Bug report - Win2k machine reboots

I have the same problem with my win2000pro sp2 machine, and that problem was
there before I had sp2, and even before I had VNC. On our little LAN there are
other computers who have VNC running the whole time and no problems, ever!

I can see in a event viewer that "machine was restarted after a bugcheck", but
to me it looks exactly like I pressed hardware reset key.

I have fought against this problem (that occurs occasionaly - 2 or 3 times in
one day, and then a pause for 10 days or even a month) for so many months now,
that I learned to live with this problem (and developed almost unconcous
reaction on my left hand, called "CTRL + S sequence"  :o)

If anyone ever comes to solve this problem, please post it somewhere. Now I
even started to think about possible relation between computers hardware and
some program(s) (I have IBM ThinkPad 600X laptop) - that's how desperate one
can get not being able to solve a problem that occurs occasionally, not
obviously related to a visible cause.    :o)

Regards,

                  Zoran
