    I just got my new Macbook SG 1.1 today. Im UK based.

    I was just using the machine, just finished installing most apps. I was using Safari, looking at and it just turned off.

    I clicked on the trackpad and there was no sound.

    I then tapped the power button and it rebooted.

    Has anyone else had this issue?

    Looks like I might need that AppleCare! :(

    Don't panic. Just a crash. It happens occasionally. Probably nothing to worry about

    If there is no power, there is no click, since it's a vibrating electromagnet. Here's hoping it was just a glitch! Good luck

    Happens under Windows when heat becomes an issue as well. This baby throttles like crazy!

    This is my third mac portable product and I have never had one just shut off. I am now using my rMB and have done everything to push it and heat it up and not one shut down or auto-reboot of any sort.

    You may have a problem which needs to be addressed by the Apple store.

    I have never had one just shut off either but would still wait till it did it again, at least one more time. Could have been an isolated event.:rolleyes:

    I can't recall having any of my Macs suddenly turn off like that. Personally, if it were me, I'd take it back.

    No need to take it back in right away, if it happens again and again there is likely something causing it. Just open up activity monitor and check the system logs.

    I had an application crashing my MacBook Pro a couple times a week, removed it and everything was fine after that.

    If you can't see anything weird in the system log and if it happens over and over again it can be a hardware thing and then I would take it in.

    Thanks everyone for there feedback.

    This is my 5th mac portable machine, I have been using macs since 1998.

    I don't think I've had an issue like this either. I wasn't pushing the machine at all. The machine was charging, I was using Skype and safari.

    If it happens again it will be going straight back. I'm now considering the additional Apple Care, as I have 60 days to buy it.
