    hmm if it happens to me, i just connect the power, open the macbook, and it starts booting from hibernation or something like that :)
    but when you press the button, does it show something on the screen? or you just cant turn it on for 10 mins?

    There could be an issue with the power cable or battery.

    Or, it could also just need an SMC reset.

    Also, check to be sure you aren't using a 60 watt adapter.

    Those will generally charge MPBs, slowly, but can't sustain power to a system with a dead battery.

    If the SMC reset doesn't solve it, and it's an 85 Watt, take it to a store (both the system and adapter), and have them tested. Make an appointment first.
