My MBP suddenly went blank. The computer was still running but the screen just went black. So I just held the power button and restarted the computer. Everything was fine, although it seemed as if it was the first time I was starting it up. Spotlight indexed all the content again.

I ran disk permissions and it gave me a long list of actions performed. I ran disk permissions again (sometimes I do things twice...maybe I have OCD ). However, the log appeared similar, just 1 minute after the first. Anyone have an idea why?

Here is the log:

Read this and ignore those messages. If it bugs you, deselect the show details button:-


Mac OS X: Disk Utility's Repair Disk Permissions messages that you can safely ignore

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
