    I'm just upgrade to Snow Leopard and it work great except one problem, when I turn of my second external screen (a TV using HDMI) I get a kernel panic and there is no crash log for it in /Library/Logs/PanicReporter.

    I've done the "usual" resets on PRAM, NVRAM and SMC however this didn't do the trick.

    I didn't have any of this problem in Leopard, so anyone else have the same problem in Snow Leopard or have any ideas of how to solve it, I would love to hear it. ^.^

    Oh, I thought I should mention I using HDMI for images and TOSLINK for audio that goes to my receiver and then to the TV
    So when turning off the receiver or the TV I will get kernel panic.

    I guess you've repaired permissions too?

    If you did a update install I'd try make a clean install too and see if it happens

    Yea, and there was no problem with the permissions.

    And I did a clean install, always good to start fresh when upgrading. ;D
