    I've had my SR MBP 2.4GHZ since it was released, and it's been great. It's been running like a champ, and I couldn't be happier that I switched. That is, minus one thing. Ever since I upgraded to Leopard, the thing has been locking up and saying that I need to restart it because of an error. I'm used to Windows with it's blue screens or some kind of error that I can look up, but with this there's nothing to see so I can't figure out what's wrong.

    It doesn't seem to happen when any particular program is open or anything. Can anyone help me diagnose the issue?

    Do you get a kernal panic or does the system stop responding?

    Also, check out the internal temperatures of the unit. I have heard that overheating leads to restarting to protect the system from burning....

    I'm not sure what kernel panic is. That gray screen slowly fills from the top, and there's a window inside the box that says it died and needs to have the power button held. I use SMCFanControl and it usually hovers at around 40 celcius. It used to run cooler than that before leopard, but it's not that bad so whatever.
