    After 7 flawless months with my MPB (2 with Leopard) some weird things have started happening. Twice in the past week I've gotten Kernel Panics. One just about a half-hour ago. I'm not sure what to log, but here's what I found on my system log.

    All I had really been doing was printing Omni Outliner documents before this happened (Safari and Mail were also open).

    Lately things have been weird. My keyboard has stopped responding for a few minutes at a time randomly (but not regularly), and I've notice my computer randomly wants to try to eject CDs (no CD is in there though).

    Due to exams, I've got to get through at least next Tuesday before I can take this into a store. Does anyone have any idea what might be up? Any help would be appreciated.

    I hate to burst yours and every other mac-lover's bubble of security but that is a virus almost without a doubt... the way to check and very possibly fix the problem is by going to apps>utilities>disk utility. Choose your Macintosh HD and click " Check PErmissions", when that's done, click on "Repair Permissions". This SHOULD clear up any problems caused by faulty permissions. Check back in w/ me when u've done this.:apple:

    There's another button that says simply "repair disk", try that... but those errors sound like tampering with system files... you know what that means, either hackers (doubtful), or a virus.

    Yeah I actually ran disk repair from the OS X disc before I got on the forum. No significant errors from what I recall.

    Running a virus scan now... bleh

    I'm pretty sure this is not the case but just to be checking, a virus on a NTFS formatted XP Boot camp Partition wouldn't be causing these problems correct? I doubt I would have a virus there as I actually did have the walls of defense up like crazy on it.

    Well that changes some things... I think you or somebody did something on the computer that interacted with the irrepairable files. This isn't too likely but possible, besides that, something got bent or broken in the computer.
    PS: Windows viruses have no possible way to interact with macs, so the problem isn't with bootcamp.

    Also, if none of my suggestions answer your problem, then call apple. The service is fast and reliable. They helped me with a different type of Kernel error a few years back and I had it solved in a jiffy.

    Whoa! I tink I may have found your problem... has your comp's bluetooth been on? Because this is the only error pertaining to an actual problem area. If it hasn't been on, then it's back to square 1, but definately check it out!

    Alas, it's been off. Used to have a mighty mouse but ditched it about a month ago.

    I did go ahead and decide to remove the bluetooth devices from the system preferences and remove it from the status showing up in the menu bar, just in case. So we'll see.

    Drat, well........... I'm sorry to tell you this but it seems your engine is broken and you don't have a wrench and your not a mechanic. It looks like that computer will need to go to the shop... BUT FIRST CALL THE PEEPS AT APPLE THEY CAN ALMOST CERTAINTLY HELP YOU!!!! Otherwise it's off to the shop:(.

    REVISION: If you have the patience to do so, unplug and deactivate all blurtooth devices and run your computer for a week or more. Errors = shop, no errors = don't trust bluetooth any more:D!

    Oh well... thanks for the help. I'm absolutely swamped until next Tuesday with finals, so hopefully everything holds strong until then. I might actually have some free time tomorrow night so might give Apple a call then.
