    Okay, so I was using Photo Booth to take some pictures, and I had a Safari window in the background. So, I took a picture and then my computer locked up for a few seconds. I didn't get anything, not even a spinning beachball or a kernel panic message, then it just turned off. Nothing like this has ever happened before, so I was pretty scared something was broken.

    I'm running Leopard 10.5.1

    Fans working? Could have overheated...
    There are actually a lot of things that could happen. Could have just shut down because it wanted to. :p Just keep going and if it happens again maybe there is something wrong. I dunno. How long was it on prior to this?

    It wasn't on very long, and the fans have been working pretty well. The hard drive checks out as well. Hmmm....
