    Hi everybody,

    I have a Macbook that I got in November (I'm a new Mac user, not overly used to the Mac OS yet). Have Leopard installed as well as Bootcamp. I used my Macbook plugged in at home this morning, shut down, and packed it up for class.

    When I got to class (no power cable), I tried to start it up but it won't. It says I need to restart my Macbook The exact message is: You need to restart your computer. Hold down the Power Button for several seconds or press the Restart Button. It says it in English, French, German, and Japanese). When I restart, it just returns to that screen. There were no physical impacts to my backpack while I was travelling from home to school.

    I have Bootcamp installed, and was able to boot up using XP, so I know it's not a complete hard drive failure.

    Any ideas? My 1.5 hour lecture is 30 minutes in and I can't take notes from the Powerpoint slides because I don't have Office installed on my Bootcamped XP side!

    Thanks in advance.
