It might also just be that apple quality. Macbooks always fail just as they hit apples "vintage" and that machine is not far from it. Another way that you could check is to run windows (boot-camp) and see if it does the same then you can rule out hardware or software. But if it just started working just cross your fingers it keeps working and back up your data.
so i forgot to test it with the usb and the fan plugged in and guess what.... it rebooted. And to make sure i did it again and it happened again. I replaced the mobo for nothing. Ill be returning it. Ill try a different usb plug. This was an old usb cord i gave her recently too after the one she was using started to rip. Ill try another 1 or 2 plugs and see if its just that one.
