    My Mac won't power up.
    Works only when I plug it in.

    Okay, what kind of computer? PPC? Intel? Desktop or laptop?

    How old is the computer?

    What operating system?

    Does it need a new battery?

    It's a MacBook, version 10.5.8. Had it about 2 years.

    Safari keeps shutting off, so I'm using Firefox.

    It may be that your battery needs replacing. I had that trouble after about 2 years with an early iBook (and many years ago with a Quadra 605). If so, eventually you will not be able to boot up at all.

    You need to be much more verbose for anyone to give you any specific help.

    You originally mentioned the "Mac" not starting up. Now you mention Safari shutting off.

    Is Safari shutting down the computer or just the application Safari is quitting?
    Is this happening while the MacBook is plugged into wall?
