Remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter. Hold the start button for 10 seconds. Replace the AC adapter and try to start without the battery. Please tell us if it does anything, makes any sounds or any lights, thanks.

Here's a link to the Nvidia issue. You symptoms reallt didn't bring that to mind but it's worth a shot. Use the number listed in the "Contact Center" answer. If they turn you down come back and we'll work on it some more.

try to power it on without the battery - does it react in any way ?

i would try the opposite of that too - try to power on the computer without the magsafe connector.

when you press the button on the battery - are the lights showing anything?

as mayer asked before - any lights, any sound - anything ???

hello guys i think you have to send your Mac to the apple care shop because this is not some regular fix.

You might need to replace the NVidia card which is also built on board and this should also mean that its going to be the whole mother board. Thus gonna be quite expensive , so its better to send it to any closest Apple Care shop to get the part replaced rather than trying to amend your board in some way which might not help in the long run ...i'll be sending mine to the Apple shop here in Ghana so i'll keep any news up and posted thanks for reading again guys i really appreciate it .

1.unplug the AC adapter

2.turn the mbp on

3.leave it on, until it turns off because of no battery

4.plug the AC adapter

5.wait until magsafe light is green (full charge)

6.turn it on

it work for me, but in the next restart it failed again, but at least you have the opportunity to do something.

"If you want your MacBook to wake from sleep when you open the lid of the machine, all you need to do is

launch the Terminal and type the following command

pmset -g profiles

see if

lidwake 1

if 0

it is disable"

sudo pmset lidwake 1

makes it enable.

I was having problems with my Macbook not waking after 10 min of sleep. Looked everywhere and found this on the web and applied it to my mac.

Now works when I open it form sleep. ONE happy lady. wanted to share

maybe it will help others with 'won't wake after sleep mac's.

@Szabolcs Nemeth i managed to fix the issue using a good tutorial i forund on you tube had to heat up the nVidia Graphics card for some time i used a heat gun so you should be careful when doing this. It may damage some tiny Conductors on the board. i sold the it though so it's been a while now.
