    Have a look at these suggestions:-

    iMac G5 (iSight) Fan and Sleep Problems - Mac Forums

    And when you say idisk utility, do you mean you booted from the install discs, and ran Repair Disc from Utilities after bootup? If not, try that also.

    Thanks I rubbed the bottom and it was full of dust and the fan behind too was blocked. after a good clean of the air intakes it seems to have solved the problem.

    I guess i brought some dust from India with me in the move
