I have a Macbook white 2.0 late 2006 model (core 2 duo), 2GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM, OS X 10.4.11.
Since early days it is not restarting when I choose too. Well at the beginning it used to restart from time to time, and now not at all. I am normally force shutting it by that long press hold on power button, and then I power it back up.
Now, at these few times that it is surprisingly restarting, it's not coming up with airport on. Meaning, the signal/symbol of the airport/wifi, is not there, and it can't detect a network at all :-)
So I normally shut it down again, but properly, and then up again, and when I make shore that the airport is there, and I simply continue working :-)
Never checked this thing in a lab, did all different kind of test and updates, checks, repairs and tricks... but nada!
It works fine for last 2 years and half (except heating and a slow cooling fan, and some slow performance from now and then, and those cracks in the the body and the battery life... well I guess it is simply tired, really it's not a complaint :-) :-) :-)
from time to time I am checking if if someone came across with that kind of problem, and what would be a solution, but I did not find.
Well I guess i need to replace something, and i would love the self home made solution :-) I guess I also want to know if I am hurting the poor guy by force shutting it down all the time.
Bueno, many thanks in advance if you take your time to answer that (even read that), cheers, long living and prosperity.
