    I switched on my MacBook and the startup tone didn't chime and there was no screen activity. However, the while light was on. I tried again and it worked then, but I'm concerned that this may be a problem.

    Thank you in advance.

    If it hasn't happened since it's probably just a glitch. You can do the PRAM reset. If it happens again after that, I'd take it in and have the problem checked out.

    Thanks for your advice.

    On the subject of glitches, I just had a full Wi-Fi signal without access to the internet. I turned off AirPort on my computer and turned it back on again. Like before it worked again after.

    Due to this, I checked the console:


    05/09/2008 20:17:36 SystemUIServer[111] Error: airportd MIG failed = 1 ((os/kern) invalid address) (port = 63495)
    05/09/2008 20:17:44 kernel WLC_E_COUNTRY_CODE_CHANGED

    Are two glitches in to days too much of a coincidence?

    I wouldn't say so, unless they're reoccuring. Think nothing of it if it doesn't happen again is my advice. I've had a few glitches of my own, but they never happened again, so I'm not bummed. There's nothing worse than getting all hypochondriac about a perfectly fine computer. =)
