comment MacBook Pro only stays on for less than a minute
Also, there was a tiny (pentalobe?) screw sitting on one of the memory chips when I took it out. I wonder if that had anything to do with it?

It's back from the dead! I took the computer apart to reseat the memory and battery cable, and since I had 16GB of RAM I was planning to install this weekend, I put that in as well. Now it's working beautifully!

Now that I'm home, I got the computer to stay on for a couple of enough to get off the 2 files I need most urgently. I have verified the problem happens both when on battery and when on wall power.

@Robuust haven't tried that but I'm rather scared to try because I don't want to damage it by having it in use scanning when the thing shuts off.

@Robuust The computer will boot up normally, but if I bump it at all, even typing on the keyboard, it shuts down again. Edited question to include this.

It's not a stuck power button. Sometimes it lasts until I log in, but then a tiny bump to the computer, even as small as typing on the keyboard, will kill it again.

@Borderline I heard the clunk when I tried it again at my desk. :)
