First and foremost, this situation might be caused by the sleep function that your MacBook uses to save energy. To find out whether this is the cause of the problem, simply press the trackpad mouse or keyboard. If the MacBook display turns on, then it’s the sleep mode that causes the black screen. Remember that you can change the sleep settings at any time. The device can turn off its screen after a few minutes or after a few hours of inactivity if you want to.

If the screen doesn’t turn on even after you click the trackpad, mouse or keyboard, you should check the power supply. If your MacBook is unplugged, plug the power adapter and wait for a couple of minutes before you press the power button. If your device has run out of power, it should turn on once you plug the power adapter.
