If you left your macbook with no power for a long time, its battery will probably refuse both to boot or to charge. For those of you a little experienced in batteries, there will be probably a good hope to bring your batteey back to life using a good balance charger and discharger for lipo, li-fe,li-ion,pb battery and so.
