So I received a 17" MBP for graduation this past weekend. I was playing with it for a couple hours then put it to sleep and went to bed. The next day I opened it up to go on the internet and it was frozen. I tried to follow all the steps but eventually just shut down the system and rebooted. When I rebooted, the laptop stayed at the loading screen with the clock-like loading message for over 5 hours. After searching through the book I attempted to reload the OS disk, but this seemed to make matters worse. After it finished, the system just shut down. Now everytime I turn the system on, it loads for 30 seconds on the load screen with the clock-like thing and an empty load bar and then shuts down. I called Apple and am sending it via fedex tonight (hopefully) but I was just wondering if anybody knew the reasons for this error and if it will be covered under Applecare.
