I'm pretty sure this will wind up being an isolated incident for me, but I thought I'd document this anyways: * 10.7.3 * 2008 MacBook Unibody, 8G RAM * CPU goes to 200% and stays there, syslogd is 175% * Fans kick up after a couple of minutes * System becomes unresponsive - Can't open Console (bouncing in dock only) - Can't open Activity Monitor (bouncing in dock only) (I use iStat Menus to watch... stats in the... menu bar) - Beachball appears - Mouse freezes/locks in place * Reboot vía power button (sad!) After rebooting, there's nothing of note in the Console for the time period in question. Oh well. Did a Google search and not much to see. No logs -> nothing to troubleshoot.
