FYI: MacBook Random Shutdowns. STATUS: wait - do not buy

Apparently, this is a BIG problem, which Apple refuses to acknowledge.

I contacted several Apple stores (incl. 1-800-MY-APPLE), and ALL their employees are just playing dumb.

Sad ...

I have an issue with my macbook also shutting down
by hotwaxdj / October 31, 2006 10:03 PM PST

I have got to hold the power button till the little light on the front blinks real fast. Then it will still just shut off with no warning at all. I got this to use with my DJ biz and do not use it cause I can't trust it to work. What have you heard?

Did you demo that to the repair desk?

Sometimes I find an owner that didn't return the product for repair. Never could figure why they don't call it in and take it back for the fixes.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
