Question: My two-year-old iBook laptop won’t start up, even when I have it plugged into AC power. Help!

The IT Guy says:
Sometimes if you have fully discharged the battery in an iBook and the computer has gone to sleep, it may not start up even when it is plugged into power. Try unplugging the iBook from power and removing the battery, and letting it rest for a while. Then plug in AC power and try to start up by pressing the power button.

Other things can certainly cause start up problems. If you still have Applecare protection coverage, you can give Applecare a call (1-800-APL-CARE) and get assistance over the phone. You may need to reset the Power Management Unit on your laptop to get it to start up. Apple has instructions for this at “Resetting Powerbook and iBook Power Management Unit (PMU)â€.
