    Default HELP OS 10.2.6 Freezing... and problems on reboot


    OS 10.2.6 on a G4 Cube, External FW Drive Maxtor 5000

    I started my backup to my external drive and went down to watch TV
    6-3 hours later I am back and I have my nice 'Planets' on my screen..
    everything is quiet... I move the mouse to wake up my computer... no
    way
    cannot put it back at work.... I have to shut down... (Energy saving is
    off in my preferences, so I don't understand why the screen and the
    disk were on energy saving)
    On Reboot , as always, it wait for local disks but doesn't mount the
    external FW... wait is very long so I shut it down (2 time) and
    disconnect the external FW drive..
    on reboot I get the grey screen with 2 larges whites strips on the
    screen.... I have to reboot again (3rd time) and it works..

    I also understand why I have so may failed reboots , I need to remove
    the private/var/db/Bootcache.playlist to get a correct one.. (what is
    this file ?)

    i try to understand the system.log, but it's impossible to detect
    what's wrong (I am a simple user, not a system manager !)


    questions
    1 - what should I do to avoid so many reboot problems?
    2- what shoudl I do to avoid so many problems with FW external drive
    when I have to shut down and reboot ?

    I'd very much suspect your external Firewire drive, our G3 Desktops all have
    external Firewire drives and all mount perfectly every time and are in use 8
    hours/day.
