Hi! I just bought my macbook back in september and it has been running fine until five days ago... it was on screensaver and out of nowhere, it just shut off... i thought it went to sleep and tried to revive it, but nothing happened..
i followed the instructions on apple´s website, but nothing works... when i push the power button, there is a small green light that comes on and off next to the camera... but, nothing else happens... i have no idea what to do.. the worse part is that i am in Ecuador and I bought my macbook in Canada.. i am going to go to a mac dealership in a couplea days but I thought i´d post here and see if anyone has any good ideas.. thanks again for responding to my problem...

p.s. i haven´t had a chance to update my mac OSX because the internet connections here are awful.. i was hoping to do it when i got back..
QUOTE Thanks
