    Hi All,
    I have 2 problems..first of all yesterday i saw some ants coming out from the vent and i was shocked so i thought of cleaning my desk and i kept the MBP at a shelf which is around half feet above ground and my poor MBP(lid closed and powered off) slipped n it fell down...:(
    Now when i restarted the machine evrything worked just the keyboard backlight didnt glow but again after restarting it was normal..the lights were back to normal..everything is allright now..and Apple hardware check also was successful.
    But i m tensed..that something might have gone wrong..coz of the drop..is it really possible that something might have gone wrong..n will show up in future??
    N please help me with the ants problems..
    Thanks in advance

    if you mbp is still working thats a good sign.
    the drop probably didn't damage anything if there isn't an immediate sign of malfunction.
    why were there ants in your mbp?
    hope they weren't eating your thermal paste!

    get some ant killing powder- dash it on the vent or anywhere you see them and in 5mins they will be gone!

    As for your MPB, it should be ok since it was switched off.

    Itz been 15 hours since the drop and everything is working normal..am just paranoid...that something might go wrong..by the way macbooks can handle half a feet fall i guess ?? :D..so much for the premium we pay for these beauties....
    N as for ants i donno how they crept inside..I keep my mac inside a sleeve n then put it inside my backpack..
    Are these ants gonna cause serious damage??i love my mac..i feel so tensed!!:(

    Ants, Aspertame, BP and your Bruised MBP

    Sorry to hear about the drop, that's a bummer, it's probably okay but cosmetically probably not and nothing worse than looking at a blemish on a mac, it's like needing panelbeating on your mercedes but it's a stolen car so you're reluctant to take it to Tonys Used Car Parts and Coffee Shop.

    Okay firstly NEVER use ant killer if you value your health and your pets likewise for flyspray that stuff will kill ya !
    USE Aspertame - so grab some sweetener, you know the stuff we use as a sugar substitute, ants hate that stuff man, they won't go near it, nor should we but anyway it works.

    Second LOSE your mac ie you got robbed, the thief took your macbook pro and maybe your Canon 5D Mk2 (that you didn't really own) and claim on it under your home insurance and while claiming treat yourself to a couple of other bits ie new coffee machine and a new pair of headphones.......NOW to make sure the insurance robots and the cops buy your story tell them "the thieves even took a half eaten chicken in your fridge and a pair of your underwear", that will hush them up, they'll be reluctant to continue the conversation and more likely to wrap up the claim faster....... ching ching - new laptop and a bunch of other treats, give the hand me down stolen stuff to a local charity that is anti BP, Tom Cruise and Glee.

    Judging by the way you type, I'm not surprised your MBP was dropped and infested with ants.
