    I have been perusing these forums for the past few weeks, and I am still searching for a solution.

    My macbook pro has been shutting down randomly once a week or so. It is usually when I am trying to play Farmville 2 (which I realize probably puts a lot of stress on the machine) and as a response, installed temperature monitor to keep an eye on the temperature. Right now my computer just shut down while I tried to load Farmville 2 in Safari, and it is only about 115 degrees at most in the Heatsinks when I loaded the game according to Temperature monitor.

    I tried a bunch of different things--I keep a close eye on the Temperature Monitor all day, and take a break once in a while to let the computer "rest". I only play Flash-heavy games in the morning, when the computer is still cold--and even then, sometimes it shuts itself down! It has only ever happened when I'm trying to play Farmville 2.

    A few days ago I repaired disk permissions, reset the SMP (I think) and still the computer just shut itself down while trying to load Farmville 2.

    I am copying and pasting the error report below, if this tells anyone anything pertinent:

    At this point, I'm thinking of bringing it to an Apple store when I visit family, and having them run diagnostics, as I don't know what else to do.

    115 C. or F. in the heatsinks? If C., Macs shut down to protect themselves when the temperatures gets too high and the cutoff is right around 115 C.

    In the core of a black hole.
    Stop playing farmville for a while or stop completely.

    You don't need to go to apple, you can run Apple Hardware Test yourself:

    Intel-based Macs: Using Apple Hardware Test

    I am also of the opinion that laptops aren't really made for gaming, especially Flash gaming, Flash sucks on Mac, always has been.

    It's Fahrenheit. I know they shut down when the heat gets really high, but I've already used the computer up to 150 degrees fahrenheit streaming videos, etc and had no problems. Only Flash games like Farmville.


    Thanks so much for this link, I will run the Hardware Test and see if it turns up anything.

    I had heard that Flash was terrible on Mac, but until now have had no problems with lower resolution flash games. I guess this is a sign to stop playing games!! :)


    Thanks, I'm sure it is! I'll get more work done, at any rate. :)

    You may want to check for a loose memory module. Sometimes they can pop out of their cradle and need to be reseated.

    How would I go about doing that?? From my exhaustive research into this topic, I have only heard about the possibility of bad disk permissions, or resetting the SMP (both of which I tried). Any advice and guidance would be appreciated. :)

    Actually before doing that, run disk utility and and Verify Disk / Repair Disk. From there click on Macintosh HD and Verify Permissions / Repair Permissions. Also wouldn't hurt to Reset Safari. Also, might want to make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Flash installed. Maybe even Java??? I don't know much about Farmville, but assuring that these two are updated won't hurt anything. From there, reboot your system and try again.

    If that doesn't work, then reset PRAM / NVRAM by rebooting your computer while holding down the command, option, p and r keys at the same time. Hold keys thru two startup chime sounds and then release.

    If that doesn't work, create a new system user account and then check to see if that worked.

    Post update after these steps to let me know.

    Your Macbook is telling you to play a better game i'm afraid.
