    Hey guys.. my mum had a Mini for a while and it started turning off but leaving it for an hour or so it would turn back on again and work fine for a week or so

    Now it turns on, chimes and turns off again! Do you think it could be the PSU? :confused: I don't have any spares to try it and can't seem to get a hold of one :(

    I could be a heat problem, an intermittent fan. I don't know where you'd get a spare power supply. Try taking it into an Apple store and let them troubleshoot it for free.

    If it was heat do you think it would at least get to the apple logo from a cold start? :confused:

    Sounds like a logic board issue to me. Might be RAM as well, but I doubt it is power related.
