As it says in the topic.

My machine spontaneously rebooted this morning and all the logs have to show is: Shutdown Cause: -62

Only searches only lead to incomplete or deprecated (pre-OSX) lists of error codes.

Hopefully there are people with more inside info...


Watchdog timer detected unresponsive application, restarting the system.
Troubleshoot for stuck application, startup item and any loading preferences.
