I am definitely not an expert at this (see my previous posts) - but my advice would be to take it back to the store, as it is only one week old. It'll still be covered by the warranties, and provided you didn't drop it in the toliet or anything, you should even be able to exchange it for a new iBook. That's what I had to do in my case, but my issue was different than yours. Either way, take it to the apple store and see what they can do for you - because even if you can fix it, you'll probably worry that the problem might recurr.

How much hastle will it end up being? Maybe driving an hour is worth a simple exchange rather than a long drawn out process.
