Hello Sun-Freaks,
i think i got the right answer to my problem...

Thanks to all who responded, especially casper and renan (the winner!)

Here's the problem, to remember:

>Hello Sun-Freaks,
>we have an urgent problem here:
>Our Ultra-Server stops working and shuts down sometimes without any
intervention from us. We can see nothing on the >terminals, but we must
sitch him off and on to reboot...
>Software is Solaris 2.5.1 with recommended patches.
>Has anyone got a clue on what this machine is doing?
>Thanks in advance
>Kai Schwermann

Many pointed out that i could have installed the power-saving features, but
i didn't...

Only one answer had a hint to another problem, and when i did it, the
machine stayed up for (until now) 2 days, and
i hope that the problem is corrected now:

Thanks again, Renan and all the others.

Have a fine day and stay tuned
