Hello,

Yesterday I experienced my first Kernel panic on my MacBook Pro (ref in signature) while I was turning it off. I didn't install anything new in the last days and didn't have anything plugged in usb.

Since a few days, I also notice every now and then while the computer is on, a sound similar to the one it does when I turn it on (when you press the power button), the HD turning on maybe. I don't know if these events are related.

I bought the laptop on March 7, 2008, meaning that it is still under warranty for a few weeks. Do you think I should bring it to an Apple store before it get worse?

Kernel is copied here under.

Thanks a lot for your help
Sams
