So my MBP, just an hour or so ago, failed to shut down.  I click Apple->Shut down, but the computer instead restarts and while loading OS X, gives me an error that says "You restarted your computer because of an error."  The fans are maxed out right now, there is -no- process causing thisl  Also, I use iStatMenus to monitor my temperatures, and all of the CPU sensors have gone offline, iStat is only reporting temps for the hard drive and battery.


iStat also seems to have lost the ability to control my fan speeds.  Uninstalling and reinstalling iStat did nothing.  Resetting PRAM and the SMC have done nothing either.  Any ideas? 

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), 2.4 Core 2 Duo, 8 GB Ram
