    I recently lost the leather keyboard cover I bought before I even received my powerbook. I am now having trouble getting my powerbook to close! I push the top all the way down and then have to press all over the top of the PB to somehow eventually get it to latch shut. I thought I read something about this before but I was unable to find any matches for my searches. I am thinking about calling apple. Please give me any suggestions you have.

    If the latch isn't popping up to keep it closed, it could be a problem with the magnet that pulls the latch up. Just give Apple a call or take it into an Apple Store.

    so, you used to stick a piece of leather between your keyboard and screen when you closed it... and now that leather thingy is gone. and now you're having problems closing it? :confused:

    listen to yellow, just take it to a Apple store to get it looked at.
