    Hi:

    I have a 4 months MBP and she turns herself off whenever she wants to do it.

    I had this problem when i unplugged the machine (about 3 weeks ago) then she seemed to fix herself and worked really well all of this time.

    Now she started doing it again and she also did it plugged 4 minutes ago.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    Do you call your MBP a she (like some guys do with cars) or is this some kind of bad self-translation from Spanish?

    Make an appointment at the Genius Bar and take IT with you.

    The female persuasion can turn themselves off when they want to. They were designed that way to punish man.

    In regards to your problem, I would try a fresh install of your OS. If that does not solve the issue, it is most likely hardware related and a trip or call to your local Apple store or help line would be in order.

    In Spanish "la" can mean a feminine "it" or her. Since they are the same word and the OP is obviously not fluent in English, this is excusable.

    Excusable or not, my advice still stands. They could run some diagnostics to see what the issue might be.

    I was just saying that the op isn't some crazy who thinks of his Mac as a human or companion.

    Maybe she's PMSing and hasn't had some lately ;)

    give it to her and see what happens.

    If she's PMSing... she wouldn't be in the mood for it.

    At least the OP doesn't want to marry (or this brings back disturbing images, mount) her. :eek:
