    ok my macbook ran out of power last night after I went to bed, and
    I went to turn it on in the morning and nothing.

    I plug in the power cord, and the AC adapter light is GREEN, although
    the white LED on the bottom right stays off.

    I have tried the shortcuts to reset the P ram, and removed the battery
    and all the shortcuts i have found, and still no go.

    I have also tried another macbook AC adapter and battery, and still nothing.

    I'm guessing since the light is staying green, it has something to do with
    that? please let me know!! =)

    Try holding down the power button for 5 seconds.

    In the worst case scenario, are you covered under AppleCare (the extended warranty)? You could call Apple or take it to an Apple Store to get it looked at.

    Yeah, take it in to an Apple store and let them diagnose it.

    Is it free for the diagnosis? I don't think I have coverage anymore on it at all.
    If there is anything I can take apart and look at myself I'll do that.. Is there
    any common things that can get knocked loose inside like any wires etc?

    Make an appointment with a "genius" before you go to the Apple Store. They will do a quick diagnosis for free if the problem is an obvious one. If they are unsure of the problem, you will have to leave it there so they can search further and that may start to cost money if the machine is out of warranty.

    Can you be more specific about which model laptop you have and where you are located? If you are close to NY, I would recommend that you go to Tekserve instead of the Apple Store.

    Have you check the battery lights in the back of your Macbook. Seems to me that the problem is the Battery.

    I've tried a known good battery AND power adapter, but still nothing.
    I've also done everything in that URL above, and still nothing.

    If anyone has any actual information of what I should take apart and
    look at, that would be helpful. The Mac "geniuses" i'm sure have some
    sort of manuals etc they would look at and diagnose and replace and
    repair parts. I'm capable of doing anything they could do. So if any
    Mac "geniuses" are reading this let me know what to strip apart and
    check out and I'll do it.
