Does it allow you to login

Does it allow you to login and then go into sleep mode?

It could be that your processor is overheating -- which is a common issue with macBooks as they get older.

You might try using a cooling fan or chill mat to keep it running while you diagnose. Use the 'Console' utility and see if you see any Overheating errors.

If you haven't tried it

If you haven't tried it already, you should get your system disks and boot using those (by holding down apple-key and c). Then once you're booted off the cd use the disk repair utility and see if that will get your hard drive bootable again.

You can also boot the hard drive into single-user mode (apple-key and s), and then type 'fsck -y' at the prompt. Some computers need 'fsck -f -y' just depending. Good luck.

Oh noes! I hope its fixable.

Oh noes!
I hope its fixable. Nothing worse than having your computer die suddenly...
