    Hi !

    I'm running 10.6.8 on an older macbook (maybe 2007 version). About two weeks ago it restarted for no reason. One week later this occurred again and since then has become a more and more frequent occurrence.

    I can almost guarantee it will re-boot if I do one of the following:
    - open to many applications or internet browsers
    - plug something into the usb port after it's been on for awhile
    - unplug my power adapter (even though battery is at 100%).

    I've tried a few things such as holding down OPTION+APPLE+P+R when restarting. I've also reset the SMC. And I removed spotlight function.

    Some days the macbook will stay on all day and be fine. Others, I can't even open up an internet browser. Yesterday I worked on it for approx 8 hours in a row, left for 2 hours and when I took it off sleep mode it immediately re-booted on me. I purchased extra RAM years ago so it shouldn't be lack of processing power.

    Below is also the most recent CONSOLE report. here: http://pastebin.com/D5udyp8J

    My console report is about 50 pages long from the last day so I've only included the most recent stuff.
    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Have you tried PRAM and SMC resets? Have your tried to restore from latest backup or a backup from just before the problem started?

    What does the Hardware Overview say in System Report?
