Yesterday morning it was in sleeping mode, then I pressed spacebar to activate the laptop and it turned itself off. Then it can't get started. It gets power since the battery light is lit. The store were I bought it (Sony Center Stockholm) has gone bankrupt.

Any ideas what to do?

Does it work directly on AC power without the battery inserted? – Karan Feb 4 '13 at 8:25
@Karan I just spoke with Sony support who told me to remove the battery which I've just done and they'd call me back in 5-10 minutes. Thank you – Programmer 400 Feb 4 '13 at 8:40
@Karan it's working again. Thank you for the help. – Programmer 400 Feb 4 '13 at 9:18
Glad it's up and running again. :) – Karan Feb 4 '13 at 17:46

After speaking with Sony support, I could remove the battery, start the laptop and then put the battery back restoring the system.
