    Hey all I have a big problem. Even with very litte applications open, my macbook freezes and i have to turn it off and then back on. Also sometimes when I pull out my power cord, it freezes instantly and sometimes it reboots by itself. Is there a solution for this issue? I tried repairing disk permissions but no luck.

    Insert the OS X Install Disc 1 and hold D on boot. Run the hardware test.

    Sounds like it might be bad RAM, have you upgraded anything recently?

    I haven't but a couple days ago, I went into an apple store and sent my computer because of fan issues. After i got my computer back, it seems that the freezing/rebooting happened more often. Ill try the hardware test later when i find the OS X Install Disc

    They may have screwed something up ... consider taking it back to them.
