My new 17"pb is doing some weird things (in addition to it's button (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=128405) issue). When I plug in or remove the power adapter, the screen wigs out for a second. It appears as if half of the vertical pixel columns shift over to the right a quarter inch and a bunch of horizontal bars appear. Anyone else seen this, or is my book doa?

Since no one else is posting on this thread, does that mean I'm the only one with this problem?

Sounds like you're having some serious problems.. Vertical lines are often a indicator of a logic board (GPU specifically, but whatever) problem.

Call applecare if you still have it.
