Hello,
I'm facing the problem that our Mac G4 restarts automatically after shutting down. I tried to disconnect some USB and Firewire devices but the problem still remains. This behaviour start without any obvious reason. Any ideaas on that ?

Thanks !

You don't say what version of the OS you're using, but somewhere in there - I think it was always in Energy Saver settings - is an option to do that. Might want to make sure it's off.

Standard output is like your butt. Everyone has one. When using a bathroom, they all default to going into a toilet. However, a person can redirect his "standard output" to somewhere else, if he so chooses. - Jeremy Nixon

Thanks for your reply: it's Mac OS 10 (not 10.3). I'll try to find the setting in the Energy Saver setting.
