    My mid 2007 macbook pro thinks its asleep when the cover is open but awake when the cover is closed. I was encoding some media files to dvd when a friend accidentally unplugged the power source. The battery drained and I did not notice until it was fully drained. I then went to plug it in and turn it back on and it refused to, I then closed the cover and it awoke as if everything was normal. I opened the cover and I saw it exactly as it should but then the screen went black as if it had gone to sleep. Help, i'd rather not have to purchase a new macbook.

    Try a SMC reset. Disconnect anything connected including the MagSafe, remove the battery then press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. Put the battery back in and see if it starts up normally.
