My mac locked up. That didn't take long. |
Update: crashed again! (but this time the power button doesn't even work! woo! time to pull the plug.....)
what kinda mac do you have? running os x?
yeah, i was reading top down. my bad.
my mac has been known to ensure blood shed and horrible pain. It's a monster. Imonster.
When we got our first iMac at work for support purposes, it crashed when it first booted... that was impressive.
At my school they bought an iMac for video editing. When I first went in to use it, it froze up about 3 times in a row. I asked the teacher what was up, and he told me it was overheating and had to sit for a while!!! Stupid convection cooling systems, don't even work WHEN ITS HOT OUT! I told him they should only be allowed to be sold in Canada.
Your teacher probably made that up. The operation conditions for even a convection cooled iMac are well above 100 degrees

Well, he also said someone in one of his classes has one at home that does the same thing. So if it's not the heat, I guess it could be that Mac operating systems just suck and freeze up a lot on their own...

Re: Force Quit / Force Restart
Don't use the shift key - you don't have an iMac/G3/G4. You just press Command Option Power and you get the cute startup chime.
Also, note that this is more likely to restart than the power button - if the system crashes the power button's ignored, but not the keyboard.

Dang.. I guess I'm more used to Mac OS X, but when I was running 9.1 it never crashed. Not that I can remember anyway. You may want to jump into the Extensions Manager and switch over to a "Mac OS 9.1 All" set, depending on what's been installed.
Of course, sometimes Macs just crash. I don't think it's more or less often than Windows 9x screwing up, but it's got a worse reputation for it.
Is the VNC server still officially "beta"? I remember it being buggy/crashy last I used it. Then again, that was 6 months ago.
