    I'm on my second RevB 12" after my fist one had a badly twisted case.

    I've had it for a few days now and things were going well. Last night I was listening to iTunes and doing some work, closed it up before going to bed and it went to sleep fine.
    Got into work this morning and opened it to find everything was frozen, couldn't move the curser or do anything.
    After a min the screen then went black and still nothing worked I could not even reset with the power button, so resorted to removing the battery but that didn't do anything for it.

    So now I have a PowerBook that I can not get to turn on. I've tried the Power Management reset but that has not done anything for me.
    Still nothing happens when you press the power button

    Anyone got any ideas or suggestions please.

    Baldrick :err:

    Have you added any new RAM? If you have, try taking that out. If that doesn't help, it's time to call Apple.

    Thanks :)
    Just tried that but no luck.

    Think that the power button may have become disconnected, I've only used it once to turn it on when I got it so something could have come lose since then.

    It is now booked in to see the *Apple Doctors* hopefully they can sort it out and get it back to me ASAP
