Well, I guess my 2008 MacBook Pro (previous gen) has hit the dust. I was using it on Skype last night, closed the lid to take it back home, and when I opened it up back home I got no display. Obviously the MacBook is out of warranty, so I'm trying to weigh my options here. The nearest Apple store is over three hours away for me, so ... I have shutdown via holding the power button multiple times and booted back up with no display. It does turn on, however it seems to be stuck in 'sleep mode'. The white ambient light, located on the latch release button, stays 1/2 lit while the lid is open, then full brightness when the lid is closed; no 'pulsing'. I pressed some of the keys to see if it would 'wake back up' but nothing I did changed it's state. What do you fine people think? THANKS!
