Experiencing a Mac OS X Kernel Panic? Here's How to Fix It - One of the scariest things a Mac user can experience is a kernel panic, which is when a Mac stops in its tracks, darkens the display, and puts up the message, "You need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button until it turns off." If you see the kernel panic message, first off, relax; there is nothing you can do at this point to make it go away except to restart your Mac.
