    I just recieved an g4 ibook.
    after instaling Panther i put VLC on it and checked if it worked. I left the cd with the movie in the drive and send the ibook to sleep. when i re- opened it the screen stayed black. After a while i just turned the thing off by holding the power button down for a while (there is no reset button anymore).
    when i tried to turn it on again it didn´t do anything but beep three times.
    so what is the problem?
    i have been using macs for years and never expierenced anything like this.

    Beeps are usually not good, its either RAM or your logic board:(
