Okay, the question: has there ever been any explanation in the comics as to why the Guardians of the Universe didn't attempt to save Krypton from exploding (other than a real life reason like "then they wouldn't be able to print Superman comics")?

Blame Tomar-Re

Tomar's most famous mission while serving in the Corps dealt with the planet Krypton. Krypton, a planet in sector 2813, was growing increasingly unstable. It was due to explode, caused by internal pressures deep inside the planet's core. Tomar-Re sought to use a rare compound called stellarium to absorb some of the tectonic pressure, thus saving the Kryptonians. He gathered the compound, and was en route to Krypton when a yellow solar flare blinded him, and forced him to drop the stellarium. He quickly recovered, but discovered he was blind. He gathered what little stellarium he could without his sight, and proceeded towards Krypton. He was closing in when his vision started to clear. The first thing he saw upon his sight returning was Krypton exploding. The Guardians recovered Tomar and brought him back to Oa, where he healed and rested.

... Poor Tomar-Re.

Good thing Clark's more accepting of failure than Fatality...

I copied the summary from a wiki, so we'll have to see if someone will post scans (I think it was Superman #257) for how the story was presented.

It seems unlikely that the solar flare was from Rao, if he was far enough from Krypton to recover, or too far to actually use the Stellarium.
