    My MacBook Pro locks up and shows the message "Please reboot your computer by holding down the power button" every time that Time Machine tries to run a backup. I turned off Time Machine and no more crashes... Sorta makes my 500 Gig Time Capsule useless... If anyone knows anything I should look for to remedy this issue I sure would appreciate it.

    What do the crash logs say in Console? Do they point to anything more specific? Can you use Time machine from different user accounts? :)

    I'm having the same problem and have posted in the Apple support discussion but no response from Apple yet.

    gmuller, can you answer any of my questions? The more we know about the problem the easier it'll be to fix (hopefully). :)

    backup working

    I finally got my backup working. I deleted the sparsebundle file on Time Capsule by connecting to the Time Capsule through the network. I'm doing an entire backup now. I'll let you know if the automatic backup works after I complete the entire new backup process.

    The automatic backup is working so far.

    Its working now

    I did the same thing gmuller did and my backups work fine now.

    I think the issue occurred after updating Time Capsule. For whatever reason the issue only occurred on my mbp. My fiances macbook never had an issue. Both had previous backups prior to the time capsule update. Only the mbp had issues after the update. Oh well, its working now!

    macbook pro crashes when trying to restore using time machine

    My macbook pro kept crashing each time I went into my external drive (using time machine) as soon as I selected one of the directories within the backup files.

    Thanks for the post regarding the sparsebundle file.

    I found this file in the main directory on my external hard drive just hanging out with other files.
    I moved that sparsebundle file to the desktop & the restore worked instantly on the folder I selected still using time machine..

    yay us!
