I was happy that I bought a new MacBook Pro today for more school related use, but when I went to go turn it on to use it recently...it didn't turn on, I tried to mess around with everything that I could think of, but it's not turning on now....any ideas??
If not, I'm definitely taking it to the Apple store tomorrow.

Not too worried since warranty will cover it, but if I'm missing something really obvious....I doubt it, it would save me a trip.

No, no light is on, it basically seems like the unit is off, even though I keep pressing the power button...No indicators blink or anything

I cannot power on my macbook pro, the power button does not light up and the computer seems unusable. However, it must be on becuase it is using battery power and the unit is warm underneath. I tried the troubelshooting steps on Apple's site, but nothing (removed battery and power cord, held power button for 5 seconds). The unit is only a month or two old. Worked fine the last time I used it (at work), brought it home, tried to start her up, and nothing.

Please help!!!
