I've had the same thing for the past week or so. Normally, I have my PB hooked up to a monitor and keyboard. When I take it from my desk and use just the PB (plugged in), it randomly goes to sleep even more frequently (every couple of minutes). I notice it first shuts me out of iChat and then within 30 seconds or so, goes to sleep. I've reset the power management, but that didn't help at all. Any suggestions?
I am having the very same problem. It began this week.
Now every so often my Powerbook randomly goes into sleep mode, when I click on the mouse she wakes up.
I am at a loss as to why this is happening, but found this thread
Looks to me like a fiasco and a nightmare.
I'm thinking it could be the main battery inside the computer causing problems with the temp readings and causing a safety feature to kick in, but that's a guess and I do not know know what to do to fix it yet.
I'll get back if I can figure it out.
I have had the same problem lately, in detail like you. I'm also suffering from the "bridget Riley" symptoms with vertical lines appearing on the screen. I have 3 now, some people have 67!!!! This only happens to PowerBooks 17", G4 with serial numbers starting W85. You can read more about it on

Just thought that the 2 problems could be connected? Check your serial number ( "About this Mac" and click "Info") and let me know.
