Hi everyone, I have a rather confusing problem relating to my Macbook Pro, I was hoping you knowledgeable people could help me where the Genius bar failed My computer refuses to go to sleep, for some reason unknown to me. When I direct it to go to sleep via the apple menu, it instantly wakes up. Now, the last time I shut it down, it had difficulty turning on - I actually thought I broke it - but after 5 mins of pressing power, it turned on. This makes me wary of shutting the laptop down, so I need some help here. I've googled but I think my problem is little known. Secondly, every time I do a reboot, the macbook pro forgets the time and date, and also my wifi password. I get a warning message saying "Your macbook pro has been set to a date before June 2008", and I have to re-insert my wifi password. I don't know if these two problems are related, I read somewhere they may be related to the PRAM battery underneath the optical drive, but I also read that this battery gets recharged. I never have the battery in the unit, I always power the computer via AC. Oh yes one last thing, a number of keys on my Pro don't work - very annoying because I can't reset the SMC by any known method - the USB keyboard is only operational once the OS is loaded! Thanks for reading, I hope you can help me with this problem, R.
