You're probably not actually flashing the firmware, but downloading the utility to do so. Follow these steps:
1. Quit all other open applications. Open the MacBook Pro EFI Firmware update which is in your Utilities directory
2. Click Shut Down in the MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update window and wait for your computer to shut down.
3. Press and hold the power button on your MacBook Pro until the power indicator light flashes repeatedly, then release the power button to begin the update.
A status bar indicates the progress of the update.
Important: Do not interrupt the update.
Your computer restarts automatically when the update is completed and opens the MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update.
4. Click OK, if the firmware is now up-to-date.

Have you gone into System Preferences (click on Apple icon, top left of screen) and changed the Energy Saver settings? If the Energy Saver settings are set too low, your Mac will shut down.

yeah i have an intel imac and had the same problem. I upgraded to pt le 7.4 and now pro tools recognizes the 002 rack and it works fine, but still the core audio manager does not recognize the hardware. It says in "use" when I first turn on the 002 rack, then it says not connected after about 20 seconds. I don't think this really matters though because I have beeen able to do everything fine without having the core audio managr recognizing the 002 rack. I hope that helps

I have the same problem too and I know it's not the lamp that died because I took out the logic board and used it on another LCD. I'm guessing it the CPU. oh, one thing to try...try to insert a CD or DVD in it or press - command ,option,P, R (if u have a CD in there and can't get it out, try to hold the mouse button down for 5-10sec then the CD or dvd will eject.

Sometimes these macbooks will go to sleep...appear to be off, but the white pulsing light on the front still is working... the solution if this is the case is to press and HOLD the power button for several seconds... you will hear the hard drive wind down to a stop. Then wait a couple seconds and reboot.
let me know if this gets your PBpro back up!
