    Twice in the past day, I've put my macbook to sleep for a minute or two, carried it somewhere, then when I open te screen back up, it doesn't turn on. Even if I press the keys it won't turn on. Do you have to press the power button or anything?

    The reason I said that I carried it somewhere, and then tried to awaken it from sleep is that maybe by carrying it, the hd shuts down because of the sensor? However, I carried it somewhere just then and it DID turn on when I tried to awaken it, so I don't know.... Any help?

    I usually use the eject button to wake my PB up from sleep so maybe give that a try. If not try resetting your PMU and see if that helps.

    this has happened to me a few times, just get a quarter, unplug the magsafe thing, open the battery thing, take the battery out, and then hold the power button down for like 5 seconds and it restarts it. then you put the battery back in and it should turn on.

    it's weird i have the same problem.
