Raise your Mac from the Dead!

Mac folks need to know!

If your Mac is completely dead; no response at all to anything, no lights, not a flicker when the power button is pressed, absolutely dead; it may just be playing possum. An SMC bypass may boot it.

As it was described where I found it;
– unplug the power cord;
– press and hold the power button;
– while holding the power button, plug in the power cord;
– continue to hold the power button for 10 seconds;
– release the power button for 2 seconds;
– press and release the power button.

Worked for our mid-2010 Macbook Pro that we thought was truly dead after spilling tea in it. The procedure doesn’t fix anything but it did boot the machine. It boots into a state where a lot of low level functions aren’t working so the fan runs full speed constantly, but at least it’s running and we’re able to copy all the files to an external drive.
