Sometimes when my PowerMac G5 starts up, it will be in Safe Boot mode. I can see these messages in the log:

Apr 2 09:55:49 localhost kextd[9]: safe boot detected
Apr 2 09:55:49 localhost kextd[9]: safe boot; invalidating extensions caches

When I was reading through the discussion groups, it seems like this is normally requested by holding down the SHIFT key during a boot, but I haven't been doing that. Are there other reasons that cause the system to boot to Safe Boot mode?

I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.6 on a Dual 2.7 GHz PowerPC G5 (PowerMac G5) with 4.5 GB of DDR SDRAM.
