MacBook Pro mid 2010 boots directly into sleep mode.
One night, I closed the macbook to put it to sleep and when I opened it a few minutes later, the screen didn't light up. The status light was pulsating, indicating that it was still in sleep mode. I did a hard shut down and restart, but after the chime, logo, status wheel transitioned into the desktop, the mac went into sleep mode again (x10 times of trying). I ran through resetting the PRAM, and other suggestion for resetting the SMC, tried starting in safe mode, but nothing worked. The only way I can get it to turn on is if I hold the macbook pro upside down when starting it.
I'm thinking that it has something to do with the magnetic closure not functioning properly. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!
Man... I forgot all about this.. Thanks to those who answered! Apple wanted 800.00 to replace the whole case. Yeah, I had my iPad sitting on mine when it happened.. and it even happened with my wife's recently. Now I just avoid placing anything that has magnets ((iPad!!!)) on it.
Thanks again everyone!
Is this a good question?
