    My MacBook Pro 15", which is about 6 months old, has had power management problems the last several days. Generally, like most Mac users, I don't shut it down every day-- I leave it sleeping most of the time. But lately, the computer won't wake up, and I have to play with the power button a little before finally managing to bring the computer out of 'safe sleep'-- the same as what happens when the battery has died.

    Today, I tried this and could not get the computer to wake up or turn on at all.

    1) I'm thinking this could be due to a problem with the power management chip. What do others think?
    2) I had been keeping the laptop in a cold room this winter-- probably down to 50 degrees. Could this be affecting the computer (or especially battery)? I do keep it plugged in as well.

    Thanks!

    Book an appointment with the genius bar or phone AppleCare, you need to get it fixed, it's not going to get any better.
