Macbook7,1 13" 2.4GHz Core2Duo 10.6.6 2GB DDR3 RAM 120GB HD.

The battery lights up appropriately

Magsafe is not lit

Machine will not boot on battery or powered, nothing

1. Yesterday I cleaned the keyboard while machine was on; much activity while cleaning the keyboard Guess I should have cleaned it while off.
2. Machine boots normally, but after a minute or two I get a message - something like "... some permission to shutdown ...". If I said 'cancel' I could go on for a while until the next message. If I did not say 'cancel' the mchine would shutdown.
3. Looked up the issue on Google. One suggesting was that I remove the battery, unplug the power cord and click on the power button for 30 seconds.
4. Put batterty back in.

Machine dead!

I reinstalled the battery, without power cord, powered it up, and machine boot!..

Great!, but after a few minutes it shuts down, and I am able to reboot.

Help still needed.
QUOTE Thanks
