Power shuts off after releasing button
I have a 2008 15" MacBook Pro 2.5GHz (A1260) penryn having a power issue (seems to be common).
Now I'm well aware of the nvidia graphics issue, but it seems to be more of a power issue than anything. I haven't ruled that out yet, however I've checked the HD, reset SMC (hold power button until lights blink) and still the CPU, as well as lights shut down as soon as the power button is released. Tried with Battery and without. I'm using your standard 85W charger and I've even taken the optical drive out. Before I take it in to the Apple Store (where I'll bet that they say its a logic board issue) I'd like to hear any ideas or suggestions from you wonderful people.
Is this a good question?
