    What happens when you press the power button? Is everything running, but the screen doesn't show? Grey screen? Or does it not turn on at all, like literally nothing happens?

    That sucks. Have you tried taking out the battery and have it plugged, and then turn it on?

    If that doesn't work then I think it's the power supply? I'm no mac genius so it could be something more internal with the macbook.

    Hopefully the guys at genius bar will understand and let a little over the one year warranty slide. GL
