    So my MP has been acting oddly, waking itself up with whirring fans for no reason and such.

    I did some diagnostics, and this came back with Disk utility:



    will that Fix easily with a DVD boot and repair disk? Or am I in for something a little more heavy?

    The DVD should fix it.

    Either boot from the DVD and use Disk Utility, or boot into single user mode (hold CMD-S on boot) and type fsck -f at the prompt. Keep running the command until the Mac stops reporting 'The file system was modified', then type reboot to ...err.... reboot. You should then be fine

    I've had this problem before also!

    It seemed to be fixed when I followed the advice like tersono said.

    Give it a shot.
