Ok Guys, I need some help. I used to have a 1.33ghz about 2 years ago, and sold it, now i've got a 12" 1.5ghz that is in MINT condition, but one thing is puzzling me. I remember when my battery had gotten low on my old laptop, I could plug it in and it would charge the battery. With this new laptop, the battery will ONLY charge when its either in sleep or powered down. Is that how its always been and I just can't remember that, or is there a way I can change this?

Do a PMU reset and a PRAM reset. Make sure you are using the correct charger. For the 12", the charger is rated at 45 Watts.
