    just (4 weeks ago) bought a MAcbook pro 15". and now the powerbutton does not work longer (cn´t switch off the machine).
    Somt tips????plan is to get an external harddisk, make a backup and send in the machine. But I don´t like the idea of not using the macbook fo several weeks.:mad:
    is there a chance to switch off the macbook in an other way?

    There is a shut down command in the apple menu that you can use.

    Now, how're you going to turn it back on if the button is broken? :)

    It's impractical but not unheard of just to leave the MacBook on. Then you can wait for a time when you can be without a computer for a few weeks (which in my opinion seems a little excessive). Just make sure it's always got enough charge on it.
