    I have a power pc 20inch imac with overheating issues. What happens is it will start overheating and force itself to sleep and wont wake back up until it cools down (this is all verified in the console).
    It's repair history is as follows;

    1. logic board replaced (overheating persists)
    2. new fans installed (overheating persists)
    3. currently at repair center with stumped techs.... :mad:

    I'm stumped & quite frankly a little ticked off about this. Any questions or comments about this issue are welcome. :) :apple:

    What kind of iMac do you have? I know you said PowerPC but there are G3, G4, and G5. Once you tell us which one maybe we can help.

    It must be a G5... They run extremely warm. We had a faulty sensor in one of ours and Apple replaced the thing. Do you have the AppleCare?

    I had apple care for the replacing of the logic board (due to overheating) then I had to get a special customer satisfaction code for the second repair (fans) because the apple care lapsed. Because it all goes back to the original issue (overheating) it's been covered.

    Was your G5 running hot too?
