    Hi, in the last couple weeks I have gotten this error message at least 3 times: "You need to restart your computer. Hold down the Power button until it turns off, then press the Power button again."

    Most recently, I received the following Crash log (below, hopefully I pasted in enough information). Can anyone please tell me what it means? Thank you!

    Are you sure, that this is the kernel panic report, as it normally looks like this:

    Well, I didn't realize that I need to copy the panic report to save it when I originally got it. I tried to retrieve it from the Crash Log, but it won't let me paste the whole thing in here. Is that the right information?

    What Mac OS X version do you have?
    Normally a kernel panic report can be found in Console (Applications / Utilities) like shown below.

    It can also be found here:

    Then it is probably too long, but you can just copy the first three parts up until your System model name.

    I'm using Snow Leopard. When I go to the Log for DiagnosticReports, all the files end in .crash not .panic. Is that why it doesn't look right? Does that message to restart definitely mean it's a kernel panic?

    If it was this message you saw, then it is a kernel panic:

    Maybe wait for the next kernel panic and make sure to copy the report, as you only seem to have a crash report from Word.
