Since upgrading to Mountain Lion, my iMac 27" i7 keeps spontaneously restarting every now and again. I'm sure it's not an electrical supply issue, but it's after waking from sleep... I turn my back... a few minutes later I hear the startup chime and it's rebooting.


I've restarted from the Recovery partition and run Disk Utility to no avail.


Anyone else?

    You shouldn´t turn your back to your Mac - it´s a downright personal issue.


    Usually it is a question of incomaptible third-party software. Try updating each of them or uninstall them (properly)
