G'day irishsti,

I don't exactly understand what you mean by power surge when you say:

I have my Mac Pro connected to a power surge
... that literally translates to a surge in power. I can only presume you mean that you have a Surge Protector between your Mac and the mains...which is an excellent idea.

Quote from Wiki:

A surge protector is an appliance designed to protect electrical devices from power surges and voltage spikes. Surge protectors attempt to regulate the voltage supplied to an electric device by either blocking or shorting to ground voltage above a safe threshold.

It is important for every computer owner, if they wish to protect their computer from power surges/spikes, to buy and install a surge/spike protector.

I surge protect my iMac and suggest everyone do the same.

In your case there was no surge/spike in power to your Mac Pro so, if you haven't lost any data and your Mac Pro's working fine - I would recommend just keep an eye on things.
