    As the title states, a power failure just occured. Is there anything I need to do after i reboot, just to make sure everything's fine?

    you'll be alright, no reason to fret. The computer came up. Unless you work working on something you should not see any data loss,

    Ok, good to hear. Just don't understand what " the computer came up" means. Thanks for the reply. It restarted by itself, as I set it to. Good to hear. :apple:

    If your Mac continues to work exactly as before, you have nothing to worry about.

    Not really. You could do verify your hard disk (not verify permissions) in Disk Utility, but the likelihood of damage happening to your hard drive on a new Mac is stupidly small.

    As said, not really anything to worry about. I've had to force-power down my MacBook Pro quite a few times with Leopard (freezes etc...) and it's never damaged the hard drive.
