My wife went to use her Macbok the other day and went to start it up and it wouldn't turn on. She assumed it was dead and plugged it in and everything appeared to be normal. The lights came on like the computer was charging and so she hit the power button to start it up. The computer acted like it was getting ready to start up, but never did anything. She waited a few minutes and nothing happened and so she hit the power button to manually restart it. She said it acted slow, but could tell that it was being very slow. She she said it finally loaded up and she was able to input her password and get into her computer. She was uploading some pictures from her digital camera into iPhoto and after about 15 minutes of being on her computer it just shut down. She checked and the computer was plugged in and had power, but it wouldn't power up. The light on the power adapter was a VERY faded green color when it was connected to the computer. It was so faint that I could only tell it was lit up when I woke up in the middle of the night and there were no lights in the house on. We have scheduled an appointment with the Genius bar in Indianapolis, but we're over an hour away from there. I'm assuming we'll have to drop it off and come back again to pick it up. Any ideas as to what could be wrong with it? We have over a year's worth of pics on there of my daughter and some aren't backed up. Is any of the data at risk for being lost? Any idea how much we're looking at since we didn't extend the Apple Care?
