To continue the flogging of a dead equine (yikes, I think I am boring myself)… To get the screen back on my MacBookPro, I have found that powering it down for somewhere greater than 5 hours seems to revive it (for an unknown amount of time).
Yesterday, I let it rest for 3 hours, did a PMU reset… no lights. So I shut it down overnight, let it get some zzzzs, reset the PMU again… and I get a screen. It’s either this, or I try the writing the neck of a dead chicken over the patient.
But we both go on vacation next week- me to Strawberry, the MBP to the Apple Repair clinic, where it will go through detox, some personal therapy sessions, perhaps a facial or a manicure… it just cannot decide.
