    It could be several possible issues.

     

    1)  Your G5 iMac could be overheating.  Depending on which model, you might be able to open the back by yourself (not on an iSight model), and using a can of compressed air, youcould blow the dust out of it.

     

    2)  The power supply could be going bad.

     

    3)  The hard drive could be going bad.

     

    There could be several others.

     

    If you have the original, came with the iMac when purchased new Install Disks, you can try running the Apple Hardware Test to see if it can determine any hardware issues.  It can't always find the problem.

     

    Good luck.
