So I bought my MBP 13" at Christmas 2009, and have used it regularly (read: daily, like most people here). Today I closed the lid for about 30 minutes, and when I opened it again, I got my authentication screen, but no response after entering my password. I waited a few minutes, hit the power button, then powered it on again. Now, I get the blank grey screen without the Apple logo showing that it's booting. I've tried booting from the DVD, but it doesn't respond to C, Option or even Cmd+V for Verbose mode. I can hear the HDD whirling away for a while, then stops. Have I been hit by the Blank Screen of Death? My iBook needed a new logic board, so I bought a MacBook. That MacBook had its logic board replaced for a bad FW port under AppleCare. Now I have a nice MBP and it does this? Not cool.
