    my power button on my mbp is kind of sinking on one end. i just noticed it today, its no longer flush with the speaker. the one end is significantly lower than the other which is at the right level. this computer has been plagued with problems from day one, and im getting kind of sick of it. i at least want it to look nice if it wont ever work right. so is this something i can take to the apple store to get repaired? its still under the one year warranty and i have apple care.

    This was mentioned as a problem in the Apple forums by a number of people. Apparently, the button is attached by an adhesive and can get out of alignment. It's an easy fix if you bring it in.

    Actually it's a little metal retaining clip that has popped out of it's groove.

    The fix is simple, just pop it back in.

    As long as it doesn't register it being pushed when it hasn't been pushed then you're alright!
