    So I left my Macbook Pro on on accident and then I went to see a movie. When I got back, it was dead, so I plugged my power adapter in. After 20min of it being plugged it, I click on the battery status and it reads 2 dots. So I figure, Ok thats enough. So I hit the power button. It does nothing. I do this several times, it does nothing. Then I take the battery out, put it back in, and I get a loading screen that I've never seen before. Then about 5min later it asks for my password, then it goes to my desktop. Is this normal, am I just taking this the wrong way?

    Thanks

    By the way, today I noticed my Mac was making the humming noise again. (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=670480)

    Was that loading screen like a greyscale screenshot of how you left your computer, with a the loading indicator?

    what you are describing sounds like an EFI firmware update.

    No, it wasn't...its something I'd never seen before and I cant seem to get a screenshot in Google.

    Why would it do that without my permission though?

    and I searched EFI Firmware in Google images, thats not the screen I saw.

    yea i guess that's probably not it then. when the status bar came up did it have the os x background behind it or was it grey?

    It was just grey with a status bar on the bottom. It looked a lot like Vistas status bar, but it was blue instead of green.

    What you saw was your Mac coming back from hibernation.

    Your battery was dead, so it loaded everything from your ram had at the time on your HDD. If you would have let it goes back to normal without shutting it down by removing the battery it would have booted with all your apps that were open when you put it to sleep.
