Yesterday I put my white (pre new aluminum MB) to sleep (with lid closed) and I returned a while later and opened the top and the MB would not come out of sleep... the screen stayed black no matter how much button pushing or anything... When I listened I could hear the fans running and the little white light outside of the clamshell was glowing... I had to hold the power button to turn it off... What is causing this and more importantly how can I resolve it?

Thanks and Happy Holidays

My first apple product is this White 2.4 Mac Book I bought on September 25, 2008!

try taking the battery out, holding down the power button for 10 seconds, and putting the battery back in

then...

turn on the computer, and right after hitting the power button, hold option+command+p+r

those are the two resets that apple care told me to run if I ever had a problem.

I drive a BMW and use a MacBook. One could say that I appreciate perfection.
