Try a PRAM and VRAM reset and see what happens.

Hi all!

My PM G5 2.7 DP goes generally fine, but it has some quirks now and then.

This one is quite odd: once in a while (let's say once every one or two
weeks), when switching the G5 on the DVD drive opens up.
This happens just a couple seconds after pressing the ON button (so it
doesn't seem software-related)
The DVD drive (original, AFAIK) works flawlessly otherwise.

I didn't change anything special on this G5 (I installed Skype recently),
but it happened even before.

Does somebody have any idea how this could happen?
