Is anyone successfully running a server on OS/X?  If so, have you done 
anything special to get this rascal to stay online?

I can get my eMac to crash in less than 24 hours of running (typically 
12-15 hours).  Crash may not be the correct term, but it is dead as can 
be.  If I disable the power management and the screen saver a message 
will appear on the screen in many languages saying to press and hold the 
power button.  I stopped running the server and the eMac stayed online 
and worked just fine for 1 week so I am pretty sure it is Tor that is 
killing it (it is the only app running other than whatever starts
