Today I tried to turn on my mac mini and it did not respond. No warning light, nothing. I suspect it either got fried in power surge (I note my surge protector no longer protects from surges, it has a red light) or the internal battery gave out. Its an Intel late model 2009 mac mini, and is no longer covered by the warranty. The machine loss is not that big of a deal to me but it has photos on the hard drive that mean a lot to me. Of course I'm a bad person and did not back up these photos. Lesson learned. I made an appointment with the Apple store to have it looked at on Tuesday. Anything else I should do or try?
