    Macbook doesn't turn on after drained battery
    Someone used my Macbook and didn't shut it down. I only noticed a few days later. It must have ran out of battery. Now it won't turn on.
    What should I do?

    Take a deep breath.

    After you plug it in, it could take a few minutes before it allows you to start it up again. Just plug it in, walk away for 5 or 10, come back and open the lid. You might still have to press the power button to turn it on. Almost freaked me out the first time mine dwindled down to 0% overnight (with lid closed). haha
