Would really appreciate some help here please! Working away merrily the other night, when I decided that I needed a multiway power socket in my room. Trouble was, my G4 iMac (flat screen) was plugged into the power socket. Logged out, shut down, waited until the hard drive stopped spinning, then pulled the plug from the wall. Ok no problems so far . . . . . Plugged in the new multi-way extension socket, and restarted my iMac. Once it had fully booted, I noticed - no dock. Went to check the main drive (via icon top right hand corner of the desktop), and pulled up my finder window . . .. lo and behold . . . no icons in the left-hand side of the window. All my Mackintosh HD files were there (Documents, Library etc), but no left-hand window icons (Documents, Home folder etc). I've done all the usual stuff, rebooted, cleared out some of the old junk on the HDD, run disk utility etc etc, but still no dock or Icons!!! Looks like all my docs and music etc are available, but I can't shut the iMac down either now - nothing happens when I go to Log-Out or Shutdown! Any idea's guys please??? Thanks in advance!
