Power Button very dodgy.
So my old Mac (early 2008) started behaving very strange 6 months ago. When I try to boot my mac I have to press the power button 15-20 times, and if nothing happens I wait for 15 minutes and try again... and so on until it boots.
When the mac finally is on the power button works perfectly, and it registrates every single time I press it. If I restart the computer it also boots perfectly every time.
But if I shut it down I have to start over again with the dodgy power button. The same thing happens when I close the lid, then it wont wake up again and then I have to do a forced shutdown (Holding down the power button until it is completely turned of)
I've formatted the hdd and reinstalled the OS (Lion), SMC-reset, PRAM- NVRAM-reset and nothing seems to do the trick.
I'm pretty sure it's not a hardware failure, because when it's on, the button works like a charm (as descriped abowe)
Please tell me you know a little trick for this
Is this a good question?
