AlBook not starting...

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Something wierd happened today. I started by powerbook up after work. It beeped at me 3 times, then the sleep light came on, and turned off-on 3 times. Not much more happened... What does it mean? (other than, presumably, a trip back to Apple?)

    If it was plugged in try rebooting. If you were on battery, plug it in, the battery was probably all but depleted.

    It seems to be working ok again now... Wierd. The problem wasn't with the power - it had the problem with both the battery and the power in, or with either. This was during startup - not coming out of sleep.

    I'm glad it's working again, but am now slightly worried that it'll happen again in the future...

    This sounds exactly like I have seen my PB react when the battery is at a couple percent and I thought it was plugged in, but wasn't quite there. The plug was in, but not seated and the power indicator light on the plug was not on. A little jiggle and everything works, including waking up which it stubbornly refused to do before the jiggles.
