    anybody here experienced this?

    i experienced this trice on my less than a month old MBP 13" :redface: after a few seconds nag charge naman. pero this is my 4th mac already. never experienced this on my iBook, macbook white and macbook unibody so i'm alarmed.

    should i worry?

    By "after a few seconds" do you mean 1-3 seconds? or does is take more than 10 seconds?

    Mine also does this but it will last around more or less 2 seconds, even the indicator light in the charger takes a split second or so to change color. . .I think this is normal as your MB will take a split second or more to recognize that it is being charged. If it takes much longer, then its another case.

    @jlerojo, i think around 10 seconds then my battery icon beside the date says 'not charging'. indicator light in the charger in green.

    i will check on natsgo's link and see if this will work on my MBP.

    thanks guys! happy new year! =)

    the same thing happened to my wife's mb. in her case it wouldn't charge at all which is to say when the magsafe adaptor is pulled out, the machine shuts off. brought the mb to senco last night. battery's being replaced under applecare.
