    I just did a software update on my 1.67ghz Powerbook. As always its running in clamshell mode hooked up to a 30" ACD. After the required restart I got a kernel panic before the OS fully loaded. I powered down and could not get it to restart past a faint grey screen. There was no spinning wheel or ball.

    I unplugged it from everything and rebooted and it finally booted but I'm wondering what happened.

    The only updates I allowed was for my airport and some security update. I'm still running tiger 10.4.11.

    The only thing new was a pair of speakers. Oh and it is 4 days out of Apple Care. :)

    Edit: Now I'm all plugged back in and running ok. Some odd behavior that ultimately led to reboot and then discovering the new software update push, was while downloading from iTunes or using the internet at all, my mouse would stall. I am on a wifi connection but the connection is 6" from my powerbook so the signal is strong.

    Open your Console app, go to /Library/Logs and to PanicReporter and see yuor last Kernel panic if you can find some info, sometimes you can figure out which app is the cause.

    Well the only thing under panic.log doesn't show yesterday's date. Also, when I came home last night my computer was awake. I put it to sleep and woke at 4, it was not awake. At 5:30am it was suddenly awake again.
    Here is that panic log
    And this is the software updates I performed yesterday

    I use a USB MX Revolution.
    But I did have a KP caused by this in October due to me moving the USB dongle while everything was on. I think I confused the system. The log doesn't seem to show the KP on 3/1. Oh and I don't have any drivers installed for the mouse. I just plugged it in and it worked. In my experience Logitech software and me never played nice together so I refrained from actually installing anything this time around.

    i guess the last panic was not logged because it happened way before the system was loaded. just keep monitoring the situation and if you get a panics again you might finally find the problem when studying the logs.
