Tomcat gets crazy...

I am running (or try to run) Tomcat 4.0 server on a Win2K machine. But sometimes while I am testing my JSPs locally, the system reboots on its own without any messages or warnings or exceptions or whatever... Is this a bug of Tomcat (driving crazy Win2K and vise versa) or I have misconfigured my server?
Any ideas wouldbe very helpfull.

What does the server do besides plain vanilla servlets and JSP - I mean, does it access a database?

The only "special" thing it does is reading data from an XML file I have created...

Is tomcat rebooting or is Win2k??? Windows 2000 is VERY sensitive to fluctuations in power (Known problem). I had this problem & went out and bought a power conditioner/BU system......All my problems went away!

Win2k reboots the system. And I am sure there is no power problem. The system reboots as soon I press the enter button after I have typed in the browser's adress bar. Also I have tried to use Netscape 6.1 instead of IE 6 but the same thing happens. The weird thing of the whole case is that if I delete the logs and the localhost folder in the work directory of TOMCAT_HOME, then, for 90% of the cases, Tomcat works fine. Of cource it may be a coincidence, but I don't know.
