Argh.

It started off with the PowerBook suddenly deciding to dim the screen and annoy me just after startup saying that it was on reserve power. Pfft. Plugged in, and the battery's only good for 2 seconds' runtime anyway, so it obviously couldn't have booted up on that!

So I reset the power manager thing.

Now it's dead.

No chime, no noises, no screen,absolutely nothing.

What happened and how do I fix it?
