Imac going through multiple power cords ?

Oh, and it did the first 2 cords even though it sat behind a UPS... the third time was straight into the wall socket - UPS had died by then... Odd !!! I have my Mac Pro on the same circuit and it has worked flawlessly for 6+ years !???

Last part first: I've never seen or heard of something quite like this.
But I take issue with your assertion that you can't take it to the Genius Bar. If it's destroying power cords - which you should verify, if you haven't, by trying a "dead" cord with a different machine - it's not working. That's a potentially very dangerous situation. Take it in, describe what's happened including your experiments and results, and get resolution.

Ah. Yeah *that* I've heard of. It's not the switching of power cords that's changing anything. It's the fact of disconnecting the cord completely for a noticeable period of time.
