A couple months back, I had a problem with my Macbook pro it beachballed coming out of sleep, so I held the button down to force it to power down. When I tried to power it back up the display wouldn't come on, and after a few seconds the fans would stop and it would go back to a powered off state. I messed around for ~15 minutes trying to make it work and eventually it came back -- at the time I thought the solution was powering off my bluetooth mouse. Then things fine until yesterday when a similar circumstance happened - I had completely powered off the machine so I could boot off a different drive, and when trying to power it up I got no display.... Again messed around with it for 5-10 minutes, unplugged everything, and eventually it came back to life. I'm starting to wonder if its flakey hardware, though not sure what. Its very stable when running, and I bring it out of sleep 1-2 times a day, so even cold things seem pretty reasonable. I'm running some stress tests (Prime95) and haven't had any failures yet, so if ram/cpu is flakey, its doesnt seem very flakey. Machine is out of warranty, and the odds of being able to reproduce in front of a Genius are very slim. Any ideas of what might be going wrong, or things to try if this happens again? Thanks! Machine is: Mid 2009 17" Macbook Pro, 2.8GHz, 8GB Ram, 500GB Seagate Momentus XT HD.
