IMac (Intel) :: Desktop Fan Comes On And Then Screen Goes Black Shuts Computer Down Every 5 Seconds

Jun 4, 2014

I have a 27 inch desktop. Upon turning the computer on within seconds the fan comes on. Then it goes to a high fan. Then it goes to a black screen. Then it shuts off. Then if you click the mouse it will come back on. This cycle repeats itself every 5 seconds. Only one time in the past month did it turn on normally and run for me.

I was just in my room minding my own business and I heard my iMac "shut down" but nothing happened, and I'm still able to use it like normal as I type this message.It seemed to quiet down my fans though, they are still running but much quieter so I guess in a way its a good thing.I'm just curious as to what happened here.

MacBook Pro :: Click Shut Down But Restart Again

Jul 29, 2010

I have a 15" MacBook Pro unibody, when I click shut down, to turn it off, it just restarts! It doesn't shut down. The only way to turn it off is to hold down the power button for a few seconds. Even then, sometimes when I do that, it will randomly power up without touching it at all.

Hardware :: Computer Shuts Off Unexpectedly?

Jul 29, 2010

I have a strange problem with my late-2008/early-2009 MBP. In the last couple of days, I have been using it and the screen goes black suddenly. It happened once for just a few seconds and then recovered, but today it completely shut off-- even though the battery was mostly charged (and I had received no warnings)-- so I had to reboot.

A few possibly relevant facts about this computer and this incident:

1) I've had it over a year and never had this problem before.

2) I had the logic board replaced recently because of an issue with sleep mode. This problem never appeared before the logic board was replaced (although this may be a coincidence).

3) Both times the problem happened this week, the computer was running on battery power.

4) Earlier this week (before the incident), I got a little warning to "Check battery" or something similar. The warning went away, though. Maybe this is a faulty battery issue?

5) When the computer completely shut off, it was also running a Time Machine backup. I noticed that TM has been having trouble today-- giving warnings about errors. Not sure if this could be related.

OS X Server :: Computer Shuts Down - Right After Start Up

Feb 25, 2008

My comp. has worked perfectly, Then I installed some updates, Itunes i think? And the comp. Shut down, and when it restarts it works for a min or two, then freezes, and i get the beach ball, that just spins around and around forever.

if I don't try to open anything, or do anything when i restart it, it will just shut down, and restart, then when it comes to the Grey screen with the apple and the little circle below it, the circle looks all pixilated, and just freezes

that is the version its on (Taken two days ago, and sent to a buddy for other reasons completely)

MacBook Pro :: Computer Turns On For Half Second Then Shuts Off

Sep 3, 2010

Macbook pro intel core duo. My macbook is turned off, when I press the power button the light goes on and the computer starts making sounds of turning on for about half a second and than shuts off. I tried removing the battery and putting it again, I tried to hold the power button (the light flickers at one point and eventually shuts off as well after 2 seconds), and tried turning it on with the adapter plugged in and unplugged.

Software :: Computer Shuts Down After A Minute Of Inactivity

Jan 10, 2010

After just over one minute of inactivity (no moving mouse, typing, etc.), I get a "Logout, Cancel, Restart, Shutdown" screen. If I don't quickly click out of it, the computer totally shuts down. I have an Intel Macbook. I don't believe it's a hardware problem; I've run the hardware test and it comes up clear.

Nov 1, 2009

I've got a four year old Macbook Pro 17", running 10.5.8 OSC, 2.33 ghz, 3gb 667 mhz ddr2 sdram.

The power cord was unplugged, although the battery was fully charged. I plugged in my Canon printer for the first time in over a year. It printed half a document, then the computer shut down. I pushed the power button and got the start up chord, but then it shut down again. Tried this a few times. Then I unplugged the printer and plugged in the power chord. it started, but it's very slow, and I keep getting the pinwheel.

MacBook Pro :: GPU Panic Error - Computer Frequently Shuts Down

Jul 1, 2014

Recently my MBP retina late 2012 started crashing with the screen going all black leaving the keyboard lights on. I had to force it to restart. After a couple of attempts I could finally access the computer for about 10 min before it crashed again, during which i could see the logs. As of know it has been on for 1 hour without any issues but when I run some more hardware-intense programs it crashes. Since i bought the computer from a private person without insurance im not entitled to the 3 year warranty. 

Im getting these errors:

MacBook Pro :: Gray Progress Bar Starts And Then Computer Shuts Off

Aug 27, 2014

My MacBook Pro will not start. It chimes and the gray progress bar starts and then the computer shuts off. I am able to start it holding the Command +R keys and access Disk Utility. That is where it says my S.M.A.R.T. drive is "failing". I have a backup from Time Machine from a week ago. I am concerned the computer is going to die. What should I do and is my computer going to die?.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Desktop Background Changing When Shut Down Mac?

Jun 25, 2012

For some reason, every time I turn my mac off, the desktop background changes. It always returns to the same picture, which was the second or third thing I changed my desktop to after getting my mac.  

I have background switching unchecked in my preferences, and I have never selected it as an option. Also, when I go to my preferences, it will show the icon of the picture I changed it to, even though the desktop itself has switched back.

OS X :: Why Does My G-5 Shut Down My Computer In Sleep Mode

Nov 14, 2008

Could someone please explain to me why my computer is shutting down in sleep-mode. In addition, when it happens, the fan goes into hyperblow, which doesn't make sense because it would not be operating if the system were completely shut down. It acts like it is shut down but won't respond or wake up, etc. I re-loaded my system software per the Mac Store Genius' advice, but that didn't work. Is it possible that my power supply is going?
