Update: just found some info at the Apple Support site. Link: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=Mac/10.6/en/21502.html Under "Mac OSX 10.6 Help: if the sleep indicator light flashes". They write that, at startup: "If you don’t hear beeps, but the sleep indicator light flashes five times when you start it up or wake it from sleep, its battery may need service. Take the battery to an Apple Authorized Service Provider, such as an Apple Retail Store". And I am having battery issues, in that the Macbook won't boot from battery. I will try to check the battery in another Macbook.
