    Since i upgraded my system (fresh clean install) to leopard, i've noticed that it was more reliable with tiger

    a few days ago, i left my MBP turned on for the night, and since then, every night i left it turned on, the MPB doesn't respond when i came back:

    this is the legend that appears after a hard reset:

    Code:

    Based on the log you posted, something AirPort-related is causing a kernel panic in Leopard. Since I'm not sure if the root cause is software- or hardware-related, I'll just give the generic advice for solving Mac problems:

    Have you applied all the updates for Leopard? Several have been released since the initial retail launch.
    Have you verified your hard disk, and fixed any errors that were found?
    Have you ever booted your Mac in verbose mode? This gives a bunch of diagnostic information that can be useful in solving problems. (To invoke verbose mode hold down both the Command (sometimes called the clover or apple key) and the V key immediately after you hear the startup chime, and release them after text starts to appear.)

    When you booted verbosely, did you notice anything similar to what you saw in the log you posted above?
    Also, check Console for relevant error messages - these will also give me some clues as to what's going on. Console is the Mac OS X log viewer, and is located in your Utilities folder.
