Currently Being ModeratedFeb 27, 2006 7:15 PM (in response to Brownster)I don't know if this can help with your problem, but I had a situation where the Mini would shut off for no reason once or twice a day after being idle for a couple of hours. I replaced the outlet strip/surge protector with my extra APC Back-UPS, plugged the Mini into that, and haven't had a problem since.Mac Mini, iMac 350 & 333, OS 9.1 on iMacs, Epson 740, Mac OS X (10.4.3)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 25, 2006 10:39 PM (in response to Mika)I'm having the same problem - but don't believe its a power strip problem. See my posts at
My mini's at the apple store being evaluated now.
I suggest calling apple support - if its within a year of purchase, my experience was that they'll talk to you if you tell them its a hardware problem.
Also, try to note what time the problem happened (as exactly as possible) and then check out the system logs, (To see them, go the the Utilities folder and open up the Console app). Try to find the time the problem happened and see if there are any error codes printed in the log - especially for the PMU (Power Management Unit). If you see any tell that to the support person - it might help them figure out the problem.Mini - 1.42, Mac OS X (10.4.5), 1Gig (self installed)
