    Hey Everyone,

    So today I was using Safari on m MacBook Pro, and when I went to switch tabs, the mouse completely froze up and I got a popup message that said that I needed to 'Press and Hold down the power button to reset the computer' My question is...what caused this error or whatever? And, is it something not by Apple? It doesn't have an Apple logo or anything like that on it, but when I did turn my MBP on again, I got an "Error Report"...One of those message boxes that sends info to Apple.

    I've had my MacBook for two and a half years and have gotten that twice. I think they were the only times that my entire computer has crashed.

    That's a kernel panic, in which the operating system itself crashes and must be restarted. It's usually caused by badly written 3rd party software.
