    SOb... This is bad :(
    Well, unfortunatly my powerbook has gone on the fritz. I bought it about two and a half months ago, and tonight when I went to turn it on I was on my way to the shower and I heard the startup noise then left the room. When I cam back everything was off and it wouldn't start up again. A few minutes later I gave it another try and I heard the startup noise, and I thought
    "phew, must have been one of those strange things" But then the screen woulnd go on and the computer just went silent. I have no clue what could be wrong... it's been pretty humid today... but nothing too much, even so I unpluged everything and took out the battery just incase. I am not sure what the problem is but its very dis-heartening I really like my powerbook and I hope the Apple support is good should I have to send it in for repairs. I'd apprechiate anyone telling me what they thought of Apples repair support. I just put $1600 into this thing... Sob, I really hope I don't have to put in even more.

    Thanks

    You sure it was charged? Did you try running it with the charger on? Why was it shut down, we usually just sleep our Macs, even notebooks

    Hi, im a relativly new Mac user and this is question Ive wondered about.
    I have an iMac 17" and powerbook 15". So never shut down, huh? Just "sleep"?
    Totally agree! Never ever go back!

    Hi again, I know somethings wrong with it.. THis time I turned it on and the startup screen showed for about 3 seconds. Then it shut off again, the battery was full, and I tried it plugged in too. Today the battery was more than half way drained so I took it out again and packed it all up. I am taking it to and apple store about an hour away to see if they can help me with it.

    Thank's for your responses

    I don't even put mine to sleep. When I go to bed at night I just go to the login screen, but don't log out......
