This could be a hardware fault. Your power button could possibly be getting stuck whe you turn it on. This message only comes up when you maually hit the power button on the laptop. When it comes up again, try pushing the power button quickly to loosen it up, then hit cancel and wait to see if it happens again. If it does you will have to get your power button looked at.

If you have the operating systems disk, you can boot from the disc, and once the setup come dump, choose password reset from the "utilities" drop down menu. Change your password, shutdown, and reboot.

The prompt for shutdown comes up repeatedly


try starting up with the system/install disk, select language then at the top there is utilities, select disc utility and repair first then repair permissions. Then select startup disc and restart. If this fails then do an archive and install.

IBook G3 900mhz 14" lcd


The date and time are held by the battery so I would guess the battery is going dead or is. Try keeping it plugged in and shut it down for a few then reboot. If the time and date stay good guess the battery is dead. Also make sure you get the power management firmware update from apple. hope it helps

If you have AppleCare and your PB is less than 3 yrs old, take it in- that seems abnormal. It's really strange that your PB was heating up while it was shut down. THat indicated that there is s/thing wrong with the shutdown mechanism. Make sure the machine is hsut down before closing the lid. Let it rest a minute.
