    For some odd reason, when I try to put my Mac to sleep, it decides to dim the screen and show me that "You need to restart your computer" message in 8 languages.

    Kind of worried about this.. I usually keep my Mac on sleep when I am gone. Any ideas?

    I'm suspecting a hardware problem. Is it still under warranty?

    Yeah.. I just bought it in August. Would this just be a "leave it with them, they fix it" situation, or "they give me a whole new Mac" situation, you think?

    Hard to say. I've never had a problem that required a complete replacement, but sometimes these kernel panic issues can be pretty insidious. So you never know.
