So this is just a warning... Or advice.. I can't decide which. Story: I was attempting to burn a dvd for a friend. I put the dvd in the drive like normal and began the burning process. After about 2 minutes of burning I get a message saying that what I was trying to burn was too much information for the dvd which was clearly not the case. The dvd held 5gb and I wasn't even burning 1gb of information So I thought that was weird and decided I'd just try again but of course this dvd was already screwed over so I try to eject and lo and behold... The eject button doesn't work. Nor does dragging it over to the trash or anything. Then slowly, one by one, my programs begin locking up: Safari, Itunes, Skype. And so I try a soft shut down and it just sits there. So I click shut down and leave it for like 5 minutes... Nothing. So to my great dismay I do a manual restart (holding the power button down for 5 seconds) and it shuts down easily enough. When I try to power back up I hear the dong noise and the screen turns on and then it sits there. And I hear that pesky disk inside the drive mocking me as it scratches away trying to turn. So I try to start up while holding the eject button and all the usual tricks and nothing works and my laptop is frozen at the stupid white startup screen. I'm finally resigning that I'm going to have to bring it in to fix this abnormal problem and in one final desperate attempt I turn my laptop face down and shake it and POP! The disk pops right out, nearly SHOOTS out of the optical drive and my computer proceeds to immediately start up. So I guess this whole story was just to say: if your mbp ever starts to act up just give it a good shake or smack up the top and it'll start working good as new! Hehe. Sorta, at least. But yeah, any ideas what caused my computer to freeze up like that? But this post I guess is mostly to express my thankfulness that my baby is still working! I was worried for a second there!
