MacBook won't come out of sleep (or turn on)
I replaced my hard drive with no problem, but I think I may have done some damage in there while doing it.
When the Jupiter is in the proper alignment with Mars and I jump 3 times and spit, my laptop may start up. I close the lid and the front LED does it's proper glowing thing, telling me that it's properly asleep. When I open up the lid again, nothing happens. The intriguing thing is that if I hold down the power button, it will shut down, so clearly the keyboard is functioning (or at least the power button). However, once I do that, I can't get it to start back up again.
My assumption is that the laptop still thinks the lid is closed. Anyone have any other guesses? And if I am right, any ideas on how to fix that?
Just to clarify:
The laptop worked just fine for a while, but then ran into the trouble I mentioned in the original post.
At his point, the laptop won't turn on at all...no glowing light, no whirring of the hard drive, no fan, nothing. One in a blue moon it happens to turn on, at which point it works fine until I close the lid and then it stays a glowing light with no ability to get it started back up (regardless of if I lift the lid or hit the power butt).
Mayer: I'm not sure what you mean by jump. Could you clarify?
Thanks everyone for the help so far!
magsafe light turns on just fine as do lights on the battery.
Is this a good question?
