Conventional wisdom says this happens when you experience a kernel panic, which you would be experiencing likely due to (a) some corrupt software you have recently installed or (b) bad hardware. To test (a), uninstall anything you have added since before you started experiencing this. In the extreme case, re-install Mac OS X. For (b), time to take it to the Apple Store!My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade

It turns out that some software a friend let me borrow is pirated. Is this the problem?
