    Hi all,
    I have a mid-2007 MBP. Here is my issue...it's been more than a year that when I totally discharge my battery (meaning the MBP shuts down), when I connect it back to the charge it is taking abotu 10 minutes to power up again...it was not the case before and my wife's MB is working well....meaning when it is down, just connecting the charger the MB is back on within a sec.

    I have changed my battery but it did not change anything, I called Apple and they recommended me to restore snow leopard...which I did...I still have the same issue.

    Does anyone experience this? Any idea what is happening (HW or SW issue) and is there a potential fix?

    Thanks

    That's odd. Try using your wife's magsafe adapter from her MacBook. If you use that, does it boot up right after plugging it in?

    No it does not...I still have to wait about 10min to see it rebooting after a full discharge.

    Is there an Apple store close by that you can go to the Genius Bar?
