    Tell a joke. Lots of people laugh at jokes. :p


    Seriously now... It's called a kernel panic, it's the equivalent to Windows' blue screen of death.

    You haven't told us much about this. Does it happen all the time or is this the first time you have seen this? Which MacBook is it? Are you just having a problem turning it off? (You should be able to hold down the power button for ~10-15 seconds to turn it off, if that doesn't work unplug it and take out the battery (unless it's not removable (which is why it would be nice to know the model (DETAILS!))))
