I have an early 2007 Macbook and it randomly will shut down and after 15-20 minutes it will boot up.

It will never reboot successfully, after a wait of 15-20 minutes sometimes it will boot up, somtimes I

have to wait overnight for it to boot up.


The power adapter does charge the battery, The battery does boot the laptop but with the same random shut downs as

it does when using the power cord.


The times when it does boot up everything works fine. Sometimes it will stay on overnight, sometimes not.
