The past few months my cube will randomly start up (when I bump into my desk for example), sometimes when gaming, it will randomly crash as well (luckily less frequently.) Recently, I put in a new 80GB HDD, with a fresh OS 9.2.2 install, and also did a new PRAM battery. I zapped the PRAM 3 times when starting up the first time. It had no issues for several days after this. Then randomly, one day, a window popped up on the screen that said "this computer lacks the proper software to go to sleep" and the machine crashed on me. I went into energy settings after this and changed the sleep setting to "never" rather than 20 minutes. Since then its been starting up randomly again and has crashed twice. It really bothers me not being able to leave it plugged in. I'd like to fix this once and for all. I tried rezapping the PRAM as well, to no effect. It crashed after when playing a game. I even checked the wires on the power button and blew dust off everything. I'm not sure but don't think that it's a loose connection. Any suggestions much appreciated.
