I hate all those unexplainable little annoyances. I opened mine while it was sleeping yesterday, touched the trackpad and nothing. Clicked the button, nothing. Pressed space bar and up it came. Minor enough not to worry about but makes you wonder what's going on. See how you go over the next few days I suppose...

Mine does it occasinally, however ive found most of the time if you wait a few seconds and tap the power button, it shows up

Its just our Macs reminding us not to take them for granted and that we should show them lots of love

Hmm, just turned mine on and it had a flashing planet earth in the centre of the screen... pressed the power button and it died and has now started ok. Anyone know what the icon means?

The only time i've had my macbook freeze was when I was calibrating the battery and let the battery die(and have the comp go to sleep for 5+ hours) and then plug in the charger. When I woke it up, nothing seemed to work. Restarting fixed it though.

I am having a similar, but recurring problem like this. I let the MacBook go to sleep on battery power, unatended overnight. The battery drained and computer was off when I woke up. It probably sat for at least 5 hors in this condition. This morning it wouldn't even turn on. I plugged in the AC adapter and let it fully charge. i began using it on battery power alone and was working fine. I left the desk for a few minutes and returned to find the system in sleep mode. I moved the trackpad and nothing happened. I pressed the space bar, still nothing. I pressed the power button, nothing. I held the button for a few seconds and a menu appeared asking if I wanted to shut down/restart/etc. But the computer would not respond. The track pad and keyboard both were non-responsive. I rebooted and all seemed well, but the same thing happened again. After a few tries, I removed the battery completely for about 10 minutes, re-instlled it and boted up. Seemed to fix the problem. But alas, it is happening again. I am fed up! What is going on here?? I am out of ideas. I looked in the power settings and saw nothing unusual. Anyone have any ideas?

This happens every three months or so on my PowerBook. It seems (to me, anyway) that a PMU reset (or SMC reset) resolves this.
Quote:
The Power Manager is an integrated circuit (computer chip) that is usually on the logic board of the PowerBook and iBook. As the name implies, it is responsible for power management of the computer. It controls backlighting, hard disk spin down, sleep and wake, some charging aspects, trackpad control, and some input/output as it relates to the computer sleeping.

Over time, the settings in the Power Manager may become unusable, which can result in operational anomalies with the computer. Examples include not turning on, not waking from sleep, not charging the battery, or not seeing the AC Adapter, among others.
(It's one of the many reasons I'm fond of suggesting a PMU reset for any type of power-on trouble.)

But maybe it's just me wanting to feel like I've fixed it. It's such an intermittent problem that it's hard to tell.

I've had this too! Interestingly enough, my wireless mighty mouse can move the cursor around... but nothing responds to clicking.... so i just restart and the prob goes away for a few weeks
