well, it may be fine. but it could be something... how's that for non-specific?


you could try this:
power it down. remove the power lead and the battery. hold your power button down for about 10 sec.
at this time it may be a good idea to check the battery and magsafe connections for debris. and if you blow them off, wait a bit for reconnecting or wipe them with a clean soft dust free cloth so you don't have any moisture on them when you reconnect.
reinsert the battery and connect the power lead. then turn it back on. see if your problem persists.
