    How does one power up the MacBook Pro when the cover is open? Last night I shut down my 15" 2017 MacBook Pro without closing the cover, and this morning I wasn't able to power it up again until I closed the cover and reopened it. I tried touch pressing the power button at the end of the touch bar, but that didn't work. Is there a way of powering it up while the cover remains raised?

    I tried that, and it didn't work. I even force pressed it.

    Then your power button might be broken. Is it still under warranty? You can also get a free diagnosis at an Apple store.

    Does your power button actually click? If it doesn't, it might just be stuck

    Yes, you're both right. I tried it again and it worked. I hadn't held the button down long enough for it to click. Thanks for the help.
