    Recently my mac's been having some trouble, which is running 10.6.8. Everytime I wake it from sleep, whether it's for 8 hours or 3 minutes, there's a chance that it will simply crash. I open it up, a quick flash of light, then silence. I have to press the power button twice every time in order for it to register, and even then there's a chance it'll simply crash again. Only after about 5 times of crashing and rebooting will it finally reboot all the way. I've lost papers and notes due to this and would love to know what's wrong with it.

    Does it do the same thing in a newly-created User Account?
