Hey forum, Recently my MBP's (mid 2007, 2.16 GHz C2D, 4GB RAM, 7200RPM 500GB HDD, OSX Lion) battery died while using it, not put to sleep but actually shut off for lack of power. This isn't extremely uncommon for me because the battery is pretty old (2010). However, thanks to Lion's flaw, jk feature, of restoring apps to their state before shutdown, my MBP will attempt to restore my 6 apps running (Preview, MS Word, Safari, iTunes, Mail, Finder) each time I attempt to reboot my computer. After successful login, the MBP freezes and won't respond to anything. No forcequit, nothing. I see the pinwheel of death until I finally resolve to force shutdown by holding the power button. Restarts following that change nothing. I've restored the OS by holding CMD + R, removed and reinstalled the RAM, and drained the battery. Nothing helps. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?? I haven't backed up very recently so a full restore is the undesired, albeit final option.
