    Single User Mode - Hold down cmd and s when turning on, then at prompt type fsck -f (file system check on HDD)
    Verbose mode - Hold down cmd and v this will show all background startup stuff and might give you a hint when and what makes it fall over

    Hope this helps,
    Good tips that I'd forgotten about! Hopefully it's resolved but I'll keep them in mind ..

    Another tip would be to install Fan Control (freeware) which helps tweak the fans to keep them cool. The unibodies can overheat to the point it warps the body and then you cant eject the cd drive.
