I have had a couple problems with this macbookpro. sometimes, it does not charge. the ac adapter wasn't lighting and I was losing power. it did start charging when I changed outlets, but there is nothing apparently wrong with the outlet as other thinhs work. the little lite on the plug is sometimes green, sometimes orange. it is 595 charged and is orange right now. anyone know what it should be? I also had problems turning it on, so I have left it on. A bout with bronchitis has kept me from the Best Buy, where I got no help last visit. They did not test the ac adapter, and the computer turned on. I think I will ask for mgr next time as two cracks have appeared near the on button. The Geek Squad guy saw it but said they "wouldn't do anything about this." I know great service. I called the mgr a few weeks back and illness has kept me from returning. It seems there are two separate problems. One maybe with Ac adapter not charging the unit, and a minor fall maybe affected the on/off switch.
It is my only puter needed for hiring medical/household help so I have not wanted to bring it in-they can send it out 4 times before replacing it-under warranty. I just can't deal with the hassle, but I will have to, I guess.
When should the tiny charge light be green, and when orange. It started green, now is orange. I don't have a manual, as computers don't come with them anymore. It is very stressful when you don't have computer (apple esp) knowledge. Any ideas as to what to do. If it charges and turns on in the store (and of course it did first time I went) they just look blank and hand it back.
