Are there maintenance scripts or any other software running on this machine overnight?

OS Version: 10.1.5 (Build 5S66)
Wonder what that's about? The Dual 800 MHz G4 "Quicksilver" shipped with OS X 10.0.4; 10.1.5 would've been an upgrade at some point long before 10.4.
The only maintenance scripts that come to mind are those in Cocktail and SuperDuper. I had checked both and neither indicated a crash or they were unable to complete their activities.
Re the build version. When I saw that, I too was/am confused. I haven't a clue where that came from.Alternaut: "Just in case you haven't gone through the motions yet, did you check Resolving Kernel Panics to see if anything rings a bell?"
No bells have rung yet, though there must be some cause. Divine intervention is most unlikely, especially in my case.
