Has anybody experienced this...


Just recently, when I touch the palmrest of my MBP just left of the touchpad the computer shuts down. It's as if I'm hitting the power button.


Anybody been through this?

It sounds like a HDD/logic board issue with a bad keyboard insulator, just went thru this with my kids MBP. Take it to the Apple store for diagnosis, they had a flat rate, they replaced the HDD, logic board twice, and put on a new keyboard for the flat rate. (with a 90 day warranty) Machine works like new, as it was one of my old "road dogs" that I gave to him. Cost less than 1/3rd of replacing it.
