Please Help...
I would let my brand new Mac Pro with new monitor naturally sleep, I come back to my station only to click open to a blue screen, that reads "HDMI no signal"... So hit the power button on the computer to restart it and then I get the "subject" error message. This was happening frequently before, then it stopped, so I thought I was through the weeds... Apparently not, because it happened today, and it was the last straw.. Hoping someone has an answers!!!???

What you're experiencing is known as a Kernel Panic. If it's happening frequently, chances are you have a hardware problem. You should run the Apple Hardware Test from your System disc as described in this article.

If it doesn't detect any issues, you should probably run First Aid (verify and repair permissions) from Disk Utility on your system drive.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Thank you much for the response!!!!! I did everything you suggested, and there was no problem with the hardware, and all my disk utilities were verified, and "passed"..... Um. so I hope that all is well. I dont really have any closure on the matter, should I???
Thanks Again!!

That's odd. It would have been gratifying to have some evidence of disk structure problems or a hardware issue. I'm not sure that we've found the root cause of the issue.

Have you run Software Update from the Apple menu to see if you have any updates pending?

Sounds good. Maybe you were just behind on updates (let's hope so!).

Could be - it doesn't sound like you had a kernel panic that time.
