Well, your flux capacitor may be out of line. If you restart holding the P, Z and Q keys, it should start to work again.

I agree with Mrsam; if your flux capacitor is out of wack, the sleep detector will not function properly. If his suggestion of the P, Z and Q keys doesn't work, I suggest taking your unit to an Apple Authorized Service Provider, and having a professional work on your machine. Please mention that it maybe the flux capacitor, as it will help to speed up the repair. If you've damaged the flux capacitor (instead of it needing a simple reset), then you will need to replace it - and it is a very expensive part.

I figured it out, I pinched the LVDS cable in between the hinge

and the clutch covers and it snapped. They are cheap on Ebay,,,,Just annoying to havae to backtrack and fix something else.
