    How do I tell what RSS this is? Starting to be REALLY annoying!
    I've had my MacBook randomly shut down a few times in the last days. Several times I was in Pages (which I think I HATE, b/c I can't find any auto background save and keep losing my work!).

    BTW, my MacBook was new from the end of Dec. So ~ 1 1/2 months old.

    I found the other threads on this. I'm about to download the fix from Apple for one of the reasons...heat sink I think. Like I know what that is...!

    But I've seen other probs- logic board?

    So how do I guesstimate what the prob with mine is?

    TIA,

    I found this linked to a thread here from 6/2006. My MB is 6 months newer than that. Should I consider doing this or is it irrelevant for me?

    i've noticed 2-3 times now that MB has RSS when I closed it. I was assuming that it would just go to sleep, not crash and lose my work. Grrrrr. Plus it lost my screen background pict with it. I don't get it.

    Need your help please anybody, lol!

    Ive always found that its good to keep my pc or mac up to date so give it a go. If that doesnt solve it perhaps a hardware check is in order to see if the ram is ok etc.

    Failing that, take it in to a local apple store and get them to look at it

    Sounds like you've got a 'one-off' fault, unrelated to the previous RSS issues that were resolved last year. It could be the PMU or battery. Best people to ask are Apple.

    What's:

    Ono-off fault?
    PMU ?

    Thanks

    Give Apple Care a call. They can check with you what could be the exact problem. They'll probably suggest you keep your Mac up-to-date with the Software Update among other things.

    That's 'one-off', not 'ono-off'. I mean a manufacturing fault that only affects one machine, i.e. yours.

    PMU is the Power Management Unit. It controls the fans, the auto-cut-out when overheating, and the battery.

    it means that the page you are browsing has a RSS feed.

    This is an innocent question; I'm confused what RSS has to do with this post?

    I know what an RSS is (or at least I know what it is with regards to the internet) but what does it have to do with faulty MacBooks?

    The original poster thought that maybe RSS was causing their MacBook to crash, and MacTime didn't know what RSS is/
