I have seen many posts with this title, but have not been able to spot any resolutions that help yet ... Thanks for any support you can provide. 


The Macbook (Retina) was on and I was starting my usual apps (Safari, Mail, iTunes...) and it seemed fine when it apparently powered off.  The mag power light went off.  No keyboard backlight.  Black monitor.  No fan noises.


I tried hitting the keys for an SMC reset several times in varying fashions with no effect on the unit.  I have two power leads and neither shows a any light, green or red, when attached to the computer.  I have used different wall sockets, ensuring the power is on in each.  I seem to be unable to do anything to get a reaction from the apparently dead Macbook.


Any suggestions?


Cheers,  Jim
