I've had this machine for a while, and when idle instead of just logging out it'll reboot sometimes. I really have no idea what to check or what to do, any suggestions are helpful, if you need any more information let me know.

When i leave my MBP on and walk away, it will reboot itself. It's setup to only send me back to the login screen once it's been idle but it physically reboots. I don't know how i can be more specific then that.

ok ic....but have you check your hardware manually , or something trouble has been damage your machine , for examples , you ever using your mac for along time , it can make your machine overheat , and then the machine isn't working properly .....or maybe you should re install your mac using mac os x ,

Two things to look for when random rebooting occurs:

1. Overheating = check the machine temps and Fans

2. Memory= A bad or marginal memory module will cause the machine to reboot randomly. Use memory check software.

Regards.
