Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop
Had leopard when bought new, then I updated to snow leopard. Worked fine until I loaded all the updates to it. Now it freezes up just on the admin side if idle for awhile. Cant click on anything with the curser.
It would be much better if you downgrade your OS.
#1) If you're on the edge with regard to PCI/USB/FW power drains, 10.6.3 might just put you over the edge & cause sudden shutdowns. The enhanced Open GL/CL performance may be coming at a price in terms of power drain.
#2) Growl, even the latest version, is still not quite ready for prime time on some machines if you use a lot of real-time media playback. It seems to command top priority even when it's not appropriate.

Hello, this can be either a software or hardware problem,
To know this, please try to repair your hard drive by pressing "cmd - S" at startup, that will take you to single user mode. you will see a black screen with unix lines. Here you type "fsck -f" and hit enter. Wait untill the repair is finnished. If it shows problems then you have a hard disk problem. If not, try to reinstall the system using the DVD, and choose "archive and install" option, to keep your files and settings.

SOURCE: wont start up completly
there is the single user start-up, which you were thinking of. There is also a safe-boot for macs.
To start up into Safe Mode (to Safe Boot), do this:
1. Be sure the computer is shut down.
2. Press the power button.
3. Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold the Shift key. The Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone but not before.
4. Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple icon and the progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).
During startup in Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you will see "Safe Boot" on the login window, which appears even if you normally log in automatically.
During startup in Mac OS X 10.2 through 10.3.9, you will see "Safe Boot" on the Mac OS X startup screen.
To leave Safe Mode in any version of Mac OS X, restart the computer normally, without holding any keys during startup.
