i hope not mate cos my 80gb ps3 has been doing this lately aswell usually when my web browser crashes, the screen freezes and the only i can do is turn off my ps3 from my controller or on the front of the console.

Same thing happened to me today but I did not submit a report because I was unfamiliar with the privacy policy of SCE and why they need access to all of the users account information. Trying to find that privacy policy info on the web.

Had this problem a few months back - try backing up, restoring the system & giving the vents a decent clean. I stuck a fan behind mine & raised it on blocks & (touch wood) haven't had any problems since!!!

Mine does the same sometimes, usually after watching a flash video.

How did you switch the console off? I think it comes up sometimes when you just flick the switch at the back of the console without powering down properly, the best way to avoid it is by switching it off via the XMB or front power button first

I have also encountered this message twice,over the past couple of weeks,never seen this message before so basically ignored it as i persumed it was due to the system freezing and having to do a hard reset...But today i switched it on as normal to play abit of Avatar,within two minutes i had a bleep and a flashing red light light,tried everything from leaving it to removing HDD,but to no avail..

Luckily though i took out a 3year extended warrenty which expires in Feb 2010, however it is a 4 week turnaround so i'm debating on getting a slim then selling the 60GB off once it gets back/if it gets back...

Don't wanna scare you or anything but this happened to me when I got YLOD. Was playing AC2, collected a feather and the game froze up, shut itself down. I turned it back on and the start up screen was glitching and freezing, went to the XMB lasted 3 seconds then shut down again. Did this about 8 times then the last time it dent turn on and got the dreaded YLOD! Anyway the point is everytime I restarted I got this messege!

I'll now be attempting a home YLOD fix, got the compound and alcahol and just need a air gun, Friday I'll let u know how it goes!

Last night i selected CODMW2 on xmb then power just went off on ps3, no beeps or lights or nothing!!! took power cable out the back for a few minutes then eventually got red standby light and then back to normal operation. Must admit my heart skipped a beat. Had the worst week as it is, lost my job, washing machine packed up, car packed up then thought NOOOOOOOO!!!!! Not this as well!!

JordanW241is right, as  this is the message you get when turned off from the back as i was to eager i turned

the ps3 off just in this way, so to get the message to stop returning.

 

 i left the ps3 in stand by and held down the power button until i heard 2 beeps, then it asks you to plug in your controller after this it takes you to the screen of wonderments, where by you should choose the rebuild the file system or it says something like that choose it.

 

 and it should sort out any corruption in the file system at least it did for me and the message stopped returning hope this helps.

i believe this error message is a minor feature implemented with fw 3.10 just informing you that you shut the ps3 down incorrectly last time. the performance of your machine is exactly the same as it was when it crashed all those other times in the past, only now you are being told about it :) i wouldnt worry if i were you, just report it and move on :)
