    My Intel 20" iMac just crashed - curious as to WHY?!
    My iMac (20" Intel C2D) just crashed...

    Here is the 'panic.log' file contents:

    Thu Feb  8 16:14:35 2007

    Is this a common problem?. This is the ONLY time this has happened?. To add to this, last night my mains lead accidentally got tugged out of the back of iMac whilst it was running, but upon rebooting, I did a disk verify/perm repair.

    It's a computer. It will crash sometimes/eventually.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    This is evident. However, I was simply curious as to WHY... if anyone can throw any light on this, I'd sure be grateful, although this is not urgent.

    Surfwax was pretty much dead on. Computers will crash and there isn't always a concrete answer as to why a computer crashes. The log file you posted won't help the users here and really won't help most users period.
    The reasons are almost infinite.
    You may find the following articles enlightening, but again there really is no way to find out the entire reason behind every crash:
