    Have G4 imac now, but the power cable disconnects at the slightest suggestion that the computer might be moved!
    Has anybody else had this problem?

    If you mean the flat panel, flexible neck iMac, then I had a very similar problem a couple of years ago. If I so much as even faintly jogged the table the computer was on, it would instantly disconnect and power off.

    I seem to remember that the power cable was not fully inserted at the back of the computer - it looked and felt like it was, but with a good hard push it fully clicked into place and the problem went away.

    If this does not sort it out, then it sounds like a loose connection somewhere - possibly in the cable itself and hopefully not in the computer. Possibly you could try and get your hands on another cable and try this out.
