    Well I bought a new 15" MacBook Pro in January 2009. And for the most part it's worked like a dream.

    Last night I was using it as usual, when suddenly I heard a very brief, quiet internal noise and the computer turned off immediately. It was as if some vital component inside the computer said "screw this" and stopped working.

    Now when I press the power button, absolutely nothing happens. I've tried using battery only, AC only, and both. Nothing works.

    I've scheduled a phone call with Apple support, but until then... does this sound familiar to anyone? Is this a known issue? I wasn't doing anything out of the ordinary when this happened, just browsing the web.

    Thanks in advance,
    Nico

    Sounds like this would be accompanied by green, toxic smoke and a foul smell.

    Apple Expert was supposed to call 30 min ago. Still nothing. Great, thanks Apple...

    Anyone know something about this problem? Paying thousands of dollars for a computer that craps out 5 months later is ridiculous.

    Try some troubleshooting steps for Intel macs that won't power on


    Or, if available on mac pros or older G-series macs, try resetting the SMC
