    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?

    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.
