    I seemed to have developed some serious issues with my MP in the past half hour, it has KP twice on me. The only thing I did before the KP was install the Steam client for Mac. I am trying to run hardware diagnostics by pressing and holding down the D key before the grey boot screen, but its not working, is there a trick to this? Any suggestions, other then getting rid of the steam client, for things I can try to troubleshoot?

    Seems that unless your OS was installed from the grey discs that came with your Mac, you don't get the MHT, too bad, I didn't get the grey discs with my used MP.

    I've fixed permissions on my boot drive, might reset NVRam next......

    I have the Steam client on my Mac, but haven't updated in a while.

    Edit: Just updated. I'm on 10.6.8, Steam client built: Feb 12, 2012, 14:27:43
    Steam API: v012
    Steam package versions: 1329175982 / 1329175982

    ...whatever that means. Anyway, it all seems fine, so maybe it's something besides Steam? Hope this helps somehow.

    I am on 10.7 with the latest steam client and have no issues.

    Have you added any new USB devices lately?

    Seems after I repaired permissions it's ok now, very strange. It was mostly finder that was the issue, I had no finder bar across the top of my screen and chrome would fail every time I tried to open
