Title:

Will not power on after complete battery drain

Text:

I will try and keep this question short.

Before leaving for vacation I unplugged my power cord to protect from lightning or other power fluctuations.  After returning I promptly plugged my computer in and waited for the battery to recharge.  Unfortunately my computer will not turn on after charging the battery, resetting the NVRAM, SMB, etc.

I was using the computer just before leaving so physical damage is ruled out.  The irony of killing my computer while trying to protect it pains me.  It was such a good machine, well taken care of.

If it is even relevant, I forgot to do a shutdown and it was forced to deep sleep.
