    I have a fairly (about a month) new macbook pro and there is a weird issue I have never come across before. Whenever I press the power button it freezes up. Nothing responds and the only way to shut it off is to hold down the power button until it shuts off. Any ideas?

    could it be a SMC issue? sorry, but that's all I can think of...

    Somewhere Back In The Long Ago
    Either SMC Or

    Maybe a slightly sticky power button? Mine is brand new and it is quite tough...Can't think of anything else either, but since it's new.....Well, you know what to do:)
