Will not wake after closing screen

Help! Most everytime that I close my Macbook it will not wake when I open the screen again. I have to turn it off by holding the power button for about 10 seconds. I thought maybe the battery connector was loose so I took the bottom plate off today and checked the connection. Everything seems good other than some dust that I cleaned out. I deleted a couple of big programs today after I finally got it to turn back on thinking maybe they were causing it but that didn't help.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You should always perform an SMC and PRAM reset when experiencing this type of issue.

Thank you! I did both of these and it seems fine. I guess I will know for sure over the next couple of days.


Happy to hear Brandon.


Sorry but after leaving for a few hours and having it closed/on charge. I came home and it was unresponsive after opening the lid. After trying to power it on several times it finally worked. I'm not sure what could be causing it but i bet it will be expensive if I have to buy a part. Every time I get it to come on it goes through what looks to be an installation/progress bar of some type of update on the password screen.


I was just browsing the yahoo website and all of the sudden the laptop shut off like the battery lost all power. I thought maybe just the screen went out so I tried to turn on the caps lock and didn't get a green light.


Has the unit been exposed to liquid of any kind?
