    Hey all, I got a perplexing problem with my MBP. Earlier in the week my MBP decided it won't start on battery power. It would only start when plugged in to the charger. Any ideas on how I can try to fix this on my own before going to the Apple Store?

    A side question: Since I ordered my MBP on Apple's online store, can I still take it to the Apple store for service? Its still under warranty.

    Yes, you can take your machine to the Apple store. There may be an issue with your battery, it could be defective and not holding a charge. Regardless, I would take it to the store and get it checked out.

    I agree with Hankster, take it to your an apple store.

    I would get a appointment with the genius bar before you go.

    How long ago did you get the Computer? When I had a problem with my two day old MBP, i just took it in wihtout an appointment and asked to return it because it was defective. I just told them what happened and they pulled a Genius from a customer to confirm it was defective. Then the apple employee told me if i wanted to just exchange it, i said sure i'll give it another shot. 10 mins later I was out with a new one. BTW it was early in the day and there weren't much people around.
