    MBA 2015 turns on only with SMC reset after being shut down...

    This last week, my Macbook Air Early 2015 didn't respond to the power button for the first time. It took a 15 minute battle with the power button. After that, whenever I shut down my notebook, I had the same problem. The power button didn't answer and the screen was wholly black, so I learned...

    MacBook Pro doesn’t charge, no light on MagSafe

    (MacBook Mid 2015 15”) So last night while rendering I took a look at my Mac and saw that the MagSafe LED is not on at all and it’s also not charging.

    HELP: 2008 Macbook Pro 17 has required 3 SMC Resets to start after sleeping lately!

    I always put my Macbook Pro 17 to sleep when I'm not using it and unplug the magsafe power adapter then too. A couple weeks ago I opened the lid and clicked "Return" to login and nothing happened. The light in the front wasn't pulsing like it does when the computer is sleeping. I assumed the old...
