    Had a strange problem with my 2.5ghz Penryn wasn't sure on the type of crash it was strange,

    Black screen slid down like a curtain then a window in the middle asking me to power down hold the power button and restart, was a strange request never seen it before.

    I am asking because is it built into leopard or has anyone else experienced a black window sliding down the screen then asking to restart the machine?

    a Virus... silly question to ask but I am unsure seemed very generic for a crash!

    Laptop was very hot at the time, had thunderstorms all day and the battery was recharging aswell as photoshop open with a very large layer'd PSD.

    Would appreciate your input many thanks.

    That'll be a kernal panic – you can learn a bit more about them here.
