When the popcorn fails to pop. Just click it...you'll be glad you did.
so does it mean your computer has crashed, or might crash, or just needs a reboot?
It means the core of OSX has crashed. It is the equivalent of getting a blue screen of death on a windows pc. Instead in unix-based systems they call it kernel panics.
It means it crashed and needs a reboot.
The "blue screen" in Mac OS.
I hate kernel panics because they're not as "sudden" as blue screens. In windows, if theres a crash, it's blue screen instantly. With a mac, the gray screen drapes down ever so slowly and while it's busy taking its sweet time covering the screen you're thinking "damn, what the heck!". truly a bad feeling. I hope you never see another...
Lately I've been getting a blue screen every now and then...everything will stop, the whole screen goes blue, then it goes right back to normal.
No idea what's causing it =/
You're on a Macbook Pro, right?
Are you running Boot Camp? I am theorizing that Boot Camp hosed my OSX partition: after a clean format, my kernel panics (thus far) have ceased.
Ooops, no, tried to use the search and didn't notice the thread went to the macbook forum. Sorry, I'm on a Mac Pro. I'll go bother them on the other forum =)
