Hey guys,

my '08 macbook pro has been having some trouble recently. yesterday, after a full charge, the machine wouldn't power on. i took out the battery and gave it some time, then tried again hours later, still no luck. then, as soon as i was about to go outa the house, i noticed the LED light was on, indicating the machine turned on... this morning, i was watching a tv show, paused it, closed it, then came back later, and the white LED light would be on when the machine was closed, but when I opened it and tried to get some keyboard response - nothing.

any ideas/suggestions?

thanks in advance!
