    OK so a few hours ago I had my first kernel panic on my MBP 13" 2.66 GHz. This occurred a few days after I had swapped out the stock 320GB Seagate Momentus for the 160GB Hitachi Travelstar that was in my 2009 MBP 13".

    I did the hard drive swap because the Seagate was too loud and the Hitachi was quiet and fast. But anyways once I swapped the drives, I used the Seagate as a time machine backup. I had that plugged in and my Toshiba external plugged in and was browsing Safari, Firefox and had Word, Reeder and iChat open.

    Is there any reason for concern of this? What could have caused this? :confused:

    OK. I didn't ask that, but the info in the link still applies.

    Well clearly I already did a restart. I just want to know what may have caused it. By looking at the logs can it tell me what caused it?

    I wouldn't worry about it, unless it happens again. Kernel panics may happen infrequently and don't necessarily indicate that anything is wrong with your system. If they happen frequently, then I would investigate it.

    start the "Console" application. In the top-right corner of you screen, you see a magnifying glass (Spotlight). Press on it and type console in the search box. The Console application will start and the KP log will be in the second branch of the tree on the left.
