Normally I don't mind the occasional crash of the application since it's still a beta. But to cause the entire system to suddenly reboot is worrying me. Normally it takes some serious tinkering to get XP Pro to crash like that ie: o/c'ing or OS corruption. When this happens, I know it's time to format. But when I know it's the game causing this, there must be something seriously wrong somewhere.

In case you don't know about it, there is an XP option to automatically reboot on failure which is enabled by default. You can turn it off by going to Control Panel -> System -> Advanced Tab -> Startup and Recovery Settings -> uncheck Automatically restart. You should then get the actual error instead of a reboot. Hope that helps.
