Power Mac 1.8GHz problem

Apple has posted a detailing an issue where some 1.8 GHz models of Power Mac G5 (Late 2004) may freeze when performing certain video-intensive tasks. Other symptoms include an optical drive that may not eject after using the computer for about two hours, and attached displays may not wake up properly after the computer has been sleeping for an extended period of time. Internet Connect may also become unresponsive when you've been using the computer for about two hours. Apple Engineering has "identified the cause of these symptoms and is developing an update to address the issue." In the interim, Apple suggests disabling automatic computer-sleep and display-sleep options in Energy Saver, as well as setting processor performance to "Highest" setting instead of "Automatic."
