    I have Mac Mini 1.5 solo that work very well for me and my son untill we updated the EFI 1.1 a week ago and never booted back up. I call apple and was told bad hardware maybe caused by update they send me to a Apple store to get it checked but there they said it was the power button not the flash. I had it plug in to the wall the hole time at home but when i took it there it booted as soon as he plug it in so he shut down and it did not boot, he unplug it for a few seconds plug it back no good with button but did boot a few second by itself. I replaced the button my self for a few hunder less then what Apple Was asking for (160.00 less). Still not luck. I feel i got screwed by Apple on this. Has anyone seen this and how it fix....

    I update Mac Mini at restart for update it turned off and never started I tryed to restart, but nothing no responds. But if you unplug power and replug it turns on by itself, but power button wont work, sleep force shut down, restart ( what the update was to fix).

    You should have let them fix it because I believe apple tests after repairing and if it doesn't work they go through all the possibilities to find the problem and they are usually nice about it and don't charge you for stuff you don't need and they cover their repairs it is expensive though.

    That was my plan but they wanted $165.00 for the power button and if not logic board $400.00 they dont believe the EFI flash was the cause. Sorry if I sound mad but I work cars for a living (new cars) if I flash a radio any of many computeres in the car and they lock up guess what customer is getting something free.......
