First my machine: MacBook Pro, 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB Ram, 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM with 120 GB HD (35 GB open) running OS X 10.6.5
I leave my laptop running all the time plugged into the wall (just had my original battery replace along with my Super Drive this week.) Starting about two weeks ago I would come into my office early in the morning and find that the laptop had rebooted overnight and was at the sign in screen. This morning the computer was just where I had left it the night before but after stepping away from the computer briefly I came back and found that it had rebooted again.
Can you suggest any reasons for this happening or tell me where to look for an "event log" or something of that nature. I have only been working on Macs for a couple of years and am not familiar with where to look to see what problems caused a crash and reboot. If this were a PC I would go to the Event Viewer and look for the problem. Any help would be appreciated.
