    A while back there was a problem with these machine randomly turning off (thread started by me here). I was wondering if anyone else with this machine was having a recurrence? Or a first time, for that matter. The screen goes blank and I have to press the button on the back many times before it eventually boots up. No Apple care. It's over 3 years old anyway.

    Yeah, you can see in the original thread that it happened before. I got it sorted for free through the repair programme. I wonder why it's happening again, though. Could it be the power supply is at fault again? Or it could be unconnected...

    Thanks, aki, I'll try that - but I'll obviously have to wait now until it happens again.
