Power On and Sleep Problems!

So, my MBP is a mid 2010 13", C2d 4gb ram 250GBHDD nVidia 320m.

Slept for 2 months (I went to a trip and thougt it was off, but it was sleeping).

Now, If it goes to sleep, right after it wakes, it turns OFF (with or without cable and/or battery).

To power on, I have to hold de power button until it starts flickering and then it chimes and carry on to the OSX.

If I press the power button just once (normal), it lights up, HDD starts spinnig and then turn off.

I also have another problem, which is Airtport not detected,

it was working after the sleep problem, but now, suddenly it stoped. but this is a small problems.

WHat i`ve tried already:

PRam reset (2 times in a row)

Ram change (2x2GB).

Tried each module in each port (2GB). and nothing changed.

If i triy to boot without memory, is does not turn off, simple beep (lacking the memory offcourse).

Tried SMC Reset, but I think it did not worked, soon to try it again.

Now I`m going to disable the internal keyboard/power button and try to boot it shorting it out plus an external keyboard.

Before you do anything else, please reset the power (SMC) and let the battery fully charge up. Here's how: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964
