    Well I am not even sure if there is a solution to this. May have to just wait for the battery to die.....which could be a while, but I woke up this morning, opened up my Macbook Pro and nothing will appear on the screen.

    I can hear that it is on. The white light is on if I close it, and disappears if I open it.

    I turned the brightness up (so it's not that), and I checked the battery indicator and it says 4 lights. Even tried plugging it in.

    There's no way to take the battery out, correct?

    Hold down the power button. That'll turn off the computer. Press again to turn it on.

    What's happened is that it crashed during sleep. The sleep light and the battery lights work regardless if the machine is crashed or not.

    Well, if you can hear it- it's on, No?

    Hold the power button down, and force shut it off, then power it up again.

    Good thing I didn't mention that I had done this.

    Tried it again, but held it longer this time and it worked.

    Thanks for the quick responses, guys.

    By the way, there is no way to take the battery out, correct?

    Not without a lot of trouble and warranty voiding-ness.

    If I recall correctly, it can be, there are just couple of screws holding it. It's not user-serviceable anymore so it voids warranty and Apple doesn't sell the batteries separately anymore

    Well, if it was easily removable like it used to be so you can have two or more batteries with you, the life of each battery would be shorter as they would be smaller.

    Apple went for built-in batteries to get maximum battery life
