm going to even try syncing my phone to my computer now as I don't want that to happen again.

    Kernel Panic? I don't really know what to make of this report. Here it is in case any of you can tell exactly what went wrong by looking at it:

    It's normal to get asked of a pin when pairing two devices with bluetooth. Usually in the case of a computer and a phone you will get the PIN showed on the computer: all you have to do is to copy that in the phone. That will avoid someone nearby to pair with your devices. Try pairing from your imac and not from your phone.

    About the kernel panic, it seems in fact to have something to do with the bluetooth interface. It may be a one time thing so don't be afraid of trying again. Should the kernel panic come regularly then you may want to investigate further.

    Anyway I suggest you update the OS to the last version, maybe they corrected something regarding bluetooth too.
