    I'll try to be detailed and brief.

    MacBook Pro 15" (mid 2007), Santa Rosa 2.2ghtz, 2GB RAM, 120gb HD

    History: Computer has been occasionally failing to wake from sleep. Temporary solution is to force-shut down and restart.

    Current Problem: Failed to wake, shut down, will not boot. Period. Screen remains blank, HD and optical-drive spin-up, boot light is faint.

    Resetting PRAM and SMC, failed.
    Boot from Leopard DVD, failed, now won't eject.
    Verbose mode (cmd+v) failed.
    Single-user mode, failed.

    MacBook Pro will not respond to anything. Any ideas, suggestions? Has my only 2-year old MBP died on me?

    The Ivory Tower (I'm not coming down)
    If you hold Option on startup, does the partition selection screen come up?

    Do you have your system restore discs? I recently had a problem where my machine wasn't booting and used the restore discs- the Leopard DVD wasn't working for some reason.

    You should probably take this one in to the Apple Store
    I am not sure there is much else you can do at this point

    Do you have a backup of your data?
    You may be able to get everything off in Target Disk Mode
    That would be the first thing I would do

    Time to visit your local Apple store. Good thing you have AppleCare, right?

    Fail on my part. I've definitely learned my lesson.

    My brother and I are going to swap HDs from his and mine MBP to recover my data before I go to the genius-bar tomorrow. They're quick to wipe an HD.
