    Dear all

    I have encountered a problem I cannot solve on my own and would appreciate any tips/ideas, of any kind:
    1,5 years back I bought a Powebook G4. A couple of friends have had lots of hardware problems with theirs (bought at the same date) but mine has never troubled me with such problems, that is until yesterday. The laptop switches of at random. This has never happened before. All times it died, no power cord was plugged in. There is lots of juice left in the battery and it is possible to turn the computer on again after it dies. After the reboot, date and time have to be entered. About a half hour passed between the turn-off.
    Anyone encountered a similar problem? Any suggestions? :confused:

    best regards
    Johan

    It almost definitely sounds like a power issue. Have you tried resetting the PMU?
