I have a MacBook purchased in July 2008. Recently it will not "wake up" after going to "sleep" with lid closed. Start button not work. Only way to restart is to take battery out - then it restarts no problem.
Anyone else have this problem? Battery is working/recharging fine.
Thanks!

This might be a firmware issue, in which case your MacBook is probably eligible for Apple's recall program. Some of the earlier ones had a firmware issue that would cause the computer to randomly sleep, and Apple released a firmware update, but often the computer would freeze in the middle of the upgrade which bricked them.

There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.
