Currently Being ModeratedMar 5, 2008 6:43 AM (in response to driftnut)also when I'm running off of battery, and start it up. It will chime then cut off multiple times. It will start up eventually. This sometimes happens when It's plugged in. If its plugged in it will keep chiming and cutting off untill I remove the power source.macbook pro, Mac OS X (10.5.2)

Since you're under warranty, you might just want to call Apple about this. If your Mac is shutting down randomly, then it might be hard to troubleshoot. You should back up your data if you can.
You could try a couple of things. You could go to Disk Utility and verify and repair if possible both permissions and the disk. And you could also try reinstalling the OS, just in case software corruption is a factor. But all this sounds pretty weird, and it will probably be quickest in the long run to just let Apple sort it out.

You could try resetting the SMC:
But I'm not really sure what's going on here. If resetting the SMC doesn't fix the problem, then it might be worth posting a new topic so that it will get more attention than one buried in someone else's thread.
