G4 Just Shuts Off... on its own..

I have an original G4 Tower and monitor. Occasionally my computer will just shut off. Not as in shut down but as in if someone just unplugged it and it sorta makes this popping noise as if the the whole apt's power went out.

It does not let me restart it right away. I have to wait an hour or so for the power button to work.

Sometimes its will stay on all day.. other times it will only stay on about 5-15 minutes.

Besides that problem the computer runs flawless so I'm thinking is a power issue and not a hard drive issue.

Has this happened to anyone else?

Suggestions? [/i]

Yeah, sounds like a power issue. Perhaps a component is heating up and then overheating. Get it fixed by a pro!
