Where is my mind?

Hi Andy,

I had a similar problem with my old powerbook, it turned out that the
powerbook was booting ok but the screen had gone so it looked like it had
switched itself off! May not fit your symptoms... But just a thought... Have
you tried an external monitor?

Also does this happen when plugged into the mains? Dodgy battery? (apologies
if this is obviously not the case!)
