Hi,
Details of Mac below..running OS 10.5.8
Problem - 'sometimes' the mac just heats way up, the fan roars and if I don't put it to sleep it will just crash. I'm only using Safari and iTunes about 99% of the time. I think it is linked to Flash - which I can't update as my G5 is not intel...but that is just a guess. If I restart everything returns to normal.

Yes the iMac G5 will heat up & fans get loud when watching videos.

Some of the heat issues could be due to a dust/fuzz buildup inside the computer...so it may need to be opened up & cleaned.
